Product Description

When is silence golden? When is it more important to speak from your heart? Your friend is about to make a disastrous decision. You see problems in your son or daughter's marriage. At work you see a better approach than the one your supervisor suggests. Should you speak up or should you keep the peace by staying quiet?

When to Speak Up and When to Shut Up offers practical guidelines for conversations you won't regret. It'll help you explore the cost and purpose of silence, why to check motives when talking to others, how to ask good questions, ways to deal with anger and resentment, and how to overcome pressure to remain silent. Using biblical and contemporary examples, you'll find relevant strategies for building better communication within your workplace, church and home.

    I purchased this book at a time when my heart and mind were heavy-laden with knowledge of certain facts that I felt really needed to be reported, but that I wasn't sure I was the one who should do it. This book brought clarity to the issue, and, after I conferred with my church's pastoral counselor, I was able to put to rest the wrestling voices within and move forward with the necessary reporting. As God was in it, there was a good outcome. This book is highly recommended!

    This is an EXCELLENT BOOK FOR ALL BELIEVERS! As believers, we often say the wrong things at the wrong time. We hurt others with our mouths and when we need to speak up we are silent. This book give great instruction and examples to apply daily.
