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.

Walk with the King,

    I think this would be a great resource. I also could greatly use this for myself, I have so much that I need to let go and give God.

    • Lindsey says

      Sorry, I had to post a reply because I couldn’t post a comment.

      Would love to read this and I have a friend whom I am sure would love to also!

      Pinned on Pinterest and shared on Facebook!

  2. Tessa Smith says

    I would love LOVE to win a copy!! And, I am right there with you on the excitement issue!!! ;) (and smileys, obviously!!!).

  3. Denise says

    Sounds like a really good and convicting read! And, yes, I know there are things in my life that I need to let go of!

  4. Katie says

    Have a huge control issue especially with my kids. I could really use Biblical perspective from someone who’s been there.

  5. Sharon says

    I think this would be a great resource to read and encourage other woman to get this book and read it together, like a book club or bible study. I would love to win it!

  6. Amber says

    Planning to start a small Bible Study at the beginning of the year. I think we will do this book! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Jennifer Shaw says

    Long story short, a family member sexually assaulted my daughter and I need help in letting go and giving it to God! Thank you for sharing this opportunity with us, who ever wins will put it to good use I’m sure! God bless!!

  8. Diane K. says

    Going through Divorce & single parenting , there are so many things mentally that I need to learn to Let Go , and Let God .

  9. Jeni Landreth says

    I am a control freak by flesh-nature, always have been. I am “newly” married (was 2yrs in August) and we just had our first child 9mths ago, so there have definitely been some new challenges to my “manage-it-all” approach to life. I really need to learn how to give it all to God and some guidance would be greatly appreciated! I’m glad and grateful God speaks to women like you, so you can share with women like me.

  10. Julie says

    Thanks for the giveaway. Have been reading both posts. Really enjoy them both!!!!
    Wishing everyone a stress free Christmas!

  11. Rachelle says

    I’m a new bride of 11 months with our 8 week honeymoon baby girl. I hope to “learn now” instead of “unlearn later.” :) I constantly remind myself that God is in control and I need to let go! This book would be a blessing. Thank you!

  12. Qiana DeBose says

    This book would be such a blessing to me right now !!!!! Being the wife of a Pastor I think this book would give me great insight in many areas !!!!!

  13. says

    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!!

    • Andra says

      This book would be a big blessing to me. I often struggle with trying to control everything instead of giving it all to God! Blessings!

  14. Lisa Matthew says

    I so need this book. I am always confused about whether I am actually stepping out on faith or on emothion. It is hard for me to tell the difference. Prayer keeps me.

  15. lisa says

    Be still and know that I am God! Why is it so hard???? I know this book will touch the heart of many, including myself. Thank you for the opportunity to be blessed by one!

  16. Judy B says

    Holidays are always a challenge, since we want everything perfect, whatever that looks like…would love the encouragement from your book!

  17. Mariam says

    My sister-in-law and I are eager to start this book as a bible study. There are many things we need to learn to let go, first with what societies expectations are of a women.

  18. Lisa V. says

    You two ladies look beautiful! Radiant joy! Thanks, would love to win Karen’s book. I’m a follower of her blog as well and I agree she’s great!

  19. Vicki Hesterly says

    No matter what age we are as women, this book sounds like it could be a good reminder of who we are as women in Christ. Would love to read it.

  20. says

    Just what this unorganized, recovering type A momma needs, especially with the holidays approaching. I would love a copy and then be able to donate it to the library where I am called to work.

  21. Jennifer Pennington says

    Looking forward to reading this book and would love to win a free copy. I know there are many times I need to let it go.

  22. Carrie P says

    I would love to win this book. It would really help my tendency to be a bit controlling and naggy! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  23. Rena says

    Love this title! This “let it go” is the theme of my life this year. I have really been moved by God to let go of things that are hindering me of achieving my purpose for Him. By releasing my “baggage”, I have really been able to see God use me in His kingdom!

  24. Amber Foshay says

    Hi Sweet Courtney! This sounds like a wonderful book club book! I’d love to win a copy to read!

    Thanks for the chance!

