Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All #REVIEW

A Rup Life received product to facilitate this post. This post may contain affiliate links. 

Anyone who knows me knows I have the gift of gab.  I can fill awkward silence like no other.  I make friends everywhere I go because I'm not afraid to strike up conversation.  On the flip side, I've shared things I probably shouldn't have and definitely said things that people took as rude or inappropriate.   It is a fine line I walk - daily.

I was thrilled to review  Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All by Karen Ehman.  This book is funny and practical. 

About the book:

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. 

  1. From Sparks to Raging Fire
  2. Squabbles, Spats, And Such
  3. Stop Filling the Gap
  4. Zip it and Pray
  5. Motives and Manners
  6. Behind the Screen
  7. But I'm Just Sharing a Prayer Request
  8. Lying, Loving and People Pleasing 
  9. Hurling Hate or Healing Hearts
  10. Something To Talk About 
  11. Gotta Have The Last Word

My Thoughts:

This was a very convicting book for me.  I have a mouth problem - I always have.  As I made my way through my 30s God got a hold of my heart and really convicted me on how I use my words.  I feel like this book really covered a bunch of good points on keeping our mouths pleasing to The Lord! The bible says:

 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. - Psalm 19:14

Ehman's style of writing is wonderful.  She is engaging and funny all while keeping it real about our heart problem.  She uses scripture to back up all that she says which I really appreciated.  I loved how she shared her heart when it came to each chapter - she is a fellow gabber - so she has walked this with us!  She is that honest, yet God-loving friend telling you how it is and how to work on it!
