Product Description

The tongue can be difficult to tame—but we will be judged by the words we use. In this talk, popular youth speaker John Hilton discusses different kinds of language, including both negative language (gossip, criticism, vulgarity) and positive language (honesty, integrity, compliments). In the strength of the Lord we can control the things we say and bless others with the words we use.

I'm so grateful to all the men and women who work so hard to provide these resources for us!! (To the previous reviewer, this is how they earn a living. They have to support their families.) I loved this talk by Brother Hilton. It helped our entire family!

15 Talks All LDS Teens Need to Hear....
By , Submitted on 2017-03-05

I found this on Pinterest and was completely excited because I have a teen daughter who is struggling and I'm desperate for some help and solutions... But clicking the link it sends me to lds living where I thought I'd find the talks because they all suited what my daughter needs to hear write now, only to find out that it's linking you to Deseret Book to purchase the talk for 7.99, which saddens me.... Why is everything about money instead of just sending you over to a talk that can help out our teens... It's frustrating to say the least... You have 15 talks at 7.99 a piece would be incredibly pricey, there is no way I can afford this... It saddens me that we just can't find good resources without charging an arm and a leg...
