Keepers / Contenders

We have done some form of Keepers at Home / Contenders of the Faith since my oldest was in first grade.   The website Keepers of the Faith has several resources for parents or teachers to use with children of all ages.  To me this program is very similar to Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts where the children strive to learn a new skill and receive a badge for completion.  The skills for girls vary from learning the books of the Bible, sewing, table setting and cooking.  Boys skills include things such as archery, Bible reading, knots, and wood working.  There is a wide variety of character badges and skill badges.  Even when we haven’t had others to work with us on the badges we have often done many of the activities in the books.  They are useful skills and even a few things moma wishes she had learned as a child.

Below are just a few of the badges and skills that a child can work toward.
