Your words can tear someone down – or you can chose to speak positive words and change their life forever.

In this Focus on the Family podcast (video and audio options above), Sharon Jaynes shares her embarrassing story that all started with an accidental voicemail. She was annoyed with her husband so Sharon phoned home and left a scathing message on their home phone. But then she thought better of it a deleted the message before her husband could hear it—but didn’t realise the message had gotten scrambled with their voicemail greeting.

For days, anyone who called their home heard Sharon’s angry chastisement of her husband. Mortified and convicted, Sharon was inspired to start re-thinking her approach to words. In this Focus on the Family broadcast, Sharon shares wisdom for aligning your words with the heart of God, to bless those around you—and yourself.
