Your Strengths

Decades of research has shown that when employees are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on individual, team, and organizational performance is powerful. The problem is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.

Let me help you become more effective, efficient, and engaged in your life!

It was a natural progression for me to think deeply about Gallup Strengths through the lens of my faith, and soon I recognized that the heroes of the Scriptures were operating in God-given Strengths!

You are AWESOME! Just Be Yourself!

I teach middle school students. We have been diving into their strengths this week and one of my awesome kids sent this to me.

I suppose if I could breathe into my students, I would want them to know that they are loved just as they are. They are awesome, quirky, flawed, beautiful kids. And if they would just see that in themselves, and then let the world see it, we would have a really awesome world!

It is so great that we are all uniquely made. What a boring place it would be if we were all the same.

So, go out there. Be yourself. Let the world discover the magic of your personality and how your mind thinks. We don't need anyone else, but who you are!

I challenge you to stun the world with YOU!

Deborah as Command®

Deborah helped turn the nation of Israel toward God after 20 years of oppression.
Imagine God used a woman to lead an army into battle and a nation to victory.
Those who think God can’t use women to lead need to read the story of Deborah. The real question is not can God use women to lead but why hasn’t God used more women?
Didn’t God use Deborah?
Didn’t God use Esther to save her nation?
Didn’t Jesus use the Samaritan woman at the well to spread the good news?

Strengths-Based Parenting

It's important for parents to explore their children's talents with them. Show you children that they are capable of greatness! Your gift of encouragement is priceless to them.

In Gallup's new book, "Strengths Based Parenting: Developing Your Children's Innate Talents", author Mary Reckmeyer notes six categories of parent behaviors that help to make a difference in their child's development.

Direction: Parents provide direction for their children by verbalizing their expectations, as well as advocate for their children when necessary.

Concentrated Time: Parents listen to what their children want to talk about, devote their time in doing homework, playing games, reading, etc.

Celebrations: Parents plan fun things to do with their children and make sure they celebrate positive experiences with them.

Recognition: Parents give generous praise directly focused on their child's achievements.

Emotional Support: Parents express their love and support their children emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally and socially.

Structure: Parents provide their children with opportunities for responsibility and intentionally discuss right and wrong decisions.

When I saw the video on "The Backyard Zamboni", I loved how the father helped his son develop the zamboni and then demonstrate how it works!

Everyone has talent. As you think of your own children, do you know what ways your children are uniquely talented? Do you know how they think? What's most important to them?

Your child has something very unique inside them! They have a special way of looking at the world! Their unique perspective has the ability to create new inventions, lead groups of people to better solutions, entertain others, and change the way we think about things!

If you are interested in more information of how to discover your child's strengths, contact me!
