Lead Your Family Like Jesus Review and Giveaway

My family is my most important accomplishment I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. Growing up, my mom had a lot of mental issues, so my childhood was not a happy or stable one.

Growing up that way made me vow that when I was an adult and had children, I would do my absolute best to raise my kids to be happy and healthy adults. Thanks to God, He has definitely shown me how to be a wonderful parent.

Now, I can also thank this amazing book by Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges, and Tricia Goyer — Lead Your Family Like Jesus, as another tool that has helped me to raise my children.

About the book:

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.

I truly love books that make me want to be a better parent. This is one of those books that does that. The authors put in a lot of great sound advice, personal testimonies of their own parenting issues, principles to follow that will help and challenge you, as well as Scriptures to encourage and push you into that role of being a “servant leader”.

    My best parenting tip is to stick to a daily routine. Children thrive in a stable routine. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Amanda says

    My best parenting tip is prayer and to not be afraid to say “I don’t know what to do” and reach out to someone seasoned for advice :)

    I’m expecting my first baby next month and my hubby and I are constantly talking about how to parent Biblically. This book sounds like it would be a great resource for us! Thanks for sharing it!

    Listen, really listen, when your children speak to you. You might learn something important. Thanks.

  5. Rachel Gordon says

    My parenting tip is take a genuine interest in what your child likes to do and spend time doing that activity with them. Just be with them.

    My advice from raising 4 boys is to always listen to your children, when they dont mind you(discipline them) and I dont mean abuse them, u spare the rod u spoil your child and they wont ever respect u,if u dont do what u say.Get involved with your kids inevery way and teach your kids about God and take them to Sunday school,always remember your children come first in your life next to God, when your kids are old enough teach them responsibility by giving them chores, its very important to be a good role model because your children learn what they live, your words arent as effective as your actions,tell your kids you love them and show them by being there always for them without being judgemental or expecting them to be like you.

  7. Cassandra Eastman says

    Mine is not to always tell children what to do, but show them with our actions. They follow our example much more than anything we could ever tell them with out words!

    Prayer. Let them see you pray. Let them have chores. Play with them. Listen. Be involved with their education.

  10. says

    Make sure that your children know they can come to you about anything at all. Even when parenting gets tough, never give up on them. Show each of your children the same love an affection.

  11. kamoons says

    I believe your children need to know you’ll love them no matter what they do, nothing can change it. Your love is always there.

  12. Stephanie Larison says

    Don’t be pressured into doing a certain type of parenting style. What works for another family isn’t always going to work for you the same way. Do what you feel is best for your own family.
