Book Summary

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.

Book Review by Bree Herron


You may think that your faith is strong but after reading this book you will see true strength in your following of the faith. I was amazed at the details and thoughtfulness that the author depicted in this guide. I also agreed with her on many levels, finding that we are all in need of this book. Faith isn’t a one way street, you must walk and talk the Word. But do we truly know how to do so and be happy?

Readers that struggle with the negative emotions will grow from reading this book, you will see there is ways to make the light shine always. I personally recommend this book to those seeking a stronger faith, and a way to be more faith-filled.
