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 centred on personality and relationships. The first section highlights the value of ‘persons’ in our life. The second section emphasises close encounters with people, and presents a gallery of personality types. The stories mirror the realities that make up our life and provoke personal reflection and provide powerful tools by parents and teachers for instruction and discussion. Persons Are Our Best Gifts is a handy reference book for speakers, presenters, preachers and writers.
