How do you instill godly virtues in kids who live in a "me-first" world? Encouraging you to model positive behavior for your kids, Korie Robertson identifies nine specific traits and provides biblical insights to help you train up your children in the way they should go.

As stars of the hit reality show "Duck Dynasty", Korie and Willie Robertson receive thousands of letters and messages from fans asking how they raised such good kids. According to Korie, it wasn’t easy.
