Publisher Summary

Have you ever tried to change something about yourself but had a hard time making it stick? If so, Bonnie Grove knows how you feel. The problem, she explains, is that when it comes to self improvement, most of us start by asking ourselves the wrong questions. Instead of, What are my weaknesses? How can I fix them? we should be asking, What are my strengths? How can I build on them?

This book is not a one-size-fits-all approach to lifestyle change. It doesn’t offer a ten-step formula or a one-minute prayer that guarantees success in 30 days. This book is about you. It’s about discovering and developing what you do well, what you love, and what brings you joy so you can see yourself the way God sees you and begin to truly receive His best for your life. Unlike some self-improvement books, you won’t be asked to:

  • spend time digging around in the past
  • put your problems under a microscope
  • try and fix everything that’s “broken” in your life
  • improve on things you’re not very good at

    Instead, Bonnie gives you tools and resources to help you:

  • discover what you’re good at—not what you
  • think you should be good at
  • develop your strengths and use them to offset your weaknesses
  • learn to recognize your true goals
  • create a personalized map to follow as you begin your journey to becoming Your Best You

    Author/Artist Review

    Author: Bonnie Grove
    Located in: Saskatoon, Canada
    Submitted: October 31, 2008

        Tell us a little about yourself.  I developed and wrote social programs for families at risk before landing my first publishing deal for Working Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You. My debut novel is Talking to the Dead (Summer, 2009, David. C. Cook). My husband, Steve, is a pastor. We have two young children; we live in Saskatchewan, Canada.

        What was your motivation behind this project?  After years researching and writing social programs, I came to understand big changes aren't really big at all. They are small changes that ripple through a life to create change. In addition, I discovered when people are taught to use their strengths in every area of their life, making a change can actually be enjoyable!

        What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A deeper connection with the God who created them and stuffed them full of good things (talents, abilities, aptitudes - in other words, strengths!) I hope people will connect with the best parts of themselves, and begin to live life authentically - Which means living the life you were intended to live, not the life other people think you should live.

        How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I discovered a confidence and a peace I've never experienced before. Because I've personally done every exercise in the book, I was able to map my own journey toward my true goals - and through that experience, God has led me to places I never dreamed for myself!

        Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Brennan Manning Rich Mullins Henri Nouwen Donald Miller My husband, Steve Grove Dr. Jim Horley (University of Alberta) The families who have allowed me to sit with them, talk with them, and learn from them.

        Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You is a true "how to" book. Rather than offering advice that may or may not work for you, this book walks you through the journey of your life, guiding you to ask and answer the questions that matter to you.
