Adaptability … Empathy … Connectedness … Developer … Activator …
What exactly does that tell you about me? Well, for one, it may indicate to you that one of the things I do here at Saint Benedict Parish is “Living Your Strengths”, which is a program that helps people discover their God-given talents. Those five words are talents that God gave me, and I’m working on developing into strengths! If you’re interested in finding out more about what your God-given talents are, fire me an email!
Besides running the LYS program, you may find me up at the Welcome Booth, or working away on something for Stewardship. And if you can’t find me, it’s likely that I’m in the Tim Horton’s drive through! Double Double. Hint hint.