    ~Amber

  25. Jenny says

    Ok, just pinned it in Pinterest and shared it on Facebook!! Thank you for your generosity in giving away two free books! So kind!

  26. Emily says

    Would love to win this book. My control freak and perfectionist nature actually hinder my life more then help so I have a feeling this book would be a great read for me!

  27. Jackie says

    I have emailed this blog out also shared on facebook. I can’t wait to ready this book. There are so many things in my life that I dwell on. I can’t wait to just “Let It Go” Thank you for all your wisdom, inspiration and motivation. And helping me realize that I’m not the only woman out there that can’t do everything all the time. Thanks for all you do!!

  28. Tara says

    I just participated in Karen’s 5 day email challenge/intro to her book, WOW!!! So convicted but encouraged as well. Thanks for the give away.

  29. Sandra says

    I’ve actually never heard of this book before, but I think the concept sounds like it would be good for so many women. I think because we notice the details, we tend to want to control them. What God calls us to is something better. <3

  30. Heidi Boles says

    This past year has been full of disappointments and hurts for my family, and I have been trying to do exactly what the title of this book says: Let it Go. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do which means that I could definitely use some perspective from this book. Thanks for sharing!

  31. Martha Clements says

    Looks like it would be a great book for all women from single all the way to grandma’s. Thanks for writing about this subject

  32. Lucy says

    Ooohhh you gals have not the slighetest idea what you are doing,

    Lucy

  33. R Zigler says

    Thank you Karen!! I have just recently stopped working to be a work at home mom again. I am finding that it is exactly where I want to be. I frequently find myself overwhelmed trying to get my kids (2 teenagers) where they and myself need to be. I currently have 3 different businesses of my own and my husband commutes an hour one way everyday. I need help of letting things go and being okay with it!!

  34. Angel says

    I so could use this! There is so much I need to let go of and give up to the Lord. Only knowing the Lord for 2 years now I struggle daily with “This is my job I can fix this!!”

  35. says

    Ohhh I would LOVE to share this bible study with some of the woman at church! I’m guessing you won’t want to post it to me in Australia though. (I think I may need to buy that book about getting and staying organised though. Lol) thank you both for sharing your thoughts, feeling and faith with us all :)

  36. says

    Karen sounds like that Titus 2 modeler and wisdom possessor we all need in our lives.
    I’d love to hear this dvd….this wife of 1 and mom of 7 can use some advice.

  37. Kim says

    Courtney, I just discovered you yesterday. You are a true women of God. Thank you for being such an encouragement. I am excited to see The Lord use you in my life and others. Thank you…

  38. Karla H. says

    Would love towin this book! If I didn’t know better, I’d think she was writing about me! (I like exclamation points, too!!!!)

  39. Maria Hall says

    Would love to win one of these books! This is a subject I can definitely be blessed by as this is one of the areas God is diligently working with me on!
    I have shared this post on facebook, twitter and pinterest as well!
    May God bless you for offering THIS as a blessing to us!

  40. Beth M. says

    Karen is one of my favorite authors! I do agree that we all are dealing with control issues; I am trying to learn how to let go of past failures in order to move onto what God has in store for me. thanks for the chance to win this book. I know it will be helpful to all who read it!

  41. Stacie says

    I signed up for Karen’s 5 day challenge to Let. It. Go. for Christmas. Day one pushed me right outside of my comfort zone in such an awesome way!

  42. 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!

  43. Alba says

    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

  44. 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.

  45. Erin says

    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!

  46. Aubrey says

    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!

  47. Michele says

    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.

  48. 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.
    Blessings,
    Kareng

  49. Ellie says

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

  50. Penny says

    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.

  51. Becky says

    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.

  52. Steffanie says

    Ok, so I’m like the 245th person to comment, so there is like a one in a million chance I am going to win, but it is worth giving it a try! I need to go and buy the organization book! Thanks for doing this!

  53. Karen Proctor says

    Wow! Looks like an excellent book. I know there are many thing in my life where I could learn to just let it go!

  54. Lindsey says

    I love the ‘Women Living Well’ series!! I would love to have this book! I’m a mother of 3 children under 8 years old (set of twin boys)! Whew!!

