What is the purpose of my family?

I have been thinking a lot lately about my family.  Imagine that a mom thinking about her family, but on a more serious note I have been thinking about who and what my family is.  In Proverbs 29:18 it states: ” where there is no vision the people perish”.   So what is the vision for my family?  How to I go about finding it?  Then how do we live our life in lite of our vision?

I want to have not only a mental thought about what the purpose for my family is, but a written out statement.  One that my husband, my children, and myself can articulate.   Something written out as a reminder for my family of what it is God wants to do in and through us. When we are trying to make decisions for our family we can go back to the statement and see if the choices fit into our vision.

I am still on the journey of  finding what our purpose as a family is going to be.  So what steps should I take?

1.  What is a purpose statement?

2. Why should my family have a purpose statement?

3.  How do I develop a family purpose statement?
