What happened to Mommy Disciple Me? From the very beginning, the vision of this ministry has been to create a holistic approach for families to disciple the next generation. We launched this ministry starting with “mommies” first, but we are now incorporated as Family Disciple Me and are moving our website to familydiscipleme.org to reflect that Mommy Disciple Me will continue to exist as a sub-category under the larger umbrella ministry of Family Disciple Me. Also, as we make the website transition, you will continue to see elements of both.
Is Family Disciple Me (FDM) free? Yes! This ministry is made possible by sacrificial people who are passionate about investing in the next generation.
What happens when I subscribe to FDM? Each Monday morning, you will be sent an encouraging, 60-second email that will give you direct access to the current lesson and applicable content.
Do I have to know the Bible? This program is designed to encourage, challenge and inspire you in your walk with God no matter where you are on your journey with Him!
How much time does this take? FDM is designed to be a resource that you use at your pace along life’s way, according to what works for you!
Do I have to do this every day? No, you don’t. You may choose to use the whole lesson in one setting, then circle back to that conversation in the following days. Or you may use a “W” a day. Whatever works for your life and family is perfect!
What about the social media? The goal of FDM social media is to regularly surround you with visual reminders to keep the current themes and topics fresh in your mind to use as you are able.
Do I Have to Be on Social Media to use FDM? You don’t! If you are already using a platform, then join FDM there! If not, then don’t worry about it! FDM uses Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest as means to give additional resources to accompany the lessons, but these are optional.
Do FDM lessons have to be done in order? One theme at a time will be highlighted through FDM in the “Current Lesson,” but you can access all past lessons and content at any time, according to your family’s needs.
What ages is this for? First of all, FDM is for YOU – no matter what stage of life you are at. As you “Seek Him,” then you are challenged to turn around and “Speak Him” into the lives of those He has entrusted to you, no matter what stage of life they are at. FDM offers a variety of talking points for all ages.
What about my older kids and grown kids? FDM challenges you to use social media to not just relationally but spiritually connect with the next generation. For example, you can text them a verse image or tag them in an FDM Instagram post. Use social media to your advantage in discipling the next generation.
What about dads? We’re happy to say that, though we started this ministry with the Mommy Disciple Me branch, our ministry is now incorporated as “Family Disciple Me.” This has been the vision all along, and we’re thrilled that now everybody who wants to disciple the next generation can find help and encouragement on our website.
