The idea of marriage is beautiful. It’s romantic, and sweet, and loving, and so appealing that most of us eventually find ourselves in it. And then reality hits, and we discover that marriage is actually a lot of hard work...
I was expected to lead—to show composure in the face of danger and stress as well as have all the answers for those looking to me for guidance. Little did I know how well being a Surface Warfare Officer would prepare me for parenting...
The unspoken challenge is learning to identify the small daily opportunities to express and receive the same purposeful love experienced on that first day.
For most of the population, running a marathon seems daunting. For me it was only a “fool’s hope,” but my marathon training taught me lessons far greater than how to run.
I think often about parenting with purpose... But I often forget the most important aspect of this: being purposeful in the way I respond to my children.
The meaning of purposefulness has gotten lost in our culture. It’s either been reduced to vague concepts or feel-good hoopla. Can you blame us?
Most parents share a common denominator – you want your kids to be happy, healthy and successful. Who wouldn’t want that for their kids? The question really becomes, how do you get there?

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.”
