The power of honesty

Live audio chat with Carol Rockhold Miller, C.S.

Carol says, "I think of honesty as a compass, a guide, that will help us sort out the proper words and acts in even the most challenging situations. When you think of a boat ... charting a course across a body of water, using a compass and a navigational chart for a guide, to stay with that guide is a protection and prevents one from wandering into places of danger, dangers perhaps unseen to the naked eye. A consistent standard of honesty, of truth, and sincerity is a mighty protection and gives one a deep feeling of peace."

During the chat, Carol responds to several questions about honesty in marriage, how to help children be honest and value honesty, what to do if someone has been "too honest" and unwittingly said hurtful things, how to deal with gossip and compulsive liars.  She also offers thoughts to a teacher–and a student–about cheating at school.
