Today's habit is: PRIORITIZE!
This may seem like an odd habit to develop, but making a priority list of the specific spiritual things or areas you want to nurture and develop in your children is vital. As the saying goes, “if we fail to plan, we plan to fail”. In other words, you have to know your desired destination before you can map out the way to get there. As homeschoolers I am sure you are familiar with this!
This priority list can include things like values, beliefs, character traits, Biblical principals, ethics, etc. Be as specific as possible!
Even if you are not much of a planner, this priority list will help you focus in on those things that you most want to develop in your children. You can then pick one or two at a time and plan some specific ways to interact with your children on that topic or area. You can find more ideas for activities and focused interaction through our Mommy Mission Membership!
Next, make sure that you keep copies of your priority list in highly visible areas such as your bedside table, the refrigerator door or even the bathroom mirror. A visual reminder of your goals and desired outcomes will help you stay focused when life gets crazy and chaotic!
come back tomorrow as we talk about another VITAL area of assessment!
