80 percent of our conversations are spent on discussing other people and their habits. That could be a fancy way of saying “we gossip . . .  a lot!” Have you been hurt by 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, the lessons we’ve learned, and even one girl’s testimony of her struggle with gossip and the freedom she found in God's Truth. Discover the key components to healthy friendship and how to stop the gossip that often plagues them by watching this episode of True You now:

If you've been struggling with your friendships, here are some great verses that could help you in your freedom journey. We challenge you to memorize these passages!

  • James 3:1-12
  • Ephesians 4:29
  • Proverbs 16:28


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.
