Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.
From Bible times to modern times women have struggled with their words. What to say and how to say it. What not to say. When it is best to remain silent. And what to do when youve said something you wish you could now take back. In this book a woman whose mouth has gotten her into loads of trouble shares the hows (and how-not-tos) of dealing with the tongue.
Beyond just a how not to gossip book, this book explores what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Karen will cover using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers as well as in the many places we use our words in private, in public, online, and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves. She will address unsolicited opinion-slinging, speaking the truth in love, not saying words just to people-please, and dealing with our verbal anger.
Christian women struggle with their mouths. Even though we know that Scripture has much to say about how we areand are notto use our words, this is still an immense issue, causing heartache and strain not only in family relationships, but also in friendships, work, and church settings.

shawnhettingaRussellvilleAge: 25-34Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5A Light-hearted ReadNovember 7, 2015shawnhettingaRussellvilleAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I have a confession: this book has been sitting on my nightstand for nearly a year. I pick it up and read it on occasions, and I finally finished it today. And when I say finished, I mean I skimmed through it, because I was feeling guilty about not finishing it within the first week or two of purchase.
Unfortunately, this book did nothing for me, yet I think that many would benefit from Ehman's words. Keeping my mouth shut is simply not a burden that I have to bear, because I am a classic introvert. Granted, there are times when I should have kept my words inside by brain, but these times are few.
Ehman is transparent and honest when reflecting on her own instances where she should have bit her tongue, and she weaves Bible passages to support her thoughts, yet it quickly began to feel repetitive with much filler to bulk each chapter. I do believe that this would be a great Bible study for a small group of women who are looking to connect to others as well as the world around them through laughs; however, you might want to look elsewhere if you are truly suffering and seeking a revelation.
