  1. I wish all leaders can read this especially men who are believed to be heads of families. If men could learn what it means to be head of a family, the rate of divorce would decline.

  2. Love this post, Jarrid! I hope we all look at this and reflect on our leadership in our families and communities. This could be applied to a husband in a marriage, right?–I assume this since a man is supposed to be the “head” in a marriage
