Show Notes

The world needs confident men and women of integrity who will lead in their homes, churches, communities, and nations.

Natural-Born Leaders

Natural gifting but may not truly care for those who follow him/her.

If you are raising a natural-born leader, make sure to train them to be a godly leader.

Godly Leaders

Godly leadership is a combination of character, love, and skill.
Godly leaders who make wise decisions and lead people in a way that is good and right. These men and women are rare.

Home Sweet Home

In the home where Jesus is Lord and His ways are put into practice, children flourish. Family members learn to love one another, treat one another with respect, work through conflict honorably, and serve those around us.

Lovers of God

In a home where Jesus is loved, the Bible is obeyed, and problems are attacked with prayer, children grow up to trust the Lord.

A relationship with Jesus is the foundation for good leadership. As we humbly walk with God, He gives us all that we need to leader the people He loves.


A home filled with lovingkindness produces children that are confident. They are willing to try new things and even fail because they know that failures don’t define them.

You see, leaders take risks and sometimes they make mistakes.

Leaders have to deal with criticism and rejection. This requires confidence!


Parents that value education and use all of life to teach their children produce kids who love to learn.

A lifestyle of learning creates a sense of wonder in a child and often a strong desire to pass on what they learn to others.

Children who are raised to do the right thing no matter who is watching and keep their word even if it’s inconvenient grow up to be men and women of integrity. They tell the truth, keep their promises, and expect others to do the same.

I cannot emphasize how important this is. Integrity is a virtue that is being lost in our day.

Effective Communicators

Communication is at the heart of leadership. In the age of technology, leaders often have to be able to speak, text, email, blog, and give sound bites, along with being an example of what they are teaching.

Children who are treated with respect and engage in meaningful conversations with adults grow up to be good communicators with good manners. Yes, manners matter. Simple courtesies that demonstrate respect to others make a huge difference.

Leaders must also handle conflict and be able to disagree with others in a respectful way.

Servant Hearts

In a home where family members help each other out and genuinely care about others’ needs, a servant’s heart is cultivated. Jesus is the perfect model of servant leadership.

Wouldn’t the world be a better place with more Christlike leaders?


A good leader thrives with a manageable schedule and realistic expectations of himself and others. He must manage his time well.

A good leader does not yell, curse, or belittle others in the middle of conflict. This requires self-control.

A good leader must make hard choices and accept responsibility if he made the wrong call, not blame others.

When parents teach their little ones to obey cheerfully, control their anger, stick to a routine, and take responsibility for their actions, children grow up to be self-controlled and disciplined.

As you can see, home is the perfect place to raise the kind of the leaders the world needs today!

Will you step out and raise tomorrow’s leaders?

Do you need help?
