45. Growing the Honesty Muscle In Our Kids (part 4), with Laurie Donahue

Do you ever find yourself hiding from the truth? There are 3 people with whom we need to be truthful. Without one, each of the others is affected. They are truthfulness with God, truthfulness with ourselves, and truthfulness with one another. This podcast, which was from a workshop I led a few years ago, is an introduction to growing in truthfulness in ourselves and our kids in each of these. This is the fourth podcast of this series and it is about truthfulness with one another. To hear the first, second, and third go back to podcasts #36, #37, and #38. Be sure to stay to the end because I list several resources that I have made available to you.
