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.

Meet the Author

Ken's passion is to inspire and equip people to lead like Jesus. He may be recognized for his insightful books and theory of leadership, but he is celebrated as a humble man who models what he teaches. Ken is cofounder of Lead Like Jesus and chief spiritual officer of the Ken Blanchard Companies, an organization dedicated to workplace learning, employee productivity, leadership, and team effectiveness.

From the Publisher

Does your family need a five-star general at the helm? A psychologist? A referee? In Lead Your Family Like Jesus, Blanchard, recognized as one of the world's top business leadership experts, points to a better role model: Jesus. In Lead Your Family Like Jesus, Blanchard, along with Hodges and Goyer, shows how every family member benefits when parents take the reins as servant-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 then encourage the alignment of four leadership domains: heart, the character and values 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 do.

Published in cooperation with Focus on the Family, this book provides twelve powerful parenting principles, which are easily extendable to grandparents and other caring adults within a family; Pause and Reflect questions; and Points to Ponder - making it an excellent selection for both personal reading and group discussion.

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.

    New York Times bestselling author Ken Blanchard collaborates with Phil Hodges, Cofounder of the organization "Lead Like Jesus, and bestselling author Tricia Goyer in the book "Lead Your Family Like Jesus." The authors begin by showing the relationship of leadership to the role of parenting. They stress the importance of following Jesus' example of servant leadership.

    Meaningful practical personal examples and real life testimonies of parents illustrate the concepts discussed in each of the four parts of the book, which focus on: The heart, the head, the hands, and the habits of parenting. Each part covers three of the twelve Biblically based principles of parenting discussed throughout the narrative.

    The reader friendly format suggests thoughtful probing questions designed for taking time to pause, reflect, and offers specific ways for implementation. Another unique feature is the "Points to Ponder" review of key elements included within the chapters. These are found at the end of each of the four divisions. Several clearly presented powerful teaching diagrams provide a visual means of assimilating the material, for review, application, and a deeper study.

    "Lead Your Family Like Jesus" is ideal for classes on parenting, for couples, for men's accountability groups, or women Bible study classes. It is a book for parents, grandparents, family counselors and pastors. Highly recommended.

    A complimentary copy of this book was received for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

    What does it mean to lead? How do I lead effectively? How do I get my children to follow my leading? Parenting is filled with questions. Want to take the guess work out of finding the answers? This is a book filled with practical suggestions for ways to lead your family the way the creator of the family meant for it to be done.

    Using Biblical principles, Tricia Goyer, Ken Blanchard, and Phil Hodges take turns sharing from their hearts and their experiences about how parents can turn their families into Christ-centered, God honoring families. They share how parents can do this by examining how a parent's heart, head, hands and habits can be turned into selfless acts of service to their family, thus giving them the joy and confidence they've been looking for in parenting.

    You will find this book to be broken down into short manageable chapters for even the busiest of parents. It also offers pauses in reading to offer a time of reflection.

    This book is one you will want to keep on your bookshelf for future reference. As a parent of grown children as well as a teenager, I have found that although the principles stay the same, our children go through many stages and changes. Information that may have seemed less pertinent at the first reading will later become applicable and helpful.

    Being a parent is hard. The challenges are never ending and ever developing. It's also one of the most rewarding roles many of us have. The delight of a child's hugs or the joy in her laughter makes changing one more diaper worth it. But even on the best of days, I know I need help and inspiration. That's why I'm always on the lookout for books like Lead Your Family Like Jesus.

    In Lead Your Family Like Jesus, Tricia Goyer, Ken Blanchard, and Phil Hodges combine to give us strategies on how to parent and lead our families like Jesus, the Creator of families. They focus on four main areas: Heart, Head, Hands and Habits. Each chapter has opporutnities to pause and reflect on the principles and how to apply them to your family. There are also multiple opportunites to interact with the ideas through checklists. Then each large section has a review with points to ponder. Combined these make it easy to take the ideas and principles and spend time thinking about if and how you would incorporate them into your family.

    This book is practical. It's about giving you tips and strategies -- without piling guilt on about one more thing you aren't doing right. So if you're desperate for some fresh insights or you just want to recharge, this book with its short, practical chapters will be a great addition to your parenting library.

    "Why is a single gal like her reading a book for parents in leading their families?"

    Good question. I wanted to read the book for a few different reasons. I wanted to read, learn, and see how this book could help me in the areas of:

    1. my own personal family. I am an aunt to three, sister, and daughter.

    2. my job since I work with children.

    3. my ministry since I work with our youth.

    Let me tell y'all...this book is AWESOME!!! (And, I am so not just saying that either!) The authors put in a lot of great advice, personal testimonies, principles to follow, and Scriptures to encourage and help in being a "servant leader". So many times, I have been guilty of being a "self-serving" leader and not a "servant-hearted" one. I want to be the best that I can be (play the army music with that-lol). I know that I will never be perfect. I will fall short at times, but I want to love and serve with all I am/have. I want to be better equipped in dealing with others (whatever their age). I don't want to be one that "harps" all the time, but one who disciplines out of love, respect, and gets the point across without beating them over the head with it. I also know that this book will be something I will keep for when I have my own family one day (if it's His will).

    Lead Your Family like Jesus, by Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges and Tricia Goyer

    Great book full of practical ideas, to be servant leaders of Godly households. This book will encourage you to be the best parent you can be. Challenge you to set goals, values and live with Christ as the cornerstone of your family. I really enjoyed all the personal stories they helped to bring the teaching alive and made them more real. The practical ideas show you how to apply them to your family. I would highly recommend this book to all parents.
