Family worship may seem like a complicated, daunting task, but James Grant gives some simple advice to handle some of the complications that we men face:
I have discovered that men who have not lead their families this way are generally uncomfortable with starting this out.

His advice is simple and practical, geared for families with young children, suited for those who have had trouble beginning this time. In his article he elaborates on these three, simple steps:
- Plan to have family worship after an evening meal
- Read through a good book (like this one)
- Say the Lord’s prayer after reading the book
