What Does the Father say about you?

Have you ever stopped to ask, “What does God think about me? Who does He say that I am?”   We all want to know who we are. We seek and search and try to “find ourselves.” Eventually, we ask three questions.

1. Who am I?

2. Why am I here?

3. What's my purpose?

"This book is a must for both children and adults. I have paid thousands of dollars to coaches to help me visualize my dreams. My Father Said I Could does the same thing."

Annette Benging


"Father Said I Could  harkens the necessity for positive affirmations. This book is a wonderful illustration of capturing the dream in each of us and believing that we can. Others will be able to relate to the characters as I was able to relate to Ana. We believe in what our Father says we can do."
