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

    To God be the Glory. I receive your word

    I received this book from a girlfriend. At first a little taken back and my cynical tongue sure enough showed up but I thank God for the holy spirit which quieted that tongue and received whatever it is that God was using her to say. So I graciously received it, humbled myself and began to read it. Lo and behold, I found myself not being able to put it down and wanted to read it all in one day. I needed to stop myself and begin to practice removing each tongue from my verbal vocabulary. My husband also picked it up and we began to share in this experience with each other and call each other to the carpet in LOVE when our tongues got out of hand. Love it. Love it Love it. Would recommend this book to anyone in any type of relationship. Thanks My Sistah!

    A Not So Tame Book Of Reminders

    When Deborah contacted me, asking for permission to include one of my poems, ¿Hasty Words¿, in her workbook (a supplement to this book, due out in September 2007), I was shocked, yet thrilled at the request, and I eagerly complied. She even sent me an autographed copy of ¿30 Days To Taming Your Tongue¿. (Thank you so much, Deborah) I finally found the time to sit and read the book, and I must say, I was impressed. Her writing style is ¿user friendly¿ to all us sinners, and as I was reading, I realized she even had an adorable sense of humor. The way she includes her own personal experiences, and her struggles to tame her own tongue, made the book less of a ¿preaching at you¿ style, and more of just plain good advice on how to deal with ¿afflictions of the mouth¿. A truly enjoyable read and I highly recommend it to everyone¿because we all have tongues that need to be tamed in one way or another. Joyce Marie Taylor-Author and Poet

    There are no accidents!

    After a visit with a close friend I felt uneasy about a remark she made regarding how she feels when I speak with her. I walked into the airport bookstore and picked up this amazing book. I read it in two sittings and started practicing the principles. I doubt there's a single person out there who'd not benefit from this simple transforming read.
