2 Book Giveaway of ~ Let.It.Go ~ by Karen Ehman

This is my friend Karen Ehman.  I haven’t shared a lot about our budding friendship on my blog – but this year – this woman has been my lifesaver.  As I’ve dipped my toe for the first time into the publishing industry, this veteran author has been with me every step of the way.  She has mentored me, pointed out my writing flaws – like too many – dashes – and my bad habit of getting so excited!!!! And using too many exclamation points!!!! Those are fine for blogging – but not good for book writing. lol!!! (can’t use lol in a book either :( …oh and can’t make those smiley faces! This book writing thing is really cramping my style! lol!)

We have spent countless hours on the phone talking – we always start out talking about “business” and somehow end up on tangents talking about homeschooling, theology, and our issues with the scale!

The original way I discovered Karen was through her blog.  Karen is my favorite “life management” author.  This chick has got her stuff together! You might remember my video from earlier in the month where I shared “My Christmas Planner“…the planner was the brain child of Karen (and her co-author LeAnn).  She has literally helped this mama, whose to-do list is way too long, manage Christmas without spazzing out! lol!

Karen is the wife to her college sweetheart and mother of three.  She’s the Director of Speakers for Proverbs 31 Ministries’ national speaking team.  A five-time author, her books include A Life That Says Welcome, The Complete Guide to Getting and Staying Organized (if you don’t have this book and feel unorganized - you need it!), Untangling Christmas and more.  She has been a guest on The 700 Club, Moody Midday Connection and Focus on the Family.  She is also a contributor to Focus on the Family’s Thriving Family Magazine and you can find her blogging daily over at www.KarenEhman.com

So let me unveil her Brand New Book published by Zondervan that also has a DVD series and Study Guide available if you want to do this with a group of friends (I so recommend this!!!)

 Drum Roll Please…


Let.It.Go. ~ How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith

Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into the weakness of being a slight—or all out—control freak! This humorous, yet spiritually practical book will help you learn how to control what you should, trust God with what you can’t, and more importantly, decide which one is which! Join Karen Ehman, a recovering control freak, as she enables you to:

  • Draw the line between mothering and micromanaging
  • Influence your husband instead of manipulating him
  • Take control of your schedule yet welcome interruptions from God
  • Learn to control your emotions when you can’t control the circumstances
  • Stop pursuing the appearance of perfection and start pursuing the person of God

I was given a copy of the book but I purchased my own DVD and study guide on Amazon today!  A birdie told me that my husband and I are mentioned in one of the videos – so this I gotta hear – right?

Karen is giving away two copies of Let.It.Go. to two Women Living Well Readers this week! 

To enter to win 1 of 2 copies - simply leave a comment on this post.

For Bonus Entries: Retweet, Facebook Share or Pin this post and then leave an extra comment for each thing you did. 

This giveaway ends Saturday, November 17th at 9pm.

  62. If I didn’t know better I would think you wrote this book for me! I guess in a way you did :) Being the mom of a beautiful 3 year old daughter with special needs, I am faced with challenges everyday. Most of them are fighting to get her equipment, therapy and other necessities. Around every corner is someone telling us that these things are not “medically necessary”, eventhough they have never laid eyes on her and have no idea of her limitations. This is where I step in and fight with myself about how much I can control and how much I need to leave to God and his time. I have become a pro at giving it all to God, only to take it all back again.

    Even if I don’t win one of books, I would/need to get my hands on one. Thank you for all you do!!

I frequently find myself overwhelmed trying to get my kids (2 teenagers) where they and myself need to be.

  206. Nicki Peoples says:

    So I finally got my Christmas planner together and am using it – upside down and backwards, but still functional. I bought zippered pouches at the dollar store, so only two of the three holes actually fit in a standard 3 ring binder… but they still work ;). I have recommended Untangling Christmas to at least 2 clerks at stores and several friends, too. That said, I think I need a copy of this book, too!

