The Character Virtues
About the Book
No matter who you are, you are God’s special child. He has provided you with gifts and virtues to use. If you rely on those virtues to take you to the right road, then you can discover all the wonderful things life has to offer.
The Character Virtues shares poems about twenty-two different traits that will support and direct you through good times and bad. For example, inspiration can help you understand that listening to God and trusting in him will bring you joy. Dedication means you can make and keep commitments every day. Gratitude keeps you focused on the positive things around you. Integrity leads you to do what is right, even when no one else is around. Dignity, strength, patience, faith, and many others all serve as guideposts on your journey.
This collection of poems for children presents verses on twenty-two virtues, designed to teach and guide them away from a life of spiritual poverty and toward the real riches of faith.
