We Choose Virtues Review

We Choose Virtues has been a great addition to our homeschool and home in general. It's a program that helps to instill virtues in children in a fun and encouraging way. I recieved a set of Virtue flashcards (mine are the NIV version, but they also come in KJV and Secular), a sample of the parenting cards, a download of the family character assessment, teacher handbook, coloring pages, and a butterfly award for when all the virtues are completed. There are many other products on the website that can be used at home, in a homeschool, or in a church setting.

I did the family character assessment and chose the virtues we were going to do and in what order. Every Monday I introduced the virtue, character, Bible verse, story behind the character, the message, and the antonyms. We reviewed all these things throughout the week and talked about how we can embody this virtue. My daughter also colored the color page for the virtue during the week as a reminder. All the virtue cards that we have done as well as the finished coloring pages are on the walls in the school room. We review them from time to time.

This program has helped my daughter to remember what each virtue means and has given her solid examples of how she can live out each one. I love when she brings up one of the characters when she is talking about what she should and shouldn't do. It shows me that it is sinking in. I would recommend this program to families, homeschoolers, and churches.

Along with this review I am able to offer a coupon to all of you. Just use the code VIRTUE 15 for 15% off your order. The best thing is there is no expiration date! I have another code too HOME20 which is good for 20% off the Homeschool kit and is only good until the end of April.
