Personal Values

Home / Personal Values

It is not what a man does that is of final importance, but what he is in what he does. The atmosphere produced by a man, much more than his activities, has the lasting influence.

 ... Oswald Chambers

Values are like gravity and the north pole - they are the constant attraction in a desired direction.  Along the journey, we can hear God's voice and follow that lead, but values are the constant guiding voice of our lives.

Personal Values – To succeed apart from these values is to fail


  • People come first
  • Our ability to care and relate to people is the foundation for all activity


  • Enthusiasm, passion, focus and joy are the contagious attributes of wholeheartedness

Integrity & Excellence

  • Unwavering personal integrity, ethical character and practices, clear articulation and accurate representation of abilities and accomplishments are the essential ingredients of excellence and integrity


  • Who we are speaks louder than what we say, therefore for our words to have authority and influence, they must be congruent with our lifestyle
  • Being genuine and authentic, being true to oneself, owning one’s stuff

Be Positive

  • Believe the best of others to bring out the best in others
  • Find a way, not an excuse

  • Deep, natural, steady joy is the byproduct of a life consecrated to Jesus.

  • The joy of honoring others by sharing your home and life’s blessings


  • Healthy and caring people are generous in heart, lifestyle and resources and inspire others to embrace these values


  • Intimacy and friendship with God is my deepest passion. It focuses all other values and is the wellspring for all sacred and secular activities.
