Finding your Identity with Personality Quizzes
Personality quizzes can help you to see yourself in a different light. Answering some questions about how you react to certain things, make decisions, why you do things and how well you answer different questions can provide insight.

We need to really examine what the Bible says about us as a framework to refer to throughout our life. We can easily get caught up in what media and cultural norms tells us, but really we need the Truth, we need God’s Word.
There are things that are true, but not the Truth about you because they change. For example, your age, your marital status and your job. You may be 35 year old, married women, mother of a 2 year old child, works for GEICO and enjoys yoga, which could be true, but will it be true next year?

~ 1 John 2:15-16
We have a tendency to focus on temporary things that are not important in the grand scheme. It is extremely easy to get caught up with social media, what we look like, what other people think, our bank account, getting the car, getting the house and the list goes on. We start focusing on things that can be gone in an instant! Houses, reputations, looks, money can be gone in one tragic accident.
