Anger vs. Self-Control Family Bible Study / Unit Study

Anger is an issue in many homes. It may come out as “frustration,” gestures and facial expressions, sighing, yelling, or harsh words. We may call it many things, but at the base of it, we are sinning in our anger and need to learn self-control. 

Teaching our children to handle feelings of anger and frustration in a biblical way is an important part of our job as parents. Learning that same self-control for ourselves is just as critical. The Anger vs. Self-Control Unit Study is a result of much prayer, study, and application in our own home. It is is also the first in a new series of products here on Proverbial Homemaker called God’s Little Characters

Anger vs. Self-Control Character Study and Family Bible study - includes a teaching poster, 5-day devotions and lessons, scripture cards, copywork, and more!
