BOOK REVIEW “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” - Solomon (Proverbs 18:21, NKJV) W Title: TONGUE PIERCED Author: Nelson Searcy, Jennifer Dykes Henson Rating: Genre: Christian Living, Religion Released by: David C Cook Reviewed by: Leah St John Release Date: Available Now ords. Though they may seem small and are an oft overlooked aspect of our lives, they actually play a tremendous part in shaping our lives, each and every day. They contain the power to both positively and negatively affect you personally, your relationships with those around you, as well as your relationship with God. Tounge Pierced is a book that explores and reaffirms the magnificent power of words. It’s clear mission is to help its readers learn to control their words, and use them to better their lives. The book contains 9 informative chapters, each encouraging you to choose your words wisely, and offering tips on how you can effectively do so. Some of the topics include the power of words, prayer tips, how our thoughts affect various aspects of our lives, and the art of confrontation. There is also a 30-day no cursing challenge in one of the chapters. “The words that exemplify a tongue pierced lifestyle are words that reflect a heart filled with love; words that will impact your reality in ways that will bring you the meaning, relationships and success you want.” Living a “tongue pierced” lifestyle is by no means a new concept. But it is something that has been forgotten, thrown by the wayside if you will, by multitudes of people who seem to pay little to no mind to the words that come out of their mouths (this includes myself). Tongue Pierced serves as a good reminder to this generation that if we consciously pay attention to what we say, we can change our own lives, and the lives of others, with words that impart love toward others and God. A well written, well thought out guide, Tongue Pierced serves as a reminder that we need to choose our words wisely, because not only do they define us and reflect who we are, they affect those around us, and ultimately have an enormous impact on our relationships with both people and God.
