“The toughest conversation to have is the truthful one that is necessary for us to have with ourselves in order for us to shed anything in our life that is prohibiting us from becoming everything that God created us to be.” - Tommi Vincent
“There's the saying, ‘The truth hurts.’ And I believe quite the opposite, ‘The truth helps.’ And when we're able to be truthful with ourselves, we are laying a foundation for some serious healing, some serious development.” - Tommi Vincent
“It starts with embracing being different and not only embracing being different, but the perspective that difference is valuable. Difference adds more value.” - Melissa Dawn Simkins
“It is work, even all of that grace, the loving on you, that's work. Because it's not something that comes a lot of times intuitively… We're quick to critique ourselves with each other, but loving on yourself, that's work.” - Melissa Dawn Simkins
