Product Description

In this entertaining yet thought-provoking book, author Annie Downs challenges teen girls to end the mean girl mentality and become a generation who use their words to build up, not take down. Through examples from her own life, both positive and negative, as well as truths found in Scripture, Downs looks at the difference a new verbal perspective can mean when we speak to friends, God, and even ourselves.

Publisher's Description

You've heard, "Think before you speak" a hundred times, and probably shrugged it off just like that other insightful phrase, "Your face will freeze like that if you're not careful." But unlike a facial expression, our words do stick around. (Just think about middle school a sec. See?) Which means everything you say—from what tell your friends, whisper about your enemies, post online, mutter to yourself, or even say to the celebrity you ran into at the coffee shop—carries a whole lot of power.

The question is, are you ready to use that power to make a real difference? Because the truth is, you could be part of the first generation who uses their words to build up and not tear down, and even kill the mean girl mentality. Through very funny stories, Scripture, and a real understanding of the good, bad, and ugly ways we can use our words, Annie Downs explores the difference you can make when you speak love to others, to God, and even to yourself. Because when you speak love, you speak life. And that's what matters.

Author Bio

Annie Downs is an author and speaker based in Nashville, Tennessee. Flawed but funny, she uses her writing to highlight the everyday goodness of a real and present God. By weaving together personal stories, humor, and Scripture, she invites the young women reading to experience fulfilled lives with a God who made them on purpose and loves them deeply. When she’s not writing books or traveling for speaking events, Annie spends her days writing all over the internet—blogging at AnnieBlogs.com and incourage.me, sharing truths about her life in Nashville as a single Christian woman and the stories that are woven into each day. Annie is a huge fan of singer/songwriters, burritos, the Internet, her community of friends, and sports of all kinds.

    Annie Downs is an author and speaker out in Tennessee. When she's not working on books, Annie spends her days writing all over the internet- blogging at AnnieBlogs.com and (in)courage- sharing biblical truth about her life as a single Christian woman and the stories that are woven into each day. Annie is the author of two books, both of which are for teens: Perfectly Unique, a spiritual growth book for high school and college girls, and her newest book; Speak Love, a challenge to young girls on how to use their words to make a difference in the world.

    First off, as a I am not a teen girl, I can certainly say that I am not the author's target audience. I have however seen the movie "Mean Girls" so that makes me an expert, right? Ha ha... hardly.

    Look, we all know that the words we say can be uplifting or damaging - and as social media and technology makes our world smaller and our "reach" wider it's important to understand the power of our words. My son learns about bullying in Kindergarten now! That's crazy, but it's the world we live in. I know first hand the effects of being picked on and picked last and I can say without a doubt that a book like "Speak Love" is needed in the world.

    We often forget that the Mother of Jesus was a teen when she discovered that she was pregnant - an event in her life that could have her killed! Mary runs to a beloved cousin and tells her story - and rather than shake a finger, ground her or tell her how disappointed she was in Mary - Elizabeth "blesses her" - and that blessing leads to Mary's rejoicing and singing the Magnificat!

    This is a terrific book for that teen girl in your life to use as a devotional (with the companion journal) or to read along with her at night. Annie "says it like it is" and keeps it readable and livable and I know that girls will appreciate her transparency.

    I pray this book sparks a movement.

    Thank you to Zondervan for an advanced copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