  207. I hope I win one of the books, it sounds like information I really, really need to know. If I don’t win, I will definitely have to buy a copy. Blessings to you. Alba

  212. Kim Domras says:

    I struggle with feeling disorganized and have difficulty staying organized once I’ve made progress. I also struggle with the sin of perfectionism and I have been praying for God to help me learn to let some things go and be more dependent on Him and less on myself. I believe this book could really be a benefit to me and my family.

  213. This book sounds wonderful. I do love Christmas, but honestly the last few years it has really been a big stressor! And I am a pretty organized person!

  214. Thanks for this opportunity. I would love to share with my Bible study group .

  215. This book.couldnt come at a better time for me!! I already preprdered it but i have several friends i could gift it to for sure! Cant wait!

  216. Wow! This book is an answer to my prayers. I have praying for God to show me how to stop trying to control my life and have the strength to wait on him. The circumstances in my life have been such that it has created a control freak. I think out of the desire to protect my children from the events. Doing this I lost my ability to rely on God. I can not wait to read this book.

  217. I would love to win this book. The subject is one I struggle with from time to time. Thank you for your blog!

  218. Posted this page to my FB page i know of many ” helicopter moms and wves” who would benefit!

  219. Karen Grove says:

    Not sure how to let go, in a blended family with many broken promises and 2 step children that have absolutely defied my desire and efforts to love, guide, discipline and nurture, our home is chaos. Do I let go of my Biblical principles in trying to raise God fearing children (my two are still eagar to follow) or do I let go of trying to be their mom.
    One hurting mom who needs this, something anything.

  220. Letting go of perfectionism – would love more on this one…

  221. This looks great :)

  222. Definitely need help in learning to Let. It. Go. !!
    (and I like dashes, exclamation points, smilies, and abbreviations too!!) :D

  223. My son moves pictures on our walls sometimes to remind me everything can’t be perfect all the time, lol. Thank you so much for this giveaway.

  224. just shared on facebook!!!

  226. How to welcome those interruptions by God? You mean WITHOUT trying to finish what I’m doing or get just one…more…thing…done? Of course, when I try to finish what I was doing (which is often), I forget that God captured my thoughts for a moment, and the moment is lost. I’m really interested in reading about how to welcome God in my busyness.

    That image of being sick and not able to do even the littlest thing around the house so reminded me about my own period of illness and recovery…and showed me how I still pray for God to make me all well so I can mop my own floors.

    Thank you. Will be reading and letting go (like my husband has repeatedly asked me to do, becau seh does not care about who mops the floor as long as it gets done – strange fellow LOL)

    In this season of my life, I am feeling The Lord leading me to let go of more…more stuff, more activities, and more control. This book sounds like it will meet me where I am at. I want to lead a life that nurtures my sweet husband and children and encourages other mamas, as well as young women, toreally relish their lives and who Christ intended them to be.

  281. Would love to win this book. It is my intent to stop the cycle of control that has been a pattern for generations in the women in my family. I have two daughters and want so much more for them.

  282. This book looks great! Thanks for the opportunity!

  283. I would love to have this book! Last night I was praying and asked God to help me “Let Go” of things I can’t control and the harmful emotions I feel toward circumstances that are in my everyday life!! This sounds just right for me.
    Thank you Karen and Courtney

Some days I don’t succeed but Praise God He’s forgiving and so is my husband. :)

  363. Nicole Canfield says:

    This book sounds like it can be very informative to all of us women.

  364. I have learned to “Let go and let God.” Although I am still guilty of trying to control somethings. I am not OCD by any stretch, I just want to know what’s next and what I need to do to get it done and lined up! Not trying to do the Lord’s job for Him, I just want to make it easier…BUT our job is to just breathe and know that Jesus has got this and He is directing our steps.

  365. As a young wife and mom, this is something I struggle with daily! Trying to let it go, and Let GOD be who He is.

    I tweeted this post!

