Last week, I gave the assignment of making a mission statement, with some input from our husbands. But as the week went on, I couldn't come up with one for me. So I did some research on-line. It shed a bit more light on the whole thing.
I knew what I wanted but didn't know how to write my own. A mission statement is something that declares what you and your family are doing. It will help you as you choose goals, or when someone asks for some help. It will help you eliminate things automatically.
The mission statement goes in the front of your folder - that way you can see it every time you open it up.
My mission statement
• as a wife, serving my husband
• as a mother, caring for my children
• as a teacher, ensuring that lessons are done
• as a babysitter, making sure that babies are well-cared for
• as a friend, listening with a heart to help
I want to be passionate about pursuing God in my life and not stuck in a “rut”.
Colossians 3:23-24 “23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

Next we talked about priorities and two ways to look at things.
