My Mission Statement
"I place G-d before me always." If we would live with the reality that G-d is watching, our lives would be much better. First of all, we would do a lot less things wrong, and secondly, we would always feel loved and protected.I also think a big goal of every Jewish person should be to serve G-d with happiness (Simcha) and to bring happiness to others. Thanks for the great idea, Lori!! :)

As usual Lori knocks it out of the park with her 'Lori Almost Live' suggestions.Lori,if I may comment, when you suggested to your family your mission statement for them 'We are here to make you happy' actually is your personal mission statement.In Judaism we have have hundreds of mission statements to chose from.Two of my favourites are from Hallel and Pirkei Avot:'This is the day that the L-rd has made,we will be glad and rejoice in it' and 'He used to say,If I am not for myself,who will be for me?And being for my own self,what am I?And if not now,when?'

Wow Lori, Great idea.
I don't have a mission statement. Can't even think of one right now but can't wait to hear what others are thinking. I ask G-d daily. "What would you have me do today?" Sometimes I kinda' find out and sometimes it's not so easy to know. At the end of day I say "I hope what I did today was the thing we both had in mind". :) (is that like a daily mission statement) Thank you for the video.
