My Mission Statement

Last week, I downloaded and read Kat's Mission Statement for Moms e-book.  I started working on my own Mission Statement and finally finished it this morning and wanted to share it here.  As I have shared many times on this blog- and it is purpose of my blog in the first place- I am trying to be more intentional about how I live and the choices I make.  I want to examine my life in the light of God's Word and my position in Christ.  So, creating a Mission Statement for my life seemed a natural step in this process.

Here is my first attempt:

To find soul satisfaction through the pursuit of a love relationship with Jesus and to walk in freedom, victory and abundant life with Him.

To pursue a passionate love relationship and deep friendship with T by being a compassionate helpmate, esteeming him higher than myself and being one who does not keep a record of wrongs .

To be a loving, patient, gentle, engaged and fun loving mother to my children who points them always to Jesus with my words and my actions.


To be a well rounded woman and grow into all the potentials God has created in me by taking time to rest, refresh, reflect and process this life through prayerful writing and sharing with others.


To be a loving and compassionate friend and family member by listening to and serving others as God gives me opportunity to be His hands and feet.

Kat suggests that you live with your first Mission Statement attempt for awhile- seeing if it fits, revising and tweaking it as necessary until it truly reflects and inspires you.  In all honesty, these words seems to be quite a stretch from where I am right now as a believer, wife, mother, woman and friend but that's the point, right?  To be inspired to grow by His grace!  For He is "the God who gives life to the dead and speaks of things that are not as though they were."  Romans 4:17

Now, hop on over to Inspired to Action and get the tools to write your own Mission Statement.  If you do write one (or have already), please share!

I love this idea!!!! I'm going to work on my own mission statement. I find that I have so many interests and goals and dreams that I miss the big picture(s). A mission statement(s) will help narrow that down.
love you! Andrea

Great mission statement! I need to do that, too!

Btw, I've been a bad manager of computer time this week... giveaways and days that are too HOT have killed my self-discipline. Just thought I'd share that with you (I think about you when I get on at "off" times... like an unknowing accountability partner) :)

Natalie,
As always, this is wonderful. Love your heart for intentional living for His glory!

Natalie said...

Thanks, Michelle! I laughed out loud when I read how i am your unknowing accountability partner because I do the same thing when I am over my time- lol

Natalie said...

Thanks, Trisha, you are so sweet!

Well done!
