"If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else." -Laurence J. Peter
Took a quick trip over the weekend to meet with some of you awesome K-LOVE listeners in San Antonio and fill up on some yummy Tex Mex food.
On the plane, I sat next to a father of four grown children, so I picked his brain on how he did it. I need all the help I can get.
He said they wanted to raise kids to love and serve God, so they came up with a 5 pillar family motto:
Take Care of each other
Ask what you can do to help and than do it.
They ran every decision they made, and every behavior through those 5 pillars. The kids are all grown now, and they still talk about those 5 pillars.
I love to have a plan and I am an obsessive list maker. I naturally love the idea of having a plan for your family to grow and be successful. Why not have plans for your family? You may have a plan for your career, a budget and savings for college. I don't want to guess at how to get to the destination of raising children to love and serve God, so I want to have a plan on how to get there.
We are raising future adults, after all.
Tell me what's your family mission or motto?
