About the Book
I’m Darryl Winters and I have it made. I’m the best player on the best high school basketball team in the state, my two best friends are also my teammates, and I am absolutely killing it with the ladies. Seriously: I’m dating the hottest player on the girls basketball team and the head cheerleader at our school is constantly giving me looks, too. And it’s only a matter of time until the college acceptance letters start flooding my mailbox, all of them stuffed with huge scholarships. My only problem? My parents won’t leave me along about the words coming out of my mouth.
I truly believe I have the right to say what I want, how I want, and when I want. But is this the right feeling to have? Is it safe to have this feeling? The majority of religions teach that whatever words we say, we have to face the consequences of them. Is it true that if I speak bad words, bad will come back to me? The majority of religions say that the words that a tongue produces can determine life or death. Are words sharp enough to be used as a weapon? Can the words I say be powerful enough to cause my death?
About the Author
My name is K. Countz. When I wrote this book, I was 31 years old. I am a graduate of Calera Christian School and Jacksonville State University. There I majored in Recreational Leadership with a minor in Sociology. After graduating from college in 2010, I could not find a job in my field, so I became a substitute teacher. I would substitute at high schools and special needs classes. No one really liked working in those classes, but I did. Two years later, I became a Special Needs Aide. I began to attend Bible College and have small group sessions about the Bible in 2013. That is where I started to have a better understanding of the Word of God, the Holy Bible.
In 2016, I got a job as a nanny, so I left my hometown. Leaving my hometown helped me to realize there was more to me than I thought I was. I began to travel, searching for opportunities between Texas and California. I would go to different auditions and try out for different projects. Out of all my trying, I was only blessed with one opportunity so far.
One day as I was praying on what I needed to do, I heard God tell me to write. At first I was shocked because writing is something I am not fond of. Plus I did not know what to write about. Then He directed me to the word “tongue.” I did a little research and now I have wrote a story about it. I pray this message help you, like it has helped me.
