Hi Moms and Dads!

Welcome to Anna’s Friends!

Anna is headed to see her best neighbor friend, Daniel

My name is Anna Renee Riley — the one with the jump rope — and I really 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? 

My friends all have gifts too! 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 read. 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.

Thanks for reading, Love, Anna  




This year I will be having a booth at the Southeast Homeschool EXPO in Atlanta, GA.  July 26th-28th at the Cobb Galleria Center.  

With the Anna’s Friends series you will learn why your children respond to life the way they do based on the Romans 12:6-8 motivational gifts that we are all born with. Topics of discussion include: 1. Scriptural foundation for the gifts; 2. Purpose and Description of each of the seven gifts: Exhortation; Facilitation; Giving; Mercy; Prophecy; 3. How to identify your child’s gift by examining their character traits; 4. How to develop your child’s gift; exploring challenges of each respective gift. And of course, stop by my booth. 


Unfortunately, Anna’s Friends will not have a booth at the 2018 FPEA Convention. However, we are still offering the same specials as if we were there.
