“My Tongue: The Pen of My Heart” from Christian Faith Publishing author Jonnie Monaco is a probing book of insights and short essays about the awesome power inherent in a person’s words and how the tongue, the most character-defining part of a person’s body, can lead one down the path of destruction or even save a life—something that Jesus and the apostles knew very well.

“My Tongue: The Pen of My Heart”: a stirring meditation on the consequences of what people say. “My Tongue” is the creation of published author Jonnie Monaco, a loving mother of four grown children who has served the Lord in various capacities over the years, including as church treasurer, prison minister, hospital/home prayer volunteer, and Bible class teacher.

Monaco shares, “How many times have our mouths gotten us into trouble? We carelessly voice a few idle words. The words just seem to hit our brain and roll out of our mouth. We might say something harsh that hurts someone, or we may just be speaking idle words in jest. In either situation, it is almost certain that most people are simply not aware of the power and effectiveness of the words they speak.
Many times we will just start talking, saying words and phrases that would be better left unsaid. I know that I have been guilty of not thinking before I speak. I have spoken words that have hurt people, and I am sure I have even angered a few people with the words spoken from my mouth!
This type of thing does happen and will happen when we don’t take the time to think about what we are saying.
‘He that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding’ (Prov. 17:28, KJV).”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jonnie Monaco’s new book is an engrossing, thoughtful series of short essays that stem from the core concept to touch on topics such as the relationship of the tongue with the heart and the mind; implications of speech on past, present, and future; God’s Living Word; and how something as deceptively simple as word choice can make all the difference in one’s experience of life.

Monaco invites the reader to sit still and listen—and come away not just with a greater awareness and a more careful tongue but also a sharper, more empathetic ear and an enlightened heart.
