Publisher's Description

Written to help readers get, find, and keep the work they love, JESUS, Career Counselor weaves
together practical self-help concepts, intriguing stories, relevant statistics, and Bible scriptures.
Divided into four sections centered on the four natural giftings or personalities of people, this book
explores twelve dreams that God has for each individual--including rise, risk, roar, renew, regenerate,
rejoice, relate, and more. It then instructs readers in how to realize each one of these dreams, no
matter their natural inclination.

As individual personalities of Fire, Earth, Water, and Wind are explored, the book explains how
the Fire of excitement translates to Leadership Skills, how the Earth of grounding translates into
Good Habits and Character Development, how the Water of life-giving becomes Relationship Skills,
and how the Wind of release becomes the Creativity and Innovation, which are in high demand in
every industry in the world today.

Readers will learn how to discover their four greatest talents and create their personal Talent Shield,
which will help them choose a meaningful career based on their Life’s Mission Statement.

Each chapter serves as a free-standing career guidepost, and includes Career Exercises, pertinent
Word Definitions, Career Choices for individual gifting, Self-Quizzes, and Reader Study Guides.

Publisher's Weekly

She taught readers how to be Christians in business. Now Jones, business consultant and author of the bestselling Jesus CEO, is helping readers find their ideal careers. Jones encourages readers to cultivate a vocation in which they can naturally and joyfully be fruitful. Each of the book’s chapters describes one of 12 dreams the Holy Spirit has for humans: to renew, revive, risk, etc. This framework doesn’t offer a step-by-step process for job hunters; instead, it exposes the big questions anyone should face before making career decisions. No beach reading here: readers will work through auxiliary activities and apply ideas through reflection and action. Employing biblical examples and her own experiences, Jones coaches readers, directing them to decipher what “bubbles up inside” and can be “poured into the world from your soul while you’re working.” Recognizing the complexities of career hunting, she also offers practical advice, résumé-writing techniques, and categorical prayers. For the many who are out of work or for those who just need a change, Jones’s wisdom may stir them to view work in a new light. (May) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    This book was interesting and easy to read. However, I can hardly recommend it as a Christian work. It is laced with references to Jesus and scripture, but I agree with Carolyn, it is very man-centered and promotes a lot of new age concepts. I bought this for our church library, but will be returning it instead.

    Exploring the 12 dreams God has for each of us, this book shows readers how to get, find and keep the work they love."Laurie Beth Jones presents a very creative way of assessing personality types, fire, water, earth and wind. She also has created a perfect roadmap to discovering our mission, identifying our communication styles, creating a vision for our lives that brings us joy and contributes to the needs of the world, and then building a career path on that foundation. Her book is easy to read, embraces all types of work, and teaches us how to find our meaningful work. This book comes at a perfect time, as so many people are out of a job. Jones challenges us as readers to not just move on to the next job because it's what we've always done, but instead to seek what it is we are called to do. All the rest is drama and illusion, entertainment, training exercises, and moments preparing me for eternity. That is a perspective that leads one to be able to change more easily and it's certainly upbeat and encouraging.This book was sent to me free for review from FSB Associates.

    I really liked the book. Her approach is definitely 'out of the box' and presents a very creative and insightful way of assessing personality types, i.e., fire, water, earth and wind. Although she matches Scripture with her illustrations it makes for more of a motivational man-centered work than a God-centered approach.Example: "My God is able to keep me safe because at my true core I am a spirit that is eternal, indestructible, perpetual. All the rest is drama and illusion, entertainment, training exercises, and coachable moments preparing me for eternity. That is a perspective that leads one to be able to regenerate more easily. ...the need to seek answers and truth beyond our own means is truly the opening Christ needs." (pg.171)Makes one wonder: Who's serving who? A man-centered approach to 'Christian' living. Sounds a lot like a Joyce Meyer script and some people really like that - it's certainly upbeat and encouraging.
