My husband Darren and I had some wonderful friends come and visit from North Carolina. During our evening together, they spoke of a family in their church who wrote out their family’s constitution. As, we heard more about this I grew fascinated, so of course that night I searched Pinterest to see examples of what this looked like. And in true “Rice” fashion I took a lot of what I saw, added some of my own thoughts and created what we believe works for our family. We call it our Family Foundation, it is what we hope and pray will be the foundation of our home. I have to tell you in all honesty that since my oldest child just turned 4 this family foundation visual has been more of a reminder to myself then to them (SO FAR). It has helped me at the heart of issues respond in a way that would honor God. Don’t get me wrong I fail A LOT, but it the reminder is always needed and helps make more successes then failures.
We have decided through prayer and council to homeschool our children and this fall we get the opportunity to start preschool and what we are calling tot-school for our oldest 2 (ages 4, and 2). Darren and I felt this was very important to outline our vision for our family foundation first because in all we do we want this to be where we land.
What are some of your family foundations?
