Persons are our Best Gifts: Inspirational Stories for Person-Centered Living
CATEGORY: Spiritual Discernment
CATEGORY: Spirituality & Meditation
People are our greatest assets; persons are our best-loved gifts. We treasure people and particular persons for the varied ways in which they enrich our lives and bring out the best in us. Persons Are Our Best Gifts is a treasury of "people-gifts"—a collection of over one hundred inspiring and motivational “stories-with-a-difference” centered on personality and relationships.
The first section highlights the value of “persons” in our lives. The second section emphasizes “close encounters” with people and presents a gallery of “personality types.” The stories mirror the realities that make up our lives and provoke personal reflection, and they also provide powerful tools for parents and teachers for instruction and discussion. This book is a handy reference for speakers, presenters, preachers, and writers.
