I have a lot of thoughts and words. And there’s more bad news. I am pretty courageous and bold. So, it doesn’t really matter who is there or around the table. I just share. Eek.
This combination (full of words and confidence) can be a strength. I am not afraid of confrontation or being shut down – I just share ideas, thoughts and more.
However, as I am slowly maturing and craving Jesus in all of me – I am realizing how my mouth can be a weakness.
- Have you ever had to delete something you wrote on social media?
- Have you ever had to apologize for a quick comment or email?
- Have you ever been misunderstood?
- Have you ever turned red from embarrassment in a meeting?
This mouth can be used for such good. Amazingly good things. I have used it to inspire, motivate, share God’s love, teach, speak love and life, affirm, build others up.
My mouth has been used for bad. I have hurt others. I have shared secrets. I have joked when it wasn’t funny. And on and on.
This is why I am CRAZY about Karen’s new book Keep It Shut. Here is what I said in my official endorsement in the book.
Everyone with a mouth like mine needs this book! Karen Ehman has a gift. She shares a message we need to hear in a way that is helpful, not condemning. I’m thankful for how Karen encourages women to lead like Jesus from head to toe.” – Courtney DeFeo
When she sent me the endorsement request, I texted back and said, “Thanks Karen. Great. Is your next one called “Stop Instagramming!” ? She had already rocked me with “Let It Go” about being a control freak and NOW I have to reign in my mouth.
Necessary encouragement in the sweetest way.
Straight shooter that makes you laugh.
I love Jesus so much and I love his people. So, I want all of my body and soul to honor Him – including this mouth. She gives some real practical ways of doing this. You will love it.
For all those vowing to use their words for good, say AMEN! And get your copy quick!
