At two points during my journey through Bethel seminary we were given a couple of personality assessments and then had the opportunity to sit with a coach or counselor (depending on the assessment) and talk about the outcomes. Each time, I either learned something new about myself or how together understand why I do things a certain way.
About half way through we also had some classes on pastoral care, in which we applied different learning a on ourselves first…after all, we all have baggage, no sense in bring our baggage when we are trying to help someone else with theirs.
Currently I am in another time of life when I have the opportunity to learn about myself. Knowing that all the other opportunities have been helpful, I’m enjoying this time as wel…even though some learning can be difficult.
So, what are you doing to better understand who God made you to be?
