Update on Family Mission Statement

Last week, I was trying to figure out the best way to frame our family mission statement. I was looking for an inexpensive option that could be revised and updated as the years pass.

I decided on a very easy option. I bought a three-panel frame from IKEA (each picture is 5 x 7), ordered one of my favorite Etsy prints, turned one of our photos into black-and-white in Picasa, ordered a 5 x 7 print of it on Snapfish, and typed our family mission statement into a Word document, and printed it on gray resume paper.


I love that we can very easily revise our family mission statement over the years. I also love that the photo can be easily updated as our family changes.

I decided to put it right over the toilet, so Matt can visit it frequently (since he pees in that direction), and I can review it whenever I brush my teeth.

When I saw your first post about a family mission statement, I showed it to my partner. She though it would be neat to do a wall in chalkboard paint and paint the 'core' values the parents have chose and then let the kids add to it as they get older.
