Short stories, anecdotes, soul-searching questions, and scripturally based personal affirmations combine to make each chapter tongue-and-life-changing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book will revolutionize your life! Even entire congregations would benefit from doing this fast together."
P. Bunny Wilson, author and speaker

"This book is an invaluable guide packed with wisdom on thinking before you speak. Read it!"
Judge Mablean Ephraim, Divorce Court TV

"This book is the most directed, clearly written and forward to the truth of taming the tongue."
Lisa Gonzalez Jons, Realtor-Investor

"Recently I purchased three class sets and began offering writing prompts to my reading students from portions of Deborah's 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue. Her guided lessons offer brief, no-nonsense approaches for examining our own words and ultimately lead to thinking more seriously about lifelong attitudes and behaviors reflected by spoken thoughts-and, more importantly, their long lasting ramifications. My students find Deborah's approaches to 'taming the tongue' particularly appealing as they deal regularly with 'the tongue beast.' Through collaboration, role play and writing exercises, I have witnessed Deborah's positive influence on America's youth on a daily basis! What promise this brings to upcoming generations!"
—Rubye Browne Melton
