Understanding Yourself

We all know that we are called to love God and love others.  But what is your special and unique purpose in life?  What is the distinct contribution God wants YOU to make to this world?  This is one of the most challenging and important questions we can ask in life.  Our level of self-awareness about our strengths, weaknesses, giftings, and personalities helps us to successfully relate to and influence others.  In this month’s issue of The Learning Leader we explore ways of deepening your understanding of yourself and the unique purposes that God has for you.  You’ll even hear personal stories from some of our senior YWAM elders about their purposes and how they have uncovered it.  Enjoy the discovery process!

Make sure to also check out the ALLC’s recommended leadership resources of the month, as well as the upcoming leadership schools, trainings and events both online and throughout Asia.
