We Choose Virtues

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

Over the last week, my children and I have used the materials from We Choose Virtues and we are all enjoying it! Please note, this post does contain affiliate links.

We Choose Virtues is a simple curriculum that helps children learn biblical virtues and live them out. Children need to learn how God has called us to live our lives and this is a fun and effective way to teach them.

I find that is so important to be intentional about teaching these virtues to our children regularly because it keeps it in the front of their mind.

When we worked through the “I am Kind” parenting card, my kids really grabbed hold of why it’s important to be kind to others—and it begins with each other. Because we spent time talking about the virtue and doing the coloring page, it stayed with them throughout the day and they worked at being kind to one another. {Yes, sometimes it’s work when you fall into bad habits of mean talk or rude behavior}.

God has given us these principles to follow in order to protect us and help us live the best possible life. It’s not about rules and regulations — it’s about knowing how to live a righteous life so we can be used in the best, most effective possible way. It’s about living harmonious and unified lives with each other. It’s about love in action.

  1. Yes, it is a struggle to find the meaningful time to teach and discuss meaningful topics as my children get older and as life get busier! Would love to have this set! :-)

    I think all parents want their kids to be “good”…I want my daughter to be holy and I think teaching her principals from God’s Word is the way to achieve it. I would LOVE this set!

  3. I love the intentional teaching of virtues. I often wonder if I am giving my younger 2 children the same kind of teaching as my oldest received, or is the busyness of life causing gaps in my instruction? These cards look great!

  4. I don’t seem to know what to say. I want to be biblical and consistent.

  5. Thank you for the opportunity! We have a vast age difference in our home, and these cards would be extremely helpful in bridging that gap. Enjoy your day!

  6. These cards sound wonderful. I was not brought up on the bible. We read it for church and we went to church, but we never followed the bible. It was a great story is what I got out of it. I want to teach my children more. This would be a great help.

  7. I try to spend a lot of time on these sorts of things, but sometimes I struggle with how to put it exactly. This would be a great help! :)

  8. This will Benifit my kids to help them understand why we should have good virtues.

  9. I am a grandma to 6 soon to be 8, ages 8 & under. I would love to have these to use at our house to instill what they are being taught at home. I looked up the product and it looks wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity to win the parenting cards.

  10. I have one daughter whose tongue is used for mean words. She has all the qualities of being a “queen bee.” I am always trying to find ways to teach virtues so they will stick. I just keep praying for all five of my children!

  11. Love the product! As a family we could all use such reminders and speaking positive things.

  12. This looks like a great tool our family could use!

  13. I wonder if I’ve missed it completely. My kids are pretty good, but there are some virtues they aren’t so good at displaying. I would love to win and make this important change in our family. Blessings!

    I am a homeschooling mother of three daughters. This tool would help me instill good fruit into my children to take with them planting when they are out in the world doing Girl Scouts, attending Sunday school or playing with family members. I would love to use this set of parenting cards with my family.
    This tool would benefit my family tremendously!

  15. I am a mom of 3 children, and struggle finding the time to do much of anything short of our regular routine. I feel like these parenting cards might be a quick-access tool for us to incorporate each day. Thanks for the opportunity!

  16. I would love to use this tool to expand what we are learning in practical, easy to understand ways. I think my kids would enjoy these too!

  17. I would love to have these!! I’ve thought about them ever since you posted a picture of them. Ive been wanting to do something other than just bible stories with my children and I think these would be great!

  18. We are a homeschool family with three teenagers. We are currently in the process of becoming foster parents. We have been looking for something we could use to help our foster children develop the virtues. These look like exactly what we need.

  19. Jenifer Harrod says:

    I would love to have this for our children to learn virtues. I have been wanting to do this for a long time but have not had the funds to buy any curriculum for this cause. Thanks for the opportunity to teach my children their virtues more thoroughly.

  20. Everytime one of these WCV offers is put out there, I am entering! I really want this set. I do a morning devotional with my boys every morning and I am already trying to teach them all of these values, but I could really use the help/structure of this product. Please consider us!

  21. I would love to win this. I have loved this program since I seen it at a homeschool convention last year unfortunately just have not had the money to purchase it. I think this would be a great way for me to teach all four of my kids (15,12,4,3) how to be better people.