  55. Diane says

    May God choose the person He feels needs to hear/read this book. Thank you ladies for being obedient and following what God has planned for you.

  56. Alaina says

    I will put this book on my Christmas list if I don’t win! Also I like the idea of the getting organized book…thanks for highlighting this important author!!

  57. Lynmara C says

    I would love to use this as a community bible study. There are so many moms that feel overwhelmed. I hope I can get a copy!

  58. says

    What a powerful message for me…everything in the description of this book rang true. Actually, my best friend and I are constantly being accused of micromanaging our families, and we are comparing notes on how to step back a bit for everyone’s peace of mind. I’d LOVE to learn more about how to let God manage control of my schedule, my image, etc. so I can take a break for a bit…

  59. says

    Obviously from all the comments, Karen has once again hit on a very much needed topic! I too feel like this book’s message is exactly what I need :) Thanks for the giveawaye!

  60. Godelieve says

    Thank you so much for showing us the book, after reading a sample I got myself a copy right away!

    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)

  61. jackie s says

    reading all of the previous comments just proves that this book needed to be written! (along with reading the best book, the Bible, of course:))

    would love to win one of the books – so glad that it is finished and ready to go!

  62. Sheila says

    Courtney I am sure you have been a star student for Karen. I have met several of the Proverbs 31 ladies and they are all amazing women. I would love to read this book.

  63. Lynda Duncan says

    Sounds like this would be a great small group study! I would love to win won and share it with our Discipleship Training Director :)

  64. JulieB says

    I would love to win a copy of this book, but no matter what this book is on my must read next list. Thanks for this opportunity.

  65. Kristen Rounseville says

    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.

  66. Stephanie says

    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.

  67. says

    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

    Michelle

  68. says

    I’m SOOO glad you posted this. I saw your previous post about Karen Ehman and I’ve started my own Christmas Binder this year. I’d love to see what’s in her “letting go” book too. Thanks for all the great resources. It’s wonderful to see the network of moms/wives out there who are trying everyday to live out our lives as Christians. Thank you!

  69. Leslie T says

    Wow I think as women we all struggle in this area… The world’s view is that we need to be in charge. It is hard to let go sometimes.
    Would love to get a copy :-)

  70. Sheila says

    I agree with Sandy. “Who doesn’t need this book??” I know I could certianly learn to let go and trust God more.

  71. says

    I facebooked this give-away and pinned it. I sure do hope I win, because I’m pretty sure she has been following me around and wrote this book for me.

  72. Charli says

    It has taken me years to let go of a few things. Would love to be able to continue letting go and help others do the same.

  73. Mindy Mosser says

    I have just found Karen’s blog this week (through your post, I think), and I am loving her Christmas/holiday challenge!!! I would love this book!!

  74. Kim M. says

    I would love to win a copy of this book. I am such the control freak….and with life becoming more and more busy each year…I need to let it go!

  75. Natalie O says

    I was just lamenting my need to do just what you said this book would help me do: takecontrol of my schedule yet welcome interruptions from God. I am looking forward to this one!

  76. Kerri says

    I am a late in life 1st time Mom to a 4 yr old Lil boy. After yrs of trying “mans” way to conceive We let go and let God. With that said I have always been a control freak. When my son came along, oh boy did I get worse. I have to continuously pray for Gods help to NOT try to control everything and allow my Sweet husband to lead. Some days I don’t succeed but Praise God He’s forgiving and so is my husband. :)

  77. Carrie Drish says

    I am so thankful to have found you and your site. I find your information so important and useful! As the director of children’s ministry at my local church, sometimes I forget to take time for my faith and you have helped with that. Thank you! I am excited to read this book and I think it will move mountains in my life!

  78. Cindy says

    This book sounds like.a must read for me. I am the queen of micromanaging and I am a perfectionist. I see dirt in my house where no one else sees it and I cannot rest till all is organized and done. I have been trying to let some things go so that I can spend more time with family and friends and with my God! I look forward to reading your insights!

