Honesty Over Silence seeks to open up conversations around topics that many find difficult such as trusting in God through life’s ups and downs, dealing with anxiety and depression, the challenges of parenting a child with special needs, living in community, learning to look after ourselves, developing our character, and living with thankful hearts even in tough seasons. It examines the strength in letting go of our need to be in control, as well as looking at how we can stop comparing ourselves to others and instead live authentically and honestly as we grow into the people God has created us to be. Lessons are often learned through hard times and mistakes made; Honesty Over Silence seeks to share some of the things Patrick learnt being a husband, dad and a leader as he tries to live out his faith with integrity.
