Did you ever wonder how to describe/define the different nuances when comparing virtues such as kindness, caring, compassion, empathy and friendliness or how about determination, steadfastness, strength, perseverance and resilience? Well wonder no more!
My dear friend, Scott Feraco, founder and creative director for The “V” Channel has shared the definition of 52 of the virtues. The definitions come from The Family Virtues Guide , written by Linda Kavelin Popov, Dr. Dan Popov and John Kavelin. Oprah said of the family guide, “It’s the instruction manual our kids didn’t come with.”
