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.
