Taming your tongue is no doubt a difficult task, but it's not impossible!
Our tongues are surely set on fire by hell, but thankfully the Lord offers us grace and mercy. The Keep Quiet Challenge will help you learn new habits and break the chains that keep our minds and mouths in bondage.
Scripture calls us fools when we cannot keep quiet (Proverbs 29:11). We drive our husbands to the roof (Proverbs 25:24) and annoy those around us like a continuous dripping (Proverbs 27:15-16).
“And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell.” James 3:6

I don't want to cause them to stumble."
