LET. IT. GO. How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith
By Karen Ehman
Foreword by Candace Cameron Bure
Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals prepared, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into the weakness of being a slight—or all out—control freak! This humorous, yet spiritually practical book will help you to:
- Take control of your schedule yet welcome interruptions from God
- Draw the line between mothering and micromanaging
- Influence your husband instead of manipulating him
- Learn to control your emotions when you can’t control the circumstances
- Stop pursuing the appearance of perfection and start pursuing the person of God
NOTE: A 6-week teaching DVD and Bible Study guide is also available for group and individual use.
(PS now through the end of November, it’s 25% off from Proverbs 31 Ministries!)
What others are saying:
“Especially written for wives and mothers who try to control everyone and everything around them (believe me, I get this!), Let. It. Go.offers solid advice, wise counsel, and a healthy dose of humor. Full of why-to and how-to suggestions, plus helpful tools to measure what needs fixing, Karen Ehman’s book goes right to the heart of the issue: ‘are we trying to be godly or are we trying to be God?’”
Liz Curtis Higgs, author of The Girl’s Still Got It
“If ever there was a book tailor made to hit at the heart of a woman’s struggle with control, this is it. I found myself shaking my head in agreement even though I wouldn’t have classified myself as a control freak. But boy did I have a lot to learn. Not only does Karen challenge us on this important issue, she equips us to find the peace we crave as we learn to practically “Let It Go.”
Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times Bestselling Author of Made to Crave and Unglued and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
And, you might just win a Kindle Fire for participating!
Do you often have Norman Rockwell-like expectations about the holidays — the decorations, the food, the gifts, the activity — laden schedule, the family get-togethers?
There are many areas where women want to exert control ensuring the perfect yuletide season. What if we learned instead to let go of unrealistic expectations and embrace an “out-of-control” Christmas this year: relaxing and relating in a peaceful manner while letting others offer input and ultimately allowing God to call the shots?
This five-day challenge will allow Christmas to go from chaos to calm as you learn to control what you should and trust God with what you can’t. The result? Less stressing and more blessing! Details at www.karenehman.com
