The BrushFires Discover Your Divine Design Workbook is a perfect tool for an individual to discover their purpose, for a couple to develop understanding with their partner, for a group to build unity through the understanding of the unique God Given Design of every believer and for the church to mobilize the congregation into a cohesive Body of Christ. We believe that every Christian can benefit from a honest understanding of their strengths (Gifts and Abilities) and blind spots. The blind spots that are intended to be fulfilled by other members of The Body of Christ. We hope to nurture the idea that we all need to reach out to others to complete The Body of Christ. This can only be accomplished through a loving understanding of our differences. Unity is diversity with understanding. Read More...

The Y•M•I Assessments are based on the science of psychometrics. Developed and used for over 4 decades in the practice of Steven Johnson from Strategic People Development. Psychometrics is the study of the mind / soul / personality traits. The Y•M•I Assessments have been measured over the decades with the highest ratings of validity and reliability. They focus in how a person is wired by their Maker. Other personality assessments focus on behavior, which changes throughout a person's life. Most of those behavior based assessments tend to divide, where our program strives to unite. We look at every believer as a puzzle piece just waiting to find the ministry in which they fit best.
