  • Open doors for people, picking up and generally helping others when they can. Attending church and reading from the Bible.
    We live in a smaller community with a lot of older retired people. So opening a door at a restraint or store. Helping them reach something on a shelf, ect.
    Care and compassion for others.

  • Morals and values are two different things. I value respect, honesty, loyalty. However, morally, I want my son to do what is right for himself, do onto others as he would want on himself, make ethical decisions, be a proactive decision maker.

  • To be frugal and ambitious...those are 2 of the bigger values I want them to grow up with. Be polite and tolerant, but not a "push over". To be informed and confident enough to uphold their beliefs to scrutiny.

  • Truthfulness my oldest struggles with this, self reliance, to give as you can, forgiveness but not forgetfulness, to treat people how you want to be treated, discipline, and to be true to yourself.
