Author: Randy Traeger


Inspiring Stories of Character

Stories are a fun and effective way to “put the skin on” the moral lessons we want to convey to the young people in our lives. Historically, the purpose of stories and myths was to help impart universal truths or virtues through the observation of human behavior. Stories have the power to reach within us, stimulate our emotion, and compel our involvement.

Coach Randy Traeger, executive director of the Virtue First Foundation, has assembled a collection of short, entertaining stories—including some of our most beloved fables and folk tales—that will help reinforce positive character traits. Children from 3 to 103 will be inspired toward virtues such as honor, humility, self-discipline, and sympathy. Voices of Virtue is enjoyable on its own or as a companion resource to Traeger’s more comprehensive book, Building Character: One Virtue at a Time.

“Coach Traeger’s passion for virtue could change the world. This book will change your life . . . because that is what virtue has been doing since the beginning of time.” –Justin Fatica, international speaker and best-selling author of Hard as Nails
