This learning activity is to accompany the nine lessons from the Shepherding the Heart section on EEI. Each display card highlights a different moral precept. On the front you will find a character trait and its definition. On the back you will find three “I Can...” statements along with three “Guard and Guide” scriptures for reinforcement. The “I Can...” statements help keep focus on what your child should say when he or she needs encouragement. Display your cards somewhere in your home as you work on each lesson!
