  • The Temperament God Gave You
  • A life-changing, eye-opening read
  • Learn to have patience with yourself and others
  • Discover what a temperament is (and which one you have!)

All of us are born with distinct personality traits. Some of us live for crowds and parties; others seek solitude and time for quiet reflection. Some of us are naturally pushy, while others are content just to get along. We don’t pick and choose these traits; they’re just part of the way we’re made.

For in the womb God doesn’t merely mold our body; He also gives us the temperament that, all our days, colors our understanding, guides our choices, and serves as the foundation of our moral and spiritual life.

Ancient philosophers identified four basic temperaments, and over the centuries, countless wise souls have used these four to understand human nature. Now comes The Temperament God Gave You, the first Catholic book on the subject in 70 years. Here veteran Catholic counselor Art Bennett and his wife Laraine provide an accessible synthesis of classical wisdom, modern counseling science, and Catholic spirituality: a rich understanding of the temperaments and what they mean for you and for your family.

Drawing on decades of study, prayer, and practical experience, Art and Laraine show you how to identify your own temperament and use it to become what God is calling you to be: a loving spouse, an effective parent, and a good friend. Best of all, they give you a Catholic understanding of the four temperaments that will bring you closer to God and help you discover the path to holiness that’s right for you.

Peace. Happiness. Holiness.

You’ll find yourself growing in each of these qualities as you come to understand — and learn to use as you should — the temperament God gave you.

    The Temperament God Gave You

    I only wish I could have read about these four temperaments years ago. This book sheds so much light on why we react and view the world the way we do. The authors address both the positive and negative traits of each temperament and how we can, as Christians, work to better our own lives and those around us who view and react differently from each other. I highly recommend this book, especially for spouses and parents.

    The Temperament God Gave You

    Still reading this book so far it is interesting to read why we behave or act like we do. How to understand others temperament and your own helps one to possibly get along with one another. I do recommend this book if you having a tough time with getting along with others or just trying to figure out why they act the way they do.
