The Virtues Cards app is an easy-to-use tool to aid you in your everyday quest to acquire and cultivate virtues. It’s a fast pass to a life of joy, meaning, and purpose.

Based on work endorsed by the Dalai Lama and honored by the United Nations, the app offers simple guidance to help people strengthen qualities such as compassion, excellence, gratitude, strength, hope, resilience and justice. Like a book of daily readings, it is designed to help you achieve a strong focus in your personal, professional and spiritual growth, only with far greater utility.

The Virtues Cards app has many applications. It can be used in decision making; to strengthen relationships; enhance values and ethics; create a positive mindset; or simply to provide a positive focus for your day.

Set a daily reminder to do a Virtues Pick and see how integrating the virtues into your daily routine begins to change your life and the lives of those around you. Parents can use the app to raise children of compassion and integrity. Educators can reference the app to create safe and caring spaces for learning. Civic and business leaders can apply virtues to encourage excellence, ethical conduct, and a culture of recognition and gratitude in the workplace.

The cards are based on research by The Virtues ProjectTM, a grassroots initiative founded in 1991 to help children and youth develop authentic self-esteem and encourage their practice of virtues in everyday life. It quickly expanded as a global movement for people of all ages to value life more deeply and become the change they wished to see in the world.

People worldwide have been using physical cards for decades. Now, thanks to the Virtues Cards app, it’s easier than ever to make virtues top of mind and incorporate them into daily living.

Life changer!

It’s like an angel whispering in your ear each day as to how to live a better life. I read one card at night and then read the same card again in the morning for reinforcement. I really like the non-scroll interface: the front side of the card explains the virtue and why it is important; the flip side of the card tells you how to practice the virtue. No endless scrolling!

I love the shake feature where a random card is selected to give you a virtue for the day or virtue for the moment. The journal feature is cool too to record my thoughts. You can record a voice recording if you don’t feel like typing.

The interface is simple and each virtue is beautifully written and meaningful. I wish this app existed when my children were young. I would have read them a virtue each night at dinner or before bed.

I bought all decks as they were very reasonably priced. This app has an excellent return on a very small investment.

The only improvement I would suggest is to let users choose a plain background for the cards as some were hard to read with the schmaltzy image in the background. Still worth a five star rating though and I can see why most people would like the softer presentation.


Perfect tool for promoting mindfulness and re-centering when stressed!

I think this app is great for anyone who is looking for inspiration or guidance on how to be a better person!! I start my morning with a few daily-readers and now I pick a virtue everyday too!

As someone who works a busy and stressful job, this app helps when I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed. I can’t always take the time to meditate but I always have the time to take a few breaths and read whichever virtue I feel I need in that moment. It’s been super helpful!

Beautiful experience!

These cards are remarkable. Inspiring images, poetic descriptions now in digital form. The virtues cards offer an extraordinary tool for creating rituals based on what we care about. I love how I can shake my phone to receive a surprise virtue or choose from the neatly organized rows. Bravo! A great contribution to the larger community at a time when lifting up our virtues is more important than ever.
