One of them has “administrator” as his primary gifting, with “server” as his secondary one.
And my other son is a compassionate giver.

I am, of course, less cut and dried. I seem to have a mixed gifting bag; some administration, a lot of serving, and a good dose of giving. I'm probably not an exhorter (encourager) nor did compassion stand out as a trait I overflow with. Apparently, what I most definitely am not is a teacher or a perceiver.

Clint, Max and I have spent the last two evenings (Sat and Sun nights, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm) at a Motivational Gifts Seminar.

I said that real casual like, but, oh man… it was incredible experiencing that with my boys. Pride pulsed through my veins as we walked in together.

If you ever get a chance to take this seminar with Walter Loewen or Ed Goertzen, do it. They are amazing men. And the material they teach is life-changing. It helps you understand & accept who you are and it explains why you do the things you do.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. I live in one of the few parts of the world where I am not persecuted for my faith.
2. All the laundry got done this weekend.
3. Modern medicine

In whatever test I take it usually ends up the same, Faith is a strong gift, but even stronger is exhorter. Charles Stanley explained it well, an exhorter is one who can take their personal experience and break it down in a creative way to help someone else understand a spiritual truth.
