Honestly 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 will examine 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.

'The Bible is way more honest than most churches about the actual levels of pain and confusion in life. That's why we need this book. It's going to provoke ten thousand honest conversations, helping to bring healing, hope and understanding to many who currently suffer in silence.' – Pete Greig
