Parents Guide



Visit Anna's Neighborhood Store 

One of the challenges that all of us experience is figuring out what we were created to do on earth. And, even when we think we know, at times we still wonder if we are right in the center of the flow of life and maximizing our full potential. You see, we all come into this world with certain God given abilities that enable us to express God’s love. When we learn of those around us who need to see that love, we are motivated (based on our gift) to meet their need. The Parent’s Guide to Understanding What Motivates Your Child (it is just that – a guide) will help you understand why your little ones express certain types of behavior. It is fascinating to watch them grow, isn’t it? They are so eager to learn.  

Anna and her friends each possess one of the 7 motivational gifts found in Romans 12:6-8. In the Parent’s Guide to Understanding What Motivates Your Child, you will meet Anna (the leader/facilitator), Daniel (the prophet), Maria (the giver), Cayden (the merciful), Jesse (the servant), Hiro (the exhorter), and Sarah (the teacher).  Here is what you will see in the Parent’s Guide.
