Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All

With Spring just around the corner, most of us will embark on our annual spring cleaning adventures.

We’ll sift through our closets and swap out our wardrobes. Our windows and furnishings will be meticulously dusted and polished to welcome in the new season.

But what if God is calling us to do a different kind of cleaning this year?

Proverbs 18:21a says “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” and while many women are familiar with this scripture, watching our words can be a daily struggle.

That’s why our next book club read will be “Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All” by Karen Ehman.

Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely

Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of The Best Yes, Unglued, Made to Crave, and 16 other books, and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries is back at it again with her brand new book, Uninvited.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection, including the incredibly painful childhood struggle of being abandoned by her father.

205876_1_ftcUninvited examines the roots of rejection, as well as its ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.

With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa promises to help us:

  • Stop feeling left out by believing that even when we are overlooked by others we are handpicked by God.
  • Change our tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process our hurt.
  • Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady our souls and restore our confidence in the midst of rejection.
  • Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.
