Words of Kindness, Source of Healing

Dr. James Dobson
Florence Littauer
The late Florence Littauer grew up with her family in three small rooms behind her father's general store during the Great Depression. She vividly remembered once overhearing a customer tell her mother, "It's a shame there's no hope for your children!" Thankfully, Florence's father, who had the gift of encouragement, built her up into a great woman and world-renowned Christian leader. Proverbs 18:21 declares that "Life and death is in the tongue." On this edition of Family Talk, Florence explains that our words should be like silver boxes with bows on top.
