    Book club question led me here – “describe characteristics (character traits) of Hannah” – this helped me greatly in being able to share my answers and I plan to suggest to others to check this website – “you are never too old to learn” – in mid-seventies and mind has lots more room for expansion.

    There are some traits that I believe should be listed that aren’t such as educated or knowledgeable, a few others too, but more or less this has helped me.

    I am reading a book that asked, try this, write character traits you admire in others. Choose one a week write out definition and compare to concordance in bible,find two verses that relate to that trait. Focus on that trait for the week, noting how you measure up.This page gave me many traits to choose from, I will be busy… Thanks

    It is interesting to note, there are 66 Books in the Bible and you have 66 character traits. Thank you for your list and your information. All of us need to stop spelling integrity with an “e” and character with a “k”. We all need to be honest persons, instead of living too much in situational ethics. For example, I would like to have given more specific details as to how you have helped me, but in this society increasingly everything we speak and or write may someday be taken out of context and used against us for someone else’s personal gain.
