In this book Prophet Valerie Muchuwa  explains in a simplistic  way of “ The power of the Tongue”

You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger;

 Prophet Valerie Muchuwa put in writing on how there is a muscle in the human body that can cause more heartache, more pain, more mistrust, and more anger, than all the other muscles put together. It is so powerful that it has caused betrayals, murders, wars, and riots. It is a factor in the destruction of friendships, relationships, and families, and is a major factor in most separations and divorces. He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity. The tongue can express or repress; offend or befriend; affirm or alienate; build or belittle; comfort or criticize; delight or destroy.

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me!” We all know that isn’t true, don’t we? Actually, psychological pain is much more severe and lasting than physical pain. More people than we might think harbor scars from psychological abuse as children. Those scars are on their hearts and they influence their lives

Words can break our hearts. Words can break our spirits. Broken bones can heal with time, but a broken spirit caused by words of death, isn’t easily repaired. How many people have you maimed or killed with your words? Is your tongue too quick to criticize? Do your words build up…or do they tear down? So how do we tame our tongue? 
Words spoken in the heat of the moment had left scars, ruined friendships, destroyed relationships, or even alienated family members.

God created in man the ability to communicate with the spoken word. He gave us the tongue as a tool to use to speak with each other. It enables us to tell each other how we feel and what we think, as well as to convey words of wisdom, hope, encouragement, and love. He gave us the ability to worship Him in speech, to communicate His laws and His ways

For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea animal, can be tamed and has been tamed by human genius. But the human tongue can be tamed by no man. It is a restless, undisciplined, and irreconcilable evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who were made in God’s likeness! Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. These things, my brethren, ought not to be so.
Never open your mouth until you know what the shot is. Watch your mouth.

God bless!
