"I wish I’d had the simple but powerful and persuasive insights offered by Ken, Phil, and Tricia in Lead Your Family Like Jesus when I was raising my son. Nonetheless, because I am convinced that they “nailed” it with this magnificent offering, I intend to purchase several copies of this gem in order to share it with my young mentees as they begin their parenting years. Frankly, I suspect it will be considered their favourite gift of the new year." — Colleen Barrett. President Emeritus, Southwest Airlines Co.

"Ken Blanchard has spent his lifetime studying leadership. Lead Your Family Like Jesus is a fresh and original approach to leadership. Filled with practical parables and good advice, this is a book worth reading. — Bob Buford. Author, Halftime and Finishing Well.

"There is no greater leadership charge than the one God gives us to influence the thinking, behaviour, and development of our children. It’s through our life role leadership we are positioned to teach our children how to reflect the heart and beauty of Christ in the world. Lead Your Family Like Jesus illuminates the example of Jesus and provides all the wisdom parents need to raise up Christ-centred servant leaders. Every parent must read this book to understand how to steward well the sacred trust they’ve been given." — Tami Heim, President and CEO, Christian Leadership Alliance.

"As a pastor, I’m always looking for helpful and practical resources for families. Lead Your Family Like Jesus is phenomenal. The twelve principles presented in this incredible read are wise, biblical, encouraging, and transforming. It’s rare to find one book with so many relational gems. The best part is that these gracefilled truths are applicable to every family situation. I have been a Blanchard and Hodges fan for years; this book is one of their best!" — Kurt Bubna, Lead Pastor, Eastpoint Church, Spokane Valley, Washington.

"In very relatable ways, Lead Your Family Like Jesus takes readers on an engaging ride into the heart of what the Lord asks of us as parents. With Ken, Phil, and Trish being so vulnerable with their own stories — woven around both Scripture and sharing from other parents with similar challenges and triumphs — I felt like I was right there, parenting alongside them. This is a must-read for moms and dads looking for real-life encouragement to be an even better version of themselves — the version God is calling them to be!" — Jim Hauskey.

No matter where you are in life, Lead Your Family Like Jesus meets you where you are today. Be prepared to refer to this wonderful volume time and time again!"  — Sherry Gore, Editor-in-chief, Cooking & Such Magazine.
