The Starter’s Guide to Leading Your Family
Christian men often find the task of family leadership so daunting, we withdraw from it into distant uninvolvement. It can leave one’s wife and children with the impression that a man doesn’t care enough to lead, or doesn’t want to. But the heart of the problem often is, we’re intimidated by realizing we simply don’t have the basic tools. Mighty Men is a booklet that can change that.
Many Christian men today had little or no training for the role we now find ourselves in. This book provides a “starter kit” for men reluctant to take the reins of spiritual leadership in their homes. It shows the path to imitating Christ in loving, servant headship to those family members who look to us!

The focus on God’s enabling power will be an encouragement to every reader.” — Tedd Tripp, author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart and Instructing a Child’s Heart
