Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You

Overview

Have you ever tried to change something about yourself but had a hard time making it sick? If so, Bonnie Grove knows how you feel. The problem, she explains, is that when it comes to self-improvement, most of us start by asking ourselves the wrong questions. Instead of, What are my weaknesses? How can I fix them? we should be asking, What are my strengths? How can I build on them?

    changing your life

    If you're good at something, take it and run with it. That's what Bonnie Grove says. Don't waste energy worrying about your weaknesses. Instead use your gifts, passions, talents and strengths to enjoy life and accomplish the character changes you desire. Bonnie--a pastor's wife in Saskatoon, Canada-came from a career as a developer of lifestyle-change programs, and now leads interactive self-help workshops and seminars.
    Her book Your Best You features a strength-based approach to problem-solving. It teaches readers to combine their true strengths with their true
    goals in creating a map to navigate the road toward desired changes. Topics in the book include: finding your strengths, breaking free of addictions, prioritizing life goals, the importance of social support, and maintaining desired changes in one's life. All this is presented from a Christian point of view but written in such a way that it's also accessible and helpful to a wider readership.
    Numerous workbook-type pages help the reader personally apply the book's teachings. The text is studded with inspiring quotations from personalities as diverse as Mother Teresa, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Victor Borge. The cover shows a woman wearing a pink, black and white dress. She's trying to decide what shoes to wear; in other words, how to play to the strengths of that dress. Obviously the red shoes won't do it. Neither will the yellow. The black ones are just right. Grove hopes her book will help readers find "just right" solutions to help them live more fulfilling, less anxious lives.
