TOS Review ~ We Choose Virtues

Like the majority of parents I know, the Lt. and I want our girls to become young women of cache_220_220_HandyVirtueCardscharacter. To help us in the lifelong teaching process we were blessed with a review from We Choose Virtues, which was  created by mom and teacher Heather McMillan.  We Choose Virtues is a curriculum that inspires character in kids. 

Our family was given the new Virtue Clues cards, the teacher handbook, and  coloring book, along with  free downloads from their website: Family Character Assessment, and Kids Memory Verses, Bible Heroes & Truths.

We Choose Virtues focuses on the twelve main character traits with catchy names for the characters like Stop Sign Madeline (I am Self-Controlled):

We wholeheartedly  give We Choose Virtues two thumbs up.  I love everything about the program and what it does to help me teach character to my daughters young women. I especially love that The Virtue Clues cards are compact and cute. They are the perfect size to slip into your pocket or bag when you are out and about.  If you are searching for a character building program give We Choose Virtues a try, I think…I know you will be extremely happy with the choice.
