A Little 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. Learn more at http://litfusegroup.com/author/tgoyer
My Thoughts:
Lead Your Family Like Jesus is hands down one of the best {if not the best} parenting books I have read! Sometimes life get busy and overwhelming. LYFLJ is full of encouragement no matter where you are in your parenting adventure! I love the “Pause and Reflect” boxes that fill the book!
So, I’m pretty sure Tricia wrote chapter 11 just for me “Time With God –  A Mom’s Perspective” To Lead Like Jesus, Meet Challenges by Meeting with HIM! In the chapter Tricia address things that I NEEDED! There is a heading in the chapter – GIVE YOUR SELF A TIME-OUT…I truly needed that! Sometimes its hard to find “God & Me” time, but that “God & Me” time is so VERY important when your are raising kids, regardless of their ages! All parents need to spend time in a calm and quite setting with the Lord…but parents…you and I know that that is not really something that you find in a home full of children. For me personally it is found either after the kiddos are in bed or early in the morning before they are awake {I love my mornings with Jesus! It really sets the pace and mood of my day!}
I loved this “Pause and Reflect” in this chapter…
“Have you ever asked someone to pray for you as a parent? If not, why not? If so, what was the result”  
and then there it this….PRAYING FOR OUR KIDS!
My love for this book went beyond chapter 11! I was absolutely hooked at chapter 1! It was full of so many things I needed to hear and have never even thought of! I cannot wait for my husband to start it…neither can he!!
So how do you know if Lead Your Family Like Jesus is right for you and your family?
  • Is your life out of control?
  • Is your life in control?
  • Are you stressed beyond belief?
  • Are you never stressed?
  • Are you worried all the time?
  • Are you afraid you aren’t doing a good job?
  • Are you a parent?
If you answered yes to any of these questions LYFLJ IS FOR YOU! I loved this ENTIRE book and so will you!
