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.
