Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, & When to Say Nothing At All by: Karen Ehman

Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman is a wonderful Christian book for women of all ages. We as women tend to like to speak, we like to get our own points across, and share opinions from the start; its called gossiping, and we are all guilty of it. The thing is, its not what we are supposed to do as daughters of Christ; there is a right way to say something, and wrong way, and many times we tend to go about it the wrong way. Karen walks you through her own stories and how she handled them; she helps you to understand how to use your words for good whether talking with a friend, a stranger, social media, or what have you; my favorite thing about this book is that Karen uses examples from the Bible and in a friendly way, you never feel attacked!

From Karen Ehman's Website: This book will teach you:
  • The difference between gossip and properly processing with a trusted friend
  • A helpful grid for using our digital tongues as we talk online or on social media
  • How to pause before you pounce, attacking the problem but not the person
  • How to avoid saying something permanently painful just because you are temporarily ticked off
  • What the Bible teaches about making our speech laced with grace, as sweet as honey, and yet seasoned with salt
I found all of the above true with this book; Karen teaches what she preaches so to speak. This book is amazing, and I highly recommend it to any woman who wants to learn the power of words with a Godly point of view from a fellow sister in Christ!
