Why Choose Virtues
Let’s be honest, instilling virtues in kids is hard work. But can it be fun too? We think so. In fact, there’s no better way to learn. So We Choose Virtues brings memorable catchphrases, endearing characters, and just plain fun to simply inspire character that lasts. It’s the best choice you can make for the kids in your life.
Proverbs 22:6 says “Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
We Choose Virtues is a great system that you can incorporate into your home bible study and help illustrate and teach your children what virtues are and what character is.
We Choose Virtues was created by Heather McMillan, out of her love for children and her desire to see them reach their personal potential. As a preschool teacher and a children’s pastor, it concerned her how often she came across children whose lack of self control, honesty and perseverance was almost debilitating. How could they succeed in life without the skills that come from good character?
We Choose Virtues offers a great assortment of products and we were lucky enough to get one of their brand new products called Virtue Clue Cards.
Included in a plastic carrying pouch with a velcro button closure, are 13 brightly decorated cards. These cards are the perfect size to fit in a purse and take with you wherever you go. They feature The Virtue Kids, their names, the Virtue catchphrase and antonyms, and on the back a “You can do it” challenge.
The virtues included are: Attentive, Content, Gentle, Obedient, Diligent, Forgiving, Honest, Kind, Helpful, Patient, Perseverant, and Self-Controlled.
We received The Teacher’s Virtue Cards for families and the The Kids Virtue Poster.
The The Teacher’s Virtue Cards for families comes with 12 Faith-based Parenting Character Cards.
The virtues included are: Attentive, Content, Gentle, Obedient, Diligent, Forgiving, Honest, Kind, Helpful, Patient, Perseverant, and Self-Controlled. And the cards say “I am…Attentive” to reinforce the value when the child says it.
There is a brief story about the characters (Kids of Virtueville) like Oboe Joe (OK, whatever you say, I will obey, right away) who plays his oboe under the direction of his conductor. He obediently plays his oboe in the marching band.
- There are “teachable moments” questions to start a discussion in your family about the depth of the virtue and character trait and how it applies to life and situations.
- There is a Memory Scripture Verse and a
- Virtue User Challenge which the family can try to complete tasks related to the virtue.
This is a fantastic tool to use in you family to teach your kids about values, virtues, character traits and about living godly lives.I highly recommend this product! It is perfect for single mothers like me who want to raise their child(ren) in a godly way, with values, virtues and character.
My son and I have so much fun with the activities and he know what the words mean, and we enjoy the silly games and tasks on the back of the card after we have read the story. Get a set of these cards for your family for lots of fun, learning, and laughter! 🙂
And the Poster is a great reference tool to use on the fridge or on your child’s bedroom wall or door to make the lessons even more memorable!

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
