The Pledge
We believe that the family is the basic unit of society, and where we experience our greatest challenges and also our greatest joys.

”We pledge to strengthen our bonds of love, devotion, and combined talents through regular healthy behaviors and courtesies in our home. These family practices include having fun together, showing affection, sharing meals together, growing together in intelligence and income, really listening to each other, and yearning to improve.”

Fun: We did something fun together and laughed together.
Affection: We showed affection to each other by words or actions.
Meals together: We shared meals together and had conversations during the meals.
Intelligence and income: At least one time this week we shared with each other ideas and plans about growing our family economy, by discussing topics such as improving education, employment, earning power, budgeting, saving, and giving.
Listening: We made time to listen to each other to try to really understand each other.
Yearning: We made plans for the coming week to improve in at least one of the above categories.

To take the assessment on-line, please go to the Everyday Hero Family Assessment. Consider writing down your score and take the assessment again in the near future to measure your progress.
