Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All #Review #FCBlogger #Christian #Books







As an official Family Christian Blogger, I received a copy of "Keep It Shut" to review. 

All opinions/pictures are my own. 



About Keep It Shut


Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.


I am quite the talker.

Not in every situation, but in most. Some would say it's a gift but, at times, it feels more like a curse. Especially when my feelings get hurt. And this was one of those days.

I had just received an email and I couldn't believe what I was reading. How dare they speak to me with such disrespect? They obviously didn't realize who they were speaking to. I wasn't always this sweet, Christian girl who held her tongue! I was going to let them have it - and I did.

The next day, in the mail, I received a copy of "Keep It Shut: What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All".

As I began to read, something came over me. It was in that very moment that I wished I could have taken back that email. Not that everything I said wasn't true, because it was. But was it necessary? Did I respond out of love or out of anger and hurt? Did I respond the way Christ would have had me? Surely not.

Karen Ehman's style of writing is so very personal. Much like me, she is a talker who has gotten herself into more than one painful situation. Using these situations, and those in the Bible, she invites us to examine our hearts and find our true motivations for what we say. She shows us how to "pause before [we] pounce" and avoid saying something permanently painful just because we are temporarily upset.

I have to be honest, my copy of this book looks like my study bible. It has markings in the margins, highlighted paragraphs, and underlined text. That's how good this book is. I wish every woman I know would read it and share it with their friends. I have absolutely seen a difference in the way I speak, and even the way I pray, since reading it. I have found more love in my heart towards others and a renewed humility in difficult situations. This book has enabled me to take a step back and re-examine myself in light of the Word of God.

This is my prayer: Teach me, Oh God, what is good and acceptable in your sight. Help me to make my speech laced with grace, as sweet as honey, and yet seasoned with salt. Let me be a light to others and show them Who You truly are, by my actions and words.

Stay in touch with all that Family Christian has to offer by visiting their Social Media pages!


Family Christian was kind enough to send me a copy of "Keep It Shut: What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All", for review purposes, and I am so grateful. All opinions in this post are 100% my own and were not influenced in any way, shape or form.

Comfortable - but not happy. #church #ministry #music #youtube

"God wants to invite us outside our comfort zone, but we’ve decided to stay safe."

I didn't sing for 15 years before I started singing again at First Baptist Church of Whitesburg.

15 years.

I was comfortable - but not happy. I knew what I was called to do and yet I had too much anxiety to do it. It felt so much safer not doing it.

And then God said "Go". And with a gigantic push from my beloved husband, Danny, I did.



Now I sing in front of hundreds and to a radio audience every Sunday. I lead a magnificent choir, who I love dearly and am proud to call my extended family. I sing for weddings and funerals and cherish that I can share those moments with them.

I don't say these things to boast, but to show the grace of God.

Contrary to what many think, it isn't easy for me - sometimes it is next to impossible. But I'm getting there. I trust in Him to deliver me from my fears and I commit my way to Him.

I know that when I am weak, He is strong.

Thank you for believing in and praying for the First Baptist Church of Whitesburg Choir and Music Ministry. Our Cantata is December 13th & 14th at 6 pm, and we would be so honored for you to attend.

My faith is so tiny. #scripture #bible #christian #Jesus #faith




oh, He has been speaking to me about faith.

My faith is so tiny, you know? I think, how can anything good come of this situation? I'm going to fail and everyone will see me do it.

"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20 A mustard seed is about 1 cm in diameter. The mustard plant, however, can be 9 feet tall. That's a pretty big thing to come from something so tiny!

And so, I pray.

Father, you are the Almighty God. You, Whose hands stretched out the heavens... Whose eyes have seen the dawn of time.... Whose ears have heard angels' symphonies. You are the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace - You alone are worthy of praise.

I come to You with such little faith, but I know You will honor it. For it is in my weakness that You are made strong. I know that, although it is hard for me to believe that anything good come come of this, you will take that tiny seed of faith and plant it for me. You will make a good and fruitful thing come to pass.

I trust You and believe You for it. I am so grateful for your mercy and compassion. In Jesus' Mighty Name, Amen.




Love, Renee

Our Review!


Our son is 4 :)

Generally, Zachary will choose his learning apps or a map (he loves geography) over any kind of toy (even Legos) but he absolutely LOVES these playsets! We have had them for 2 months now and he has not lost any interest in them. I appreciate that these playsets have encouraged his social skills and imagination. He loves his "friends" and listening to what the characters say on each of the MagicPoints. I love hearing him giggle and interact with the characters and their environments. He even drew a picture of his "toy friends", at the carnival, today for school (the carnival game is at the right top, with the flag!).




The sets were easily assembled, including the Busy Sounds Discovery Home. I love that the batteries are actually inside the characters, difficult to remove, and that each character has an on/off switch. That being said, we haven't turned them off at all and have not yet had to replace the batteries.



These sets are just so enjoyable! The characters are easily integrated into different sets, saying different phrases depending on the MagicPoint they are on. I thought that ingenious! Their catchy songs are familiar tunes and my son was singing right along with them from the beginning. He loves the vehicles and watching them go when he puts a character into the driver's seat. We are getting him the Smart Wheels Fire Command Rescue Center for Christmas and can't wait to see his excitement!
