Speak Love: Making Your Words Matterby Annie F. Downs
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."

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.
