Lesson Three: Taylor Mismanages Her Pain


After her Tuesday Bible study, Taylor asks Emily if she has a minute to talk.

“I need some prayer.” Taylor begins.

“About what?”

“What do you think about how things are going with the women’s event?”

”I’m really excited about it. I think it’s going to be great.”

“Me, too.” replies Taylor. “I noticed that Destiny shut down your idea about the candles.”

”Yeah, she does that sometimes.”

”Sometimes?! It seems like every time that I bring something up, Destiny shuts me down. It’s like she’s made up her mind about everything and just wants us there to help with all the work. She can be a little too controlling sometimes, don’t you think? It feels that way to me.”

”Yeah…maybe. Maybe you should talk to Pastor Frank about Destiny.”

”No. I’m not sure that it would do any good. Honestly, I’m just feeling a little overwhelmed right now and thinking about quitting the team. I’ve got a lot on my plate already. I just don’t know what to do. I’m really torn.” Taylor chokes back her tears and then adds, “Just pray for me, Emily. Okay?”


Emily gives Taylor a hug, then they turn and head towards their cars.

 In the few lessons, you’ll learn why Principle 13:35 is so important and how it can get things back on track between Taylor and Destiny.

The Big Idea

Triangulation occurs when we talk about someone rather than to someone. It’s probably one of the most common ways people disregard Principle 13:35.
