family mission statements.

A few years ago I began the process of writing a family mission statement.  I had to think about what was really important to our family, what we wanted to teach our kids, what kind of people we wanted to be in the world, and what kind of family we wanted to be.
It took some time but it has made all the difference to our family.  Opportunities have presented themselves that have helped us accomplish the things that we had said our family is all about.  Like serving others and opening our home up to those in need.
I think it is such a good idea, after you write it place it in a spot where you will see it.  It's also something that you'll want to update often, as your family changes and grows.
For inspiration just google family mission statements and see what you find.
