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…
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?
