The term I walked away with this time was "followership”.The founder of ICC, Teresa Moon, says she would hold Followership Conferences, but no one would attend, so she has leadership conferences that promote followership.
The concept is that everyone leads someone and everyone follows someone. Before we choose to follow someone else we should check to see who they are following, because in reality we will be following them too.
This is a guide we can use to help us direct our children in relationships. Look who their friends are trying to emulate and weigh whether or not this is who you want your children to emulate. "We need to choose community with our same values; or we will become what that community values."
As moms, we may not feel like we are a leader, but we are. But, the only way to be an effective leader is to follow the right Leader. Being a Christ follower and letting His Word be the guide is how we can lead our families confidently. Remember Who we follow is Who our children will follow too.
