American churches are experiencing a power shortage, declare the authors of “Living Yours Strengths.” “People aren’t harnessing the power of their innate gifts.”
Does this message sound familiar? Have you felt disconnected from your church lately? Are you not attending as much? Or maybe you’re a passionate member who wants to become even more involved, and would also like to inspire others.
Whatever the case, more than half of churchgoers report that they don’t get to do what they do best in their congregations. And this is driving people away. But it doesn’t have to be this way. “Living Your Strengths” shows all members how to use their innate gifts to enrich their congregations – right now. It teaches you to identify and affirm your talents, and how to use them for growth and service.
Personal stories and actionable advice for the spiritually committed, all rooted in a decades of research.
Even in a country as religious as the U.S., many people feel disengaged from their faith communities. More than half report that they really don’t get the opportunity in their congregation to do what they do best. People just feel disconnected.
Maybe it’s because those faith communities make unwitting missteps: Pastors ask shy people to be Greeters, or recruit innately disorganized people to coordinate church events.
The problem is simply this: Too many people’s talents are going unappreciated. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Living Your Strengths shows readers how to use their innate gifts to enrich their faith communities. The book — written by onetime pastors Albert Winseman and Curt Liesveld, and Donald O. Clifton, co-author of the national bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths — shows people how to identify and affirm their talents, and how to use them for growth and service. Most importantly, Living Your Strengths helps people discover their true calling.
The book includes an ID code that gives readers access to StrengthsFinder.com, a personality assessment that reveals user’s top 5 talent themes. Spiritual enrichment begins with turning talents into strengths. Living Your Strengths is an indispensable guide to help readers to just that.
