Jeff and Terra Mattson, co-founders of Living Wholehearted and co-authors of the book, Shrinking the Integrity Gap: Between What Leaders Preach and Live, were recently featured on the D6 Podcast with Randall House Publishers to discuss the important topic of integrity.
Jeff and Terra define what the integrity gap is and how we identify them in our own lives as leaders in the home, work, and communities. They describe the link between unresolved trauma and integrity gaps, why unhealthy coping strategies can be detrimental to true healing, and why Christian leaders find it especially difficult to be honest about their struggles.
Jeff and Terra share how leaders can get the help they need to stay emotionally, mentally and spiritually healthy and practical steps churches should take in vetting potential hires to ensure safety for the people of their congregation. Finally, they show the role confession plays in shrinking our integrity gap and how shrinking the integrity gap applies to leadership in the home.
