Welcome to those of you who made your way here after reading my Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion today entitled When To Weigh Your Words. {If you haven’t read this devotion, click here to so.}


Today is the release day of my latest book KEEP IT SHUT: What to Say, How to Say It & When to Say Nothing at All. It includes a six-week DVD Bible study with a Bible study workbook designed for individual or group use.

This book was both painful and exciting for me to write.

Painful because my mouth has gotten me in so much trouble over the years.

And exciting because I have seen how God has used His Word to change my words and allowed me to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease so let’s often!

So, in honor of the release…………WE’VE GOT GIVEAWAYS!!!!

But first….I am MOST excited about this:

Keep It Shut helps our lips….and theirs……

SPLogo_Lg5% of all the profits from KEEP IT SHUT will be donated to Samaritans Purse for their cleft lip repair ministry.

13107SD-I-154-cleft-lip-donateIn South Sudan, children who are born with a cleft lip are often shunned by society because of the false belief that they are possessed by evil.  The money donated will help volunteer medical teams to perform cleft lip and palate surgeries for patients of all ages. As we learn to use our lips for good and not evil, we can help these sweet children be rid of this horrible stigma in their society.

Now….for the giveaways….

First, as promised in the devotion….I am giving away a KEEP IT SHUT bundle that includes a Kindle Fire!




Yes in-deedy….  one winner will get:

* The book KEEP IT SHUT

*The six-session DVD of KEEP IT SHUT

*One Bible study guide of KEEP IT SHUT

* A Kindle Fire HD 6 valued at $99!

Total package value: Over $150!!

BUT WAIT…there’s more!

I have tons of fabulous blogger friends who are also giving away copies of the book and more. I’ll keep you posted as to who and where. {For starters, Courtney DeFeo is giving away one today!}

And Beki over at The Rusted Chain crafted a necklace based on the book and one of its key verses Proverbs 16:24:

    sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

  1. This book has helped me immensely. I am in college and had finally got back in touch with God, then a boy came along. I bought this book in the middle of the relationship and had only read a few chapters before putting it down for months. After the relationship ended I had forgotten who I was, took up drinking to forget for a moment and more importantly, I had lost touch with God.
    Although this book isn’t necessarily for ‘after a relationship’, it helped me remember who I really am and showed me ways to work back to that point.
    Thank you so much for your amazing work!

  2. This is a great prize offer and I hope I win. I’ve wanted a Kindle for a long time. I can so identify with you after reading the first chapter. Our words are so powerful. They can hurt or lift us up . I would also love to win the beautiful necklace. As all your studies I know this one I will learn valuable lessons. Thanks.

  3. I would love to win a copy of this book…I so need to learn how to keep it shut…and this would be a great start!!

    Smiles & Blessings, Robin :)
