I have felt for a while now that our family needed to make a mission statement and I talked to Ike about it. Separately, we wrote down the things that we thought were most important to our family. When we came together we combined our lists and the Carr Family Mission Statement was born.
In The Carr Family:
We Believe in Jesus Christ.
We show respect to the Lord by keeping His commandments and serving others.
We ignore any distractions that keep us from doing our job.
We learn from our mistakes,
But we do not dwell on them.
We keep moving forward.
We help each other so that in the end,
There are no empty seats.
Ike and I are going to strive to raise our family according to this mission statement. We are in this for the long run and we want to make sure we do this right.
