If you missed my blog on the thriving leader and his/her family, No. 8 in the series, click here Thriving Leaders: Lessons From the Front Lines of Ministry (pt. 8 “The Family”).

Resources for this week’s important blog on the family:

Nick Stinnett. Building Family Strengths, Lincoln, Nebraska:  University of Nebraska Press, 1979.

The above book may be out of print. I found an article online summarizing Stinnett’s work. He interviewed 14,000 families to find out what made strong families strong. A worthy read:

Here’s an article by a pastor on the importance of guarding one’s ministry from hurting the family:
