Lead Your Family Like Jesus By Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges, and Tricia Goyer

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

 Book Description:

 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:

Lead Your Family Like Jesus is a practical book by three different authors: Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges, and Tricia Goyer.  This book is very thought provoking and truly spoke to my heart about leading my family like Jesus. This book is divided into four main sections: Hearts, Head, Hands, and Habits. From there it breaks down further with unique insight from each of the authors. This book is not like other parenting books that seem to have a formula on how to have the "perfect" family. The authors look at the reality of parenting and leading a family. This book will encourage you to be the best parent you can be.The authors challenge you to set goals, values and live with Christ as the cornerstone of your family.  The personal stories they told really bring the teaching alive and made them more real. The practical ideas show you how to apply them to your family.  I truly enjoyed this book and its unique approach to family. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is parenting. It is truly thought provoking and touches the heart.
