Words are so powerful; it is easy to forget just how powerful until the damage is done. I love the tagline on the back cover - "Words are powerful - use wisely." This is such a great book discussing the power, the damaging impact of negative words and then how powerful positive words can be, how they can heal. I love how this book is laid out. It is divided into 3 sections - the first focusing on words spoken to us, the second words we say to ourselves and the third words we speak to others. Each section is further divided into chapters and specific points and concepts addressed. Each chapter ends with questions, really making the concepts personal and interactive. There are so many good points in this book, I have underlined so many things. One thing that really stood out was how negative self-talk and a negative mindset impacts how we feel physically. Really our minds and mouths play such strong roles and can cause harm that lasts for years and years. The author strives to help the reader work through the impact of damaging words and breaking free of the harm and really trying to use positive words with others and one's self. I highly recommend this book.