  448. Let Go and Let God… Where do I start? Every morning I wake with the best of intentions but unfortunately I am so set in my controlling ways that many days I barely get a few hours into my day and I have turned my back on that great and wonderful gift He is giving me new every moment of the day. He is so faithful no matter how many times I turn away in a given day.

    and decisions are weighing my shoulders down.
    To add that am pursuing a BA as a full time student, have
    A special needs little girl that just started kindergarten
    As a 5 year old, life gets too weary at times and as my husband
    puts it, I micromanage and get a bit “rough” to deal with.
    Am sure I am in need of ” talking thing out” as we’ll as reading
    / listening to guidance I understand your book is full of.
    I’d appreciate a copy. Thank you for what you do. Irma

    I think that this would be a great book for me (AND for many of my friends!). Thank you for offering this!

  488. Oh wow!!! I so need this book. I do NOT know how to let things go, meaning, I stress too much of the time because I cant seem to let things stay undone.

    Yup, another yes on my to work on list, Stop pursuing the appearance of perfection and start pursuing the person of God
    Thanks so much for posting about this book as well as giving us an opportunity to win a copy. I am controlling and I”m one of those that likes to think I’m not controlling. (:

  548. Kim Thompson says:

    So excited about this book and Bible study.

  549. Hello, again! I posted yesterday evening and forgot to add something, i did share this to my facebook so others can see this book, with the title of the book let it go, I had an idea. If you have things that are troubling you and you need to give it to God, let it go, why not make a “Give it to God” or “Let it go” box, you can make it out of a shoe box, decorate it any way you like, make a slit in the top, write down on a piece of paper what you need to “let go” of and put it in the box and give to God!

  550. Becky Iliff says:

    One thing that is really hard it to Let It Go so this would be a great read. I think that is the hardest thing about being a mom and your children growing up and you don’t have any control. Looking forward to reading this… even if I don’t win will go to amazon.com.

My sister in law is struggling with alot of things – the most recent is she will need to have heart valve replacement surgery and she continuously tells me “I just need to give it to God but I can’t” – she feels a desperation to hang onto what is tangible and real if she can see it. I would love to give her this gift and let her have her time with God and see the real blessings she will receive if she believes He will take care of her and her heart. Blessings with your Ministry and thank you for the daily sharing. Erika

    Oops – don’t think it posted…I tweeted it too:


  604. I am a mother/grandmother and most of all friend to all. I am requesting the free copy of this book “Let.It.Go.” after listening and looking it over I really believe my daughter Pam needs to have this book. She is a Mother of 7, well you might as well count her husband and make it a total of “8″…she is a fine christian woman, who sometimes I think she is overwhelmed with each day the Lord has given her. She took me for my Cataract Surgery and the whole time kept saying …man a hour has past, or it is already 11 am…like hello I need to get home to my children…20, 19, 17, 14, 13, 12, and 8…before my husband gets home…! But such wonderful christian children…was in Claires at the mall with my grandaughters and one of their friends said “why are you asking her what she thinks of those earrings?” She replied “she raised my mom didn’t she”…(I must admit I was proud of her). So please allow me to give this book to my daughter…to help her be guided in her walk as a mother, wife and friend! Thank you and God Bless!

  605. Can’t wait to read the book!!!

  606. Joyce Olmstead says:

    As momma of 5 and grandma of 18, I’m in need of organization, and keeping things at Jesus’s feet- without thinking I need to “be there” for everyone. Joyce

  665. I struggle daily with letting it go and letting God. I am the type of person that tries to fix or control most (not all) situations and alcoholism in the family is one I can’t. It is very hard to stay seated on the sidelines. Your blog and blogs like this are tools in my journey of letting it go and getting closer to God. Thank you!

  666. I have struggled in this area a lot, matter of fact, cried on my way to work this morning. I am a full-time church secretary with two teenage boys and a husband that is self-employed. I feel like I have to control everything (or it won’t be done right) or I feel guilty if I say no to anything, so of course I volunteer for almost everything, especially at church. I have a blog and it seems I have at least one post per year about the “delicate balance” of juggling work, home, church, family…the list goes on and on. I hope I can receive this resource so I can quit being so bossy and not so overwhelmed.

