One of the nation’s most comprehensive Christian news websites, The Christian Post, released a list of 10 notable Christian figures who died in 2020. The list included 8 men and 2 women—one of whom was Florence Littauer.
According to the article, “Littauer is regarded as a pioneer in women’s ministry, as she was a popular speaker at Christian ministry events during the 1970s, at a time when men dominated the speaking circuit.” In the tribute to Florence, it cited best-selling author, John Maxwell was quoted using accolades such as “true legend” and “a trailblazer” to describe Florence’s contribution toChristianity. He credited her with opening “the door for thousands of women to develop their leadership and communication skills.”
In addition to her accomplishments as a prolific speaker and writer, Florence founded a training program for Christian speakers and leaders. Over a period of more than 35 years, her CLASSeminar trained thousands of men and women in leadership, speaking and writing. Ministries too numerous to count were launched and hundreds of books were published as a direct result of her efforts.
While Littauer made a dramatic impact on the world of Christian ministry, the public knew her best as a “Bestselling Christian self-help author and speaker” with more than 40 books to her credit. Her most popular, Personality Plus, sold millions of copies and was translated into more than 25 languages. She popularized the concepts known as The Personalities and made the terms Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholy and Phlegmatic part of the vernacular—especially in the Christian community.
In part, to honor her legacy and to advance her contribution ThePersonalities.com website was launched in 2020 just weeks before her death on July 11, 2020. The “Free Resources” section of the website offers two of her classic speeches and the video of her “Send-Off Party.”
