Do the words that come out of our mouths enhance or hurt our testimony? If we know that gossip, anger, lies, and complaints hurt God and those around us, why don't we control our tongues?

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America. I served congregations in Stickney, Illinois; Morrison, Illinois; and Pompano Beach, Florida, for 15 years before becoming associate editor of the Church Herald in 1975. In 1979 I joined the staff of the Reformed Church in America as a writer and editor, a position I held until retirement in April of 2000. Throughout most of this time I continued to do freelance writing (14 books, etc.)

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Beauty Care for the Tongue was originally written as a study book for the Women's Department of the Reformed Church in America. It was republished by Zondervan in 1974, where it went through 18 printings and sold 150,000 copies. Even though the book has been out of print for about 20 years I have continued to receive requests for it, so I am grateful that Kregel has agreed to republish it. The book has been extensively updated.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Feedback from people who have studied the book (either privately or in group study) indicates that it is a life-changing experience. I have deliberately taken a positive approach, showing the potential for a tongue that is positive, loving, clean, honest, etc. rather than decrying the negatives. The chapter titles emphasize this: "A Beautiful Tongue is a Silent Tongue," "A Beautiful Tongue is an Appreciative Tongue," "A Beautiful Tongue is a Witnessing Tongue," etc.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  "Many of our women have said this has made a real difference in their lifestyloe. This, without question, has been the most meaningful and easiest lesson book to present of any ever supplied us." That letter, from a women's church group in New York, is typical of the many I have received.
