Bio Question 3: What Are Your Core Values?
Core values are what uncompromising principles that you live by. When you live your life from your core values, your life has greater peace, power, clarity, and purpose. My core values are:
I live foremost from my faith. The Bible is full of truth and wisdom, so I quote it a lot. Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
The truth was that I had accomplished all I had desired in my corporate career. It was no longer life-giving, but life-sucking! I don’t know where all of this writing will lead. So far, people and opportunities are flowing into my life as I listen attentively to what next step to take.
When you live from a place of truth, you are free.
When you tell the truth (with love), speak the truth, are truthful with yourself, you can face what you need to change or be at peace with decisions you make.
I want to have compassion for others, for all of God’s creation, and compassion for myself.
I love deep, meaningful relationships, especially having soul-centered discussions. Nothing thrills me more than when one of my readers writes to me and says, “When I receive your emails, it’s like you know exactly what encouragement I need at the time. It’s like you’re in my head!”

I used to think having joy meant being in a euphoric, blissful state. Truth be told : ), with that definition, I didn’t feel joy very often.
Joy for me is a feeling of deep peace, expansiveness, and contentment. I feel joy the most on Sunday. I take Sunday off and unplug from my computer. For some reason, my brain explodes with ideas to write about. Part of the reason for that is that I’ve given myself permission to just be.
On Sunday I am also usually out in nature. The mere reality of being-ness, being out in God’s creation with none of life’s demands clawing at me, helps me to feel a oneness and connection with God and all that is. That is a feeling of joy. Which is a great segue to the next big question.
