This is the fifth in a series of podcasts on Raising Resilient Children. Over the course of the next several weeks, we’re going to examine the importance of parents discipling their children. Paul makes a clear admonition in Ephesians 6:4 to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” On this Ephesiology Podcast, we talk with Keelan Cook, father of two little ones, who challenges us to think about raising our children to be missionaries. Often our attentions are divided between the culture’s understanding of what is best for the future of our kids and God’s understanding about what is best. Be careful. This podcast might actually challenge you to be a missionary as well. It will certainly challenge you to be an example of disciple making that your children can follow. Check out Keelan’s blog “Parents, Let’s Raise Up Missionaries.”
