Let’s Go!

If you’ve been around lately then you know we are striving for greater in our lives. And greater is possible. But only if we are willing to truly move forward, let go, and let God.

That’s one reason I’m so excited about our next study. It’s the perfect follow up to Greater.

You are invited to join me, Proverbs 31 Ministries, and lots of ladies from all over the world to participate in our next Online Bible Study, Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman. You can sign up in the right corner of this blog at the very top.  All the information you need to sign up and be ready to begin on February 3rd is here today. Just read on!

LET. IT. GO. How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith

By Karen Ehman

Foreword by Candace Cameron Bure(who is also a guest on our Let. It. Go. Conference Call series. Sign up for the conference call series by Wednesday, 11:59 pm EST AND leave a comment in the comment section of this blog post listing the 4 conference call guests, and you will be entered to win one of 5 beautiful compact Bibles, small enough to carry around in your purse!) Not only could you win one of these cute Bibles for yourself, but you could also win a regular sized Bible to give away to a friend. 5 winners announced on Friday!  

Aren’t they oh so cute!!!  And because they are small, it’s convenient to carry with you everywhere!  So, sign up for our FABULOUS conference call series and you could win one of these plus all winners also get a Bible to give away to a friend!  AWESOME!

 

Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals prepared, 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 to:

  • Take control of your schedule yet welcome interruptions from God
  • Draw the line between mothering and micromanaging
  • Influence your husband instead of manipulating him
  • 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

Sign up today here.

Are you ready?  Let’s Go!
