The Introvert Thing Again

Oh! Absolutely, positively loved this: Caring For Your Introvert.

Thank-you, Kim, for sending it to me!

Really, my happiness has increased exponentially since understanding and accepting my Grade A introverted self instead of always attempting to fix it. :)

“Introverted seekers need introverted evangelists. It's not that extroverts can't communicate the gospel, either verbally or nonverbally, in ways that introverts find appealing, it's that introverted seekers need to know and see that it's possible to lead the Christian life as themselves. It's imperative for them to understand that becoming a Christian is not tantamount with becoming an extrovert.” ― Adam S. McHughIntroverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture

Our FATHER loves diversity in personality...no doubt about that!! We are happiest when we are doing all we can to follow HIM, but in the ways HE made us to do so!!
