Hi Steve, I think discipleship is taught and caught. Teaching happens in all kinds of forums, Jesus taught the disciples as he discipled them.

In a way that almost lines up with our modern concept of vocational education which says that when you immerse a person in an appropriate environment or workplace, learning results through guided experience which is then debriefed and processed. Something that Jesus did exceptionally well, and from what you are alluding to here you have also done well with your family.
