A book to read when you think life hasn't been fair or good to you, once you read it I think you will look at things a bit differently.

I'm ordering the book today. Yesterday I had the opportunity to see pieces of the video at our womans breakfast at our church. Lives were changed yesterday. For sure. I only wish I had seen this before my sons were born. I'm certain I would not be experiencing the type of troubles I am now had I seen this first. I am telling everyone I know about Silver Boxes and Ephesians 4:29. I have a large silver box on my piano. A reminder that what I speak out to my children, my husband and everyone I come in contact with, should be encouraging, uplifting and edifying. You will never be the same after this material. Never. Thank You God for using this woman to change me forever. Speak life, not death to the soul of another. This will be my shower gift to every mom-to-be forever.

Excellent book! I got my toes stomped on a couple of times because I realized just what kind of person I was...selfish, mean and ungrateful. After reading her book, I realized that I can become a more thoughtful person if I just take the time to think through what I want to say or do. I can help make someone's life just a little bit sunnier for even a moment by just a word or gesture. Maybe it'll snowball and make the world a happier place for just a moment.

Florence is obviously a Silver Box sent from God, to share such real and needed topic. I have really enjoyed this book; I have shared it with the womens group I lead at my church. The real life examples within this book inspired me to become a better mother, daughter, friend and person. The author is sensitive and loveing while teaching the art of encouragement. You learn to uplift others while becomeing a better person yourself. I highly recommend this book if you have ever been hurt by harsh words or if you have ever hurt someone by an unkind comment. The Lord can use the stories in this book for you to find healing.

As a 16-year veteran of the sixth-grade classroom I found Florence Littauer's interpretation of Silver Boxes excellent. Very often the slightest voice inflection or casual aside can damage the psyche of the 11-12 year old! Because students this age are going through so many emotional and physical changes, I believe this group is particularly vulnerable to these kinds of comments. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all keep a "silver box" permanently in our hands? It would make our job as educators so much easier, and just think of the precious lives that we could influence in a positive way. I enjoyed her chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the different kinds of "silver boxes." I think it explained the premise in an easy-to-understand format. This book is a must-read for parents and educators who want to produce children and students with healthy self-esteem who will develop into happy, productive adults.

I was thrilled at this teaching tool for my family and friends. I am going to purchase a copy for my grown children, and for my grandchildren for Christmas, with sliver boxes in the package along with the book. Hopefully when we get together for family celebrations, we will see silver boxes in rooms in each house. I plan to start on this project right now, so I will have plenty of little silver boxes for each family. At the last family meeting I was not present, but I heard of some little catty remarks that were said about different ones. I think Littauer's book is going to be a fun way to bring forth some kindness in my family, and squelch some of the unkind remarks. Great book!

Have you had those days when you just don't feel like getting out of bed? Yes, those days when you feel you would make no difference? Now is the time for the truth..you can make a world of difference to others and Silver Boxes explains and shows you how. Florence has written a book which reads as if you were talking to her in person. The message of encouragement to others is so profound you will be touched forever. Not only does this book discuss how you help others with encouraging words but also how others have and will continue to touch you. Florence so exquisitly states it herself when she says make your words silver boxes wrapped up in ribbons for others to open. Open the pages of this book and fill yourself with its gifts

Silver Boxes is one of those books you find, and wonder why no one else heard of it! It is a litle dated, but because of that it is a great deal. It has a very modern/psychological idea about how language and the choice of words that we use to our loved ones, and others, has a real impact on them. It is based on a bible verse with that messsage.

I highly recommend this book for silver anniversaies, birthdays, and Christmas. Everyone should have a silver box in their home, to remind them of the fragility of the soul and the power of encouraging words.
