Book #6 is Now Available "Jesse Can't Say No"

Book #6 in the Anna's Friends Series, Jesse Can’t Say No, is a fun story about how Jesse uses his motivational gift of giving to help his mother who is having twins, and his father around the new farm they will be moving to soon. You’ll meet Jesse's pet goats, Mimi and Dodi and a Calf named Buster, and some other fun farm animals; a geese, some cows and chickens, and even Jesse's frog, Gino..

This excerpt shows us how Jesse jumps right in to help, even when he’s not asked:

Stan the painter was high up on his ladder painting the eves of the Delaney’s new house. “Harry, get me that paint bucket over there,” Stan called to his helper who was almost too old to move, but wasn’t ready to retire, so Stan let him help out how ever he could.

“I’ll get it,” Jesse hollered. He dropped the water hose he was using to water the newly planted shrubs by the front porch and ran to pick up the paint bucket. “Here you go Mr. Stan,” Jesse said as he scurried over to the ladder with the bucket full of fern green paint jiggling from side to side.

Harry, who looked like he was 200 years old, Jesse thought, hobbled out from behind the house. Harry didn’t get to the paint bucket before Jesse did. “Hey kid, you do your job and I’ll do mine, okay?” Harry was very grumpy to Jesse, not very nice.

“I was just trying to help,” Jesse answered back as he attempted to lift up the heavy bucket to give to Harry, paint jumping over the top of the can and splashing onto Jesse’s pants and boots.

“Yeh, well, now look what you’ve done. You’ve got paint all over you.” Harry raised his hand like he was preaching a fiery sermon. “Your father is going to skin you alive for getting those boots stained with paint.” Harry scowled with a rickety voice, “Now get on over there and do your job.”
How to tell if your child has the motivational gift of facilitation

So many parents wonder if their child has a gift of leadership. When I ask them one question, "Is he or she rebellious?" they most always answer with a chuckle and another comment, "YES!" Now you recognize the child who has been given the motivational gift of facilitation?

Purpose of the Gift of Facilitation

Romans 12:8 - The purpose of the gift of facilitation is to offer support to leadership, but we must recognize that they are leaders in their own right. They are known as administrative leaders and serve by leading people in a certain direction or for a certain cause. Facilitators show and point the way for others, like a shepherd leading sheep, when it comes to getting a task or project accomplished. They can inspire others to a common vision/mission and for a specific outcome.

Excerpt: “Mom?” Anna’s tone grew serious. She wanted to talk to her mother about what Joshua had told her about Sophie, but she did a pinkie swear not to tell anyone.

Mrs. Riley slid over on the sofa so she could look at Anna face to face. “What is it, Punkie?”

“I did a pinkie swear with Joshua about something, but I don’t think it needs to be a secret from you. Maria wanted me to tell her, but I wouldn’t. I told her when I do a pinkie swear it means I can’t tell, even if she is my besty, and I had to be true to the one I promised.” Anna was very serious. She sat cross armed and cross legged on the sofa. “What do you think?”

Mrs. Riley thought for a moment then made a comment. “Well, you are right. When you promise someone to keep a secret you should. I am proud of you.”

Anna smiled up at her mother, but not a really big smile that said she 100 percent agreed. “Well.” Anna scrunched her nose and bit down on her lower lip. “What if the secret is something that I need to talk about because…just, because?”
