Rules For Our Home

Have you ever heard of the Duggar family? What a family! They seem to be wonderfully sweet people. Below are rules their family goes by, and I'm thinking they're worthy of incorporating into our own home!


Always use soft words, even when you don't feel well.

Always display kind actions, even if you have been mistreated.

Show joyful attitudes, even when no one else is looking.

Have sincere motives with no thought of self-gain.

Always give a good report of others.

Never talebear unless physical harm will come to someone. (Use Matthew 18)

Never raise a hand to hit.

Never raise a foot to kick.

Never raise an object to throw.

Never raise a voice to yell.

Never raise an eye to scowl.

Use one toy/activity at a time.

Never let the sun go down on your wrath. (Don't go to bed angry or guilty)

J. O. Y. -- Make serving your family a priority -- put Jesus first, others second, yourself last.

Thanks for posting this!

I've heard of the Duggars and have read these rules somewhere before, but had forgotten them.

I think this will be great to reprint and post on the wall!

Have a great Sunday, Christy!
