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 godly woman and world-renowned Christian leader. On today's edition of Family Talk, Florence explains that our words should be like silver boxes with bows on top. Proverbs 18:21 says, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."
