Litfuse Review:Lead Your Family Like Jesus by:Blanchard/Hodges/Goyer


About the Book:
Powerful Parenting Principles from the Creator of Families
(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 Review:
First of all, I was wondering how many of you ever read the dedications of a book. Ya know, the part of the book wear the author or in this case authors dedicate the book to someone. The authors really made me smile on this one. It was such a sweet sentiment.

To all parents everywhere who quietly go about the work of pouring their lives and unconditional love into the hearts of their children.

Okay now on to the juicy details........

Ken Blanchard, Tricia Goyer, and Phil  Hodges collaborated on this book with each in their own right having families and enough years under their belts raising them to give us all a few pointers on how to get better at doing it ourselves. The authors go about giving us insights into what has worked for them and their families over the years. Putting God first will always, always always lead you down the best path for your family. The authors have also given pause and reflect tips at the end of each chapter. As well as Points to ponder and final thoughts. We need to focus on glorifying God even in leading our families not just in our own personal spiritual walk. If we do this then we will get the best out of our children.
