Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Many women are wired to control. You're 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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Definitely a Book for Me! 10 marzo 2016
Di Dana Rongione - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I came across this book while searching for a book by another author, but as soon as I read the title, I knew it was a book I needed to read. I, like so many other women I know, struggle with letting go. With so much to do and so many responsibilities resting squarely on our shoulders, we women often act as if the entire world would crumble if we were to give up a single ounce of control. Besides, we're not doing such a bad job with this balancing act we call life. . . or are we? When we're stressed and frazzled, gloomy and grumpy, there's definitely a problem, and the problem is that we're trying to do everything, which simply isn't possible.

With a dash of wit and a sprinkle of personal experience, Karen Ehman tells it like it is in Let. It. Go.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith. She confesses to being a card-carrying member of Control Freaks Anonymous (an organization I know all too well) and explains how the Lord has taught her to let go and let God. I could relate to many of the situations Ehman referred to and learned some valuable lessons on how to release my white-knuckled grip on life and its many circumstances. Several things truly hit home with me, so much so that I jotted them down in my devotional journal so that I could remember and meditate on them. But I think the thing that hit me the most was this paragraph: "When we women try to be so on top of things--around the house, at work, in our marriages, in our parenting, and in community ventures--we think we're only taking our jobs seriously, performing our tasks with care, and carrying out the duties of our roles in a way that is excellent and thorough. So give us a break. We really are just trying to please God, right? I thought so. Sometimes I still think so. However, I happened upon a thought just a year or two ago that makes me wonder this: In attempting to be in command and control, are we trying to be godly or are we trying to be God?"

That statement was definitely an eye-opener for me because I was playing the "godly" card on a regular basis. I chalked up my overly-controlling habits to a strict adherence to the verse, "God is not the author of confusion." But, Ehman has a point--a point that will stick with me for years to come.

I definitely enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to any woman who struggles to let go of the control button and simply enjoy life.

5.0 su 5 stelle For the Control Freak 31 marzo 2014
Di Kristi R. Varner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
My small group Bible study bought this book to read, as well the video and study book.

Karen Ehman does a good job of making you ask yourself, "Does this REALLY matter? Will this affect eternity?" The best chapter in the book to me was the one about how we talk to our children and to others; when we're trying to control a situation and how our words can affect others.

Her conversational style of writing makes this book an easy read and very relatable.

I do not, however, recommend the video sessions or the study book that go with this text - they're kind of redundant. The book alone is great by itself.

The universal desire--however it might manifest itself--to control others and their impressions of us is the subject of Karen Ehman's new book Let. It. Go.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith. While Ehman has plenty of praise for industrious, well-organized, capable women who thrive in their homes and places of work, her objective is to help those same women identify the "miniscule line between being conscientious and being controlling" (17). Writing from an evangelical and complementarian vantage point, Ehman's objective is to offer biblical justification for loosening the reigns a little bit, as well as some practical steps we can take toward this goal.

Let. It. Go. has a number of strengths and two very critical flaws.

A perceptive and sensitive woman, Ehman is most helpful when, after dismantling the facades we wear, she analyzes our raw human impulses, particularly those that drive us to manipulate others and exert unhealthy levels of control over our environments. She refuses to make the overtly bossy, opinionated and loud woman bear the burden of representation for the all the control freaks out there, exposing, also, "the soft-spoken saint", "the enabler" "the martyr" and "the people pleaser" (20-21). She argues quite persuasively that controlling personalities come in many forms--and quiet, gentle and agreeable women are not necessarily exempt from her criticism. Her willingness to invite readers to reflect upon her own storehouse of fears, desires, insecurities and controlling impulses makes her a winsome and authentic voice--one from whom I think most readers will gladly accept instruction. She's also quite adept at illuminating the ways in which our unique cultural moment fuels our thirst for control by bombarding us with a plethora of choices as we make everyday decisions and by facilitating-- through technology and social networking--the endless comparisons we make between our lives and those of our friends and acquaintances.

In an effort to establish rapport with readers, Ehman writes informally and in a self-deprecating tone. While her sense of humor works well in some sections of the book, it detracts from her stated goals in others. It's clear that Ehman is passionate about communicating biblical truths to readers, yet the irreverent tone with which she often exegetes Scripture is problematic and distracting. For example, in the third chapter of the book, she examines the Fall in light of the theme of control. She alludes tangentially to scholarly debate surrounding precisely what kind of fruit God forbade Adam and Eve to eat and then writes, "My personal opinion? It was a deep, dark-chocolate, festive foil-wrapped, whack-open orange--the kind my hubby hides in the toe of my stocking on Christmas morning. That would have been the only fruit that stood a chance of tempting me!" (50). Other examples occur in chapter eight when Ehman is holding up Esther as a model of godly faithfulness which we ought to emulate. In recounting Esther's story, she refers to Mordecai as "Uncle Morty," and King Xerxes as "the hubster." She likens the narrative to "an ancient episode of The Bachelor" (160) and peppers her exegesis with exclamatory remarks like "Uh-oh," "gasp!" and "Double ouch" (158-160).

While I appreciate her efforts to make Scripture engaging and accessible to readers, I often felt patronized by her flippant tone, which threatened to belie her stated commitment to the authority of Scripture.

My second major criticism of Let. It. Go. deals with the book's theological foundation--or lack thereof. A book that admonishes women to "control what we should and trust God with what we can't" (23) absolutely must flesh out, as much as possible, the doctrine of God's sovereignty. In Ehman's defense, she does encourage readers by pointing to Scripture that demonstrates God's control over both creation and man's steps, but, since she never really addresses the idea of compatibilism, the relationship between man's responsibility and God's sovereignty gets a little muddled. For example, on page 155 she writes, "We can attempt to change our circumstances. Sometimes it works, but not always" and then, on the very next page, she writes, "It's God's job to determine our circumstances."

But, more troubling than her potentially confusing discussion of God's sovereignty is the complete absence of any gospel message in this book. There's hardly any mention of Christ Jesus at all, and the implications of his death on the cross and subsequent resurrection for believers are never discussed. When I find myself clamoring for control in my life, what ultimately gives me pause and quiets my heart is the knowledge that Christ has already taken care of my biggest problem--my alienation from God, a problem over which I had absolutely no control--on my behalf. Only with the knowledge that my most daunting existential crisis is already solved can I begin to relinquish the illusion of control I have over my life. Like the contemporary Christian song reminds us: "What heights of love, what depths of peace / When fears are stilled, when strivings cease."

I value Ehman's practical suggestions for managing my desire to control my surroundings. Her three little words "let it go" served as a helpful reminder. But without mention of three other crucial words--"It is finished"--I fear her book won't have nearly the impact that it could.

I enjoyed the study guide. It has a lot of good insight to gain, but you need the book to go with it, and the dvd. It makes it easier to follow along. I wish I would have known this from the beginning. The book isn't very bible based, and I miss reading my bible to follow along. I've gained a lot of useful knowledge, and I'm glad I did this bible study with my women's group.

This author rarely uses scripture.
I am currently in a Bible study using this book and I find it we don't have much depth to pull from.
Well I certainly agree with the concept that we should let things go and let God run the show of life, this author is average at her approach.
She even used a previous authors quote and didn't cite her🤔
I'm not impressed
