Family Values

Lightglider Parents,

We hear a lot in our culture today about the importance of living with values. Yet, so few of us know what our values are or how they affect our lives.

A value is a principle upon which we build our lives. It helps guide our decisions and behaviors.

What are your family's values? Have you as a family identified and discussed them? This would be a wonderful exercise to do with your family. Our values consciously or unconsciously affect the very life that we live.

A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit...Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions. 
~Matthew 7-17-20 (NLT)

Just like a good seed produces a beautiful tree, a positive value helps to produce a beautiful life.

Take time to identify your family's values and to even role play situations whereby the values you identify would affect your potential behaviors. Let this subject drive some meaningful conversations in your home.

And, in case you want to borrow from Lightgliders, the five Lightglider values are purpose, humility, confidence, hope, and love.
