    162 Living A Value Based Life

    162 Living A Value Based Life

    We know the type of life we want to live, but for many of us, it feels out of reach.
    There are so many things we have to do to survive and so many people who need us…is there any choice but to just get by?
    What we often can’t see is that, under the surface, we are being pulled into others’ expectations, the values of the culture around us and lies about how we need to look, what we need to achieve and what we need to acquire to be happy.
    These things pull us away from our own values and drain our time, energy and resources – and it’s so subtle, that we think this is just the reality of life…the way things we have to be.
    But you have the power to choose the life you want and to live a values-first life.
    Listen in as we share practicals to help you live a life that is in line with your values.
    When we live in line with our values and who God made us to be, somehow God multiplies our time, energy and resources, and we find we get even more than we can imagine in return.
