March 11: Family Priorities (Chapter One)

Welcome to Chapter one of Balanced - Finding Center as a Work-at-Home Mom, By Tricia Goyer.

Determine what your priorities as a family are. Ask yourself a few questions:

What do we want to achieve as a family?
- To have dinner together as a family
- To spend quality time together

What will matter five years from now—ten years from now?
- That my children have a close relationship with one another
- That we're a close knit family who enjoys each other's company

What will mold our children into God-serving adults?
- To take turns praying at dinner
- To spend time reading the bible together
- To connect and serve in our church and community

What will bring peace—not stress—to our home?
- That my children will learn to be a part of the family unit and that chores help the whole household
- To look at what God is doing in our lives and the lives of those around us

So, that's my answers to the questions of chapter one. There are some things I need to implement like the praying and reading the bible with the kids. We do eat dinner most nights as a family, but there's definitely room for improvement. Stay tuned for Chapter Two tomorrow!
