A Family Mission Statement
- Oct 23, 2014 - 9:49:12 PM
Some time ago I attended a
Family Enrichment Seminar in Nassau during the summer. The question was asked
to write a mission statement for your life. I thought to myself that the
presenter was just being hilarious. However, he was serious about his
statement. He said it yet again; write for me a mission statement for your
life. I then begin to ask myself the question what is my mission statement for
my life? As I begin to answer this question, it was effortless for me to be
myself, and understand that every life has a mission. Fulfilling our mission is
the most essential in life.

Teaching your children delayed gratification

eldest brother Elvis taught me a valuable lesson as a teen about delaying
gratification. I didn’t understand what he was teaching at that
moment in time, but I trusted him; and knew that he wanted the best for his
little brother. I was in the process of receiving a basketball scholarship to
attend college in Texas. My brother simple words were, “The girls will always be
there. When you leave and come back home they will still be around; they are not
five years later, I met a student who was frustrated and disappointed about his
life. I asked him the simple question, why? Then he began to express himself
about what he wanted to achieve in his life. I was very impressed with his
Fatherlessness, the Social Ills of Society

shouts so loudly about society’s success as do the lives of our
children, and the lives of our children are reflections of adult values

A crisis usually
involves a temporary loss of coping abilities, and the assumption is
that the emotional dysfunction is reversible. If a person effectively
copes with the threat of a crisis, he or she then returns to prior

Children are resilient at heart; however they often struggle with rejection and neglect from their parents.
Chinese character for “crisis” is made up of two symbols, one for
despair and the other for opportunity. When doctors talk about a crisis,
they are talking about the moment in the course of a disease when a
change for the worse or better occurs. As a counselor when I talk about
marital crisis, I’m talking about turning points when the marriage can
go in either direction...
A Championship Ring

I was blessed by the
Lord to be given a talent to play basketball during secondary school,
high school and also to play at a collegiate level. For me, every time I
would step out on the basketball court it was to compete at my highest
level. To play basketball was one thing, but to win a championship was
another thing. I had both experiences. However, it’s so much better to
be on the winning side.
article was birth out of a conversation with a colleague. He made a
statement that said “I chose my family over my career.” He then later
expounded on his statement, “I was given the opportunity to make more
money and to have a position on my job but I realized that the hours of
work would interfere with spending quality time with my family...”
