"This is a wonderful book for parents to share with their adolescent children. I love the methodology in explaining Your Special Gift!" Marjorie Holmes, bestselling author
Having "the talk" can sometimes be an awkward experience for both parent and child. Even so, I didn't want to wait until my children's hormones kicked in, and I didn't want to be caught off guard when they had questions, but most of all, I didn't want them growing up with misconceptions concerning sex. I wanted my children to be informed about the facts of life, yet without being too sexually explicit in the process, because some of the facts weren't good such as pornography, diseases, and predators, but these subjects needed to be addressed as well.
As a result, I told them what I have written in Your Special Gift, by using the analogy of a gift, a lock, and a key to define commonly used sexual terms, and to caution them about possible consequences, and to warn them of potential predators. I also told them what God says about this Special Gift, and I used Scripture to define true love.
The simplicity of the gift analogy opens the door of communication between parent and child in an effective straightforward, and yet sensitive way, so that any question concerning sex can be answered by using this method.
Your Special Gift is a faith-based guide that can be read alongside most 7-to-12 year old children, or presented to them as a valuable reference.
If you don't tell them, someone else will.

This small e-book is amazing! It defines and addresses areas that you want your kids to be aware of, but don’t always know how to convey the point. It also briefly mentions consequences of exchanging cell phone photos, how to be wary of “lines,” and then ends with a warning about predators. Highly recommended!
This seclude hollow that only the best of climbers can get to is located at the top of a fifty foot pine tree. It is spacious and is reserved specifically for icetail, whitewing, and streakfire.
