Do you have a misson statemement for your family?
We are taught to have a mission statement for our business and a mission statement for our churches but I also believe you should know your why for anything major that God has entrusted into your care.
I believe you should get a mission statement for your marriage, your family/home, and your life’s purpose.
After reading a book by Dr. Stacia Pierce called “Designing an Intentionally Successful Home,” I really saw the importance of creating a family mission statement and right away my husband and I created our mission statement for our family.
Here is our (The Ewharekuko’s) mission statement:
“With God first, we are life long learners who enjoys rich literature, stimulating next level conversations, luxurious environments and entrepreneurship.
We were created to have an intimate relationship with God and to tell others of his goodness. We each use our God given gifts, skills, talents and purposes to serve God, others and to create generational wealth for ourselves, lineage and the kingdom of God.
We are a family that loves to laugh, is unified, loving, beautiful, confident, healthy, wealthy and joyful!”
A mission statement should declare the why behind, why do we exsist? What is our purpose? What are our core values. What do we stand for? What is our aim or goal?
I believe in the power of the spoken word. Whatever you think and speak about your life, you will receive it.
Job 22: 28 KJV
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy way
Proverb 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
If you are single with children, single without children, married without children or married with children, you need a mission statement.
Bring your whole family and go over your mission statement together, that way everyone can be on the same page and is clear about the family’s mission.
It is also benefical to have a mission statement because when things, people and situations rises up that are not in alignment with your mission statement, you can cut it off or stop it from entering into your famliy.
When every person in your home knows the family’s mission statement, it creates accountability within your family and brings the family closer together.
You can really set the tone in your home and in your atmosphere when you a have a clearly defined mission statement.
Ladies since we are the influencers in our home, along side our husband, it really helps us to implement the health, beauty, peace and joy in our home.
Our mission statement can be a blueprint for how our homes are ran.
I know for me, I use minimalism as a tool to beautify my home. I like simplicity, luxury, wonderful aromas and things in order. I am constantly purging and decluttering because that is what I need for my space to look beautiful and feel organized. I feel overwhelmed with to much stuff that I am not using.
This process is not always easy with 4 children who are constantly busy around the house creating things.
As soon as you think you have decluttered to the max, you look up and wonder how is this stuff getting back into my space. So I have stay on top of it.
I would love to hear your family mission statement. Please write it in the comment section below.
