I have shared before that my tongue sometimes runs away from me. And that there have been times in my life that my mouth starts acting like a fountain – running and running and running.
Never slowing down.
And the things coming out of my mouth are not honoring to God, my family or me.
The fountain keeps going…until someone stops the flow of the water.
I have been working on this aspect of my character for some time now and I think I am doing better. But I do, on occasion, have a relapse.
I don’t think I am the only mother that loses control of her emotions. Or the only wife for that matter.
Last week, I purchased a book that stopped me dead in my tracks. How could I NOT know this? The fact of the matter is I DID know most of what the book talked about, but it was written in such an engaging and helpful manner that I was truly touched.
I think that I can get a handle on this motor mouth that I own. And, on the emotions that sometimes overtake me and take on a life of their own.
The book of which I write is….
This book, just released last week, truly is a gift for those of us that have trouble letting our emotions control us. Check out the website for the book here (not an affiliate link). The author, Brooke McGlothin, blogs here. And this book, well, it won’t take you long to read it, but it WILL be worth every minute invested in it.
I have to be totally honest. Since my only living child is 25, I wondered if this book would REALLY apply to me? Would there be anything in the book that I would find TRULY useful?
The answer is a BIG YES! It doesn’t matter the age of your children, this book is has principles that apply to you.
It doesn’t matter if you are married and don’t have children, this book has principles that apply to you.
It doesn’t matter if you are single, this book has principles that apply to you.
So when you are at your wits end. You can’t take ONE. MORE. MINUTE. There is hope. And you can find it by reading this book.
Brooke gives you practical steps to Feel, Know and Do. Allowing us to gain control over our emotions and not let them run away and manage us!
This was not a solicited review. I purchased the book of my own free will. It truly blessed me and I wanted to share it with you.
I’ve read some other really good books lately and I plan to share some of those with you too.
