Have you ever been a victim of gossip? Gossip is one of those crimes many people are ashamed to admit to being a victim of. Why? Because when people gossip about us, we tend to think that it’s our fault. Oftentimes, we think if we were friendlier, more relatable, or generous, maybe others wouldn’t gossip about us. Well, I’ve got news for you. The gossip that someone spreads about you has nothing to do with you. You could be the most generous, friendliest, and relatable person on earth, but the person who gossips about you would still do it. It’s not about the one who is gossiped about, but the gossiper. “Evil speaking is a twofold curse, falling more heavily upon the speaker than upon the hearer. He who scatters the seeds of dissension and strife reaps in his own soul the deadly fruits. How miserable is the talebearer, the surmiser of evil! He is a stranger to true happiness” (5T 176.2). The gossiper requires a God-sip. At the root of gossip is a spiritual deficit expressed in lashing out at others behind their backs. Spirit of Prophecy has lots to say about gossip. The quotes in this link shed more light on the issue.

Hi, my name is Nicole Benoit-Roy. I am a graduate student at Andrews University in Michigan, pursuing a doctorate in Educational Leadership. The topic of my dissertation is Gossip. I endeavor to find a solution to the gossip problem that plagues our Christian churches, homes, and early childhood education programs. Gossip frustrates the churches' leadership teams and members. Christians are left to suffer the consequences of spiritual deficits due to disrespect for their fellow Christians. Church members do not want to worship with people who do not have their best interests at heart. The repercussions? Empty pews. Gossip in the homes divides families leaving us with a generation of children raised separately from two-parent homes. They doubt the Word of God and their identity in Christ. Gossip in our schools leaves staff, faculty, and parents frustrated while students are left to suffer the consequences of academic delays due to disrespect for their educators. Children do not learn from people they don’t respect. Spirit of Prophecy states:

[Educators] can do much to discourage that evil habit, the curse of the community, the neighborhood, and the home--the habit of backbiting, gossip, and ungenerous criticism. In this, no pain should be spared. Impress upon the students the fact that this habit reveals a lack of culture and refinement and of true goodness of heart; it unfits one both for the society of the truly cultured and refined in this world and for association with the holy ones of heaven. {Ed 235.3}


​Brady, Brown, and Liang (2017) reported that “gossip has a negative reputation and is often viewed as a malicious or devious act. While gossip in the workplace is typically believed to be unacceptable and discouraged, almost everyone engages in some form of gossip.” Edwards further suggests that “gossip may take place in the home among family members, in social settings with friends, or between colleagues in the workplace” (p. 2). Gossip occurs everywhere.

As part of finding a solution to help God’s people nip this bad habit at its root, I have created The HUSTLEEFUSLL Kit. This Kit contains the tools (see photo below) designed to assist Christians or anyone who believes in the Almighty God, who created the heavens and earth, to build Spiritual Wealth as they draw near to God in a close-knit relationship. God is Love. A sip of God’s love infuses our hearts with a true love for Him and our fellow man.  A deficiency in love for God and our fellow man spawns in the heart the desire to destroy one another even with our tongue. “Let the children, and the youth as well, learn what God says” about the tongue: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). {Ed 235.4, 5}. With these tools, we can eradicate gossip from our hearts. The choice is ours!


Your choice to pay it forward funds The HUSTLEEFUSLL Kit and keeps the program at a low cost for users around the world.

Our goal? To introduce to 1 billion people the roadmap to authentically love God and our fellow man. This requires a paradigm shift, so we’re inspired by Matthew 6:33, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.”

$20 thousand for the production of The HUSTLEEFUSLL Kit. In every country, one billion people, including the visually and hearing impaired, are in at least 100 languages. 

This requires a new mindset.

In The HUSTLEEFUSLL Kit, we’re creating an app that will send daily and weekly reminders to help 1 billion people stay connected to God and show them ways to love their fellow man.

We’ll bring our willing hearts, and you bring yours by paying it forward and spreading the word, and together we’ll watch God change hearts and behaviors.
