Publisher's Description

God's Loving Invitation to Women--to "Rest" Rather Than to Control"I meant well. I only wanted to fix things--and people. I thought it was my duty to keep my husband on-track and to keep our children from making mistakes and getting hurt. I wanted to keep our friends healthy and happy. And I was concerned about keeping our spiritual leaders wise."But somehow in the process I ended up taking the burden of our world upon my own shoulders. I often made the mistake of believing that my will for those I loved must be their highest good. And that is where I began to go amiss, to lose my peace--and to cause unhappiness and conflict for others. I was caught in the control trap."Sound familiar?Being in control is a human way of feeling secure, getting problems "solved," getting things done "right." But God has called women to a life of trust and ever-increasing faith, free of debilitating emotions and out-of-balance relationships. It is possible to spiritually break through the control problem and to trust in a Father who never disappoints, who holds the whole world in His hands.The results are transforming!

    God has used this book to bring healing into all areas of my life. The author points you to God and prayer. Amazing. The most on point book about control and why we do what we do.

    This book changed me, my life, my marriage and my relationship with my adult daughters. I counsel with women regularly, and this is the first book I give them to read. It is filled with truth! It's scary and challenging. We did it as a women's Sunday School class over a year ago, and women still tell me how it impacted their lives. Great stuff if you're "in the driver seat".
