Our Family Vision Statement

The Meadows’ family vision statement is:


Living, loving, learning, leaving a legacy of Christ-followers impacting the world.


It’s an easy statement for us to remember, and it is descriptive of many of our core values:


Life is school


Leading our family to be Christ-followers


Deut. 6:6-8

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.

You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.

Do you have a family vision statement?  Share it!

Love the Deuteronomy commandment. We have not written our vision statement down. But it would sound something like "leading our family to have a heart continually after Christ - and living beyond ourselves."

No reserve. No regret. Love God. Live free.

To Him, through Him and For Him.

That's about it.

Wow! Great insights and parenting. We just started a class at our church on Parenting. We're using the Deut passage this week to talk about a "Parental Mission Statement." I believe this verse is a foundation for Christian parents.

We may come up with a Vision statement in class Sunday. Hope you don't mind that I linked to your blog from our Class Facebook Page, "I brought you into this world - Parenting by the book."
