This little hardback book of 219 pages published by Zondervan and written by Ace Collins is a wake-up call to all of us. We use 30,000 words a day. Collins tells us how to make them count. We can heal or injure, make happiness or sadness, cause a person to be lifted or crushed to the ground. We can inspire, destroy, make someone feel cared for or not wanted. Wow! The power of words. This is a commonsense book, but many of us don't use that God-given thing called commonsense. Let's weed out all the negativism and make our words positive and up-lifting.

You can purchase this book from LifeWay for around $16.99 - You will probably want your own copy to mark and re-read many times and then read it again.

Rita, hello, and thank you for this review. This is my passion! An apple of gold might not be great to eat, but how wonderful to have a row of them in the display cupboard! Pictures of silver! It is always my joy to study to prove myself a wordsmith with a vocabulary filled with words of encouragement. My favorite verse of the hymn, "I Would Be True" is the verse that says, "I would look up, and laugh and love and lift!"
