2008 Mission Statement...


Years ago, when my 16yog was in a baby seat, I attended a Lutheran Women's Missionary League Spring Rally, where we were guided on writing a mission statement for our selves and home life. With great surprise, when I found it many years later the "goals" section was found to have been true...and although we have traveled across the United States, mostly the "home" section was true as well.

So, here I am with a tweener and two teens, and I am re-evaluating my mission statement. I am so focused on being a created child of God, encourager of my husband, motherhood, a hospitable friend, and live in this time with only the financial blessing HE has given me today. Here it goes...

Shawn Wright's Mission Statement for 2008

This year, with the help of the Lord, I am going to spend time daily in the Holy Word of God...

This year, with the help of the Lord, I will encourage my husband with kind words, loving actions and a gentle touch, keep my home a sanctuary for him and provide tasty and nutritious meals...

This year, with the help of the Lord, I will hug my children each day, pray for them, teach them, listen to them with my eyes looking into theirs, and be their biggest fan...

This year, with the help of the Lord, I will keep my home prepared to receive friends, make the environment welcoming and verbally invite others into our home...

This year, with the help of the Lord, I will not live beyond my means, I will use extra $ toward debt and vacation only within my financial ability...

Hey Shawn! It's great that you are blogging again! Did you resolve your coffee shop owner vs. home maker crisis mentioned in "Yearning"?
I love your mission statement. . . it's awesome.

OH, YEA!!! You are 'back on'! Your mission statement says it all...what every wife and mother should feel and do...thanks for saying it with His Word! Yup...ice is the best of those things if you have a craving, I think, BUT really hard on the teeth. AND...you are such a young mom! Kelly will be 36 in April, then 35 and 34...and our baby, the one the cops always have to watch...28 this June. I am sooo old! I miss you!<><