  79. says

    Actually I bought the “untangling christmas” book because of your post on it! Working my way through it right now! Micromanaging is a big problem for me…..think I need to read this one! Sign me up! Lisa Evola

  80. Allison Lang says

    This looks like an amazing book! Cant wait to get my hands on it! My Sister In Laws, Mother In Law and some friends do a Wed. morning Bible study, and this would be perfect!

  81. Valerie Urnis says

    I just saw this on the Proverbs 31 website and saw the DVD sample, this book is totally me. A control freak from way back!

  82. Avien says

    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.

  83. says

    I’m so excited about this book and the giveaway!!! I enjoy reading Karen’s blog, she has a real down-to-earth writing style that I can connect with. P.S. I love – – – too and of course !!!! :)

  84. Raquel B says

    I have so much to Let Go; sometimes it feels like I’m gonna fall down and get stuck there from the weight of it all! Would be Great to read these! Thank You for the chance!

  85. Melanie Handy says

    I would love to read this. I had a bit of a “breakdown” yesterday in front of my children. I am a wife of a busy husband, mother of 2, childcare director and involved church leader. The feeling I had yesterday left me at the feet of Jesus – just where I needed to be. Any resource that God brings my way will be used. Love and Peace – Melanie

  86. Becky R says

    Wow! I think those bullet points describing the topics could ALL be applied directly to my life. What’s encouraging already is that if someone writes a book about it, there are many sharing my struggles! Whether I win or not, will be grabbing myself a copy:) Thank you always for your encouragement! Love that women can do life together even on the Internet…what blessing:)

  87. Sandi says

    As a mom of 5, ages 12-24, this sounds like a must-read for me! I think I will order copies for my 2 married daughters and my close friends for Christmas! Sounds like a wonderful book that we all need to read!

  88. Lori Brooker says

    Let. It. Go. I believe this is a book I could really use. I usually have to control everything which sometimes creates disastrous results in my family. Even if I don’t win I NEED this book!

  89. sharon Neri says

    People have to know that from a Broken Heart there is a way” OUT” and it is called Letting Go, But only threw forgiveness Of The Lord can this come . I have a daughter in law and daughter I would Love to share these books with …………. How they could grow from this Book . May God Bless whom ever wind Love Sharon

  90. Jen Wadman says

    Looks like another great resource. Thanks for all that you do to help us help our families. Gladly shared on facebook!

  91. Roberta Gerard says

    My friend and I are single mothers and have struggled everyday with keeping our faith and knowing all will be OK. We lean in each other to get through…..but it would be nice to have a friend in faith and to flourish in that.

  92. Julie says

    I need help with these very issues. I’m not a control freak yet but getting there. Guilty of feeling like “I have to do it all” and on my way to raising another just like me.

  93. Christine says

    I have got to get this book! Sounds like something I have been searching for many many years! Thank you for sharing.

  94. Kendra Tucker says

    This hit very close to my heart. I have been struggling to “Let Go” of a large sin in my past. I had a huge break through Sunday where God told me it was time to let it go, my past is dead & forgiven! Thank you for always being here Courtney with just the right words of encouragement! :)
    PS I am thoroughly enjoying the make your home a haven challenge. I have all my bible study ladies on board too!

  95. Kim Ostrum says

    I am so excited to read this book! It is just what I need. I struggle to find the balance of when to teach, when to let it go with my children. I have read Karen’s other books and know that she is an amazing author.

  96. Kim Ostrum says

    Just posted on facebook also as my girlfriends and I were talking about doing a book study together. What better timing? :-)

  97. Larissa Bukowski says

    Don’t have a problem with letting stuff go, my problem is that I’m really good at picking the stuff back up again. Okay maybe it isn’t letting go so much as dropping all the balls I have in the air at once. Looking forward to seeing how I can put stuff down and leave it down.

  98. Christa Duncil says

    I think this book will really help me. I’m a young mother of two(a 3 year old and one due on nov 19th) and a wife of a firefighter. I try to do it all. I’m a full time homemaker now and will be attending college in january. I get up early and go to bed late just to make sure everything is organized and cleaned for my family. Being a chef, taxi,…..is sometimes overwhelming. this book will help me to learn how to “let it go”. Thanks.

