Train children in the way they should go; when they grow old, they won’t depart from it. —Proverbs 22:6

—Spending Time in Prayer
—Reading God’s Word
—Growing Through a Mentoring Relationship
—Finding Community in the Church
—Serving Others
—Taking Time to Rest

My Review:
✮✮✮✮


Melissa Spoelstra did a fantastic job on this fun to read book on practical steps to making Disciples at home. I have found over the past years that taking time to rest has been my hardest thing to, so reading on taking time to rest was the chapter that hit me hard showing me I NEED to stop , the laundry can wait till Monday, it is OK if you need a nap, take that nap! So far this year I have been trying harder to rest on Sunday's after church, but for me that is hard at times to do. I love how Melissa explains things, and adds in scriptures that match what she is saying, like when she talks about taking time to observe the Sabbath day, then ends it with Scripture, "For six days the LORD made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on on the seventh day he rested." That is why the LORD blessed that day and made it holy, because he rested. I don't know about you all but I needed that reminder! 
My second chapter that I just LOVED was " Reading God's Word", I have a VERY hard time just sitting and reading the bible. I have always had comprehension issues so when I read it does not sink in a lot of the time, but I read it and highlight and date what I read . I am now journaling on Sunday mornings so I remember what was taught that Sunday. After reading this chapter, I feel I need to try to read the bible at least one chapter a day, and journal about what I read and date it so I can grow deeper in God's word. Just like the scripture that Melissa added in with the reminding us we are like babies wanting others to feed us , when we who have been followers for a long time should be the ones teaching others. ( Hebrews 5:12)
One of my favorite scriptures out of Hebrews is ( Hebrews 4:12) talking about the word of God is like a two edged sword cutting between soul and spirit! I LOVE THAT!! I mean don't you? I mean God's work teaches up daily of the good and bad, how we should be and how to not be. After reading this chapter , it has made me think about how much I truly serve God. I pray with my children, why not on Sunday's read to them, or do a Mother Daughter Coloring bible journal together? So I know what I am doing for Christmas now, buying some bible coloring journals for my daughters, and myself so we can grow together in God's Word. 
This book is packed FULL of awesome info, and ways for you to GROW. I loved this 205 page book, it was easy to read, easy to follow, and has honestly made me want to grow deeper with Christ as a family. Thank you Melissa for a fantastic book, one I am going to buy a few copies and give as part of my Christmas gifts to some of my church family.
