Family Mission Statement

Family Mission Statement – email 12/27/2012

Do you have a Family Mission Statement?  What is the point of your family? What are your goals?  A Family Mission Statement can help you answer these questions and provide direction for your family.  It also helps set your priorities which will affect your time, rather than your busy schedule dictating your values.

Winter Picnic

Plan a family picnic out in the cold of winter.  Use this experience to talk about the season of winter – how everything seems cold and dead – yet we know that Spring is coming where life will come bursting forth.  Connect this to our life in Christ.  When have you gone through a season of ‘winter’ in your life?  How did your faith help you through that cold time?  Talk about the wintery season in Jesus’ life that lead to his death on the cross – just like Spring brings new life after winter – Jesus rose from the grave bringing new life to all who believe in him.  Share your winter picnic stories by replying to this post.
