Welcome to the latest episode of Flourish-Meant! In this enlightening discussion, host Tina Yeager sits down with children's author and speaker, Jennifer Noel Wilson, to explore the delicate balance between healthy competition and friendship. They delve into the impact of competition on children, the role of parents in modeling healthy competition, the influence of childhood experiences on adult relationships, and the significance of prayer and biblical principles in cultivating positive friendships. Jennifer also shares invaluable insights on how parents can support their children's journey towards building strong and meaningful relationships. Tune in to gain valuable wisdom and practical tips on fostering healthy competition and friendship in your family and community.

Jennifer is an author, speaker, children's ministry leader, triathlete, wife, and mom to three teenagers. A graduate of Wheaton college, she desires to help bring families and children closer to Jesus through serving, teaching, and writing.

Tina and Jennifer explore the role of competition in children's lives, its potential impact on friendships, and how parents can model healthy competition for their kids. With valuable insights into identifying and nurturing healthy competition, this episode offers practical tips for parents and caregivers aiming to guide children toward positive and supportive relationships in their competitive endeavors.

From the abundance of valuable scripture references to the practical advice on redirecting negative competition and fostering positive sportsmanship, this episode is a must-listen for anyone navigating the intersection of competition and friendship within children's activities.

In addition to the engaging dialogue, Jennifer shares about her debut picture book, "The Best Trophy," which encourages children to develop godly friendships by praying for each other and putting others first, based on the principles found in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

We hope this episode provides valuable insights and encouragement for nurturing healthy competition and fostering strong friendships within your community.