  99. Kristi says

    I’ve been following you for some time. Thank you for this blog and thank you for your dedication to introduce others to Faith. I did not grow up in a religious home and now want my children to learn that life will be better when walking with Jesus.

  100. julie says

    I love to see women walking out and sharing with others what God has placed in them. Thank you for being obedient to the call on your life and sharing the wisdom you have gleened with us!

  101. Catherine says

    I would love to give this as a holiday gift to my mentor. We have both agreed we are in this boat together in life and are throw our pride and what we are right about overboard.
    Thank you

  102. Nicole Brockwell says

    I would love to receive this book. I was just reading an excerpt in Lysa Terkeurst’s book Made To Crave about Karen thinking I need to check out her blog! Thanks for the reminder!

  103. Mel says

    I can so identify with too many dashes in my writing. It’s hard to calmly stop at the end of each sentence and punctuate when I am excited and want to run to the next thought!

  104. Sue Ritter says

    WOW! Could I ever use this book! I know I try to control everything and that I must let go, but gee it is soooo hard! :)

  105. Kristie says

    Oh I so need this book. I confess I am a perfectionist and feel that if I don’t do it it won’t get done right. A mother of six -although only four live at home- and our youth ministry at church, I feel I could use any extra help that God would send my way.

  106. says

    Sounds like I book I need to get. I’ve have to relinquish some control of flying my own plane of being a pilots wife the last few months of not being able to drive my own car/ plane. with a health scare. God has taught me many things about grace, and control and humor. No matter what got get this book. I’m also a new writer/blogger as well.

  107. says

    Whoa…. I open this blog post just as I text my friend about my issue of “control” being an idol (we are doing No Other God’s Bible Study by Kelly Minter) and how that seems to be a constant issue in my life. Looks like I need this even if I don’t win!

  108. Cheryl says

    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.

  109. Kari says

    This sounds like something I need! I have a hard time letting things go at times…okay, most of the time!
    Thanks for this opportunity!

  110. Karey says

    I was just looking for a resource like this because I’m a newer momma that can’t figure out what to give up and what to keep!

  111. says

    I look forward to reading this and watching the LORD weave it’s principles into my life. If it’s the treasure it appears to be, I can share it with others under my influence. God bless you!

  112. Sharie says

    There are a lot of things in my life I need to let go…….and things I need to learn that I can’t run the show on too. As my family has recently begun going to church, I also need to learn how to live in Faith better too.

  113. Anna Unruh says

    I would love to learn how to let go more, i think this book would help. It sounds interesting like it would be a good read…

  114. Jen Kline says

  115. Irma says

    With a hectic, lonely military lifestyle, much of home
    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

  118. Pam B. says

    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. I truly know that my basket will never be empty so to speak, but being a perfectionist, makes it even more difficult. Good luck to all who enters and God bless !

    It is wonderful to watch what God does when we Let Go and Let God…thanks for the opportunity to win this book. Hugs and Blessings to you.

  122. Michele says

    This book sounds like just the thing for me. My husband and I are going through a huge transformation in our spiritual lives as well as our marriage. Somedays I am total chaos inside! I know God is in control, but readings like this help make the transitions much easier.

  123. says

    Retired from one 30 year career, 5 years into non-profit fundraising and in partnership in a healthy and wellness business to change my lifestyle and that of my loved ones, I still find myself with all ‘A’s on my prioritization list…it is hard for me to identify a ‘B’ because EVERYTHING seems SO important. This book may be just the guidance I need.

  135. sharon says

    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!

  136. 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.

  137. Taryn witt says

    How are lives would be so fulfilling if we coukd learn that everything is in God’s hands. I would love to read the book so i could improve myself.

  138. Melissa Briggs says

    I know there is a way to not micromanage and control everything, I just haven’t figure it out yet. After a year of having things thrown at me that are out of my control and put a huge strain on my emotions I cannot wait to read your book! Thanks for sharing!

  139. Kandis says

    I would love to have this book!!!! Oh and I also would have a hard time writing a book I use lol and … Way too much!

