Family Vision

A few friends have asked us to upload our entire Family Vision.  This is the collection of our hopes and dreams for our family, wrapped up as affirmations.  It was from this very detailed picture that we created our Mission Statement.  My hubby and I both have English degrees, so we had a BLAST working out the perfect wording for each sentence.  Not everyone loves that, but we do.  I stressed that it was too long, and that no one would ever be able to memorize it.  But then I's MINE!  So it doesn't matter!  It is perfect for our family, and that's what matters.  I wanted it to be a document that we would ponder and search for meaning.  Your family's Vision will be unique, there is no right or wrong length or wording.  Make it your own, and be proud of it.  Here it is (it's a work in progress):

"We are producing democracy-defending leaders who contribute to building the Kingdom of God through mission-driven faith, wisdom and action.  We are developing and utilizing the talents of these great minds and faithful hearts who are anxiously engaged in proclaiming the gospel, perfecting the Saints, and redeeming the dead.  We are a Christ-centered and temple-attending family whose sole purpose is building up the Kingdom of God and bringing to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.  We counsel not the God of Heaven in our actions.  We seek the Lord's will and honor Him through obedience and sacrifice.  We exercise and honor the Priesthood of God.  We strive for perfection while recognizing our frailties before God."
