Do You Know Why Your Child Seems to be a "Readaholic" at Times?
NOW AVAILABLE - Sarah Learns a Lesson
Happy August, everyone!,

Can you believe it is time to go BACK TO SCHOOL?? Wow, this summer flew by. I hope everyone had a terrific vacation and you are now ready to hit the books again. Be sure and add some time in your studies to help your children understand their God given motivations!

For those who are reading the Anna's Friends series, it is coming along nicely. I just completed book #5, Sarah Learns a Lesson, a look at the child with the gift of teaching, and am now working on book #6, Jesse Can't Say No. Jesse is Anna's friend with the gift of serving. The story line will take place on a farm with some really fun animals, Mimi, Doddi, and their twin baby goats.

Have a fun and prosperous school year!

God bless,

Anna and Yvonne

Be a Part of the Anna's Friends Focus Groups
Hi everyone! The Anna's friends books are coming along nicely. It's been great hearing from you and that you are enjoying the books. My circle of friends is really growing.

Yvonne has created something called, Focus Groups! She thinks your input as a parent, and your child's input, is really important. I happen to agree with her. That's why I'm asking you to be a part. Here's how it works.... 

We will mail you 2 free copies of Anna’s Friends books so you and your child can read them. After you have finished, just click the link to the form below and answer a few questions about each book you read. This will let us know if the books are headed in the right direction or if they need some editing for better content.

Just send me an email and let me know which of the following two books you would like me to send. Remember, the books are FREE!! We value the time you will be giving to this focus group. Oh, and remember to tell me your mailing address so I can get the books in the mail to you.

Book #2 is Anna's Friends Save the Animal Shelter (a look at the gift of facilitator / leader)
Book #3 is The Hayride (a look at the gift of giving)
Book #4 is Hiro Plays Tiny Tim (a look at the gift of exhortation / encouragement)
Book #5 is Sarah Learns a Lesson (a look at the gift of teaching)

If you already bought some of the books we would love it if you will fill out the questionnaire. And, if you have any questions, please call me, or email me, and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Anyway, thank you ahead of time for participating in this important group. The responses I am getting from other parents to the Parent’s Guide has been extremely favorable. Yay!! 'I'd love your feedback too!

Book # 5 Sarah Learns a Lesson is now ready. In this drama packed book that focuses on the child with the motivational gift of teaching the story will show you how these children interact with others based on their gift. These children tend to lock themselves up with a book 24 / 7. They just can't get enough reading time. Here is a sneak preview of what happens when Sarah discovers the only book store in town is taking out the kid's book section:

Sarah ran ahead of Charles toward the place where the kid’s books and games usually were. The only thing he and Sarah found was one shelf of books for the children.
“What? Where’s our books?” Sarah hollered so loud that everyone in the store turned to look at her. She walked right up to Mr. Lumpkin, tugged on his shirt sleeve, and interrupted his conversation with the very tall lady.

“Sarah, not now. I’m busy.” Mr. Lumpkin told her.

"I want to know where the kid’s books are?” Sarah put her hands on her hips and made her complaint. “You have to have kid’s books so we can read. You’re a book store and we want books too.” She continued making her case to Mr. Lumpkin. “Did you give my letter to Mrs. Tumbleweed? You promised you would give it to her.” 

Mr. Lumpkin closed his eyes and lowered his head.

The very tall lady stopped talking and thumbed through a large binder she was holding in her hands. She pulled out a piece of paper and held it out in front of her like it had the flu or something and began to read, having a hard time reading Sarah’s cursive writing.

“Are you this Sarah Sims?” Mrs. Tumbleweed asked sternly as she held out the letter that Sarah wrote.

“Yes, I am. Who are you?” Sarah asked with confidence.

Understanding What Motivates Your Child
In this one hour forum you will learn why your children respond to life the way they do. You will learn why they get along with some children really well and others not so well, why some barely speak 10 sentences in a day and others are boisterous or flamboyant. Does your child like to emulate you and do what you do? Then he/she may be exhibiting traits that are common to the gift of service. Does your child have a strong tendency to make notes to him/herself and seem bossy—even rebellious—at times? They just might be the next community leader. Or, does your child love to get up in front of people and be the center of attention? You may have an exhorter (encourager) on your hands. The seven motivational gifts are found in the book of Romans 12:6-8.
