Have you ever said something you wished you could take back?

The Bible has a lot to say about the tongue and the kind of power it has. In his New Testament letter, James tells us that it can corrupt the whole body. The book of Proverbs claims that "death and life are in the power of the tongue."

Biblical, encouraging, and humorous, New York Times bestselling author Karen Ehman will help you:

  • Learn the essential practice of using your words more constructively.
  • Understand what God has to say about our tongues and how we should use them.
  • See how your words have power--whether it's in private, in public, online, or in prayer.
  • Gain practical insights into breaking habits of gossip, flattery, verbal retaliation, and people-pleasing.

Keep It Shut explores the hows (and how-not-tos) of dealing with our own words (and our silences), so that you can reduce regret and relational tension and deepen your relationship with God, the one true Word.

Also available: Keep It Shut small group video study and study guide.
