How to Break Free From the Prison of People Pleasing

Are you tired of trying to meet other people’s expectations?

Relationships are messy. Sometimes we find ourselves saying what another person wants to hear, just to keep the peace. But does that help in the long run?

We know the Bible tells us to love one another, but does that mean we should avoid conflict? Worry about appearances or status? Keep our thoughts and opinions to ourselves?

And why do we care so much what others think of us, anyway, especially if our convictions are honoring to God? He loves us and accepts us. Isn’t that enough?


Cue the Confetti!!!

I’m so excited to share with you
our SECOND Course Titled…

How to Break Free
From the Prison of People Pleasing

This course kicks off October 4th and runs for 4 weeks. New content will be released daily!

This soul-liberating course is designed to help you:

  • Release the chains of other people’s expectations
  • Grow in your knowledge of God’s Word and will for your life
  • Glean wisdom and insight from four experienced mentors who’ve been there and know how to help you find freedom from people pleasing!

We understand your struggle!

We’re Karen Ehman, Courtney Joseph, and Ruth Schwenk—three Jesus-loving moms, authors and Bible teachers who live the chaos every day. We know how it feels to face countless demands, deadlines and expectations on our time and emotions. And we’ve also learned how to break free. 

Let us teach you how.

Our new online course, How to Break Free from the Prison of People Pleasing, will help you discover how to shed your need for others’ approval and rest in God’s call on your life instead. Can we get an amen?

This first course will be featuring special guest (and my dear friend): Nicki Koziarz

  1. Since I love to help and encourage people, I would like this course to differentiate between having a Biblical servant heart and people pleasing

  2. Good morning. I missed the deadline to enroll. Will you be offering this course again at some point?
