I don’t write on behalf of Character First –I am simply a mum who loves what their resources has done in our family.

Last week I wrote how we use Character First in our family – but it raised a few questions about different Character First products.  So I’ve written a collection of posts outlining content and use of the different resources.  If I’ve missed any please let me know and I’ll add to it.

 

Business Bulletin

I have mentioned the Business Bulletin a few times, might be good for me to expand on it as well.  Once again it is a small booklet (8 pages) that you receive via subscription.  The audience is adults in the workforce, though my older teens are able to connect that with their life, even though they aren’t in full time employment.  The principles are the same whether you are at home, work or play.

The booklet is written very much like a magazine with short 1 page articles with a few little snippets on the side.  The Diligence booklet covers the following:

  • Diligence vs Slothfulness and Balancing Diligence ( I like this column as it encourages us to keep all character responses in mind – we cannot be intolerant or unavailable just because we are being diligent!)
  • 5 Keys to building diligence – this ends with some application discussion questions.  I point my older teens/young adults to think about these questions and to notebook/blog their responses.
  • Diligence on the Job  and Why is Diligence Important
  • Diligence in History – once again looking at Edison and how he lived diligence
  • Diligence at Home, Encouragement to find a project so you can practice diligence
  • Diligence in Nature – by looking at the Beaver we understand diligence some more
  • Final encouragements to apply Diligence

Peter and I both enjoy the Business Bulletin – it is a part of my personal study.  I also give this to Joshua (and have done so for the last few years 17-19yo)

Though Peter is often not around for our character lessons/discussions I often give him the Bulletin so he can read and know what we are talking about and work on it in his life too.   Another thing I do (and need to do more often as it works well) is to bring the new trait to the breakfast table Sunday morning so Peter can have input into our initial introduction and discussion.

The study of character, is not something just for kids.  We need to be working on our own character – our own responses to people and circumstances – so that we as a family can step out and reflect Jesus in our community.
