Book Description

One of the most powerful ways to inspire young people to greatness is through the stories of great people from the past. In Portraits of Integrity you and your children will be challenged to strive for excellence through the examples of 45 people in all three volumes who did just that. In Volume 1, they will meet:

--Jake DeShazer who was a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II. He was tortured and kept in solitary confinement for many months, but when a Bible came into his hands he became a Christian and later went to Japan to share the gospel with his former enemies.

--Lieutenant Adrian Marks, the brave young Navy pilot who set his seaplane down on a heaving, shark-infested ocean to pick up survivors of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis at the risk of his own life

--Lydia Darrah, the Quaker woman who overheard British plans to attack George Washington's unprepared army and cleverly took a secret warning to him, saving the army and the War of Independence.

And many others!

Sure to be an all-time family favorite, Portraits of Integrity will be treasured as a centerpiece of family devotions or as a part of Character Concepts Curriculum. Portraits of Integrity will inspire young people and their parents as well, with the examples of people who dared and did great deeds that have gone down in history.

Each of the 45 stories found in Volumes 1-3 illustrates a different character quality as demonstrated in inspiring true stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portaits of Integrity February 27, 2013
By jzkey
Format:Kindle Edition
We are currently reading through "Portraits" and we are really enjoying it. It not only teaches character along with Bible verses for memory, but it also has taught us a ton of history that we might not have come across in other books. We are also using "Character Trails: Learning to Walk in the Path of Righteousness" by Marilyn Boyer which compliments "Portraits" perfectly. Thank you Marilyn Boyer and Grace Tumas for another great book that shows Godly character demonstrated in the lives of real people in history!

I have this book hard copy and am excited that it is now available in ebook formate. I get to have it on my iPad for easy reference. As a preacher and teacher this book is packed full of example and illustrations of godly character useful to edify your own soul as well as in sermon or devotional preparations when looking for illustrations. And you can beat the price make this an exceptional value.

In a day when history is not truthfully imparted to the next generation, the Boyers have successfully portrayed history simply and truthfully. Young people today are bombarded with renditions of history ,which are vague at best, that lacks truth.

A must have to go back to for reference and inspiration in a day when inspiration is at a all time low. This resource is a definate character builder with each chapter full of examples of character qualities we all can glean from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing! February 27, 2013
By Carol
Format:Kindle Edition
We bought this book last year at a homeschool convention after meeting the Boyers. We use it along with our Bible time and our son who is 11 BEGS for this book every day. It is full of people who exemplify 40 different character qualities that we should all try and emulate. Each character sketch is begun with the Character, a description of the character quality and a memory verse. The sketches are wonderful and fascinating and deal mostly with times during wars that certain real people have demonstrated each of these different qualities. If you really take the time to pay attention to these sketches, you are humbled to know more about these people and want to live up to their examples. Each sketch is ended with a series of questions to find out how much you understand and to make you think about what you've learned. i would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quality Christian book to teach character to their children. We read it to all our children, ages 4-11, but no one besides the 11 year old really pays a lot of attention and latches onto it. I would buy it again in an instant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to teach children CHARACTER and history! February 27, 2013
By Pablo
Format:Kindle Edition
We have six children ages 9 and under. One of the most important things we want to teach our children is about CHARACTER. For the past 6 months, using "Portraits of Integrity" we have been memorizing the definitions of the character qualities and memorizing the accompanying Scripture verses. My husband and I love the results! For instance, Obedience means "Doing what is expected of me cheerfully, immediately, and thoroughly." Wow is it helpful for them to know that definition when we are talking about obedience/disobedience!! And it is music to our ears as parents to hear our children quoting Scripture. I am so thankful for "Portraits of Integrity" as well as all the other character books the Boyers have written. Please make sure to check out their website and make use of their other wonderful and trustworthy products!! [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased this book to help teach my children about the amazing true stories of those who have gone before us in establishing our country. I feel so much of our national history has been lost. This has been a valuable tool in teaching my children about the godly people of great character who have gone before us. Their examples have inspired and impressed my children and myself of their bravery, courage, dedication and faithfulness. These stories will bring lasting impressions on your heart and in your child's memory forever. Thank you for putting this amazing book together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! February 27, 2013
By Porkpie
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book along with some other character-building materials by the author. It is so compelling that my 11 year old son wanted to read the whole thing on his own and not wait for us read it together! It's a great combination of interesting historical accounts and character-building stories. This book is much better than many of the character-building books I own, simply because these stories are true! I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars My children really enjoy this book February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
We purchased this book as part of a homeschool curriculum on character traits. Portraits of Integrity is by far our favorite part of this curriculum. It is filled with stories of real people, in real life situations that showed strength of character. We use this book as a read aloud for my children (girl-4, boy-7, boy-10). The boys are riveted by the stories and are quick to remind me if I forget to integrate the book into our lessons. I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for real life, non Hollywood-generated role models.
