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.Read more ›
I must tell you that the different ways we humans use to manipulate our environment that Karen Ehman draws out in detail are a stark reminder to anyone--you will see yourself trying to control something in your life when you read her loving, funny, but forthright words. I know I did, and I was truly surprised.
I needed the reminder that God is God and I am not. I needed to be shown that I don't trust Him as much as I say and think I do. I believe the mirror this book helped me hold up to my soul will not allow me to walk away the same person I was before.
Karen very wisely teaches a needed life skill: "how to control what we should and trust God with what we can't."
She shares many stories that will make you laugh out loud. It's very easy to relate to Karen. She's a wonderful guide and the kind of lady you'd call friend. The book includes a little quiz to test your personal control quotient. With that in mind, you can tackle the rest of the chapters and transform from a control freak into a more relaxed version of you. A woman who is at peace with where she is. That's a great place to be - thank you Karen for helping us get there!
Karen writes as if you're sitting at the table with a girlfriend, chatting over a nice cup of coffee. I appreciated and enjoyed the visit, and believe you will, too!
