"I love Christin Ditchfield's voice! On the platform. On the radio. In the pages of this book. Like the music of a gifted artist whose heart pours through the talented play of his or her instrument, Christin's heart pours skillfully through the words of this book, inviting us to use words well for God's glory and our joy. Digging deeply into the words of women of the Bible and the women of history, Christin renews our attention to one of the most important things about usthe way we use our power and freedom to speak to others. She calls us to something greater than freedom of speech: the honor of speech. How are we using words to show the love and majesty of God, to give a healing touch to others? How are we refraining from using words that are critical or useless? In today's world of word-overload, Christin challenges every woman to handle words like weapons, with great care, and like jewels, to adorn the lives of others."See All

Women have A Way with Words. A woman's strength, influence, and ability to change the world for better—in every season and in every relationship—lies in the words she speaks each day. But with that God-given power comes the need to use it wisely, and this book provides both biblical and practical guidance to that end.
In A Way with Words, author and veteran speaker Christin Ditchfield challenges women to embrace God's gift of words and to think carefully about how they use it. She looks at twelve timeless principles as she calls all women to examine their hearts, recognize when words are their "weapon of choice," and learn how to steward this blessing to bring life, healing, and encouragement. Each chapter includes wisdom from influential women throughout history and a Bible study for individuals and small groups.
