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.

I can't believe I let myself get a library fine over this book. It was so promising!
This book DOES NOT tell you what your strengths are. It only tells you how to best apply them.
To figure out what your strengths are you have to take an online assesment but the code in the back of the book is 1-time use only. The library won't buy more codes because you have to buy a whole new copy of the book (at no discount) and that's way too expensive. So, whoever got this book first was really lucky; the rest of us, no so much.
