“Being authentic with everyone begins with truth in all things, especially the little things. Guard yourself from making small compromises in your integrity. Small cracks are what lead to a big breakdown.”
Do we turn to God to ask for help in living lives of integrity and authenticity?

Becky, thank you so much for sharing this quote. WOW. It really struck a chord with me. I’ve been on a journey since October learning how to be honest with myself and those around me, and learning about integrity and authenticity. This is such a great reminder of how letting even little things slide can add up into one big avalanche of internal corruption you don’t know how to stop. What a beautiful challenge of turning to God to help us be people of integrity and authenticity.
