I have read so many books declaring the success of family, home school, budgets, goals, and the like after creating a mission statement.
Obviously there is no magic in the writing of a mission statement but the idea of having one has always intrigued me. Being able to write your goals out and publicly display them does add an extra element of accountability to whatever you are working on.
We have now been homeschooling for 3 solid years and I have finally narrowed down what we are trying to accomplish. In all fairness to “Echo in Celebration” by Leah Bortins, most of my mission statement has been molded after reading her book. Never have I read a book that spoke so clearly to my heart. I have many of the pages “dog eared” and highlighted on so when I get lost on our journey I can go back and be inspired.
Our Family Mission Statement
Jesus called Himself the Word
– therefore we will seek to know everything about words
Jesus tells us all creation reveals His glory
– therefore we will delight in the study of science and math
Jesus commands us to sing praise to Him
– therefore we will work at learning music notes
Everything belongs to Jesus
– therefore we will learn the tools of learning everything
Because we are His workmanship created to bring Him Glory!
I know that only by God’s grace can we grow in His knowledge, but it is my hearts desire that I don’t forget why we have chosen the road less traveled.
Have you created a mission statement, and has it been helpful?
