Has anyone used or heard of Keepers of the Faith clubs, Keepers at Home and Contenders of the Faith? http://www.keepersofthefaith.com
I am excited to be going through Little Keepers of the Faith with 2 of my girls age 4 and 6 yrs beginning this summer as a way to give us some focus while on our school break. I plan to continue throughout the school year also. The book includes “sections on Godly Girlhood, Basic Skills, Homemaking, and Nature. Girls will learn to begin, work on, and finish projects.” For instance we are memorizing the 10 commandments now, memorizing 1 commandment per week. Also we are reading the book of Jonah one chapter per week. I have the girls pray each day for each family member (for one month) and we’ll also begin a handicraft and homemaking/life skill, diff one to do each week. We open our club meeting by reciting the purpose (to follow Jesus in everything we do) and our club bible verse and hymn (we added the hymn in on our own “Footprints of Jesus”). Next summer we’ll have a ceremony with grandparents and hand out the girls pins/awards they’ll earn for completing each section this year.
Thought I’d share if anyone wanted to look into it!
I just came across this a couple of weeks ago! Hopefully, I’ll be able to get the books soon. 😀
Their guidlines for choosing books is a little more strict than mine, but they are a nice resource for wholesome books. I like the idea of this club to have with my girls as opposed to sending them to brownies/girl scouts.
Tara – how did you like using the club books for your girls? I’m thinking about getting it for mine – 4 and 6! 😉
My girls look forward to it every Tues night! It keeps me focused one what I should be teaching the girls about homemaking skills! I also add things that aren’t in the book like a chore flower pot, Lesson One: The ABCs of Life book to do a lesson each week, and we do our character training during this time each week. I plan to order pins for the girls soon and have a ceremony with grandparents to recite our verses and to show what we’ve accomplished during the school year.
OK – have you seen the homemaker books from Pearables? How would you compare the two? I’m thinking about using polished cornerstones for Character and the First homemaker book from Pearables and skipping the Little Keepers handbook just because I think it might be redundant. Opinion???
Yes, I looked through their character list and they didn’t have truthfulness and patience, I don’t think, so I’m going with Keeper’s. I agree it would be redundant.
