31 Days in My [Insert Label Here] Skin:
M Y L A B E L S
I am a Woman. A Mom. A Wife. A Friend. A Daughter. An In-Law. A Sister.
According to StrengthsFinder, I am Responsible, a Developer, a Learner, “instinctively intrigued by the unique qualities of each person,” and someone who “likes exercising the muscles of my brain” (aka “intellection”).
According to the Spiritual Gifts Survey, I have the gifts of Faith, Teacher, Pastor, Leadership, and Exhortation.
My primary love language is Words of Affirmation. Acts of Service is #2.
I am Imperfect, yet Doing My Best. Challenged and Wounded, yet Victorious and Healed. Fearful, yet Bold. I am Introverted, yet Outgoing. A Lover of People, Big Dogs, Naps, Backrubs, and the Great Outdoors.
I am Old School. Passionate. Creative. Adventurous. Determined. A Verbal Processor.
I’ve been told I am Industrious. An Encourager. Transparent. A Life-Giver. Wise. A “Joy to be Around.” Funky. Feisty. A Leader. A Good Friend. “My People.”
I’ve also been told some things I would like to forget.
Mostly, this is what I know about myself:
I am Flawed.
I am Changing.
I am Growing.
I am Loved.
Desperate for more of God in my life.
I am God’s Daughter.
And Treasured despite it all.
