Today I want to tackle a subject that many of us may respond with, “OUCH!” Right?
I am also sharing a very personal and life-changing (yet shameful) story of how I became more aware of my words and thoughts toward others.
We will be talking about gossip. But not just the fact that we shouldn’t gossip or why it is bad. But WHY do we do it? Are we truly honoring others above ourselves when we choose to speak (or even think!) negatively about them? And what are we teaching our children when we ourselves are not modeling the humble attitude that Christ taught us? Not only are gossip, complaining, and negative words detrimental to our relationships, they reveal a deeper more ugly side of our flesh. But there is hope…The Spirit transforms us!
Join me today as I tackle this difficult, but necessary topic so that we can live in relationships as God truly intended for us.

Join me on my journey to clear the clutter as I am simply living...for Him! I am a homeschooling mom sharing about my faith, family, hobby-farm life, and Jesus. I am also an author and speaker and love sharing my journey with others- and I am all about keeping it real and authentic! Join me as I seek less of this world and more of Jesus!
Karen DeBeus is a homeschooling mom learning to live more simply and keep God at the center of it all. She is the author of three best-selling homeschooling books and writes at Simply Living for Him. She speaks nationally at homeschooling conventions and recently was a speaker at the Family Bible Conference in Washington, DC. Her passion is to help others clear the clutter from their lives, seek God first, and to encourage women and families to get in the Word every day.
In 2016, she founded the Simply Living for Him Retreat, which is a time of rest and renewal for all women seeking Jesus. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.
Great message! I think my struggle, in addition to the gossip, is letting people continue their gossip to me. I feel like I am going to offend them if I say something. It makes the situation awkward. I always try to reply with something positive about what is gossiped about.
Yes, absolutely agree. Good point!
