benefit fully from Karen Ehman s book Keep It Shut What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All, you must be willing to undergo a little self examination Karen tells of her own tongue taming battle before sharing biblical lessons from Joseph, Daniel, and even King Herod Each story lends itself to an invaluable piece of advice that we can apply to our own conversations Readers are asked to evaluate their daily intake of the Word Luke 6 45 , our motives for speaking, and our skills as listeners Some of her best advice pertains to when to hold our tongue, what to share and what is gossip, and how to defuse heated verbal exchanges My copy of Keep It Shut is full of post it flags marking quotations and tips I want to return to The advice is biblically based, socially relevant, and has the potential to prevent future speech faux pas when you put them into practice Women speak words in a day than men that s a fact , so it stands to reason that women may need help learning what to say, how to say it, and when to zip it For this reason I highly recommend this book to Women s Ministry groups and book clubs to read and discuss together Ladies and gentlemen this book may be just what you need to improve the emotional climate in your home, to open the lines of communication in your family, and to prevent future meltdowns I give Keep It Shut 5 5 stars.I received this book

early years, that in my early thirties now, I am no where near where I use to be but sadly nowhere near perfect, but I won t give up keeping my mouth shut and some opinions to myself.As my Mum says If

seven thousand words per day Women use about twenty thousand in the course of a year, women speak about 7.3 million words and men utter about 2.5 million words The Bible says that life and death are in the power of the tongue Proverbs 18 21 So in our quest to use our words in ways that are good and honor God, we must first consider the heart and mind from which they come James 3 5 6 James uses fire for an analogy for how our words can quickly spread, causing untold damage.We should use our words to build up, encourage, and speak for truth G.R.A.C.E is God s Riches At Christ s Expense For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast Ephesians 2 8 9 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you James 1 19 21 Scripture states that there is a time to speak up and a time to remain silent Ecclesiastes 3 7 Set

time to time Whether you habitually turn the prayer chain into a gossip group or just lapse occasionally into insecurity fed flattery Wherever you fall on the sliding continuum of the blab o meter, you ve undoubtedly wished, at some point in your life, when it comes to your mouth, that you could just Keep It Shut Karen Ehman has earned the right to issue a stern warning concerning the use of words by transparently sharing her own history of open mouth insert foot Grounded in Scripture, Keep It Shut confirms that a problem with the mouth begins in the mind and in the heart Gracious words spring from a heart that is laced with grace, a quality that comes straight from God who kindly sets the example with His ultimate compassion To reinforce the influence of the mind over the mouth, Karen has compiled a collection of Scripture verses on the right use of words which can be photocopied for memorization and meditation.Don t by fooled by the old standard, Is it true Is it kind Is it necessary because even if your comment passes the truth test, motives count, and they are weighed by the Lord Proverbs 16 2 Among the many helpful check lists in the book is a list of questions for examining motives before speaking.In the digital age, our fingers can do the talking for us, making it even urgent that we recognize when it s time to be quiet In fact, one of the most thoughtful suggestions in this very practical book deals with confidentiality When handling a particularly sensitive issue involving a friend, Karen texted the reassurance that she would not be talking about the situation to anyone other than God, and then reminded her friend that she was praying and available if needed As difficult as it may be for a talker to imagine, sometimes the most helpful thing a friend can say is nothing.However, godly speech is not an excuse for wimping out when there is hard truth that needs saying Instead, she who would speak the truth in love must find the fulcrum the pivot point that balances gentle honesty with hard truth enveloped in love The truth is that death to self is the only antidote to angry mama mouth, and it is the only fire extinguisher for the flames caused by the gasoline queen See in it a chance to die, said Amy Carmichael whenever one of her orphanage staff complained about the cost of discipleship, and a costly discipleship it is when a natural born talker has to weigh the impact of all those words.Used rightly, however, words are a gift, and Keep It Shut ends on a blessedly positive note with many suggestions for using words to build up and not to tear down I have already recorded one of Karen s ideas in my planner for use during Lent, and her final chapter and appendices beautifully capture the challenge of any spiritual discipline There is the old behavior which needs to be cast off, and there is the new Christ exalting behavior which, by the Spirit, we are empowered to put on In maintaining a mouth that glorifies God, not only must we be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry We must also be quick to use gracious words which are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones

  • To the outside world, strangers, and casual acquaintances, I am not a talkative person The complete opposite is true with those whom I feel most comfortable with my family, friends, and bible study ladies Unfortunately, if you spend enough time in my inner circle you are bound to hear a few un christian things spill from my lips One such occasion happened three years ago and to this day that relationship has not fully recovered If your words have ever bested you, if you ve ever spoken with To th [...]


  • Excellent book.I ve spent my whole teens and early twenties yakking away about everything and nothing I then spend a serious amount of time in my late twenties regretting EVERY single word uttered that I should not have said, not only did I have regrets but shed a few tears.How wonderful it was to read a book by an author that was honest and open than I would have been I would have been a coward to admit to some things but ever so grateful to her as at the time it felt like I was the onl Excell [...]


  • The topic watching our speech carefully is one that each of us needs wisdom on, and I really appreciated Ehman s humor and transparency throughout the book She told a few stories of instances where she was hurt by someone else s careless words, but mostly she shared experiences of her own failings It was very refreshing to hear someone speak humbly in a Christian book.I did feel that it could have been pared down just a teensy bit, and she quotes a LOT of scripture I hate to write that as [...]


  • This is a great book about all the trouble our tongues can get us into and how to avoid each type It is filled with great stories and it is easy to find yourself among the pages I am so glad to have read this book I learned quite a bit and also found out ways I get myself into trouble without trying Great read


  • While this book is meant for women, I think we all have trouble with this subject A lot of it is nothing new you haven t heard in other books on the subject I do enjoy the scriptures which relate to each area though It helps when studying or living out those areas in your life.


  • I think Keep it Shut has several good tips and tricks for taming your tongue, as well as Biblical references and examples But I also think Karen could have used some of her own advise in writing this book a little too many personal stories, if you ask me I still thought it was worth reading and there were several note worthy points.


  • Keep It Shut is a good book to read when you feel that you struggle to control your tongue in a godly way It s full of helpful tips and tricks and definitely gives you some things to take into account while you speak to others as a representative of Christ the stories that the author uses to illustrate key points can tend to drag on a bit, but other than that it s a good read.
