{When To Tell The Truth}

Does your mouth ever get you in trouble?  Are you puzzled as to why some of your relationships are on the rocks or non-existent?  Are you one to “speak your mind”?

If so, you may justify your actions by saying, “I was only telling the truth.”  Telling the truth is good, but telling it all the time without discretion is not.  I once heard someone say, “Always tell the truth, but don’t always be telling it.”  It takes wisdom and self-control to know when to keep your mouth shut.  I can attest that it is not always easy, but the wise King Solomon states over and over in the book of Proverbs how it is the fool who is always talking, but the wise man who can overlook an insult.

Do you use your words to destroy or build?  Encourage or discourage?  If you have relationships that need mended check your words.  Do you need to give more grace?  After all, you do reap what you sow.   And speaking for myself I sure can use grace.

So, keep speaking the truth, but learn when it’s time to keep that truth to yourself.  You will be doing you and all your relationships a favor.

Women’s Life Summit

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Would you go back to school? Lose weight and make healthy lifestyle changes? Start a nonprofit organization? Improve your spending habits or get out of debt? Form a new habit or overcome an addiction? Turn your hobby into a career?

We’d like to invite you to The Women’s Life Summit on March 26 at the FireEscape Coffeehouse in Chanute, Kansas from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. You can RSVP by going to Women’s Life Summit on Facebook. This event will focus on identifying your life’s purpose and the ways to turn your dreams into a reality. We plan to “get real” with you on topics that most women rarely talk about, like confidence and self-image issues, pressures from society to be perfect, feeling overwhelmed as a parent, and addressing, head-on, that infamous feeling that you’re just not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough.

Let’s face it. As women, we’re in this together, but rarely are we transparent enough with the people who may be able to help us the most, people who have been where we are and have felt the same things we feel – other women.

You’ll be empowered, encouraged and get a chance to connect with other women facing the same challenges that you are.

If you’re feeling lost in your purpose, alone, or just need to renew your passion we hope you’ll join us.
