They say that on average women talk three times as much as men. In fact, we speak about 13,000 more words than them each day. An average man will speak 7,000 words while his wife will speak 20,000.1
Keep in mind that this is only an average. I probably speak about 60,000 words/day and Michael speaks 10.
Just to give you an idea of how many words that is, the average paperback book has 50,000 words in it. So if you’re an average talker, you’d be filling up half a book all on your own. Every day.
If you’ve ever read a powerful book, then you know the potential affect it could have on your life. Now imagine the affect you have on the lives of others around you. Each day is an opportunity for the next chapter to be more powerful and encouraging than the last.
A good book can inspire you and motivate you to grow. And if it’s a really good book you might not want to put it down. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to be that kind of book!

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
