Most homeschool moms will tell you academics are not the most important part of home education.
Character development is significantly more important than academics.
I would dare say this is where public schools are seriously lacking in today’s society.
Virtues aren’t something that can be taught from a book. Virtues must be instilled in children by loving parents who consistently strive to model good character themselves.
Finding a daily devotional for children that focuses on character development was a major part of our curriculum search. We wanted our children to learn what the Bible has to say about virtues and to use Biblical figures as role models.
We were incredibly picky and it was not an easy search. Finally, we decided on Day By Day Devotions: A year of character building devotions for kids by Karyn Henley.
We’ve used and loved this devotional for the past year.
Character development is crucial but not always the easiest subject to teach.The lessons in this book are short, but fun. My children learned so much during this study and I want to share it with you guys.
Each of you have been such a blessing to me since I began the Upside Down Homeschooling blog three and a half weeks ago. I want to say thank you for reading, commenting and sharing the blog with your friends.
I want to give one lucky winner a copy of Day by Day Devotions to use with your children. My prayer is that God will use this devotion to bless your family the way He used it to bless ours.
The giveaway will be open from today, Friday, July 6th- Monday July 8th @ 12:01 am. You may enter as many times as you would like. The winner will be announced by noon on Monday. Good luck!
