SR 770: Raising Leaders with Love and Faith – Nanette Brown, Part 1

“The greatest leader is the greatest servant” – Nanette Brown

Nanette Brown joins Yvette Hampton for a transformative conversation on the L.E.A.D.E.R. framework – a powerful acronym that stands for Love the Lord, Encourage in God’s word, Ask God in prayer, Depend on the Lord, Evangelize, and Rest in the Lord. Discover practical tips for raising children who are not only grounded in faith but also poised to be exemplary leaders. Nanette, a seasoned homeschooling mom, shares her wisdom on guiding both naturally inclined leaders and followers, involving children in church activities, and the vital role of influential figures in kids’ lives. If you’re eager to inspire leadership in your children and cultivate a heart for service and giving, this episode is a must-listen!

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of this important conversation.
