A little while back, Claudia and I decided on a mission statement for our family. We did this because we wanted a statement of purpose for our family and for our home. We also wanted something that would guide the actions of our family, spell out its overall goal, provide a path, and guide decision-making.
Andy Stanley talks about your mission as a ”nonnegotiable imperative,” so this a framework that keeps us on course for where we want to go.
While we have a different one for our marriage, this is our family’s mission statement. It’s a poem by Mary MacCracken which we choose to adopt.
Question: Do you have a mission statement for your family? If you wouldn’t mind, please share it with us in the comments of the post.
