Family Mission Statement

For my parenting class we had to come up with a family mission statement & it really got us thinking about what our family should truly stand for & what kind of vision we want our children to someday live by. This is just one part of our total mission statement, defining the values we want our family to live by, but it is our hope that this will provide you with ideas and inspirations for defining your very own mission statement!

"A mission statement defines any entity's reason for existence. It embodies its philosophies, goals, ambitions and more. Any entity that attempts to operate without a mission statement runs the risk of wandering through the world without having the ability to verify that it is on its intended course."

"You have a purpose in life. You know in your heart what's most important to you. In fact, your mission and values are expressed every day, by how you live—you just may not realize it." {Franklin Covey, Mission Statement Builder}
