Does your family need a five-star general at the helm? A psychologist? A referee? Lead Your Family Like Jesus points to a better role model, Jesus.
by: Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges and Tricia Goyer
In Lead Your Family Like Jesus, Blanchard, along with Hodges and Goyer, show how every family member benefits when parents take the reins as Jesus-like leaders. Moms and dads will see themselves in an entirely new light—as life-changers who get their example, strength, and joy from following Jesus at home.
The book begins by explaining that leadership is an influence process and that anyone who influences the thinking, behavior, or development of others is a leader—making parenting the most important life-role leadership position most people ever hold. Offering practical examples from real-life parents, the authors encourage the alignment of four leadership domains: heart, the intentions and motivations employed in influencing children; head, one’s viewpoint and beliefs about leading; hands, what a parent actually does while leading and influencing; and habits, how a parent must continually refocus his or her desires to lead as Jesus would.
This user-friendly book’s practical principles and personal stories mark the path to a truly Jesus-centered family, where integrity, love, grace, self-sacrifice, and forgiveness make all the difference.
