Family Values – Acrostic Style

A few years back, a friend of mine mentioned something about making up an acrostic for the last name of his family – to teach his children values.  I heard that, tucked it away and recently decided to give it a try.  I spent a little time thinking about our last name and the values that we would want to teach our kids, then started teaching it to my young daughter.  This morning, after having had this in place for about a year, I asked her to tell me. 

Without any hesitation, she rattled those words off so fast that I was amazed.  It had stuck.  Here’s the one we use for our family. 

P – Prayerful

R – Respectful / Relational

I – Integrity filled

C – Christ-Centered

E – Excellence

What could yours be?
