Swimming Pool Discipleship

100_0554.jpgEvery summer when we take our trip back to Iowa, my girls take swimming lessons.  And every summer I'm amazed at how these ladies work with my daughters to teach them to swim.  They don't even realize it, but these lessons provide an incredible picture of what discipleship is all about.  In a nutshell, here's what they do: 1) They develop a relationship of trust

2) They show them how to do it

3) They do it with them

4) They give constant encouragment along the way
