Interview Introduction

My name is Dr. John Street. I have a great passion for biblical counseling and seeing people become very familiar with using the Word of God daily in terms of practical living. I have the opportunity to be with Mike Riggs. Mike, and his wife, Carolyn, are responsible for a ministry called Lamp & Quill Bible Curriculum. I’m very excited about this curriculum because it is designed to help parents, children, churches, across the board, really integrate the Word of God into daily life.

  • What significant factors do you think influence the lack of parent-child discipleship?
  • What are some other contributing factors for the lack of parent-child discipleship?
  • How have you seen these materials be effective in terms of God’s Word in their lives?
