Book Review: Keep it Shut

Keep It Shut; what to say, when to say it, and when to say nothing at all by Kathy Ehman is a book that using biblical examples about how, when, and what we should say (or not say).  Through stories and people in the bible, along with some personal stories, she weaves together a picture about the importance of our words and how they can hurt or heal, mend or tear apart, encourage or destroy so many things.  She uses examples of David, Joseph,   ____ to show biblical examples of using words correctly, using words incorrectly, and how silence used correctly is stronger than anything you could have said.

I enjoyed this book.  I found it easy to read and her style of writing very conversational.  I have learned a lot about this book and how to guard my words more closely.  I hope her words and verses quoted help tame my tongue and my heart.

I would recommend this book to all of my friends and family.  Words are something everyone needs to work on.  Such a small piece of the body has so much power.  But more importantly it connects to the heart and show it to everyone who hears.

Note: I was given a copy of this book for free to read and review.  The opinions above are my own an I was not compensated for a positive review.
