Living Your Strengths

When much has been given to people, much will be required of them. More will be asked of those to whom more has been entrusted.Luke 12:48

While millions of people in the U.S. are actively involved in a religious organization, many people feel disengaged from their faith communities. More than half report that they really don't get the opportunity to do what they do best. At St. Simon, we encourage our parishioners to identify their strengths and put them to use in support of our parish mission. The following resources are available to help with the discovery process:

Living Your Strengths Book

Living Your Strengths: Discover Your God-Given Talents and Inspire Your Community
by Albert L. Winseman, Donald O. Clifton, and Curtis Liesveld

We recommend this book because it shows readers how to use their innate gifts to enrich their faith communities. The book 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 callings. The book includes an ID code that gives readers access to StrengthsFinder.com, a personality assessment that reveals the user's top five talents.

We have trained parishioners who are available to help you understand how your personal strengths can lead to satisfaction in ministry to our parish community.  If you would like more information, please contact Sr. Rebecca at rebecca@stsimon.org, or call 650-967-8311 ext 13.
