Speak Love: Making Your Words Matter (Paperback)
Through funny stories, Scripture, and a challenge that could help you change the lives of every person you see, tweet, or message for the better, Annie F. Downs explores the difference you can make when you speak love to others, to God, and to yourself.
Do you still remember a mean comment someone made about you online? Does something you said to your friend about your other friend haunt you sometimes? Has your day instantly gotten better because you received a compliment? That's because everything we say has a lot of power--even the things we tell ourselves. Annie Downs has learned this lesson firsthand as both a reformed mean girl and the recipient of a lot of hurtful comments herself, and she knows we can break the cycle of harmful words and make a difference if we decide to focus on speaking love--positive, honest words--instead. Through truthful and very funny experiences from her own life, as well as examples from the Bible and every part of life, Annie shows the amazing changes that can happen when we send positive words out into the world and believe them about ourselves.
- Is the perfect gift for young women ages 13 and up who are ready to speak love and speak life
- Looks at the ways we speak to ourselves, to others, and to God--and how choosing to use positive words with each one can change our lives, and the lives of those around us
- Pairs well with the companion devotional, Speak Love Revolution, that contains thirty days of encouragement and tips, as well as journaling space to record your Speak Love journey
