Who is your ultimate role model? If you're a Christ's follower, I hope your answer is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! If you're a parent, your ultimate example for parenting should also be Jesus, the Best and Greatest Servant-Leader of all time. This book shows parents how to lead their families by serving with Christlike attitudes. The book covers 4 leadership domains: heart, head, hands, and habits. Is the way you parent driven by fear (self-protection) or pride (self-promotion)? Neither one is healthy. The authors encourage parents to trust God, not self and focus on God, not self and/or others' opinions. I love and appreciate the Christ-centered principles, Biblical insights, and practical wisdom/advice that these three authors offer. This book will make you think about your life purpose and your family's vision, values, and goals. Throughout the book, you will see comments shared by various parents here and there as well as questions to ponder in Pause & Reflect sections. Want to lead like Jesus? Love like Jesus and learn from this book the nuts and bolts of Jesus' leadership. Lead Your Family Like Jesus makes a wonderful gift for any parents, especially all new parents!
