You might remember a while ago I reviewed a little book called Honor Your Father and Mother (linked to review). It is a collection of questions regarding behavior and appropriate verses that correspond to help children know what the Bible says about their behavior. Of course, it's an excellent tool for parents, too. In our family we tend to focus on one Bible verse at a time, but it won't be long before we look at multiple verses at one time to help get the bigger picture of God's desire for us.
Since then, I have had the chance to do another review for Doorposts! AND they are offering a GIVEAWAY for you, too!
Doorposts sent me another tool for biblical character training. It's the Put On Chart.
The Put On Chart and companion study book help remind everyone the character qualities God desires us to "put on" based on Colossians 3:12-14 (compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, forebearance, forgiveness, and love).
Not only do you you get a chart (color or black and white), the study booklet, but there are also paper dolls (boy and girl) to help your child really act it out!
The references are from the NKJV of the Bible. I really like how Doorposts, and author Pam Forster put this together. It is appropriate for a wide range of ages I will say that I didn't just open it up and start using it immediately. I wanted to take the time to read through the book and consider how I would use it. Don't let that deter you though, this is a fabulous way to encourage these positive character traits we desire to see in our children! Of course, as we encourage our children, we're likely to see our own need to for these exact traits. I was really impressed with the book that came with the chart. It's full of ways to help parents utilize the chart and the Bible. Though I knew it was part of the package, it was more than I expected.
One great thing about Doorposts is that they allow you to see a sample of each product! Click to see the Put On Chart sample pages.
I really like Doorposts, so I have purchased the book For Instruction in Righteousness. WOW! Doorposts compiled this great resource to help parents discipline their children. Not only does it act as a topical Bible and includes full verses, not just the references, but it also gives suggestions for discipline that parallel the biblical consequence and object lessons and parallel ideas for rewards and encouragement.

November 2014 Reading - Some months are better than others. It's just the way it goes. I anticipated reading lots and relaxing this month with lots of books, but it didn't happen....
