The Language of Blessing

This book is definitely going to be a blessing for any reader. It goes into detail about how one can go about finding their true gift and how they are a blessing.  However,t it really does  show a person how they can be a bigger blessing to someone else in their life.
God put each of us on this earth for a distinct reason. Wouldn't it make sense for us to find out each of our own God-given talents and gifts so we can use them for God's purpose? There is no one else in the world like us. God created each one of us so unique with gifts, talents, characteristics and attributes that there can be no other like us!
Too often as parents we focus on the negative instead of the positive.
We want to be careful how we hinder with the gifts and talents God has given our children. Demeaning comments or lack of praise may keep a child from pursuing their God-given talents.   We must demonstrate patience as your child takes time to learn things and praise their success.
Cavanaugh is also quick to note that while we should praise a child for his accomplishments, attributes and talents, we should not over-inflate our child's ego.
Included at the end of each chapter is an "Application Activity" to help gain a better understanding of your God-given talents and abilities.

I found this book to be greatly beneficial and interesting! I would rate it as 5 stars.

Disclosure: I was provided this book to review through Tyndale Publishing. It in no way affected my opinion of this book.
