Highschool Strengths Class!







Are you wondering what those words above mean?  They are the #1 strength themes from our latest highschool strengths class.  The definitions are powerful keys to unlocking their future goals.
Truly, there is nothing that gets this gals blood pumping faster than when you start me talking about Strengths-based living!   You see, it's not about us but all about HIM!  

You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
   Every moment was laid out
      before a single day had passed. ~ Psalm 139:16

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. ~ Ephesians 2:10

For I know the plans I have for you.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a FUTURE! ~ Jeremiah 29:11

The truth is the Lord has a very personal plan for each of our lives and when we get caught up in striving to become like those we admire we miss out on our own calling.  As we worked through each of the students strengths I was blown away by their ability to share their feelings and emotions and how those line up with the Word of God.  
Thank you Lynn Doto for hosting us!  

IMPORTANT:  If you live locally and would like to learn more about discovering your strengths, passions and purpose my friend Kim Coley and I will be speaking at the January Pinellas Parent Educators Association monthly support group meeting.  I will share their advertisement for full details:
Are You A Betty Boehmian Or Olive Organized..... 5 Years Later! 

Veteran homeschool moms, Mary Arnold and Kim Coley, have set aside a fun-filled evening to remember!  
Make your plans now to attend as it's sure to be one of those experiences you will never forget.  
Come discover YOUR personality AND Your CHILDREN’S personalities.  See how they can ‘mesh’ and how to improve your home school as a result.  
Mary and Kim launched this talk right here at one of our monthly PPEA meetings five years ago, and then went on to travel to other support groups, and finally the FPEA Convention leaders forum!  
You will be so encouraged as they help each of us discover and embrace who God made us, our husband's, our children, and even our friends to be. Be prepared to laugh and cry as the Lord fills your cup with his truth and encouragement. 
Betty and Olive five years later is going to recap the Betty/Olive roles while tying in Strengths Finder 2.0.  They are going to share tips to help you get the most out of working with your children and all those important people in our lives.  You are going to walk away prepared to finish your school year STRONG!  
This is an RSVP event as we will have handouts and one lucky participant will win their very own Strength Finder 2.0 assessment!   
Come and start the year off with a relaxing, lighthearted giggle as you discover YOU!
