What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All.
The title and the cover image says it all. We don’t need to blurt out everything on our mind or how we feel. If we’d all learn to Keep It Shut more, the world would be a happier place. Karen helped me to see areas I really need to work on, especially in Chapter 4, Zip It and Pray.
I thought Keep It Shut was very interesting and challenging. I love the Bible examples and her personal life stories. I could relate to so many and learn from them. Chapter 6 on Social Media was very helpful. I have a love/hate relationship with social media. Many others I know do also. We can use it for good though and if it starts getting stressful or irritating, it’s time to turn it off. On the other hand, I wish those who think they can attack others with their words from a computer would read this book and learn to Keep It Shut.
I desire to use my words, written and spoken, in a better, positive way and Karen has helped me do that. I also want to Zip It and Pray first before writing any word or blurting out on Facebook my frustrations or negativity. If you want to use your words wisely, I highly recommend Keep It Shut. Our speech should be laced with Grace and that is my desire. I hope yours too.
