Principles are a set of building blocks that creates a foundation in which to live by.
Setting family principles can help the whole family to live and work together and to make each day count and to develop habits for better living.
In order to create family principles, you need to think about the foundation of how you want to live. What do you believe in the most and how would you like your family to function? You are probably doing some of these things already, but defining them will help for a solid base to start really living by them day to day.
You can write them down or even hang them somewhere in your home. You may also want them to be discussed in your household often, so that even the children understand that they should live intentionally each day and that there is a standard by which they should live.
Here are our family principles:
Share with others,
Live without debt,
Place value on people, not things,
Spend time outdoors,
and always take care of each other.
