9.  Prioritize Character.

What-We-Believe-Series
We tried various materials but settled joyfully with this series from Apologia. We are now on our 3rd book, focusing on loving your neighbor.

10.  Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Through the Bible and Bible-base material, teach the kids the value of prayer and reading of His word on a daily basis.  As Christians,  we all need  to know God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit so we may live the fruitful lives we were called to have to reflect our Maker.
