I have arranged and asked some questions to help you think through your DESIGN:
1. Drives
What gets your heart beating fast? What really excites you?
What makes you cry? What breaks your heart?
What do you think is your passion? What burden do you have?
2. Experiences

What have been "defining moments" or spiritual markers along the way?
Who are your heroes?
What have been your high points? Your low points?
Have you experienced a "dark night of the soul"? Have you gone through the wilderness or brokenness? How?
3. Spiritual Gifts
What is your spiritual gift? Romans 12 lists 7 gifts.

How do you best connect with God?
4. Impact
What arena do you feel most compelled to impact? Politics, business, the church, economics or other?

If time, money or education were not an issue, what would you do?
5. Genius
