I, as most women, and people for that matter, love control, love to give my opinion, and most of all love when things go MY way; and of course, i also love seeking after Gods heart and his ways. i bought this book on a whim, as i am well aware of my love for control and thought it may teach me something helpful. this book is great, it really challenges you and makes you think. it provides great examples and scriptural backup for most every point it goes on to prove. the book also provides checkpoints in which it gives you quizzes to help gauge where you are, or questions to give you material to meditate upon. the only thing I wish was made more known to me when i was buying this book is that this book is specifically targeted at moms and family women, which made me unable to relate to a few places in the book, however, i still reaped huge benefits from reading this book as a younger, single woman.
I purchased this study for our Ladies Small group and we are learning a lot. For anyone who has "control issues", or even if you don't, this study is very informative and thought provoking. I would highly recommend this study.
Ok, so Let.It.Go by Karen Ehman is a book I received a couple months ago from Zondervan to review.
And I will be honest at first I did not know what to make of the book. The beginning was slow for me and hard to stay interested in. However I decided to skip ahead to the second part of the book (the book is broken down into parts and chapters). And AT LAST the meat and potatoes of the book! I'm not an overly controlling person, which maybe part of the reason why the book was initially such a hard read. I'm more of a negotiator so that everyone gets what they want within reason.
My recommendation? Read it if you think you fall into the controlling category or have been accused of being controlling. Read it if you want to learn something about yourself. For me, the learning process was in the second part, for you it could be in the first or third.
