My name is Ruth Ward and this is my joyful communication blog.
I write and counsel to offer guidelines for nurturing relationships with children, spouses, co-workers, neighbors and fellow believers. Thus, I specialize in honing communication skills. I endeavor to help a person discover their unique personality design–out of sixteen possibilities-- using the Myers Briggs Personality Indicator (MBTI). When we know who we are and attempt to understand others' innate design, then peaceful and satisfying communication is more likely.
Along with personal profiles I have developed blends of various temperaments which is a take home reference guide. This is always a fun activity for sweetening all levels of relationships
I've been writing for 34 years and counseling for over 60 years. Some of my books are currently on Amazon. The 'My Books' section of the site has links to check them out. So, if you have a communication concern for which you'd like workable guidelines, please let me know. I'll be sharing some examples as we go along.
Jim and I have been married for 62 years and have learned to blend our opposite preferences. We have four children, twelve grandchildren and thirteen great grands so these principles have given our family much joy. I look forward to learning from you.
