In this book the author discusses the power of words and provides a guide to 'smart talk' that can change your life. Words are a big deal. They are containers for power, and we have to decide what kind of power we want our words to carry, says the author. "I believe that our words can increase or decrease our level of joy. They can affect the answers to our prayers and have a positive or negative effect on our future. One might say that our words are a movie screen that reveals what we have been thinking and the attitudes we have." Building on the premises of her previous books, she examines the tremendous power of words, which are the vehicles that convey our thoughts and emotions, and provides a series of guidelines for making sure that our talk is constructive, healthy, healing and used to good results. Topics include: The Impact of Words ; How to Tame Your Tongue ; How to be Happy ; When to talk and when not to talk ; Speaking Faith and Not Fear ; Corrosion of Complaints ; Do you really have to give your opinion? ; The importance of keeping your word ; The power of speaking God's word ; How to have a smart mouth. In a 'Dictionary of God's Word' at the end of the book, the author provides dozens of scripture verses, arranged by topic, that she recommends reading and saying out loud as one way of using and claiming healing words.
