Welcome to Anna’s Friends
One of the highlights of working with youth was when I discovered and came to understand the motivational gifts found in the book of Romans. I had an ahah moment… Imagine the impact on our children’s lives if we could truly guide them in the direction they were born to go in!
(Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.)
I quickly jotted down some ideas and created a notebook for each one of the gifts, then set out to completely and thoroughly understand each of them. It was exhilarating to imagine the impact on children if they only understood why they did the things they do–if parents understood why their children did the things they do!
It is my hope that families who take seriously the responsibility of raising their children come to understand the value of discovering their children’s God-given motivations and then develop those gifts.
