Better Mom Monday ~ Family Mission Statement

As I mentioned earlier this past week, I'm embarking on Joyful Mothering's 31 Days to Clean Challenge. On her Facebook page today she posted something about another blogging link-up called Better Mom Mondays that I thought sounded right up my alley: "Every Monday join in on Better Mom Mondays by adding your blog, and by checking out all of the others listed! Posts can include the topics of mothering, marriage, homemaking, discipleship, recipes, organization and more." This also goes right along with today's first 31 Days to Clean Mary Challenge - creating you and your family's personal mission statement! My "cleaning mission statement" is simple - being more organized will help us all to function better and live/work/play together more happily! I also joined The Distracted Divas for even more accountability! :) To make my family mission statement I used the Mission Statement Builder that Ruth from The Better Mom shared on her post from today. Here's what I came up with:

Addison Family Mission Statement: We will strive to be a family that loves God, is helpful and encouraging to one another and that finds joy in every day.

Our Family Values: Kindness, encouragement, faithfulness, helpfulness, quality time, learning

Ways to Purse Those Values: Encouraging one another, participating in different types of things together, praying daily for one another, trying to keep a joyful attitude/mindset, making sure each person's needs are being met

Our Verse: "...always [give] thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Submit to one another, out of reverence for Christ." - Ephesians 5:20-21

I feel that this verse is a good one for our family because it reminds us of three very important things:
1. To give thanks in every circumstance.
2. To submit to one another - encourage, help and put them above ourselves.
3. To do it all for God!
