TOOLS FOR LIFE
CHARACTER QUALITIES the
GIVE PEOPLE THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO BUILD THE LIFE THEY WANT
Everyone wants to build an amazing life...but what if you just don't have the skills to build one?
That's where you come in! With the help of Master Builders Skip and Sylvia, and the relatable and reluctant learner Thor, this curriculum will help you empower people to build the lives they want. Lives that are Strong, Functional and Inspirational!
Skip and Sylvia will help you get the tools you need to build the life you want...
and they will show you how to become a master at using them!
If Thor can learn to PUT DOWN HIS WEAPONS AND PICK UP HIS TOOLS, so can you!
PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS. PICK UP YOUR TOOLS.
Many of us have grown up believing that weapons such as violence, slander, manipulation, gossip, deceit, and intimidation are our best option for building the life we want. But these weapons can only make you feel secure in the moment! Weapons can't build a shelter that will last a lifetime and keep you safe while you learn and grow. That's what tools are for!
Character qualities are the tools you need to build the life you want!
