    Always start with praise and worship.  Thanksgiving. Reading/meditating on the Word. Praying for others and yourself.  That's just my view.

    There are three nouns and five verbs translated worship in the Greek New Testament. Mr. W. E. Vine sums up the conclusion to "worship," "…broadly it ("worship," dm) may be regarded as the direct acknowledgment to God, of His nature, attributes, ways and claims, whether by the outgoing of the heart in praise and thanksgiving or by deed done in such acknowledgment" (Expository dictionary of New Testament Words).
    Now that you have a definition of what Worship really means, we can start there!
    praise  (prz)
    1. Expression of approval, commendation, or admiration.
    2. The extolling or exaltation of a deity, ruler, or hero.
    3. Archaic A reason for praise; merit.

    Thanksgiving \Thanks"giv`ing\, n.

    1. The act of rending thanks, or expressing gratitude for favors or mercies.

    Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving. --1 Tim. iv. 4.

    In the thanksgiving before meat. --Shak.

    And taught by thee the Church prolongs Her hymns of high thanksgiving still. --Keble.

    2. A public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness; also, a day set apart for religious services, specially to acknowledge the goodness of God, either in any remarkable deliverance from calamities or danger, or in the ordinary dispensation of his bounties.

    1. That which is done or effected by a responsible agent; an act; an action; a thing done; -- a word of extensive application, including, whatever is done, good or bad, great or small.

    And Joseph said to them, What deed is this which ye have done? --Gen. xliv. 15.

    We receive the due reward of our deeds. --Luke xxiii. 41.

    Now that those components are defined we can go forward!

    Ok so what we have by breaking it down by definition is a functional "map" to follow!
    Your family can choose to Worship together by Praising God/Jesus through Prayer, Song or even Talking about how much you admire and exalt Him!
    You can Worship together by in Thanksgiving in Prayer, Song, or Talking about how much you appreciate all God/Jesus has done for you. Discuss particular answers to prayer. Times you have avoided danger and you felt His presence!
    Your family can Worship together in Deed, by service within the Church or Community, by spreading the Word, By avoiding Sin!

    I pray this has helped you!

    Factors that play into creating a greater overall family worship, would be that each individual family member strives to create a personal relationship with God themselves. The bible says that they that worship God must worship him in spirit and in truth, and to worship him is personal between you and God. When each family member creates a relationship with him, then to worship God with your family will ultimatley be a greater experience.

    Family worship is one of the most sacred times you can experience. It is best done in honesty and simplicity. One need not make pretensious or grandious sermonettes during this time. Start with prayer, then the Word of God, then end with discussion about what you have learned. Take time to praise God and Jesus for their work in your family's life. Share your day with God as you share it with your family. Above all be REAL.
