Spiritual Formation Memoirs: Conclusion

Conclusion:  “What the Heck am I Doing Here, Anyway? A young girl’s journey down His road of Life complete with numerous missed stops signs, speed bumps, car crashes and airbags deployments.” 

My calling and role in life has been one of little direction. Not that I haven’t been shown things by the Lord, but rather, I haven’t, as the colloquialism states, “kept my eye on the prize.” Unit 13’s directive to develop a mission statement and core values for my life was challenging. My husband and I are planning to develop something for ourselves. This directive will help move us forward in our lives and help us to not stay in complacent, easy places. Rather, it is my prayer that it will push us. Personally, I see that it will help me in my everyday life make decisions as I reflect upon the person Christ has made me to be.

In light of what I have learned in this course, I have concluded that I need to…write a mission statement for myself and my family as well as identify the core values that God has given me. 


  1. love this and relate on nearly every level. matt and I did a family purpose statement this time last year and at least once a week we're brought back to it as it re-calibrates where we're going, why, and how.

  2. Thanks for reading! I have noticed your statement posted during our visits to see you all. Now Ben and I just need to sit down and actually write one!

    By the way I am terribly embarrassed as these were not proofed well at ALL! EEK! :(
