Raising Leaders, Not Followers by Kerry Beck Review, Giveaway, and Free Workshop


Raising Leaders, Not Followers: A Biblical Perspective of Leadership Education by my homeschool friend, Kerry Beck, releases today: Tuesday July 25, 2017. In Raising Leaders, Kerry defines Leadership and Character. Leadership and character are essential skills that every homeschool parent wants to instill in their child. They are Biblically based principles and Kerry explains how homeschool parents can provide these foundations in their child's life. She then goes on to provide strategies to help parents develop a lifelong love of learning in their children. Raising Leaders also provides practical skills that will help your children have a good work ethic, become independent learners, motivate your students to persevere, and encourage them to develop humility. Furthermore, the book provides a list of useful resources. This book is a must read for every parent who homeschools or is even considering homeschooling their child.
