Guide Your Mind, Guard Your Heart, Grace Your Mouth by Carol Burton McLeod Blog Tour

About the Book

Title: Guide your Mind, Guard your Heart, Grace your Tongue
Author: Carol Burton McLeod  
Genre: Non-Fiction, Christian Living  
Release Date: April 3, 2018
Every single one of us with a beating heart has spoken words “under the influence” of warped feelings and slurred thinking. And we soon wish we had the magical power to take those words back. We especially regret the hurtful words we have spoken to those we love the most and know the best. This book may just be the solution. Carol McLeod reveals that before the words are spoken, they brew in our hearts and are formed in our minds. It’s our thoughts and emotions that determine what words come out of our mouths. Guide Your Mind, Guard Your Heart, Grace Your Tongue is an innovative blueprint that will enable you to take control of your thoughts and feelings in order to grace your tongue. You won’t find pat answers here, but rather powerful strategies based on the Word of God to reroute disordered thinking and cure rotten emotions so your words can be humbly grateful instead of grumbly hateful.

My review:

This may be the best book I have read in years on what my Christian life is to be like. McLeod's insights into the mind, heart, and mouth are stunning. I was shocked to realize how far my Christian life is from what God has designed.

But McLeod did not leave me helpless. She provided great teaching on how to reign in out of control thoughts and fill my mind with the truth of the Word. She helped me learn how to develop healthy emotional responses. She enlightened me as to what my mouth was created for and challenged me with the rules she has for her own mouth. She presented the clearest teaching I have ever seen on the spirit and soul. That section alone makes it worth reading this book.

I highly recommend this book. But read it only if you are willing to be challenged time and again. McLeod reminds you that you can life a Christlike life through the power of the Holy Spirit. If you really want to honor God with your thoughts, emotions, and words, this is the book for you. Excellent teaching, great challenges, and lots of practical suggestions are included to help you think, love, and speak as God desires.

My rating: 5/5 stars.
