Declare Your Values: How to Create an Intentional Family Culture

Declare your values — it’s an important step in creating an intentional family culture.

The process of establishing and declaring your family values will align you and your spouse with purpose. Ultimately, your family values will become the common language in your home and the foundation for your culture of communication.

Define who you are and what you believe in as a family to help create unity.

Declare Your Values

Declaring your family’s values is an important step in creating an intentional family culture. When you and your partner share the same values and speak with one voice, it is far more likely that your children will accept your values as their own. The lessons you teach need to be consistent, continuous and in a common language that your children will understand.

Start by defining what you believe in and what you want your children to believe in. Create a list of values that resonates with you. Don’t hold back. Be clear about what you want to teach your children and what kind of people you want your children to be — now and when they’re adults.

Group the values into common themes and meanings, and discuss them. Pick the best ones that define what is truly important to your family. Define and create simple, age appropriate definitions for each value, and then declare your values when your family gathers together.

Remember to take your time — this is about purpose not perfection.
