Lead Your Family Like Jesus
(Focus on the Family/Tyndale) – Does your family need a five-star general at the helm? A psychologist? A referee? Ken Blanchard, best-selling co-author of The One Minute Manager and Lead Like Jesus, points to a better role model: the Son of God. Joined by veteran parents and authors Phil Hodges and Tricia Goyer, renowned business mentor Blanchard shows how every family member benefits when parents take the reins as servant-leaders. Moms and dads will see themselves in a whole new light—as life-changers who get their example, strength, and joy from following Jesus at home. This user-friendly book’s practical principles and personal stories mark the path to a truly Christ-centered family, where integrity, love, grace, self-sacrifice, and forgiveness make all the difference.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Lead Your Family Like Jesus is a really pratical book on how to teach your family about God’s leading through the eyes of three well known authors. In the four sections, The Heart, The Head, The Hands and The Habits, there is a section for each author, each giving their insights. I found this book very interesting to be able to have all three authors giving their opinions together so I could compare what they said. They all believe same thing, just say it in a different way. This book is easy to read and understand, is full of practical advise and ideas, and is also full of scripture backing up what is taught.
This is a wonderful book for any family. I encourage you to pick up a copy for your library.
