Overview

Are you preparing your children to stand up to the world around them?

Of all the values and skills we need to build into our children's hearts, courage is the most important one. It tops faith, integrity, endurance, and self-discipline.
The reason it stands above all of these other wonderful qualities is because they are each dependent upon courage in order to thrive.

Faith is fine when everything's going right. But what happens when it comes with a huge personal price tag attached? It's only courageous faith that stands in the end. The same goes for integrity. It's courageous integrity that empowers a person to do the right thing when everything around him tells him to take the easy way out. It's courageous endurance and courageous self-discipline that gives our children their best shot at a great and meaningful future.

And it's your commitment to making courage an anchor tenant in your child's character that will put you in a league of your own. Home Grown Heroes can help turn you from a Mom or Dad with good intentions to a parent that wants to give your kids the most important tool they need in order to truly succeed.

Through inspiring stories, practical teaching, and hefty doses of common sense, veteran family advocate Tim Kimmel charts a course your family can follow. No, it won't happen the same way in every home. But your investment in preparation will pay off when the heat's on. It's the most strategic investment you may ever make.

In brief, engaging chapters Dr. Kimmel covers these topics and more:

Courage to resist compromise
Courage to carry on in hardship
Courage to live within your means
Courage to keep promises
Courage to resist mediocrity
Courage to sacrifice short-term satisfaction for long-term goals
Includes discussion questions for individual and group study

That kind of courage doesn't happen by default ... Its courage by design.
