Product description


Our words are a powerful weapon---for good or for evil. To wield our weapons properly, we need to allow God to steer our speech, aligning our words with his will. Karen Ehman has given us an important tool in this quest. Zip It takes us on a 40-day devotional journey through the Bible, giving us biblical direction, questions for reflection, and a daily challenge to ponder as we discover what to say, God’s way of saying it, and when we’d better just shut our mouths. (Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas; founder, The Urban Alternative; former chaplain, Dallas Cowboys; chaplain, Dallas Mavericks; author, Watch Your Mouth: Understanding the Power of the Tongue)

This 40-day challenge is just what I need to help me refocus and think through the words I say daily. Karen Ehman’s biblical wisdom, mixed with practical insight and everyday applications, helps me see that I can do better. If I follow God’s Word and think before I speak, I can learn to zip it and so can you! This is a must-read for all of us. (Courtney Joseph, author and blogger, WomenLivingWell.org and GoodMorningGirls.org)

Karen Ehman combines biblical depth and relational breadth, then wraps it all in practical application, making Zip It the complete package! In it, Karen has identified all the nuances of our speech, especially those with potential to harm, calling us out in the very kindest way, and offering hope for our wayward tongues. The right word in the right manner at the right moment has the power to transform lives. I’m so grateful to Karen for inviting us to a place of loveliness and grace with our words in a world that so desperately needs both. (Glynnis Whitwer, Executive Director of Communications, Proverbs 31 Ministries; Senior Editor, Encouragement for Today online devotions; editor, The NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women)

A great follow-up to her book Keep It Shut, this practical and engaging devotional will convict and encourage you! We all need to tame the tongue, don’t we? This practical help is exactly what we need to get us there! (Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and bestselling author, For Women Only)

Karen has done it again! In her coffee-shop-chat style, Karen’s latest devotional encourages us to use our words wisely. With her perfect blend of teaching and transparency, Karen leads with wisdom and wit. I felt convicted but hopeful that this is a change that is biblical and possible! (Whitney Capps, national speaker for Proverbs 31 Ministries and writer for their First 5 app)

Few people use words wisely. Those who do are like a “rare jewel,” as the Scriptures say (Proverbs 20:15). Short, insightful, and aimed at the heart, Karen Ehman’s brand new devotional, Zip It, offers hope to those of us who want to be that “rare jewel.” Powerful! (Patrick and Ruth Schwenk, founders of TheBetterMom.com and ForTheFamily.org; coauthors, For Better or For Kids)

In Zip It, Karen Ehman gives us a hard but needed 40-day challenge to practice using our tongue to heal and give life instead of as a weapon that hurts and kills. Her use of Scripture coupled with personal examples help us learn to use our words for the honor of God and the good of our neighbor. This is a much-needed challenge! (Jennifer Thorn, pastor’s wife and blogger, jenthorn.com)

Karen equips us with takeaways, lessons, and prayers to ensure the words we speak not only please the Lord but also bless and encourage others. I especially love her challenge to create a “word-robe” (a word wardrobe) within our hearts and fill it with biblical truths and promises tailored to meet our needs and circumstances. (Wendy Blight, Proverbs 31 Ministries First 5 Writing Team; author, I Know His Name: Discovering Power in the Name of God)

With great application, personal insight, and humor, Karen Ehman dives into an area each one of us struggles with---our words! She has a way of taking touchy subjects, giving them a fresh perspective, and pointing us to grace-covered truth. What a perfect book at any age and stage of life! (Clare Smith, blogger, speaker, personal coach, and trainer, ClareSmith.me)

Our words are directly tied to the condition of our relationship with Jesus. The 40-challenge of Zip It arrives at a great time in the history of the world. Social media, circles of friendships, and family relationships are built and destroyed with the power of our words. Zip It is a great book that will help you have victory of your mouth! Take the challenge! (Chrissie Dunham, Global Director of Women’s Ministry, Prestonwood Baptist Church)
