Every intentional family needs a reminder of what is important now and again. Family mission statements are all the rage in the blogging world. You can read about them at:
We are that family
Inspired to action
and a host of others I’m sure.
Why have a mission statement? Everyday we have a million things we can do with our time. There are good choices, and then there are the best choices. A mission statement helps us to determine what is MOST IMORTANT, and freedom to ignore everything else.
My husband and I sat down on the couch and listed out all the adjectives we could think of that we want our family to reflect. He listed several and so did I. The ones that we felt most important, and the ones we had in common were the words we decided to use in our mission statement.
I wouldn’t be my imperfect self if I went with the crowd and did a traditional full sentence “statement.” Alexander Creative came up with this BEAUTIFUL poster designed with just with our key “mission” words
Pretty stinkin cool huh? I want to invite all my friends over just to stare at it with me. I am elated over it!
