I found the authors' articulation of the information to be clear, organized, and beneficial. It is great for the high school senior or college freshman, to help get started on the appropropriate path.

The Strengthsfinder test and this book put a whole new spin on stewardship of time and talent. It makes so much sense when you think about helping fellow parishioners find their place in ministry. God has given each of us our own unique talents and strengths and these are what we should be developing. The book gives practical suggestions for doing just that. It is so liberating to know I don't necessarily have to work on my weaknesses, but use my strengths to be happy in any situation, whether it be work, family relationships, or volunteering at my church.

Did you ever consider yourself that "square peg" trying to fit into a round hole? Ever have your parents see a report card with all A's and one C, and they immediately focus on how to get you to improve your "C"? Ever wonder why it seems like always the same people are asked to volunteer for church groups, yet wonder if you have a place to help? If your answer is "Yes" to any of these questions posed, then read the Living your Strengths, Discover your God-Given Talents and Inspire Your Community and take the Clifton StrengthFinder assessment. When you get the immediate results, review the book, you'll come away with a personal understanding of inate talents that make you -YOU. The focus of the book is to position oneself in areas of strengths, rather than try to always correct one's weaknesses. I find that the parish in which I belong is forward thinking in engaging the community members to position leadership or volunteer opportunities tothose with these inate talents, and if everything goes according to plan, will lead to more fulfillment on the part of volunteer and committment to a service that benefits from ones special talents. Don't forget the college students that are trying to discern their major. Having a better understanding of the top strengths will lead to more satisfaction in career choices, since the insight provided will be one one reflecting the student's strengths, rather than produce a degree that disconnects from where the true happiness and pursuit of a career may be better aligned. So parents, praise the good grades, and focus on the career path that the student excels in, rather than trying to make the student that may be holding a square peg fit into a round hole.
