Most of us don’t realize how much our words can affect other people. In this book, Joyce Meyer teaches us just how much good or damage our words can do. Relationships can be built up or destroyed with words. She gave many examples of this, both building and destroying. We all saw a presidential candidate lose the voters’ trust with a careless comment about forty-seven percent of them.

How do you tame that unruly tongue? Unfortunately, we will probably never succeed in complete control. One way we can improve it is to stop blurting out the first thing that comes to mind. The Devil thinks faster than we do, so that first thought is probably his. We don’t want to do his destructive work for him, so think twice before you speak. Never, never speak in anger, for you will always regret it.

Mrs. Meyer also reminds us that there are appropriate times to talk. If you have nothing good to say, say nothing. It’s better than the hurt you can cause by not keeping your mouth shut. Also, your opinion is not always wanted or needed. If you see the person resisting your ideas, stop talking.

I found this book extremely helpful. Mrs. Meyer backs up her teachings with scriptures from both Old and New Testaments. I was comforted when she said she has struggled with curbing her own words. The lessons she teaches here will bring peace to your life if you apply them to your mouth.

I highly recommend Change Your Words, Change Your Life. Listen to Sandra McCollom not just read, but teach each lesson. It’s a book you’ll go back to again and again as you study the ways to change your life.
