“This is a book that everyone should read multiple times during their lives. The tongue can be so useful, but also so destructive. When I first went through the book it was interesting to see which ‘tongues’ I spoke with the most. It’s a great reminder to be intentional and uplifting with our words.”

This book did wonders for me!

“This book has been for a jump start to a much needed revival of my devotional time, and spiritual walk. Many thanks to the author for her obedience to the Holy Spirit’s inspiration to write this powerful epistle to the Body of Christ.”

“A friend recommended 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue. It has truly made me think before speaking. I wish everyone would read this book.”

“I carry this book with me faithfully. Not only does she describe the various tongues, she explains why we resort to this kind of behavior. Thank you for printing a very necessary book for young and old.”

“I have enjoyed 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue, Emergency Prayers, and Supreme Confidence. I have been blessed by them all. Deborah keep allowing God to use you because these books are a blessing God’s people! I also purchased 30 Days to Taming Your Finances and 30 Days to Taming Stress and I am looking forward to reading those also.”

“I read this book initially in one day because each tongue’s description showed me I had work to do. I keep the book with my study materials and frequently reference it as a personal inspiration to rise to the next level. Doing so has raised my tongue consciousness. I am purchasing this book for friends and relatives.”

“I really enjoyed reading 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue by Deborah Smith Pegues. It was filled with so much everyday wisdom that we don’t put into practice until it is upfront and in your face. Thank you for opening my eyes again to that which is so simple but rarely used.”

“I received this from my sister and what a blessing this book has been! Some of the chapters really pierced my heart and made me take a long, hard look at what I was saying to people. I recommend this to everyone. Blessings to Debra Pegues!!”

“I take 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue with me everywhere. This is the best $5.99 I’ve EVER spent! I use it to teach my 7 and 8 year olds how to treat and talk to each other.”

“In today’s society, people feel they have the freedom to speak as they please. The book 30 Days to Taming your Tongue reveals in detail how God looks at what we say. It’s very obvious that Deborah was guided by the Holy Spirit while writing this book. This book has made me see that my tongue is bouncing in everyway and why it’s like that. Sometimes we really fail to see that promises or curses come from our mouth. This book has added deep insight into who I really am and it will guide me to who I will become. That is, a true child of God. One step at a time. Thanks Deborah for sharing this book.”

“The book is awesome and very helpful. It has truly been a blessing to me. I’m a workshop facilitator and I have conducted workshops using this book. I have tried to retire the workshop but different women’s ministries contact me to conduct the workshop at their churches.”

“This book has been a jump start to a much needed revival of my devotional time and spiritual walk. Many thanks to the author for her obedience to the Holy Spirit’s inspiration to write this powerful epistle to the Body of Christ.”

“This book is fantastic! We all need more discipline with our tongues. It has caused me to begin memorizing scripture in the areas of my weakness regarding my tongue. I have bought this book for others including my Pastor, and am going to ask him to preach a series on this book! This book is truly a gift from God. Thank you Deborah for following through on the assignment given to you by God to write this great book!”

“This book is great and I strongly believe it guides daily life in office, home and elsewhere.”

“This book is terrific, and will be utilized in both church and military chaplaincy training. It compliments both Scripture, and the military ideals of the ‘officer and gentlemen or lady’ concept. In short…the book is stellar!”

“This is a must have book next to having the Bible. I purchased this book months ago and it has been such a blessing, that I purchased 8–10 more to give to friends. You will definitely find out which ‘Tongue’ or ‘Tongues’ you’re operating in. I carry it with me everywhere and will pull it out with quickness on my friends.”

“This book will revolutionize your life! Even entire congregations would benefit from doing this fast together.”
P. Bunny Wilson, author and speaker

“This book is an invaluable guide packed with wisdom on thinking before you speak. Read it!”
Judge Mablean Ephraim, Divorce Court TV

“This book is the most directed, clearly written and forward to the truth of taming the tongue.”
Lisa Gonzalez Jons, Realtor–Investor

“Recently I purchased three class sets and began offering writing prompts to my reading students from portions of Deborah’s 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue. Her guided lessons offer brief, no-nonsense approaches for examining our own words and ultimately lead to thinking more seriously about lifelong attitudes and behaviors reflected by spoken thoughts—and, more importantly, their long lasting ramifications. My students find Deborah’s approaches to ‘taming the tongue’ particularly appealing as they deal regularly with ‘the tongue beast.’ Through collaboration, role play and writing exercises, I have witnessed Deborah’s positive influence on America’s youth on a daily basis! What promise this brings to upcoming generations!”
