The five V's of Discernment are:

Values: the way we do things

Vitality: where our energy comes from

Vocation: (Mission) What are we called to do

Vision: the big picture, what are our graces, talents and spiritual gifts. how do we use them for god

Voice: which voice is the loudest, what is god trying to say to us

Knowing our vocation and values brings clarity to our vision

Discerning the voice of God helps us to persevere with our vision when the voice of the enemy wants to bring discouragement.

( para phrase of an article by Rev Mark Williamson MET Magazine Winter 2019)
