“Zip It”

The book for review is “Zip It: The Keep It Shut 40-Day Challenge by Karen Ehman. It falls in the genre of non fiction and religious.

Do you jut blurt out what is on your mind? Do you speak without first thinking on what you are about to say? Does it matter how it will affect the person you will be saying it to?

Welcome to Zip It, a 40 day book to help you probe on when to talk and when to zip it.

This New York bestselling book covers a range of topics with passages from the Bible that reinforces the message for that particular day.

People talk without thinking for a number of reasons. It can be due to anger, gossip, wanting to make the other person happy or being just flat-out blunt with honesty. This can include in this day and age to a/ face to face b/ in email or c/ online with all the social platforms now made available to us from kids to adults.

The premise of this book did intrigue me for I don’t always think before I speak, wanting to get the words out before I forget. What I liked about the book was how it was set up. Each day was a new way to learn how to control what we say. The scripture is not so much that it might turn people off but sprinkled here and there in just the right amount. I like the “homework” so to speak each day where we were encourage to try to do something each day to help us with our speaking, our tone and the intent behind it. The reflection questions reinforces the message of the chapter.

Even if this book turns out to not be your cup of tea I think you will get something out of it

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