  667. Sarah Hamilton says:

    This is definitely a tough issue for me. I like to have things planned out and prepared specially when it comes to my family and sometimes well a lot of times God has to remind me, “excuse me Hope you are not in control”. Every time I step back and His plan unfolds it is always 10 times better than my plan ever could have been! Thanks Courtney for all you do.

  681. This book sounds like a great resource. I know a few other ladies at my church who have expressed their struggle struggle with control I i hope I win so this book can make the rounds!

    I enjoy Karen’s blog and I loved the eBook Untangling Christmas that she co-authored with LeAnn Rice. I would love to win a copy of this book, but if I don’t I will be purchasing it because I can’t wait to read it and participate in the study.

    I don’t have/use Facebook or Twitter or any other social sites, but I have still been telling others about this book via good old-fashioned word of mouth and email.

  702. I shared this on Facebook.

  703. How much should we let go without becoming complacent? What if our kids grow up to be too “laid back” because we let things go in the wrong areas? Balance is what is needed. Sounds like this book would supply much needed words of wisdom for me.

  704. What an incredible opportunity to win this book. Thank you for thinking of all of us! I certainly suffer from control freakitis.

  707. I have entered every giveaway possible for this book because it is SO needed. I am a control freak with a capital C. I love Karen and have her other books so I know this will be great as well.

  708. I would be very interested in reading Karen’s book. I’ve just recently started following her via email.

  709. Sharing to FB and pinning to Pinterest. I know I need this book so much right now!

  710. I would LOVE to win a copy!

  711. Pinned!

  712. I would love to win this!!! I just started leading a ladies evening study and would be awesome for my next study!!

  713. Courtney, I cannot remember whether I connected with your blog through Karen or vice versa, but the honesty and wisdom I’ve received from you both has been a blessing to me this year.

    As a novice writer, I sure enjoyed your comments on your writing partnership with Karen. You have a great mentor. As someone who uses ellipses (…) too much and a tendency toward exclamation (!!!), I understand.

    I’d love to win Karen’s new book Let.It.Go.


  714. I just pinned this!

  715. Debbie Sparks says:

    Sounds like just the book I need.

  716. A lesson that I’ve been working on for years………………………LET.IT.GO!! I’m also a product of a mother who could not (and still can not ;) ) let it go. We are working on this together ~ what a wonderful way to share this through a book! Looking forward to reading it.

  717. Nicole Patteson says:

    This book would make a great gift idea too!

  718. I am so much looking forward to reading this book soon! Thanks for hosting it in a giveaway!

  719. This looks like a great book, thanks for the giveaway.

  720. I pinned this lovely giveaway to my Pinterest as well!

  721. I think this would benefit myself as well as my two daughters, sounds like a great book.

  722. Comment!

  723. Shared on Facebook!!

  724. I can’t wait to read this book. I have to tell myself everyday to Let It Go. Good luck to everybody!

  725. Oh brother….it’s like Karen wrote this book just for me. Maybe I’m not alone, huh?
    The topic is spot on for women who tend to run the show!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Wow there are over 1000 comments. Amazing! I think wanting and desiring to be in control was part of the curse. God told Eve that her desire would be for her husband. I believe it wasn’t for love but for control over her husband because it is what so many of us women struggle with. It is a battle for me and even when ai don’t want to be in control I find myself taking control.

      Please read this and count it as a comment even though it is a reply. I couldn’t find the end to post a comment. Great turnout. :)

  726. Just pinned it too!;)

  727. Sounds like a book I need to read!

  728. I would love to win this book – I think it might help with my desire to control everything, and my negative response when I can’t. :)

  729. I found this via Pintrest. It’s amazing how sometimes God can be subtle and sometimes he shoves it right in your face like “Get it now?”. The timing of this couldn’t be better. I get it now and this book has my name written all over it.

