About the Keepers of the Faith Program:
Yes! This is the organization that you have heard so many good things about. Dedicated to providing a system for children to record new home and family skills, with an emphasis on Christian values, Keepers of the Faith undertook the grueling task of setting up "yardsticks" for measuring well over 100 skills. Thankfully, Keepers of the Faith is not just relegated to large groups. Individual families can also benefit from the materials.

Contenders for Boys, Keepers for Girls
  • Contenders for the Faith is for your sons ages 6 to 16. It provides guidelines for 89 different skills, each an important component to preparing our sons to be godly men.
  • Keepers at Home is typically for daughters 6 - 14, but with guidelines for over 100 different skills, some older daughters will continue to find their handbooks quite useful. Because there are no real age limitations, older children are free to participate.

  • Family Life, Nature, Homemaking, Crafts, Leadership, Sports...
    Each handbook is organized according to topic; Family Life, Nature, Homemaking, Crafts, Leadership, Sports and others, with outlines of what Keepers of the Faith has felt were the minimum requirements to master that skill. You, of course, may wish to modify their list by adding to or removing some of the requirements. There are some how-to's included, although for crafts in particular, you will want to augment the handbook; there is just not enough space to teach it all.

    Some of the topics for the girls are camping, fire safety, home decorating, organization, sign language and scheduling.

    The Contender's manual follows the same format adding additional practical skills, with more scope and complexity for the older boys. Topics include organization, foreign language, fishing and small engine repair.

    Follows Traditional Guidelines of Masculine and Feminine Behavior
    The skills for each book follow the traditional guidelines of masculine and feminine behavior. We will make no apologies for that, but merely suggest that if you feel your son or daughter should acquire proficiencies not traditionally ascribed to boys or girls, teach them. These handbooks should in no way limit what your children learn, but instead, they will free you up from thinking through the steps of each skill. If you would like to mix and match from both books, you will not be prevented from doing so.

    Achievement Pins Available
    For children that complete the requirements, top quality pins are available directly from Keepers of the Faith. More information is included with each handbook. Of course, pins are not a necessary requirement to use this program; you can acknowledge your child's achievement in any other fashion. And yes, boys can earn pins from the girl's handbook and visa versa.

    An Outstanding Supplement To Any Curriculum
    Please note that while many helps are included in each handbook these are not complete how-to books. You may, in some cases, need to find an outside source for teaching some of the subjects. This program is, without question, a valuable addition to your family's curriculum.

    An Essential Guide for Parents and Leaders is also available.

    Excellent Book! September 29, 2012
    Reviewer: CCA  
    Keepers at Home is such an incredible "skill building" book for our daughters and a general guide book for us, as parents, for the MANY skills we would like to teach them. While obviously we will not teach our daughters all of the skills included in the Keepers at Home book, it is such a valuable resource to give us some direction and ideas to implement and skills, character, etc to impart to our daughters. I appreciate how thorough the Keepers at Home book is and how well laid out the skills are in each of the various categories. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful tool to help me as I prepare my daughters for the calling God has placed on their lives.

    great for summer projects May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: blessed4xover  
    During the summer months, we like to have goals and projects to keep everyone busy and productive. This has been our go-to book for our girls to get ideas. There are artistic skills such as calligraphy and floral arranging, (which our girls have developed enough skill in to be paid for their services!), relational, spiritual, organizational areas to focus on, and a host of practical "keepers at home" skills that many girls today are not taught. This has been a great resource for us, and is definitely the book to pull out if you ever hear, "I'm bored!"

    A must if you have daughters! October 19, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    I used this book when I was younger and now I have 4 daughters!  This book is chock full of ideas, crafts, project, recipes etc.  This is a practical handbook of things that you can teach your daughter to help develop her "Mommy skills." She will enjoy the challenge of finishing a section, and you will delight in knowing that your daughter is learning skills that will benefit her the rest of her life.  Do your daughter a favor and buy this book!

    A little gem of a book February 24, 2010
    Reviewer: Grace (mother of 7) from Wasilla AK  
    I love this little gem of a book. It has great ideas for teaching your daughter all of life's most basic homemaking skills! Each new skill has book recommendations, projects, and scripture verses to memorize. My daughter and I really enjoy picking a skill and working on it together. It has given her an added incentive to memorize scripture and read the Bible all the way through as well. I have the older version, and can't wait to see how they improved on the new one! I highly recommend this product! I also have the Contenders book, and like it as well.
