Review 1 for Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You
Date:April 2, 2009
Bonnie Grove says if you're good at something, take it and run with it. Don't waste energy worrying about your weaknesses. Instead use your gifts, passions, talents and strengths to enjoy life and accomplish the character changes you desire. Bonnie--a Canadian pastor's wife in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan--spent years as a developer of lifestyle-change programs, and now leads interactive self-help workshops and seminars.Her book Your Best You features a strength-based approach to problem-solving in one's life. It teaches readers to combine their true strengths with their truegoals in creating a map to navigate the road toward desired changes. Topicsinclude: finding your strengths, breaking free of addictions, prioritizing life goals, the importance of social support, and maintaining desired changes in one's life. All this is presented from a Christian point of view but written in such a way that it's also accessible and helpful to a wider readership.Numerous workbook-type pages help the reader personally apply the book's teachings. The text is broken up with inspiring quotations from personalities as diverse as Mother Teresa, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Victor Borge. The cover shows a woman wearing a pink, black and white dress. She's trying to decide what shoes to wear with it; in other words, how to play to the strengths of that dress. Obviously the red shoes won't do it. Neither will the yellow. The black ones are just right. Similarly Grove hopes her book will help readers find "just right" solutions to help them live more complete and fulfilling, less anxious lives.