  730. I would love to win this book! I could really use this in my life right now.

  731. I shared on Facebook! I don’t have a Twitter account, though. :)

  732. I am so thankful for the work that you christian blogging ladies have done! You provide inspiration to women who are in need. God Bless,


  733. I think Karen is wonderful too! I’d love this book. I think it would relate to what I have to deal with now, getting out of crisis mode with my mental disorder.

  734. I shared it on my Pinterest page!

  735. I have facebooked

  736. Kris Freitag says:

    Sounds like a book I need to read….

  740. Elaine Segstro says:

    I so look forward to reading this book. It’s such a HARD thing for me to LET.IT.GO!! and let God !!

  741. I cannot wait to read this book! Also, Melissa Taylor will be doing a study of this book at the beginning of next year and I cannot wait to study it with her!

  742. I cannot wait to read this book!! Definitely need to let go of a few things but most importantly I need to let go of my children and let God continue his work in them and they move into adulthood. Scary thing!!

  743. This sounds like a really helpful book. I’d love to read it, then share it with the women around me!

  744. All my boys really want me to read this book!!!

  745. Oh boy, please encourage me with letting it all go. Recently, a shocking marriage crisis led me to realize how much i have manipulated, micromanaged and controlled my loved ones. I’ve learning now to wait on God and simply be loved by him- hopefully, it overflows to my husband and children.

  746. I loved ” A Life That Says Welcome” and would love to do this study with my girlfriends.

  747. Your Blogs help me EVERY day… wether it be dealing with the grief I still carry from the tragic death of my father or to simply just needing a pick-me-up while going thru the chaotic but oh so fun day raising my 3 year old granddaughter~ You are a BLESSING… Please keep up the AWESOME, POWERFUL, GOD FILLED work :-)

  748. Would love to get a copy of this book.

  749. Pnned this WONDERFUL opportunity~

  750. I posted this to both my facebook and Twitter ;-)

  756. I would love to win this book.

  757. Would love to win a copy!!!! Thanks!

  758. I would love a chance to win. I would share this study with the moms group that I lead in our church!

  759. Elsie Gregory says:

    This sounds like a great study tool for all the young moms in my life! Maybe for all of us ‘not so young’ ones too! :)

  760. I shared the book trailer on our moms group facebook page. I would love to use this study in our group.

  764. Would love to win this book!

  765. Pinned it!

  766. I am struggling with letting go of controlling my children. They do not need me to micromanage their lives…..I have to let go. I think this would be wonderful as a small group study to begin the new year with. I know plenty of other moms in the same boat with me. We often make resolutions to take control of weight, but not to learn to let go and let God!

  767. Stephanie R. says:

    Sounds like exactly what I need!

  768. I’m interested! This sounds like a great resource to share with gals at church and with my daughters.

  769. I would love to not have a ‘control freak’ attitude for many of the things I do in my life. I’m so signing up to win this :)

  770. This book sounds perfect for me! Hope I win.

  771. Just shared this on fb

  772. Good luck with writing a book this year!
    This books sounds like something I’m going to want to (or possibly not want to at times) read and work through.

  773. Pinned it too!! <3

  774. I would learn how to let it go. I am a person who has OCD and always has to be in control. Everything has to be perfect.

  775. Just shared on Facebook too!! :)

  776. I would love to win this book. I still struggle to walk by faith. I have pinned & retweeted about this amazing offer.

