Volume 44
I am excited to be getting this issue finished up slightly earlier than some months. We are busy with harvest here on the farm, so I'm not sure yet just when I'll be able to get to town to make copies -- Lord willing, it will be before too long. :-)

This issue is full of important, hard-hitting reminders as to the importance of guarding our tongues. I've learned a lot while putting it together! May we all learn to pray along with the Psalmist, "Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips."

Here's an outline of what this issue contains:

Online Resources
Though all the submitted articles on the theme were able to fit in this issue, I have compiled an extensive list of thought-provoking and interesting quotes on the power of the tongue -- see it here.

I also found several excellent articles on other websites that I thought you would be blessed by. Please keep in mind that I do not necessary agree with every point made in every article listed here (much less agree with other articles that are included on each of these websites!), but I have included each of these articles because they are thought-provoking and they motivated me to check out the Scriptures for my own. I pray you'll be motivated to do the same!
