Blogging and God-given gifts

I mentioned before that I do volunteer work at the church helping people to discover their passion, God-given gifts and their personal style. It is SOOO awesome when you see how people get that they were created exactly as God would have them be!

Anyway, because I have such a keen interest in personalities and whatnot, I've been thinking about how people's God-given gifts affect their blogging style. And trying to guess their gifts from their blogs (of course, only if I think I have a "handle" on them).

I keep meaning to post my thoughts but I forget! And then when JennaG posted this, I remembered again and thought I have to do it before I forget again!!!

CoachJ and I have discussed this via email because she definitely has a prophecy and a teaching gift!

And then Annie gave me a Nice Matters award - isn't that sweet of her? Now Annie is an encourager and a giver through and through!

I'm giving this award to the first 3 bloggers I think of! And while I'm at it, I'll tell you what I think their motivational gifts (Romans 12) are:

  1. Barb (who I think has hospitality and giving)

  2. Lorie (who definitely has encouragement & mercy)

  3. Bridget (also gift of encouragement)


This is my opinion only. I haven't done a proper assessment with them so it's just from glimpses at their blogs!

Do you feel like guessing what my motivational gifts are?

How very nice of you, Marcia. Thank you very much for thinking of me. And that disclaimer cracks me up. LOL

Hey marcia, I think I could do a blog on just personality and gifting talk--I love it so much! Wouldn't you say that most people with the gift of prophecy are choleric? Just wondering...

Great assessment Marcia. I think Barb is very hospitable!
I am so not good at determining gifts. You will have to just tell me. I could guess several areas for you.

Lorie said...

Thanks Marcia. I have been gien this award three times now! I guess I am just too nice to everyone lol! I think you are pretty acurate, but I would add teaching on there. That is definately one of my gifts!

So okay, here is mine, not really what I thought,
Here is mine
The Perceiver: 70%
The Server: 70%
The Teacher: 50%
The Encourager: 65%
The Giver: 80%
The Ruler: 40%
Showing Mercy: 52%
Seems like so close numbers?
