Let It Go: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith
By: Karen Ehman
ISBN #: 031033392X
Have you ever had a difficult time letting something go? Did that something just nag at you over and over just tempting you to take charge? With our many responsibilities and pressures in any given day letting go just doesn’t seem possible and definitely not easy to do. Karen Ehman addresses the topic of controlling every little thing in our lives and introduces ways in which we can enjoy our lives and not turn into ‘control freaks’ in this book.
Mrs. Ehman points out ways in which we can change controlling behavior within our relationships and other areas of our lives. She also helps the reader with quizzes at the end of some chapters that are designed to help the reader identify areas in which they may exude controlling style behavior. This author writes with clarity and silly humor. I found it helpful that she shared her own struggles with controlling behavior and her ‘Aha!’ moments of self-realization on her own journey to changing her controlling habits, which are encouraging to the reader.
Overall, I recommend this book. Whether or not controlling behavior pertains to you, I found that this read was insightful.
