In it, Quinn shares how a friend called her about a family conflict and said these words, "Now before I tell you my side of the story, I reserve the right to be wrong. And I could not know what I'm talking about" which led Quinn to feel like this was a powerful topic to address before the holidays.?

Mind Renewal Tips

Always remember, "There is your side - my side - and the truth." 

Scripture Renewal:

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7?
