Disciplemaking At Home by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller Book Review

Disciplemaking at Home by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller is a practical book for parents who want to guide their children in following Christ.  There are a few principles that instruct parents along this journey.  They are Build Relationship, Share Scripture and Practice the Faith.  The book begins by looking toward the destination.  The authors extend a family challenge that gives families the opportunity to deliberately pass on the faith and intentionally work on moral development.  The commitment on the journey is essential.  The book gave several examples of how families taught their children through family time, real-life situations and constant interaction.

I found this book to be directly in line with my focus.  I was encouraged by the simple ways I can be a discipler of my children at home.  It does take hard work and commitment.  But God does give me the wisdom to stay focused and be intentional.  I desire for my children to come to know the Lord and live for Him.  Is this a desire of yours as well?  This book is a great resource to navigate this adventure in discipling children.

*I received this book for review from National Center for Biblical Parenting.  All opinions are my own.*

If you’ve tried Susan’s planner before, there are two major changes for 2014 I think you should know about!

*The 2014 Weekly Household Planner is now FREE!
*It is customizable and includes TWO versions! "Blank" version is just that—a planner with blank areas under each day, allowing you to digitally add your tasks whatever they may be, making it uniquely yours. "Suggested tasks" version comes prefilled with tasks already assigned to each day. The work is already done for you! And it is also customizable, so you can add, remove, or edit any of the tasks listed.

Here’s a sample of the types of tasks you will find in the "suggested tasks" version:

*Plan/cook dinner
*Water indoor plants
*Vacuum under furniture
*Clean/wipe out silverware drawer
*Clean bathroom sinks/shine mirrors
*Wash car
*Pay bills due
*Pamper yourself
*Replace smoke detector batteries

You can further personalize the planner by digitally filling in any special weekly tasks or notes to remember. A fun or inspirational quote is featured each week to remind you about the joys, and sometimes humor, of family and motherhood. There’s even a chart to help you keep track of your daily water intake.

In addition, a Weekly Household Planner Supplement is available for only $6 to further increase organization in your household. The supplement includes helpful tools featuring customizable fill-in forms, allowing you to enter your information directly into each form. The supplement package includes:

*Master Family Planner to keep track of the entire family’s activities on a daily/weekly basis.
*Special Occasion Calendar/Gift Planner so you’ll always be prepared for the next birthday or special occasion.
