Hello All,

This is probably way out there, but I wanted to submit an idea...  I have 4 young children, and currently have no way to effectively catechize them and perform structured family worship while I work the odd hours and travel that I do.  This is where Logos could help.

App/software ideas

1. Build a way for me to nest profiles under my profile

2. Build a way for me to track performance of my children in scripture memorization and catechism, perhaps an electronic star chart

      2a.This is the real reason I want to use it - 2/4 of my children know that God made them for his glory...1/4 know that nothing can be hid from him...I'd like an electronic way to track this and communicate with my wife about it.

3. Over-time allow the profiles to morph into faithlife accounts, where my children can buy books, and I can monitor...to a degree...their reading and study

4. Allow the profile to break away as it's own account no longer under my authority

Now - imagine if this structure were used in small group bible studies, or in churches... the average sunday school attendee could sign up for a free account from their smart-phone right there in the class - and start buying materials right away - get into the marketing database, etc.  then enlist their family etc. etc.

Your idea might be be helpful and interesting.  That sort of thing intrigues me.  Also consider this:

1. Software will never replace Dad.  Your kids need a dad with skin on.  That might mean a job change.  It  means that your children and family will benefit most if Dad is physically there and actively touching, speaking, leading, teaching.

2. I am not sure how accurate my modern translation may be, but consider Dt 6:6-9

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.  You shall post them diligently to your children on Facebook, and shall Tweet of them when you sit in your sales meetings, when you board your airplane, when you lie down in your hotel bed, and when you rise up from it.  You shall monitor your wife and children's progress electronically and bind them upon your family with Tweets and gold stars.  You shall write them on Facebook and on your Faithlife personal family / church small group monitoring social media control site."

Maybe someone can correct my errors.
