The message of the book is aligned with Scripture, as Karen Ehman teaches the fine art of holding your tongue and silencing yourself. While it may seem like common sense, in a social media world where our voices are heard in further distances, it's critical to realize what to say, when to say it and when to keep it shut!
Karen shares personal stories with humility and love. She invites her readers to identify with "foot in the mouth" situations and offers alternatives to unhealthy situations.Learn the art of listening, speaking with grace, and cultivating a new language of communication. Read this as a Book Club selection, a Bible study, or as a self-help book if you struggle with either side of the communication fence. May you be blessed by this Karen Ehman book!

It is also quite funny that I did not notice it was a book geared toward the female audience. As a guy, I only figured it on sort of in the end, with the closing prayer. While I may not be a chatterbox and tend to keep my mouth shut in most situations, I learned that my mouth of few words still needs the help of God and prayer in order to speak words of grace with lace.
