The meaning of virtue seems to be lost in our modern culture. We tend to associate virtue with being “good.” But what does that mean?
I’ll admit it! I am perpetually late to lots of things! Dropping the kids to school on time proves to be my family's biggest challenge!
Here are a few natural remedies that have helped my family and friends to refresh their living area.
When our lives are well ordered, we create a beautiful melody.
The secret in raising truly successful children (and being successful ourselves) lies not in the activities or careers we choose, but in the ways we choose to accomplish them.
As individuals, when we are lacking order, we strive for it. Many times we put pressure on ourselves to get our lives "in order,” or to attain more order than the people around us.
As a parent, I think we all want to, ultimately, do our best by our children. We want to do them justice by being the parents we’ve always believed we could be.It’s a noble ideal, and one that is much more difficult to achieve than we thought before actually becoming parents.
When the word justice is thrown around in TV shows, Facebook posts, and on protesters’ signs, it’s quite difficult to comprehend what it actually represents.
I grew up in a German household where working hard without complaining was a huge value we learned. When I complained about having to do a task, my mom used to say to me, “Kopf Hoch,” which is basically German for “Keep your head up.”
Everyone has heard of virtues and most of us have some understanding of what virtues are. It’s easy to see the value in improving how we live in virtue, the problem is it can be hard to know where to start.
HERE IS WHAT OUR PARENTS HAVE TO SAY...
"It’s actually been really fun applying the principles in the development of our children’s character, and it’s rewarding to see our kid’s behavior reflect the effort that we have put forth. It sounds so simple, but virtue is simply about doing for someone else; it’s about the other.”
Lexie & Andrew Cole
"Prior to starting the program, we desired to have a virtuous family—who doesn’t? But, we lacked a strategy on how to actually teach 'character.' We have been so impressed by the program’s ability to walk families through the virtues. This program helps the family realize that none of us are perfect. Our goal is not to become perfect, we’re to become the best version of ourselves."
Mercy & Sergio Gutierrez
“As parents, we would do anything for our kids, but when it comes down to it, we are not really being intentional at all. Families of Character changed that for our family.”