  22. I would love to win this- looks like it would be a great extension resource for homeschooling and for parenting in general! Thanks!

  23. Darla Bunyan says:

    I am always on the lookout for cool ways to teach virtues to my children, thanks so much!

  24. Christina A. says:

    These cards would help keep me on tract and focused. I am limited on my time since I work full time and every chance I get with my kids I would love to help teach them virtues of truth!

  25. I think most parenst struggle with that! We have started to make virtues part of our homeschool lessons, but have nothing to work with. This would be an awesome way to get us moving forward!

  26. My youngest daughter is struggling at school right now with her listening and doing what she knows is the right thing. I’ve been eyeing these cards, thinking what else can I try? Will they work? Something other than everything else we’ve already tried, including having her seat moved. I’d love to win them at a time where our budget is extremely slim. Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. My first grader often has the I am not good or smart enough attitude. My older children sometimes try to see the teachers manuals to copy off of. These could really help. I would love to implement your idea about allowing the older children to teach the younger ones. Teaching has really helped me to learn more and I believe the teacher learns too! All of our 6 children could benefit from these. Thanks for a chance to win!

  28. It’s all too easy to correct a behaviour rather than the attitude behind. These cards sound like they can offer some good biblical guidance for reaching my children’s hearts!

  29. I struggle with it because I don’t ever know what to say. I think these cards would help me know what I’m doing better.

  30. I struggle with it because I don’t know where to start or what to say. I like that these card have everything right there for you!

  31. I have a hard time being consistant with all of the virtues and whichone to best apply to each situation.

  32. Christin, I am always on the lookout for resources to help with character development. These sound so practical and easy to use. Would love to have a set! {I have a stateside address if I win :) }

  33. These virtue cards look amazing! I’m really missing the innocent, mommy pleasing toddlers that I had in my home one year ago. Recently, I find myself struggling with how to address some of the mean spirited remarks that come out of my children’s mouths. I think these cards will offer me the guidance I need to help them choose kind and loving words. They started a new preschool this Fall and I think these virtues are important when friendship building. They will also teach me (I know I’m not perfect) and help me to be a better mom, another benefit for my kids!

  34. This would definitely help with my 5 year old daughter, as I am really struggling to get through to her. She has a bit of a nasty streak and is very jeaous of attention shown to her younger sisters. The structured “lessons” will help her to implement the virtues much easier, as she’s always trying to impress (especially her father) with doing well with her reading, maths etc. Really hope and pray to win. It will relieve some of my stress of continuosly stopping them from squabling.

  35. I struggle with knowing how to teach virtue without making it into a “work” that we do to gain God or parents approval. I’d love some help with self motivation as well. Thanks for the chance to win!

  36. My kiddos are 7 and 3 (4 in about a week). My 7 yr old is becoming increasingly ‘of this world’ and I’d love the help in grounding her back into God’s way.

    We have 3 boys, ages 10, 6, & 3 that I homeschool and recently I have been really struggling to teach them the Godly character we so desire them to learn. These Virtue cards look wonderful, I wish I could have found something like this years ago!!
    Thank you for sharing products like this that you have had success with in your own home, and thank you for the opportunity to win!

  38. With 2 little girls (age 5 and 3) who are in school or daycare all day – I would love to go through this curriculum with them at home, cause if we don’t teach them biblical virtues – who will? It’s up to my husband and I to instill these in our girls and what a wonderful resource this would be. Thanks for the opportunity!

  39. My girls are 11 and 3. I’m a full time working mother and even though they go to a Christian school I’ve been struggling with ways to instill in them the values I desire for them as they grow up in this society. This would be great to use.

  40. We’re not homeschooling, but I often wish we were. Our family needs to work on virtues now and not later.

  41. tiffanyblitz says:

    These look terrific! Even in a christian curriculum, there’s not enough specific attention given to character development…

  42. I feel like when it comes to teaching virtues we are just trying to do our best and “wing it.” – we have 8 children, ages 8 and under and we decided to homeschool partially because we wanted to be able to preserve what virtues our children have learned until they can grow deeply in them. If I had these cards, we’d spend time doing activities to further root virtues into our childrens hearts.

  43. in today’s society we need all the help we can get in teaching virtues!

    This is wonderful! I’ve been looking for something like this! I have a two year old (starting the ‘terrible twos’) and I’d love something to read through with him like this.
