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.

Keep It Shut explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all. In it, we’ll learn how to properly use our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers, in private, in public, online, and in prayer. We’ll also gain new insight on the words we say silently to ourselves!

We begin reading together on March 20th through April 20th.  

Throughout the month, we will also be interacting on the This Is Her Journey community page on Facebook. There I will be posting encouragement, study scriptures and inspirational videos. You will also have an opportunity to chat with other readers and share what God is revealing to you personally.

Join me here on Facebook and be sure to Like and Follow the Facebook page so you don’t miss a post!

You can purchase your copy through Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Christian Book Store or your local book store. (Can’t wait for your copy to arrive? Click here to check out a sample chapter for FREE!)

I hope that you are ready to spring into action with me!
