A Guide to Love, God, Prayer, Meditation, & Peace Within You—Right Now
Val Padley

After spending a lifetime in Texas and raising three children, I moved to Asheville, North Carolina in May of 2011. I now have a beautiful home in the Blue Ridge Mountains and work for a local nonprofit organization. It is my great joy to also provide administrative support for the Voice for Love website, and I was recently inspired to create a line of "Extending Love to Your Thoughts Daily Practice Cards" which I am developing with my spiritual partner, Eva Lisle.

Going through the Voice for Love program in 2009-10 was like attending college for my soul and graduating with a BA in Love! I will never again question or doubt God's perfect, whole and constant love for us all. This simple but profound paradigm shift (that we are being loved in every moment and have nothing to fear) brought me out of a longstanding depression and healed me. My life is forever changed, and I am grateful.
