Day 29: Stand United

A few nights ago, my oldest son gave us a family home evening lesson about Captain Moroni and the Title of Liberty. He compared it to The Family: A Proclamation to the World and how we need to know what we stand for as a family.

So we took out my giant roll of brown kraft paper and made ourselves a family banner….

As we colored and wrote words and phrases about the things that are most important to us, peace streamed into our home.

And now it’s hanging above our banister in all it’s imperfectly glorious perfection. I don’t know how long it will stay there, but I love it because it’s ours. It came from our hearts and it represents what we believe and hold rooted deep in our hearts as a family.

What does your family stand for? Are you united in your standards and beliefs?

As we anchor our families to the values we hold most dear, we can be a strong, support network for one another and even become very best friends.

Truly, a family united is a peaceful family…

    I love your awesome family banner and the thoughts on being united. When raising our children we made a family constitution. It helped us stay focused.

    What a great idea to make a family constitution! I'd love to hear details about that! It would be so fun to make!
