character training in children

When my kids were little, I didn’t do anything intentional for developing character in children.  It just kind of happened along the way. As they grew older, I relied on the influence of church and Christian schooling to help mold their characters.

I felt a huge burden to be intentional in developing good character traits and habits in my sons. I did a ton of reading and researching and praying on the subject.

We had a blast on our month long road trip. I could (and should) share some amazing photos and stories and thoughts.  Give me time, I’ll get there. But first, I want to catch you up on the funny parts.
