Paperback
Practical, biblical guidance to help parents and children grow together in eight crucial elements of character, including compassion, joy, and integrity.

- Publisher Strong, firm character does not develop automatically. This book helps families set and achieve the goals necessary for developing eight essential character traits: integrity, faith, a teachable spirit, a servant??'s heart, self-discipline, joy, compassion, and courage. The Yateses use stories and practical examples from their lives and the lives of their five children to show how character can be purposefully cultivated through the normal, daily events in life. With refreshing honesty, they share how parents and children can grow together in these qualities. Character Matters includes focus questions and three appendices, including a leader??'s guide for group study.

- Publisher How can you equip your children to live a life of integrity before God and in service to others? Developing a character that stands firm is not something that happens automatically. As a parent, you need goals for character development and practical ways of achieving those goals. Character Matters! is the essential resource to guide you in this ongoing process. John and Susan Yates describe how both parents and children can intentionally grow in character through the normal, daily events in life. They highlight eight essential character traits-integrity, faith, a teachable spirit, a servant's heart, self-discipline, joy, compassion, and courage-and give insight into God's perspective on each. Through stories and practical examples, the Yateses share how they seek to develop these traits in their own lives and in the lives of their five children. By seeing how to use everyday circumstances as opportunities for character development, you'll discover that often the big lessons in life are best learned in the little, everyday issues. "Here's a biblical plan for raising secure, loving children-a book you need to read!"Gary Smalley and John Trent, Ph.D. "John and Susan give solid, practical instruction and inspiration for turning houses into homes." Bill and Lynne Hybels
