Susan Stallings on "Resisting Gossip"

Susan Stallings was the first leader to take her small group of adults through the material in Resisting Gossip. These folks from West Shore Evangelical Free Church served as "guinea pigs" in the Fall of 2011:

Justin and April Biggs
Wes and Louise Bookamer
Barbara Bradshaw
Rich and Antonia Cardel
Dave and Irene Lepley
Bob and Nancy Reed
Rich and Susan Stallings

The feedback they gave, especially for the discussion questions at the end of each chapter, was incalculable. When the book was published this month, it was a pleasure to send each of them signed copies.

Susan Stallings also helped as a critical reader on Resisting Gossip sending copious notes of encouragement and suggested improvements, so it was a joy to receive her endorsement:

This book provides step-by-step guidelines to make real and practical change in the life of the reader. As a group leader, I like the fact that the discussion questions at the end of each chapter are based in Scripture, making it excellent Bible study material.  As far as application of what the group is studying, no one can read this book without having to make a decision that affects the heart.” – Susan Stallings, small group Bible study leader, West Shore Evangelical Free Church, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
