If you’ve spent any time here at my blog *She Sparkles*—you know I enjoy giving away books, DVD’s, & resources that have personally impacted me. I feel like Oprah—I love it!
I’m thrilled about today’s giveaway Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman. I’m super excited about this book for a number of reasons!
First, you may remember, Karen is a good friend of mine. We first met in an airport after the She Speaks Conference in 2009, and since then, we’ve become prayer partners and cheerleaders for one another.
Friends, Karen is the real deal.
Not to mention, Karen is also a super gifted writer, blogger, and communicator. If you don’t know her already, what are you waiting for? You will love her! The woman is simply hilarious!
Get to know Karen at www.karenehman.com. (If you’re not reading her blog, you should. She’ll have you organized in no time!)
Can I just say, you’ll love this new book from Karen. From beginning to end, it’s all about watching our tongue and keeping ourselves out of a whole heap of trouble. Watch this fun intro video —
And from the back of the colorful book -
Got words? Oh yeah, you do!
The average women speaks over 20,000 a day—not to mention the ones she types online. Karen Ehman—a woman whose words have often landed her in a heap of trouble— shares from experience the how’s (and how-not-to’s) of dealing with the tongue in her new book Keep It Shut . Using biblical examples, as well as Karen’s own personal (and sometimes painful!) stories, Keep It Shut will equip you to know what to say, how best to say it, and when you’d better just keep your lips zipped!
This book will teach you:
• The difference between gossip and properly processing with a trusted friend
• A helpful grid for using our digital tongues as we talk online or on social media
• How to pause before you pounce, attacking the problem but not the person
• How to avoid saying something permanently painful just because you are temporarily ticked off
• What the Bible teaches about making our speech laced with grace, as sweet as honey, and yet seasoned with salt
Are you ready for my good news, friends?
I’m giving away a free copy of Keep It Shut to a *She Sparkles* friend this week!
