Publisher's Summary

Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all. From Bible times to modern times women have struggled with their words. What to say and how to say it. What not to say. When it is best to remain silent. And what to do when you’ve said something you wish you could now take back.
In this audiobook, a woman whose mouth has gotten her into loads of trouble shares the hows (and how-not-tos) of dealing with the tongue. Beyond just a "how not to gossip" book, this book explores what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Karen will cover using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers as well as in the many places we use our words in private, in public, online, and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves. She will address unsolicited opinion-slinging, speaking the truth in love, not saying words just to people-please, and dealing with our verbal anger. Christian women struggle with their mouths. Even though we know that Scripture has much to say about how we are - and are not - to use our words, this is still an immense issue, causing heartache and strain not only in family relationships, but also in friendships, work, and church settings.

God Truly Inspired This Woman!

This has been a wonderful journey for me and my Bible study. Keep It Shut is jam packed with Bible verses and life experiences to make it easy to relate to and remind you of what is truly important. I have already seen great results in my daily speech and I have become more mindful of the impact of my words. I think everyone should read this book it really helps you to be a better communicator and friend.

Not what i expected

I was expecting to read as the title suggested... When to speak, when not to speak and what to say. Instead the book does not go deep enough in the subject, does not give enough examples and situations. In reality, for me it was like a quotation of the Bibles and sometimes quite repetitive. That is a shame because the subject of the book was quite what i need sometime :)... The 5 extra seconds.
