My Mission Statement

I've been thinking and praying about writing a personal mission statement, not only for my life, but also as a blogger. As I surfed over the internet on writing a personal mission statement, I came across many rules and suggestions for writing one. My favorite site was over at Inspired to Action: Purposeful Motherhood. In fact, I loved what author, Kat, wrote as her own mission statement and am taking the easy route and copying it down here, with a few changes to personalize it to me! Not because I didn't want to try and come up with my own,  but it really does fit my heart's desires and life's goals. Since our lives change all the time, I may decide to change this mission statement at a later date. I would like to thank Kat for the amazing thoughts and inspirations she shares. So here is my personal mission statement:
To pursue Jesus with my whole heart and surrender all that I am and all that I have so that I can be fully used by Him.
To make my hubby feel loved, cared for and admired.
To have an open, honest, and caring relationship with my son and help him to be a young man who knows, deeply loves and wholeheartedly serves God.
To live my life in such a way that others are inspired to fully pursue Jesus and desire constant growth in their personal lives.

I also would like to add a few Bible verses that have special meaning, as I seek to fulfill the mission God has given me as daughter of God, blogger, and encourager to other Christ followers! 
Colossians 2:2-6
     2 My goal is that they(we) may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they(we) may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they(we) may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. 5 For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
     6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
