DIY Family Mission Statement


Create Your Own Family Mission Statement
Our family had so much fun creating our own mission statement that I wanted to share this easy DIY Family Mission Statement with all of you!

Becoming a wife and a mother has always been something I’ve looked forward to. I’ve always wanted to be the wife that my husband loves to come home to, and the mom that is around to share all the big and little moments of my children’s lives. I will be the first to admit I am not perfect BUT I don’t expect to be and am happy to learn and grow each day along with my little family.

My husband and I created goals for ourselves back in January but we really wanted to have a focus for our family too. We decided to have a night dedicated to writing our very own Family Mission Statement. This was not a boring event- oh, no- we made it FUN!!

Family Mission Statement Magnet Words

My husband and I brainstormed a long list of phrases and words that could work in a DIY family mission statement. Then the fabulous designer Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes jazzed them up to make them so beautiful! She is seriously so talented {have you seen her free frozen party printables?!?} and I love everything she designs!

All you have to do is print out the 2 pages of words onto cardstock paper, cut them out, and then use Magnet Tape on the back of each of them.

Once you have your words cut out and ready, it is time to round up the family! I would HIGHLY recommend involving treats with this event just to increase the excitement. You can’t go wrong with this S’more Fondue {wink!}

Explain to your family that your goal is to create a family mission statement. Put the magnetic words up and invite them to place the words and phrases into the order that they think is the most important. Talk together as a family about what each person thinks is important for YOUR family. This can bring up so many fun discussions about what your own family priorities are. Have your spouse or kids explain WHY they think certain phrases or words should be included.

Set aside any that don’t work with your family, and feel free to add your own ideas on paper to make the list grow.  You could do this all in one evening like we did, or put them up on the fridge and let everyone move them around during the week to narrow down the choices to your top favorites.

Rather than just writing down your family mission statement and filing it away, Erin created these beautiful displays that you can print out and use as your own.

We titled them “Our Family” so that anyone can use them. I love how bright and easy to read they are, not only that they can make a gorgeous display in your home. It will be SO much easier to remember what your family mission statement goals and ideals are when you have it up on display, so make it beautiful! If you want to use one of these, you can find the link to print it for FREE down at the end of this post.

The family mission statement you created together may be different than the one we have here, so you can use these as models to create your own in Word or any other document OR you can use the magnet words and add your own family name as a title for them, like a collage.

Simply changing the size and color of the fonts you use and adding a simple border will make a beautiful display of your family mission statement. Feel free to just add  your own family name to the top of this one. Just print it out as is, then using Word, type your own family name and send the paper through again. Easy!

I love that we have our family mission statement up on display, and I also love that we took the time to create it together as a family. I am looking forward to seeing how my kids will use our family mission statement as a guide for their lives.

    Very cute! Is there a version of this in Word that we can download and add our family name and values?

    • Julie Julie says:

      We don’t have one so you can use the ones provided, or just jump onto Word and use their word art to create your own one-of-a-kind family mission statement:)

  3. Amy says:

    For any of you who try this with the magnet tape linked (thanks for that, btw!), you’ll need to buy two rolls if you want to make all of the ones on the “Family Words” pdf. They’re the perfect height, though!

    • Julie Julie says:

      Thanks so much for that tip! I had an already opened pack that I used up first so I didn’t know you would need 2 packs. Thanks for letting us know:) Hope your family had fun with this!

  4. Love this! Thanks for sharing! Pinned!
