    Crash the Chatterbox

    Monday, October 29, 2018

    I am sure as a pastor’s wife you have come across those people that you would call a “Chatterbox.” We all have experienced those type of people.

    But have you ever thought about the devil being the “Chatterbox” that you listen to in your head? Or the voices of an abusive person who has told you horrible things about yourself or done horrible things to you and you believe those lies.

    I recently had a book recommended to me that I would like to share with you today Crashing the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick. The subtitle is: “Hearing God’s Voice Above All Others.” We need to learn to debunk the lies and believe God’s truth about ourselves. I believe this book is one we should all have in our library.

    Here is a description:


    In Crash the Chatterbox, Pastor Steven Furtick focuses on four key areas in which negative thoughts are most debilitating: insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement. He asks, “What great deeds are in danger of remaining undone in your life because of lies that were planted in your past or fears that you are looming in your future?”

    With personal stories, inspiring examples, and practical strategies, Pastor Furtick will show you how to silence the lies and embrace the freeing affirmation of God.

    Learn how to live out God’s truth no matter what is going on in your life or thoughts. Learn how to crash the chatterbox…and hear God’s voice above all others.

    Includes discussion questions for individuals or groups.

    We are God’s piece of work, and need to always work at allowing Him to crash the chatterbox and believe the truth!

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
