Family anthem

 Several months ago I was doing the dishes, and attempting to multi-task. I had my laptop on the counter and was listening to a session of last years women's conference. I honestly don't remember what the talk was about. I only remember that it was taught by a husband and wife team. The wife had this little cheer that she did every morning as her children walked out the door. It was cute and she was so enthusiastic when she did it for the group. It had several attributes that she hoped her children would display in their day. 

It got me thinking of what kind of cheer I would do for my kids as I helped them to put on their daily armor of God. 

A couple of months ago I was trying to find a good old primary song to teach my children during school. When I was flipping through the Children's Songbook, and came to Dare To Do Right, I knew that was the song for the week!

As we started learning it, I realized that it had EXACTLY what I wanted for my children to remember each day. 

I want them to KNOW that they have a work that "no other can do." I think it is one of Satan's best tools to make people think that they don't matter. If they believe that they don't matter, then they won't fulfill their life mission, and a big score for the bad guy. 

I want them to know that they need to be brave, courageous, and true to God's plan. 

I also want them to know that "other men's failures can never save you." Just because everyone else is doing it, it won't save you! Do what is right no matter what. 

Since then, I have adopted this as our family anthem. Do you have a family anthem? What is it? Or what would it be if you were to adopt one? Or do you have a family saying that your family repeats each day? I would love to hear about it!!
