We Choose Virtues Review

A few weeks ago I was chosen to review "We Choose Virtues". Maybe you've came across them online. We choose virtues is a set of tools to help aid in developing good character traits  in young children ages 3-11. It's designed to be used for a brief amount of time everyday. This can be done at home by a parent or in school by a teacher. It can even be used as a conversation starter at dinner time. The idea is to imprint these characters in the child over several teachable moments found in your everyday life experiences.

There are 12 characters that are covered:

1. Attentive
2. Content
3. Gentle
4. Kind
5. Diligent
6. Forgiving
7. Obedient
8. Patient
9. Perseverant
10. Helpful
11 .Self-Controlled
12. Honest

I really loved how each character began with "I am". For example: "I am" Kind.

 The characters are adorable and the cards are vibrant in color and made of quality material. There are several products offered that range from posters and flashcards to entire teachers kits.You can check out all the different products here  There are also some freebies offered on there site to go along with materials. There is a  Family-character-assessment. and a Kids-memory-verses-bible-hero es-and-truths list.

You can find there current promo codes here

I made the cards into part of our morning board routine. The kids were very excited about adding something new. In addition to the cards I added a Bible hero or Truth and a memory verse that went along with the character of the week.

I also have the opportunity to share some of these awesome materials with one of you. I'm giving away a set of "We Choose Virtues" Flashcards

To enter to win, please leave me a comment stating which virtues that you think are most important for a child to learn and an email address for me to contact you if your chosen. I'll post the winner on November 5th.


  1. Honesty and kindness. These are great tools to get conversations going and to aid in other teachings of these values. I love the color and characters that kids can relate to. Thanks for this give away...good luck to all.

  2. I think they are all important for even me to keep working on. But for my boys right now self contol and forgivness is something we need to work on :)

  3. I would say self control. I think that if you can get a grasp on self control then the other virtues will come easier to learn and to apply the other virtues in your life. :)

  4. They are all so very important to little hearts, but Contentment, Kindness, Patience, Forgivness and Self-Control are probably the hardest and most important for younger children to learn. Most adults, myself included, struggle in these areas more than we should. If they learn how to truly grasp these it will benefit them so much as they grow.

  5. Being honest, kind and forgiving. I am pregnant with my first child and I really want to focus on virtues and character qualities with my child/ren! Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. All of these virtues are so important not only for our children but for my husband and me as well! These cards are wonderful, and they would be a great addition to our daily routine. Thank you for hosting this give away!
