Growing up, author Lucille Williams didn’t understand how to identify her strengths, so her weaknesses captured most of her attention. Instead of thriving, she struggled with anxiety because she couldn’t achieve like the other kids.
Many children face similar confusion, but with guidance, they can understand their strengths, overcome their weaknesses, and find their identity in Christ. To assist parents in helping their kids discover their God-given abilities, Lucille wrote a children’s book called Turtle Finds His Talent: A Slide-and-Find Book: Discovering How God Made You Special.
In the story, Tanner the Turtle notices his friends have abilities that he doesn’t: Allie the bunny hops; Lincoln the fox runs fast; Joey the giraffe can reach things up high. Embarrassed by his lack of talent, Tanner withdraws into his shell to hide. But then he learns a valuable lesson.
Lucille Williams is with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Teaching Children to Celebrate Their Strengths” to share how parents can help their children discover their God-given talent, including:
- Let your children struggle.
- When facing a struggle, make it fun.
- Be there for your child.
- Build their confidence.
- Allow them to try different things and focus on their strengths.
- Believe in them.