  140. says

    This is something that is certainly a huge part of my life right now. The more I profess and pray in Faith, the more that God is showing me the way. This book may be the ticket should I be rewarded in the giveaway or not. God bless! x

  141. Jean says

    Wow, sounds like a great book for women of All ages. I know it will touch hearts and change lives. Thanks for sharing.

  142. says

    I have learned to let go of so much especially since we have been blessed with two grandsons. 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

  143. Kenzi L says

  147. Trish says

    Oh, to find the secret to walking with God and managing the household to enough to avoid chaos! Sound like a good book.

  148. Judy Mix says

    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!

  149. 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

  150. Lori Wingo says

    I have just recently started the Proverbs 31 Woman. As I am just beginning this new path, I believe this book will help me become the wife and mother I was intended to be!

    Thank you for your blog, you are inspirational!
    Lori
    :-)

  151. Christine Eaton says

    This post was directed to me today. I need this book! My life is all about controlling all that comes into either through the children, my husband, our pets, our friends you name it. I have broken down physically and mentally because I know I cannot do it all myself. The problem is that I do not know how to let it go???? Where to begin??? This book would be a great help for me as well as to others that I know that struggle with the same problems as I. If I don’t win it, thanks for letting me know it is out there, I will buy it :>

  152. Susan M says

    I thing I really need this book. I take too many things personally and my husband is always telling me to let it go.

  153. Lisa says

    I would love to win this book! A stay-at-home homeschool mom with many responsibilities. Yes, I think I need this book. Ha ha.

  154. Leann says

    I am so excited to get this book. I know it’s unlikely that I will be the winner but I’m still excited. I have shared this on facebook, twitter, pinterest and tweeted that I “pinned” it. This sounds like a wonderful book and dvd lesson. I am part of a small group of ladies that meet once a week in our church and this would be great for our next study. Thank you so much for all that you do to help others.

  155. mary d says

    I am so excited that someone wrote a book about me…lol!!! I would love to win a book with solutions/suggestions to turn these God given abilities into positive directions when they can tend to go south for a lot of women. I shared this giveaway on facebook.

  156. Tammy Dring says

    Excited to be a part of the opportunity to receive this book… Thinking I could really use the guidance…
    Blessings to you!

  157. April J says

    Oh, this is exactly what God has been showing me lately. Everything in me resonates with the the overview. I pray this book will bless many women, and help them in their walk of faith. What a message we all need to hear!
    Praying God will give an opportunity to read the wisdom she has to share.

  158. Liane says

    I’m the mom of A special needs child who has been
    Reading you daily. I could use this book
    As a welcome addition of trying to focus on
    Helping myself help my son! Thanks for the daily
    Inspiration!!!

  159. Carmen says

    This has and is a generational problem in my family. Among other things, I am learning and working to break some of these things and allow GOD to work in my life and family to provide Joy, peace and happiness in our home and GOD’s will not mine…. would love a copy. Thanks!

  160. Trisha says

    hi! I’d love to win a book and share with my girlfriend for our own study group.
    Thanks for your enthusiasm!!!! (I love exclamation points too!!! LOL)

  161. L Renee Little says

    I can tell by the description that I soooo need this book! And I know just the friend who needs the other copy! lol I love reading your blog every day; it reminds me that I am not the only one with these crazy thoughts in my head some days! ;-)

  162. Bobbi says

    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!

  163. Christy says

    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.

  164. Char says

    By the time you’re retired like I am, you’ve accumulated a life’s load of things to “let go.” Thank you for this giveaway offer and the opportunities you present us to further our walk with the Lord.

  165. Shannon P. says

    Thanks for the offer, Courtney. I so appreciate your encouragement and your help in keeping our focus on what is important.

  166. Hope Anderson 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.

  167. Katie V. says

    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!

  168. marybeth says

    Just when I think you’ve “let something go” pretty well, I find a new part of it to surrender! God doesn’t want any weed seeds taking over!

  169. Michelle S. says

    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.

  170. Judy says

    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.

  171. Jessica B says

    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.

  172. says

    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.

    Blessings,
    Becca

  173. Linda says

    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.

  174. says

    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!
