What kind of legacy are you leaving your children?
Change your family legacy between now and Halloween!
Leaving a legacy is a very tall order. A legacy is anything handed down from the past. What gifts are we leaving our children today for tomorrow?
What words would you use to describe your relationship to parenting?
A privilege, a responsibility, hard work, a drag, being crazy in a sea of chaos, overwhelming…
I would like to suggest that you have the privilege of affecting the future of your WHOLE FAMILY TREE by parenting well. You have the opportunity to offer leadership to your household!
Yes, sometimes it is chaotic, overwhelming, sad and frustrating – but then other times, it is rewarding, joyous, funny, and very fulfilling. Parenting is a role which offers so many emotions at one time and many of these emotions are conflicting all at the same time…That is confusing in itself.
What if you set up your role differently so you could endure the hardship to get to the end goals that you are desiring? Let’s just start with what qualities you would like to say your household was full of.
Now make that your goal for the fall of 2019 (12 weeks until Halloween)! Make these twelve weeks count towards the legacy you are leaving in your family life.
Take Action = Weekly Challenge
What characteristic(s) do I want my children to remember about their home when they go to start their own home?

You can begin to build your family legacy today!
