Laura Have you found yourself taking part in gossip? Cristina shares a raw moment of when she gossiped and later asked for forgiveness. She says, “You are not going to fix other people’s problems by talking about them.” When someone says something negative about another person flip it around, change the subject or offer to pray about it. Laura and Cristina encourage you to stay clear of gossip, think before you speak and be mindful of what you say. Choose to be a friend that can be trusted!

“Gossip is a prayer request un prayed for.” – Laura Bax

Laura A lot of times as Christians we think we need to be part of another Bible Study or church event to feel we are making a difference. Laura Bax shares how being involved in church events is good, but don’t forget about your community and neighborhood. She lives on mission to reach those around her. She is not beating them over the head with a Bible, but showing them the love of Christ with her actions. Laura opens her home up to friends, and looks for opportunities to bless her community.

“People are not my project. It is not my burden to carry for others to come to love Jesus. That is the end result we all want, but that is not my responsibility. My responsibility is just to love and hopefully they are going to seek Him.” –Laura Bax
