Everyday Talk

“I wish I could say that I have no regrets when I think about the things my children heard come out of my mouth. No, they never heard me curse and they never heard me verbally assault their mom. No, they never heard me teach them a heresy or call them evil names. But they heard things come out of my mouth that leave me the grief-stained residue of a painful memory. Yes, I know God has forgiven me, and by God’s grace so have they, but these memories make me wish I had Everyday Talk in my hands 30 years ago.

 

John Younts understands the power that words have to instruct the heart and shape the soul. And he understands that little of our influence in our children’s lives is exercised in those formal moments of instruction that get so much emphasis. No, most of our spiritual influence occurs in mundane moments of everyday life, when our verbal reactions to life reveal the character of our hearts and the content of our faith to our children as they are developing their understanding—of life, God, themselves, the fallen world, etc. Younts knows that it is in these little moments that the puzzle pieces of godly or ungodly character are pieced together. And he knows to make the most of these little-moment opportunities.

 

If you are a parent, you need this book. Go out and buy it now and read it as soon as you can. Trust the words of a man who regrets many of his little-moment words, this book will rescue you from you, and in so doing, it will enable you to be a better parent to the children God has placed in your care. If you are not a parent, you need this book as well, because every day you speak words that are shaped by God’s kingdom or yours. Everyday Talk will make you listen to what you say as you react to the situations and relationships of your daily life.”
