Joel is a name that suggests you give up what you want so other people can have what they need. Like a six-sided cube, your personality is steady and balanced. You are very creative and artistically oriented but also willing to take action to accomplish your goals. Often you volunteer to work on civic projects and make your fair share of responsibility. Others seek your advice because you carefully listen to their problems.
Your heart’s desire is to settle conflicts and create harmony. Natural born peacemaker and a spiritual idealist are some of the words that describe you.
