Spiritual Self-help books aren't usually my thing. This one wasn't too bad but it still didn't hold my interest enough to get through it in a timely manner. To be fair, I read the Kindle version. I think if I had had an actual book sitting in front of me reminding me to read it, I would have done better. I was interested in the title because I an a very talkative person. I knew a 40 day challenge to keep it shut would indeed be a challenge for me! I did like the author's style. She was easy to relate to. As she said she doesn't always follow advice as well as she gives it. She lets you know she is in this struggle to control your words with you. She combined scriptures relating to controlling your tongue, parables and prayers in an effective manner. Each lesson had take-away points listed. It did hit home hard with me on several occasions and was thought provoking. If you like this type of book, I would recommend you get it in paperback. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310345871, Paperback)

Zip It empowers readers to put into action the advice and commands of Scripture concerning the tongue. The New York Times bestselling book Keep It Shut covered many topics, including anger, truth-telling, people-pleasing, our digital tongues online, and gossip. Because there are more than 3,500 verses in the Bible that relate to our words and our silence, Keep It Shut only scratched the surface of these issues. Karen Ehman now takes a deeper look and offers practical how-to’s that will inspire you use your words to build, to bless, to encourage, and to praise. 

Each of the forty interactive entries includes a Scripture verse focus for the day, a story or teaching point, and reflection questions with space for readers to write their answers and thoughts. Each entry ends with both a challenge that will help you carry out the directive in the verse and a prayer prompt. Rather than a traditional devotional,the entries in Zip It build upon each other, equipping you with new habits in how to, or not to, use words.
