Our words can be so cruel. Used wrongly, they can discourage people, cut open the heart and destroy someone's self-confidence—even ignite a fire and drive crowds to violence. And once they're spoken, they can never be recalled. Words enter our ears and burrow themselves deep into our hearts... often never to be forgotten. It's little wonder that the Bible instructs us to control our tongues. Inspired by James 3:1-12, and filled with 40 engaging stories and dozens of relevant scriptures, this book encourages you to use your speech positively—speaking kindness, sharing words that heal, expressing love, and praising God.
Four main topics guide the discussion: "Healing Words for..."

- the Community
With practical advice for all ages, Words that Heal is ideal for small group studies, family devotions, and personal reflection. It's a powerful reminder to "tame the tongue" so the whole world can receive the Good News... and ultimately know their heavenly Father.
