Click Here: Vol. 4

  • This week I took an online version of the Myers-Briggs personality test. I’m an INTJ (introverted/intuitive/thinking/judging). It was especially interesting to me because in the month of April my husband preached on spiritual giftedness and our Sunday school lessons have also been on the topic. It’s helpful to know yourself, so you can work through your strengths and build up your weak here

“I look at young girls who came to us more desperate than you can imagine, alone and terrified. I’ve watched them transform, one brave, shaky step at a time. They have worked through their inner turmoil, fallen in love with a child they didn’t want, learned skills that will provide for their futures.”

“However despite my gaps in knowledge I am qualified to teach my children.

More so than anyone else, in fact.

Because what qualifies me to teach is not the sum of facts in my head.

What qualifies me is how well I understand my children and how deeply I care about their learning.

In our family there are no cracks for these kids to fall through.”

  • I starting reading Bread & Wine by Shauna Nienquist (affiliate link) and don’t want to put it down. I did put it down for a little while and headed to the Amish market for goat cheese, but as soon as I shut down my computer, I’ll pick it up again.

“Learn, little by little, meal by meal, to feed yourself and the people you love, because food is one of the ways we love each other, and the table is one of the most sacred places we gather.”

Have a great weekend!

  1. Sandra, I just discovered your blog looking around at different resources. Wow you truly are making a difference! I enjoyed reading a few of your posts about autism as I have a son with autism too. And I love your idea of One Verse vs. One Word. Truly inspiring!

    • Nice to “meet” you Kim! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Every few years I like to retake the Meyers Briggs to see if anything changes. I was long an ENFJ, but now it’s moved over to the ESFJ. I thought my extroverted v. introverted sides would be more at odds but it seems my E side will always prevail. 🙂 I appreciated part of the description of people that are ESFJ – we see things in black & white but we abhor conflict, so this puts us in constant mental turmoil. Ha ha. It sounds dramatic but I guess I’d have to agree with that. Also, Rachel McAdams is ESFJ (good) and so is Rabbit from the Pooh stories (darn). 😉

    • Funny! I didn’t know you had such a strong extrovert side, since I know you as a writer/reader/music lover/movie watcher and I usually associate those qualities with introverts. The black and white I totally get though!
