FHE Lesson {Family Mission Statement}

Opening Song:
Opening Prayer:
Scripture: Proverbs 29:18
The New year is a good time to write a family mission statement.
If you have one already spend sometime reviewing it.
Example on how to write a Family Mission Statement HERE
:: Use a big piece of paper to make a banner that represents your family.
Children can draw things that make your family unique and describe your family
{how many people, where you live, school, temple, church, scriptures, extended family, favourite foods, talents, things you like to do, faith in Jesus, favourite things - flowers, weather etc}

 :: Families with older children could sit and write out a family mission statement.
{Or revisit it if you already have one}  Ours {below} is now 10 years old!!
You could print it out nice and laminate it and display in a central area {ours is on top the piano}
Love at Home

Follow Christ * Humbly Pray * Actively Listen * Seek Knowledge
Encourage Others * Respect Self * Search Scriptures
Speak Softly * Have Fun * Find Humour
Seek Wisdom * Accept Responsiblity
Do Good * Speak Kindly
It can be as long or short or simple as your family decides. It can be funny, or serious or sweet.
Give examples of what you would like included, but ensure the kids get a say too.
Explain your family is the most important thing to you, and uniting our family together creates strong bonds. Our family mission  statement will remind us what is most important to us. Let's read it often!
