Meet 7 of Anna’s Friends – How to Understand Your Children’s Motivational Gifts

Anna of Anna's FriendsHi Moms and Dads! I really want you to meet 7 of Anna’s Friends. They are going to teach you HOW TO understand your children’s motivational gifts.

My name is Anna Renee Riley and … I like having lots of friends. Mr. Henderson, our second and third grade school teacher told us we are all born with gifts from God that help us show love to others. They’re called motivational gifts and there are seven of them. Mine is the longest word–facilitator.

Mr. H., that’s what we all call Mr. Henderson, told me the reason I like having a lot of friends and writing notes to myself to plan ahead is because it’s part of my gift. I LOVE to do projects, so I need a lot of friends to get my projects done. Isn’t that cool?

Hiro is an exhorter, and my best friend, Maria, is a giver. Cayden is really sweet and cries when our friends are sad because she is a mercy person, and Jesse, my cousin, is always helping us, even when we don’t ask for help, because he wants to serve. Sarah doesn’t play with us sometimes because she’d rather read books and then tell us what she reads. It’s her gift of teaching.

Let’s see, that leaves Daniel. Oh yeh. He has a gift of prophecy. That one’s kinda different. But I wrote all about it in my first book, The Assignment

Discover each of my friends and their gifts to help you easily find your way around my site just below.

Thanks for reading,
Love, Anna

P.S. Meet 7 of Anna’s Friends now starting with me, Anna.
