Who knew strengths ran in the family? To continue our series on female role models during Women’s History Month, we caught up with Kristin Moore, team member of The Strengths Journal, who told us about her incredible mom. Kristin and her mom share many things, even their CliftonStrengths. To learn more about the way Kristin’s mom has helped shape her strengths, check out her story below.
The Strongest Woman I Know
“The woman who has impacted my life most, hands down, is my mom, Meg Hinkley.
My mom teaches women’s self-defense at The Hockaday School in Dallas, facilitates women’s self-defense seminars that have literally saved lives through her business Athena’s Strategies, volunteers for Texas Search and Rescue (TEXSAR), has traveled overseas for mission trips, is a black belt in karate, certified personal trainer, and so much more.
Clearly, my mom is fierce! She is devoted to God, her family, countless friends, and her community with the humble mission of “love your neighbor.”
Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, she is the strongest woman I know.
Like Mother like Daughter
And because we all love CliftonStrengths around here, I am proud to share 8 of the same top 10 Strengths as my mom! They’re in a little different order, and I for sure don’t share her high (& amazing) Command or Competition, but I like to think the best parts of me are from her.
If you know my momma, I’d love for you to show her some love in the comments below! OR comment about your own mom in this post with 3 things you love about her (bonus points if you know her Strengths!)”
We love hearing about the women who have made an impact in your life! If you have a woman (mom, sister, boss, coworker, etc.) whose story you’d like to share with us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with us on social media!
