Imagine you needed to hang a picture on the wall and the only tool you had in your toolbox was a saw. It would be difficult to measure the right spot for the nail, frustrating to hammer and nearly impossible to make the picture level. What if, however, your toolbox had a tape measure, hammer and level. You would be able to hang the picture with ease! Too often, many Christians go through life trying to “hammer with a saw.”
This page is designed to be a resource to help you identify your God given spiritual gifts.

We are like “tools” in God’s toolbox–each one with a unique purpose, each one important and each one necessary for a complete toolbox.
