It was in a book from the early 1900s which I had as a child and used with my children, too. :-)

Raising Our Children to Be Leaders (Part 2) #homeschooling "Christianparenting

I have always loved Dr. Seuss’s story, Yertle the Turtle. In it, he tells of an arrogant turtle-king who aspires to be above everyone and everything else. He oppresses all the other turtles, thinking they exist only to exalt him to an ever-higher…

Last time, I said that the homeschool environment is an ideal place to incubate world-impacting leaders. I gave several reasons why this is so. But you may be thinking, “Not everyone can be a leader. Some have to be followers. Besides, I don’t think some…

Character building resources for Christian homeschool families
Introduction
Character Building for Families is designed for Christian, homeschool families.

We originally wrote these books for our own homeschool family, because we weren't sure the hit-and-miss character training we had been doing was enough. We sought God's guidance for each lesson, and He always blessed us by bringing topics, Bible passages, and insights to mind.

Character Building for Families is suitable for family devotions, Bible curriculum, or a separate character "class." Lessons include reading Bible passages together, thought-provoking discussion, Bible memorization, application to our personal lives, and prayer. Each lesson takes about 20 minutes to complete. The studies are designed to be used by the entire family together, and can be used again and again. A unique feature of our character education materials is that parents will be learning right along with their children.

Just about any family will find Character Building for Families a valuable tool for Christian growth, whether they have been homeschooling for many years, are just beginning, or even if they are not homeschooling at all. We especially encourage families that are struggling with discipline, or are not yet as well-grounded in Bible truths as they would like to be, to use these manuals.

Character Building for Families, Volume 1 covers twelve topics--Obedience, Orderliness, Diligence, Loyalty, Deference, Cheerfulness, Gentleness (Kindness), Contentment, Gratitude, Truthfulness, Servanthood, and Hospitality. There are 97 pages with 165 lessons.

Character Building for Families, Volume 2 covers 5 topics--Stewardship (of money, time, speech, bodies, friends, and the gospel), Teachableness, Mercy, Patience, and Desire for Jesus. It has 105 pages, with 135 lessons.

Features which parents tell us they particularly like about Character Building for Families:

  • No lesson preparation for parents
  • No written work for children
  • Sound Bible content
  • Easy-to-follow, to-the-point layout
  • Low cost
  • The positive changes they are seeing in their families
