You may have heard the saying that you know you're a leader because people are following you. Sometimes those people come up to you hip and call you mom, and don't actually follow that well. You are still their leader.
I wrote this devotional for the Encouragement Cafe thinking of women in leadership positions, but as a parent, these same principles apply. As you are raising your kids to be responsible members of their own households someday, keep these thoughts in mind.
I would love to hear what you are doing to grow as a leader in your circle of influence!
