I guess I've never really thought about it in those terms, but I guess I do have a mission of sorts when it comes to blogging.
This week, Becoming Me is hosting a Blog Mission Tour. She writes:
Whether that mission is to share your passion for cooking, minister to the hearts of others, promote an organic lifestyle, keep record of your life, or anything in between, we want to learn about it and you.
My personal mission statement--the one I've adopted as my own--is actually a quote attributed to Mother Teresa: "O Lord, let your light shine on others through me."
So what is the mission statement of "Notes in the Key of Life"?
Well, if there's anything I've learned in working for a company for lo, these many years, it's that the briefer and more succinct your mission statement, the better. So I'll try to condense it down to this:
To inform, entertain and uplift my readers while letting the light of God's love shine through me.
To expand on that a little: My blog emphasizes current events, good books, clean entertainment, spiritual encouragement, women's issues, health and fitness, and family matters (including stuff related to my own family). In all I post, I hope I'm informing, entertaining and/or uplifting my readers while hopefully being the "salt and light" the Bible calls Christians to be.
I know that not all my readers are Christians, so my hope is that in my postings and interaction with my readers, I am the kind of representative of Christ and agent of His love that would draw people to Him.
Not saying that that will always be the case, unfortunately...but that's my goal.
