Author Bridget Watkins knows that kids can be cruel. Without knowing the consequences for their actions and words, children often say things that have the potential to hurt others very seriously. In her inspirational guidebook, Watkins shares her personal story of struggles and eventual success in an effort to inspire children who are facing any kind of challenge to believe in their potential.
Watkins offers a glimpse into her upbringing and describes how she learned to handle each obstacle by relying on not only herself, but also her faith. As she guides children through a variety of scenarios and several steps that emphasize the importance of good choices, she includes questions to help them identify goals, values, and prepare for a successful future. While describing her own walk of faith, Watkins reveals how she learned to trust in God and believe in her abilities, which eventually helped her find success.
Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, but Words Will Never Hurt Me shares anecdotes, Scripture, and words of wisdom in order to encourage children to dream and have confidence in themselves, regardless of their circumstances.
Bridget Watkins and her husband served in ministry for nearly thirty years. Her poems have been published in The Sword of the Spirit magazine and in Treasured Poems of America; one of her short stories, ?Chef Caleb,? was published in delicious living magazine. Bridget lives in Decatur, Illinois.
