Eighty percent of our conversations are spent discussing other people and their habits.1 That’s a fancy way of saying “We gossip . . . a lot!” Have you been hurt by careless words in a messy friendship? You’re not alone in your hurt, but you could be the sole source of change for your friendship circle.
Today, we’ll get real about gossip. We’ll share the hurts we’ve experienced, lessons we’ve learned, and even one girl’s testimony of her struggle and the freedom she found. See the key components to healthy friendship by watching this episode of True You now:
If you’ve been struggling with your friendships, here’s a passage of Scripture that could help you in your freedom journey: James 3:1–12
We’d love to hear from you! Send us your freedom story—that’s what we call it when God sets you free through His Truth found in the Bible. Post your one-minute video on social media, and tag @liesyoungwomenbelieve or upload it here. It could be selected to be featured on a future episode of True You!
