Family Mission Statements

There is something that I think every family needs, a Mission Statement. There's just something very cool about it. We don't have one yet, so I'm planning to do this for one of our upcoming Date Nights.

This can really be anything but broadly it should include a set of guidelines based on your family values... Here is a great resource which highlights the purpose of and how to write a Family Mission Statement

Here are a few different style Family Mission Statements/Mottos that I like...



Okay...not really a personalized Mission Statement, but probably the best
"family mission statement" ever created. Your own mission statement would be cute framed by couple and family photos like this.

from my friend, Meagan


from How Does She?


Even a tile with your family mission statement or a motto like the quote above is a great thing to have in your home!

Hope that inspired you to get creating your own....It sure inspired me!

My husband is a marriage counselor and we are currently writing our first book together. Love your ideas and your celebration of marriage and family!

Gena said...

So funny you posted this today because I've been thinking about this for like a week now. Definitely something I've been wanting to do together! Now I'm even more motivated. Thanks for the ideas and links.

Such neat ideas, never thought of having a family mission statement... neat idea especially for decorating

Heather said...

ok I love that one with the sentences for each letter of the last name, from your friend Meagan!! Did she make those up herself or is there a way for me to cheat, since I am not very creative!!

Cher said...

Heather-- her husband actually came up with that as a gift for her. Pretty sure he just made it up as it fit their family. (Perhaps the reflection that went into it is what made it so special!)

Me (aka Danielle) said...

What a great idea! This has got my creative juices flowing! Thank You!

I talk about the importance of a family plan or core values being known for the family but never thought to frame it. I like this. I think I will mull this over and possibly do. Thanks for the suggestion!

I love this idea! My husband and I have discussed this several times but we haven't sat down and written it. Need to do that ASAP!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Love, love this idea...so enjoyed your blog...

Lisa said...

I made a Family Proclamation with our wedding pictures. It hangs next to our Living Christ (using pictures of Jesus). Although we don't have a lot of "things," we love looking at the two of them together to remind us of our eternal goals. Another idea with the Proclamation (my husband came up with this!) is to make a picture mat frame of your family and children actually doing the themes it talks about.
