Take the Quiz!

Download and print the Image Inventory below. Place a mark on the sliding scale which best reflects your character or what is most important to you. Make sure that you do not mark on the line, but choose a side! There is no right or wrong answer. Though what is most important may vary based on the situation, mark what you reflect most often.


We reflect God’s “Moral” and “Relational” aspects in how we interpret and process events, actions, and words.
