Many women are wired to control. Youre the ones who make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time.
But trying to control everything can be exhausting, and it can also cause friction with your friends and family.
This humorous, yet thought-provoking book guides you as you discover for yourself the freedom and reward of living a life out of control, in which you allow God to be seated in the rightful place in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, Let It Go will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust.
A companion video-based study for small groups is also available.

What I got was a book which seemed to bash woman particularly homemakers for being too controlling and being sarcastic about it with many examples. This could have been written to be encouraging and helpful, but instead it was a lot of the author putting her spin on things with way too many examples in her life, but felt like she was not for real. She would say she would do this or that, but it seemed she was just saying it but not believing that she at all really made mistakes. Definitely not for someone who has already raised their children, or for someone really looking for great truthful kind ways to help women raising their children. Very disappointed.
marinaGAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5an in depth look at the issues with over controlJuly 10, 2014marinaGAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I, 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.

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.
