Calling all women who like to be in control!

(Okay, that is a call for most women!)

I’m giving away two copies of a book you will love…Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman.

I love author and speaker Karen Ehman.  I wrote about her weight loss story about weighing and praying in my book 31 Days to a Younger You.  Karen is authentic and funny.  She understands the many pressures that today’s woman faces.  She herself is a busy homeschooling mom, author, speaker, cook, chaperone, driver, and wife.  She gets it.

In her newest book, Let. It. Go. How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith, Karen gives us a guide to live “out of control.”

What???

That’s right…you will be encouraged to allow God to be in the driver’s seat of your life.  After all, isn’t trying to control everything in your life exhausting and many times, useless?

She writes,

While our personalities and methods may vary, our goal is often the same.  And I’d wager that at the root of our problem are exactly the same two issues I unearthed while confined to my sofa of sickness (during her pregnancies):

1.  We want to feel indispensable.

2.  We want to get our own way.

…We must be trained to embrace this dichotomy of a truth:  in order to get a grip, we have to let go.

So sit tight, sister.  Together we’ll learn to discern a crucial life skill:  how to control what we should and trust God with what we can’t.

Isn’t that good?  This books isn’t about shirking all your responsibilities.  It’s about handling what you can and giving to God the things that are beyond your control (and how to tell the difference between these two things).

To enter to win Karen’s book Let. It. Go., simply leave a comment with your email address and one area that you are struggling to control.  Two winners will be chosen on Wednesday.

Circumstances are beyond human control, but our conduct is in our own power.

-Benjamin Disraeli, British statesman, 1804-1881
