Speak Love: Making Your Words Matter

Overview

You've heard, 'Think before you speak' a hundred times, and probably shrugged it off just like that other insightful phrase, 'Your face will freeze like that if you're not careful.' But unlike a facial expression, our words do stick around. (Just think about middle school a sec. See?)

Overview

You've heard, 'Think before you speak' a hundred times, and probably shrugged it off just like that other insightful phrase, 'Your face will freeze like that if you're not careful.' But unlike a facial expression, our words do stick around. (Just think about middle school a sec. See?) Which means everything you say---from what tell your friends, whisper about your enemies, post online, mutter to yourself, or even say to the celebrity you ran into at the coffee shop---carries a whole lot of power.
The question is, are you ready to use that power to make a real difference? Because the truth is, you could be part of the first generation who uses their words to build up and not tear down, and even kill the mean girl mentality. Through very funny stories, Scripture, and a real understanding of the good, bad, and ugly ways we can use our words, Annie Downs explores the difference you can make when you speak love to others, to God, and even to yourself. Because when you speak love, you speak life. And that's what matters.

Meet the Author

Annie Downs is an author and speaker based in Nashville, Tennessee. Flawed but funny, she uses her writing to highlight the everyday goodness of a real and present God. By weaving together personal stories, humor, and Scripture, she invites the young women reading to experience fulfilled lives with a God who made them on purpose and loves them deeply. When she’s not writing books or traveling for speaking events, Annie spends her days writing all over the internet---blogging at AnnieBlogs.com and incourage.me, sharing truths about her life in Nashville as a single Christian woman and the stories that are woven into each day. Annie is a huge fan of singer/songwriters, burritos, the Internet, her community of friends, and sports of all kinds.

    WOW!!!!

    I can't believe I'm the first to write a review on an amazing, beautifully written book! I just read the sample and when I get the money, BUY!!! This is a life changing book, even in the first few pages. If your serious about God and want to make the world a better place BUY IT NOW! I wish more people would learn to open up The Book and read what God has to say. This world would be safer and more family friendly. This is one book you won't regret! :)

    Speak Love is a book that EVERY TEEN GIRL should be reading!! I am going to make sure I recommend this to ALL my friends! If enough girls know about this book and take the time to read it, it truly will make a difference in your friend group, and and maybe beyond!! TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS BOOK! It will change drastically how you think about your words and how they affect people way more than you think. :) Thanks to Annie Downs for writing this book that I'm sure the Lord put on your heart to write! I was truly blessed by your insight!
