Truth Be Told Quotes are bits of wisdom to share with teens and young adults that help them learn how to be good people. The quotes were born out of the experiences I had growing up with parents who emphasized the importance of taking personal responsibility and being aware of one’s impact on others. Then, while raising four children through their teen years, I figured out that these life lessons are universal-- we all need some help growing into people we can be proud of.
The quotes of advice and teaching resources are the product of countless lessons my kids and I learned, through years of real-life practice. (Thanks, kiddos). I hope they’ll help parents, teachers, and young people embrace doing the right things for the right reasons.

Colleen will tell you that having four kids is great because you start to see patterns. “When the first child ends up in a tangled heap after riding his little sister’s rocking horse down the staircase (true story), you wonder if you’ve failed as a parent. By the fourth kid, you’re like, ‘This again? What'd I say the last 10 times this happened?’”
Colleen is the author of the Talking with Trees series of social emotional learning books and teaching resources for elementary students and Super Easy Storytelling, a creative writing and storytelling website. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Duke University, but learned most of this wisdom by being mom who prioritized raising good kids. She and her family live in Oregon, USA.
