You are a woman with infinite worth. My friend, Alicia Britt Chole says: “No one is “just” anything. All are personally saturated with God’s custom fingerprints and designed to reflect {her} Creator in glorious ways.”

Learning how God created you can be the first step to seeing God’s fingerprints and design on your life.


Being a Christ-follower requires you and me to be influencers for Jesus. As equipHER Women it is imperative that we know our strengths and have the confidence to walk in the sweet spot of our gifts, talents, and abilities. Thomas Mann said: “No one remains quite what he was when he recognizes himself.” When we are convinced we are the reflection of God, others will see Jesus and follow Him.

The most effective tool I have found for knowing your unique design is Strengthsfinder. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses, Strengthsfinder focuses on your God-given strengths – what you do best. In the book Strengthsfinder 2.0 that you will be reading this month, you will find the philosophy of strengths-based leadership, a description of each of the 34 strengths (or themes), coaching for each, and a code inside the back cover for the purchaser to take the online assessment, which will reveal your top 5 strengths.

There are several other books to choose from, depending on your vocation if you are interested in broadening your strengths knowledge.

  • Strengthsfinder 2.0, for everyone
  • Strength-Based Leadership, for leaders and managers
  • Teach with your Strengths, for educators
  • Strengths-Based Selling, for the sales force
  • Living your Strengths, designed for any faith-based organizations
  • Entrepreneurial Strengthsfinder, for entrepreneurs
  • StrengthsExplorer, for ages 10-14

In my coaching of women, students, and leadership development training, Strengthsfinder has been the most validating and purpose driven tool I have found for knowing how God created you. Dig in. God has something BIG waiting for you this month!
