PRIMARY GRADES: “Holiness & Virtue : Read it! Write it! Live it!” Cathy helps children discover that virtue grows from the “inside out”. Virtue needs to grow in our beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and decisions before it flows genuinely into our actions.
Part One “Read it!”: Cathy invites students to choose virtuous reading to be holy and strong on the inside.
Part Two “Write it!”: Cathy instructs students in creating virtuous stories of their own to inspire others on the inside.
Part Three “Live It!”: She then connects the dots showing that what is inside enables us to live with holiness and virtue (aka: as saints) on the outside! (3rd – 8th)
