Finding Your Fit: How God Has Uniquely Made You

Teacher: Mark Medley

Grade Level: 9 to 12

Star Rating Level: 4

Fees: $10 - Cost for printing materials

"Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful..." 1 Cor. 12:7 (Message) Finding your FIT We have all heard of the concept of "a square peg in a round hole." Too often this is a description of where people find themselves in regard to ministry in the church and God's Kingdom as well as in regard to their vocation. Armed with the understanding that God has uniquely SHAPED each person for a specific purpose, our challenge is to understand His design and match ministry and vocation to how He has sovereignly SHAPED us. We have been wonderfully helped in this process by the following: S.H.A.P.E. is taken from "Discovering My Ministry" authored by Rick Warren, founder and senior pastor of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA. This tool helps us discover how our Spiritual Gifts, Heart Passion, Abilities, Personality and Experiences can open our eyes to God's purpose in our lives. The GiftQuest Romans 12 motivational gifts inventory is a tool developed by two former pastors of Trinity, Len Sisson and Russ Porcella. It has been used all over the world to help Christians understand where they finin the Body of Christ. We were helped in describing the 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4:11 gifts by studies provided by our late friend, Jim Murphy's materials from Hundredfold Ministries, San Diego, CA. The DISC Behavior Survey, adapted from In His Grace, Inc., Houston, TX, and The Institute for Motivational Learning, Inc., New Castle, Pennsylvania Additionally, we have added "D" (Divine Intervention) to SHAPE in order to describe the way God will sometimes grant us a special grace to be used in a manner that is completely outside of our typical SHAPE. While this is the exception rather than the norm, we believe it is important for individuals not to restrict themselves inappropriately to ministry that only fits their SHAPE.

Reasoning and Writing

Teacher: Margaret England

Grade Level: 3 to 5

Star Rating Level: 3

Fees: none

I have used Reasoning and Writing many times throughout my years as an educator to teach children writing and grammar skills. It can be used with a wide age range of children and struggling as well as gifted learners. Reasoning and Writing introduces higher-order thinking skills as the foundation for writing skills. At the earliest levels, lessons build around vibrant stories, giving students an awareness of logical connections and narrative structures. Students learn to organize their thoughts into words, first through oral activities such as storytelling and readers' theater, and later, on paper. By Level C, students are fully involved in the writing process and are developing consistent procedures for writing, editing, and revising their work. They learn to express their thoughts in a clear and consistent manner. They are shown how to critique their work as a reader would, thus eliminating possible sources of confusion. Reasoning and Writing combines instruction in writing with a strong skills orientation. From lesson to lesson, work on skills is integrated with writing. Students learn that spelling, punctuation, and grammar are essential to effective communication.
