Where are your strengths? What can you work on? This quiz can help you find out!
Just like Jesus Christ invited Peter and Andrew to follow Him (see Matthew 4:19; Mark 1:17), He invites each of us to follow Him. We follow Christ when we follow His example and strive to become like Him. Learn of Him and seek to incorporate His attributes into your life. Through the power of His Atonement, you can achieve your goals.
Read each statement and decide how true that statement is about you. Choose the best answer from the response key. Write your responses in your study journal. Or you can download the PDF of the quiz.
Spiritual growth is a gradual process, and no one is perfect, so you should expect to rate yourself better on some attributes than on others. As you complete the quiz, identify the attribute you most need or want to develop. You can study the section about that attribute in Preach My Gospel and set goals for developing it.
