The True Friend - Teaching the Seven Virtues of Manhood

The True Friend - Teaching the Seven Virtues of Manhood
image

For September, our virtue is True Friend. We will spend chapels, class meetings, homeroom time, and teachable moments that occur daily to help the boys answer the essential question of what does it mean to be a true friend?

The boys of PDS are developing life-long friendships in front of our eyes. Some of these relationships could last a lifetime. In light of these realities, we aim to teach the boys the Biblical basis of why God created friendships and how this gift of true friendship helps us to glorify Him throughout our lives. By using Biblical examples in the Old and New Testaments, we hope to build the boys into True Friends.

Below is a resource we give our teachers as we kick off True Friend. I hope you find it useful.

As we spend this month being intentional about true friendship, we pray that each boy continues to "grow in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.

Thank you for allowing us to partner with you as we teach the boys this essential virtue.

Our Virtue breakfasts help boys learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of a group registration by adding additional registrations to the cart, even if that person has already registered with another boy.
