Anna’s Friends Children’s Book Series
Anna’s Friends is a learning program created for parents and children to discover and develop their God-given motivational gifts in a fun and engaging way. The foundation of the program is a series of 8 children’s books written from the perspective of children, each one with a different motivational gift found in Romans 12:6-8.
The stories in each book show the interaction between each of Anna’s Friends in a multitude of life scenarios that children will be able to relate to, and how they would respond to one another based on their gift. You may find your child connecting with a character that most resembles them thus enabling them to learn what motivates and inspires them as well.
You will meet (left to right) Maria (the giver), Sarah (the teacher), Daniel (the prophet), Anna (the facilitator/administrator with the jump rope), Cayden (the merciful), Hiro (the exhorter), and Jesse (the servant).
Here are a few comments from parents
Elizabeth: “… This is a tool (the Anna’s Friends series) that I as a parent, as well as my children, have thoroughly enjoyed. It became the book that my three girls requested to read every night. Early in the study, they would each be so excited to see if the next character was the one they could closely relate to. Then, when they had the exciting moment of figuring out their gift, I found myself being equally as excited. They enjoyed the questions at the end of the chapters in Book 1 that helped them figure out if they were like Maria, Anna, Jesse, Hiro, and so forth. My youngest two daughters, ages 4 and 6, would squeal with excitement, “That’s me! I do that!” Interesting enough, not only did this book series help build confidence in each child regarding their gifts and how best to use them, but it helped build confidence in their “weaker” areas. For example, my middle daughter, age 6, who has the gift of Mercy, realized that daydreaming is common for others who possess the gift of mercy, as well as the hesitation to jump in and make new friends. She is less self conscience about these things now because she sees it as part of God’s design in her and others. It has encouraged her not to shy away from those areas, but to embrace them and grow.
How can we help you?
Here’s how to begin your discovery journey
Parenting and educating children can be a challenge
When we learn what makes them tick those challenges turn into loads of fun! The Parent’s Guide to Understanding What Motivates Your Child identifies those challenges and gives parent’s suggestions for overcoming them.
That’s why identifying your child’s motivational gift(s) should be added to your list of topics to teach them; a part of training your children in the way they should go. I love how the Good News Bible says the verse in Proverbs 22:6: Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life.

NEW ITEM added to the Anna’s Friends educational collection
Written through the eyes of children, this story helps Anna and her friends understand bad things happen to some of their friends. (Since the average age of human trafficking victims is 12-13, this timely book is a look at sexual exploitation and abuse of children, written with integrity, humor, and compassion.)
Hi everyone! It’s me, Anna!
My mom took me, Maria and Daniel to watch a movie about a little girl who wanted to be a ballerina dancer, but some older people made her do really terrible things. I told Miss Yvonne, the lady who made the movie, that I was going to bring all my friends to watch the movie and that we need to know about this.
In this book, Sophie is going into the second grade. She has a secret that nobody knows about except her brother, Joshua, who is in fifth grade. He’s one of our friends.
Sophie really wants to talk about what happened to her, but is afraid to, so she doesn’t talk at all, except a little bit at home. I think me and my friends can help her, and other school kids that are being hurt like Sophie.
I want you to read Sophie Has a Secret with your mom’s or a trusted adult. That way they can explain some things to you that we won’t really talk about in this book.