  777. I would love to LET. IT. GO. and let God. I truly need this in my life now more than ever.

  778. I am a new mom and have the awesome and new privelage of staying home with her. I have recently been disheartened by realizing how much of a ‘control freak’ I am. It leaves me overwhelmed and it is conditioning my husband not to offer his help because I don’t see the love in his help, only that he didnt do it ‘my way’. We are currently doing Rick Warren’s ’40 Days in the Word’ and one of the video devotions really resonated with me on ‘letting go’: ‘Freedom is losing control and learning to trust God’. The devotion was on Psalm 119:45: “And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts’. How I long to just let go and enjoy the freedom in trusting that God’s commandments are the guardrails to my freedom. Just follow His Word and know He’s got this. Realizing that while we were meant for perfection, the fall has made that impossible here on earth and finding joy in Jesus, not how clean my home is today or that my baby matches from bow to bib to socks. This book would be a huge blessing with what God is working on in my life. And hoping I don’t leave this legacy to my children as it lives on in me from my mother. Love your blog! It has been so great for me! (And family)

  779. Debbie Staffird says:

    Thank you for this opportunity to win this book. I know I have a lot to let go and let God! I’m hanging onto things that I know God is trying to pry from me. I would love to have this book to help change the things God is teaching me to let go of.

  780. My life often feels like a chaotic mess. I would love to win a copy of this book :)

  781. What a great resource! I’m familiar with Proverbs 31 Ministries and have listened to common speakers at various gatherings over the years. I am excited about what comes from the heart of someone who works with ladies that I KNOW hear and follow God every second of every day.

    The ladies at my church would LOVE this resource! We talk about some of these issues regularly!

  782. I have been anxiously waiting for this book to come out ever since Karen announced it 6 weeks or so ago.

  783. I pinned it!

  784. I shared on FB.

  785. I just shared this offer on my facebook wall as well

  786. I will certainly be ordering this book and dvd and then hosting a bible study in my home in January. This is such an important topic!

  787. Can’t wait to get this book – I didn’t know I was a control freak until I read the Christmas Challenge!

  788. Sounds like a fantastic book-I’d love to win!

  789. I shared this on Facebook…twice! Once with just the link and the other with the link to the video.

  790. This is a study I would love to go through.

  791. Heather Lee says:

    This Home-school mommy NEEDS this book. It sounds like right where I’m at in life and have probably trudged along through it’s entirety. I would be ever so appreciative if it is in God’s plans for me to win this. I will be sharing this on Facebook as well. Thank you!

  792. As a wife, mother and a pastors wife of a small church I am learning how to let things go. This is not an easy task for me since I always seem to have to fill in the gap at the church (when there are no enough volunteers), besides doing what I normally do as a pastors wife, and mother. As our kids are getting older I am learning to let go of the kids and learning my new roll as their mother. Our oldest is 22 has been in the military and now on his own. Our second oldest is 18 (still at home), next is 16 and the last one is 13… I am trying to find out who I am in all of these changes besides trying to find out where the ministry God has given me fits in. This is not an easy task, in fact its quite painful. This video series and book would not only help me but I would share this with the women of our church too!

  793. Looking forward to this book! :)

  794. Would love to win this and share with our Law Enforcement Officer’s wives group. We’re always looking for a good faith based book to study together.

  795. I really need to read this book! By the way…I use too many “…”‘s when I write and I also use lots of exclamation points!!! :)

  796. OOOO, this looks like a great book to read and I would be very intrested to looking into this book a little more.

  797. I love when these great books are also put into a bible study format. Can’t wait to use it with my ladies small group.

  798. This book sounds awesome!

  799. Stephanie O says:

    I would love to learn how to Let. It. Go.

  800. I am enjoying the Untangling Christmas planner, it sounds like this book will be of great benefit as well!!

  846. My mother-in-law, who passed away 3 months before my husband and I got married 25 years ago, had a banner that said, “Let Go, Let God”. Although it was/is VERY “70′s”, i.e., green background, white & pink felt letters & depiction of a human figure letting go of a balloon rising up to a white cloud, ALL in felt, I still have it…guess I don’t want to “let it go”, just so I’ll have it as a reminder to do just that! :D Maybe this book can be my new reminder! ;)

  847. Free book? Yes, please!

  848. I don’t tweet or pinterest, but I did fb share!
