This Bookshelf Single is a written transcript of the original audio talk.At some time in our lives, many of us wonder if we are really good at anything. In this inspiring presentation, gifted teacher Michael Wilcox helps us recognize the wonder and power in each of us. With personal stories and fresh perspectives about scriptural accounts, he explains that, while we may see our weakness and failings, God always sees our potential. Brother Wilcox teaches that God puts things in our lives that help prepare us for future challenges. He bears witness that we all have spiritual gifts to give each other — and to the Church — even though we don’t always recognize it. Stories about a report card, about the importance of nicknames, of “mite moments,” and of “the Jonathan factor” provide “aha moments,” helping us see ourselves and others as God sees us.
This was a positive and refreshing talk. S. Michael Wilcox has a gift for teaching. He is a master story teller as well as relating scriptures to my every day life.
In this talk he reminded me of the gifts God had given us all and how important it is to not compare ourselves to others. He also reminded me that I am created in the image of God -- not just physically - but also spiritually.
This is one CD I will listen to more than once.
