RevGals Friday: Gifts and Talents – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jun 292007
 

Gifts and talents is the theme of todays Friday 5.

1. Personality tests; love them or hate them?

I’m ambivalent about them. Some of are good, some are not. For the record on the Myers Briggs, I am an INFP, and I am a 4 on the Ennegram.

2. Would you describe yourself as practical, creative, intellectual or a mixture ?

I am a creative intellectual. Practical? What’s that?

3. It is said that everyone has their 15 minutes of fame; have you had yours yet? If so what was it, if not dream away what would you like it to be?

No, I haven’t had it. I would like it to be a bestselling book.

4. If you were given a 2 year sabatical ( oh the dream of it) to create something would it be music, literature, art…..something completely different…share your dream with us…

I’d definitely be writing, but I would want to be learning how to paint and do calligraphy as well. I’d love to write and illustrate a book.

5. Describe a talent you would like to develop, but that seems completely beyond you.

I don’t know if it’s beyond me because I haven’t devoted a lot of time to it. I would love to learn calligraphy.

Bonus question: Back to the church- what does every member ministry mean to you? Is it truly possible to encourage/ implement?

I believe every member has a ministry, and I think in small churches it is possible to encourage and implement members’ ministries. I also think at times our definition of ministry may need to be broadened.

  1. great play from another INFP!!! Enegram 4!!!

  2. Hey Shawna – I sent you an email, but I wasn’t sure whether to send it to shawna@magicbyshawna or shawna@shawnaatteberry.com. I sent it to the latter, but I’ve used “magicbyshawna” once before, too. I just had some questions on Nazarene weddings. 🙂

  3. great play! i am an enfp and i don’t remember the annagram thing for sure, i’m thinking a two but i really haven’t a clue!

    love your idea of illustrating and writing a book–let me know, i’ll look forward to ordering it when it comes out!

  4. Yay for NFPs! I’m ENFP, but very close to being INFP. For that matter, I’m also close to being ENFJ. But the N and F are solid as rocks. I gots to get me that enneagram test.
