“For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience.

Our leaders are but trusted servants; they

do not govern.”


We treat each other with genuine affection in this home.  We express our love through words and actions that expression of love is never less than sincere.  We honor each other by watching what we say and how we say it.  We openly express what we're feeling, but we don't yell at each other.  We don't throw fits or pout or use bad language in this home.  That's just not honorable.
We fill our lives and our home with the truly "good things of life" and stay away from the things that lead us away.  We laugh a lot.  We tease a lot.  We play a lot.  We are good friends.  And since we are deeply imperfect people, we are always patient with each other,  the way God is patient with us.  We pray together and for each other consistently.
