  1. Hi Buky! This List! Following such a list will definitely lead us into a well balanced life. You’ve covered many bases already and as you’ve invited us to add some our own core values, I have one that I’ve recently started doing: I make knowing God a life-long goal. And since we are eternal spirits, I’ll spend eternity working on this goal. He is worthy and will never disappoint!

    • The pillar and foundation of our faith is the ability to stay on course, keep learning, adjusting to the twists and turns of life. I couldn’t agree more. Thanks for your contribuition.
