Remember the 30 Day Wholesome Talk Challenge I issued, oh, about 30 days ago?
Well, I have a good news/bad news scenario to share with you.
The bad news is I failed miserably with the challenge.
It turns out that old book of Proverbs really is on to something in that part that says, “When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable.” See, I talk a lot. A whole lot. With 8 children who are homeschooled, much of that talk is necessary, but with that many words coming out each and every day… Let’s just say I bombed the wholesome talk challenge.
That’s where the good news comes in.
All month as I was struggling along, and I was getting emails and comments from y’all with the same struggles, I kept thinking, “I need someone to lay out scriptures and encouragement for me EACH day to help me along the way. I need a daily wholesome talk devotional guide. Something that I can look at each morning, with different Bible verses related to controlling the tongue and a specific area to work on that day.”
That’s when I thought, “Well, why don’t I just write that myself?”
And then I thought, “No way. I need help in that area. I am not good enough to write something like that.”
But all month long, the thought wouldn’t leave me alone that if I need encouragement and a step by step guide to better talk, maybe others need it too. And I guess since I know how difficult it is to control my speech, then I understand the needs of others struggling in the same way.
So, I am writing an ebook to help us out with the wholesome talk challenge.
It has 30 days of scriptures on wholesome talk, and 30 days of encouragement to work on one aspect of wholesome talk at a time. It even has 30 days of journal prompts to record our progress and our prayers.
I’m working really hard on getting it finished, and I’m so excited to share this with you! Of course, I’ll be giving to my posse, my homies, my peeps for free, so be on the lookout for a release date in late April or early May.
