Summary

What if your children could learn now what may have taken us years to learn?

Nearly every child has aspirations of what they want to be when they grow up? Fast-forward their lives and almost eight in 10 of them, as adults, aren't working on their gifts and talents. And we see the impact.

Millions of adults are squandering their talents and wasting their time in jobs they don't love. They feel trapped and dissatisfied. But where did it start? Many times, it started in childhood. My Father Said I Could is about four African-American siblings who have big dreams and how they overcome doubt, fear, and naysayers by listening to one steady, comforting voice.

This inspiring book teaches children:

  • How to handle doubt, unbelief, and fear in others as well as in themselves
  • The timeless lesson of continuing to ask, seek, and knock for opportunities
  • How to explore their own unique gifts and talents
  • How to learn to accept the twists and turns that life brings while continuing to pursue their own destiny, despite the many voices they hear along the way

Author, coach, and speaker Anita McLaurin paints a picture of four African-American siblings who have big dreams. Their father equips them with the tools to follow their dreams so they can experience the freedom to pursue their own path, utilize their gifts and talents, and live a life of significance.

a wonderful inspiration

I played this for my daughter today. she's only 7 months but I plan to share with her often as she grows older. it was inspiring even for me. I can't wait to right down and manifest some new dreams, after all, my Father said I could.

Our kids deserve to know they can do anything they desire and this book will definitely help them to know that. It's a good reminder for adults as well!
