Lead Your Family Like Jesus by Tricia Goyer

Title: Lead Your Family Like Jesus
Author: Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges and Tricia Goyer
Type: Hardback
ISBN: 9781589977204
Synopsis: 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: I am not one to typically read parenting books but I was asked to read this and do a review of it so I thought why not. After reading this I have to say I did enjoy it and all it had to offer. I think this is a good book to read when you are starting out your family of if you already have children. One thing I liked about the book is the pause and reflect portions as they really make you stop and think. I loved how in the praying for our kids they took the song Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes and used it help teach everyone how to pray. Another thing that is enjoyed was the personal stories that were offered to help guide us along. You can use this book in a group setting or just on your own. I would recommend this book to any parent wanting a little guidance that is easy to understand and follow. I received this book in exchange for a fari and honest review. I give it four stars.
