Does your discipline strategy focus more on merely stopping bad behavior or on shaping your child's heart?

Episode 18: The Key to Evangelizing a Secular Culture
Despite its rich Christian heritage, America is rapidly sliding into secularism at an unprecedented rate. Join me in this insightful conversation with Bryan Osborne from Answers in Genesis as he unpacks the key drivers of this cultural shift and provides critical insights for effectively communicating Biblical truth and the Gospel to a secular-minded audience.

For 13 years, he boldly and enthusiastically taught Bible history in a public school system in Tennessee; and for 20 years, he has helped youth and young adults in the church to know and defend their faith.

Episode 15: Teach Your Children the Bible – Even if You Never Learned It Yourself
Bible literacy is a growing concern in the Church, even among those who grew up in Christian homes. Sometimes our children know the Sunday School stories, but they don’t know how to read and study the Word for themselves. Join me as I have a discussion with Abby Banks about the case for Bible literacy, why it’s important to find resources that dive deeper than simply learning Bible facts, and how families can start studying whole books of the Bible together – even if you never learned yourself! Abby Banks is a former classroom teacher, now homeschool mom of five and pastor’s wife. Even though she grew up in a Christian home, she was never taught how to read and understand the Bible. After learning how to deep dive into the Word using the inductive method, Abby has taught it to kids, teens, and women in various church and homeschool contexts for the last 20 years. Her Inductive Bible Study Courses for K-12 give families a step-by-step resource for learning to study the Word together. You can find her at 4onemore.com and the Homeschool with Moxie Podcast.

Episode 13: Building a Homeschool Castle to Last for Generations
In this week’s episode, I chat with veteran homeschool dad Davis Carman about how to build a lasting multi-generational homeschool legacy. Davis compares the homeschool journey to constructing a medieval castle; it takes time, intentionality, and a focus on a strong foundation. But with the Lord’s blessing, it will stand the test of time! Davis Carman got started on his homeschool adventure with a providential two-by-four on the side of his head. Twenty-six years and seven graduates later, he hopes to share some of the lessons he’s learned along the way to help other families enjoy the most successful, satisfying, and Christ-centered homeschool possible. He is the president of Apologia Educational Ministries, the #1 publisher of creation-based science, math, and Bible curriculum for homeschooling families. He blogs at apologia.com/blog and is the co-host of the Let’s Talk Homeschool podcast. He believes that if there was ever a time to homeschool, it is now!

Episode 10: Re-establishing Dad’s Role as Family Shepherd
In this episode, Caleb Stomberg joins me for a discussion about the role of fathers as the shepherds and spiritual leaders of their homes. Caleb shares Biblical wisdom and practical tips for fathers seeking to reclaim this vital role in their families, even if you feel ill-equipped to do so. It’s time to re-establish Dad’s role as family shepherd and pass on a robust faith to the next generation! Caleb Stomberg is the pastor of Legacy Reformed Baptist Church in Northwestern Minnesota. He and his wife Lindsey are blessed with seven children. Together they host the website and podcast located at ReformedFaithandFamily.com, dedicated to equipping Christian parents to disciple their children in the faith. They just finished a series on the podcast relating to the Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life; and Lord-willing, they plan to start a new series soon about having a “Kingdom Mindset” and raising the next generation of disciples well by reforming our worldview to reflect more of God's Word and less of the “spirit of the age.”  Connect with our guest:  reformedfaithandfamily.comreformedfaithandfamily.com/swag-shopfacebook.com/ReformedFaithandFamilyinstagram.com/reformed_faith_and_familyyoutube.com/@LegacyRBCtwitter.com/ReformedFF Resources for this episode:  The Five Solas: Signs to Follow on the Narrow Path, by Lindsey Stomberg and Danika Cooley – reformedfaithandfamily.com/product/the-five-solasMoses and the Exodus: A Family Bible Trivia Game – FamilyDiscipleshipPodcast.net/moses Follow the Family Discipleship Podcast on your favorite social and podcast platforms: Website: FamilyDiscipleshipPodcast.netFacebook: facebook.com/familydiscipleshippodcastInstagram: instagram.com/family.discipleship.podcastYouTube: youtube.com/@familydiscipleshippodcastSermonAudio: familydiscipleshippodcast.net/sermonaudio Apple Podcasts: familydiscipleshippodcast.net/appleSpotify: familydiscipleshippodcast.net/spotifyiHeart: familydiscipleshippodcast.net/iheart Amazon Music: familydiscipleshippodcast.net/amazon The Family Discipleship Podcast is published every week, Lord-willing, by Christian Horstmann.
