Book Review: Let Go

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17)
That is the message that author and Women of Faith speaker, Sheila Walsh, shares in her new book : Let Go: live free of the burdens all women know.

This book takes the reader through a journey faith, grace and forgiveness that ultimately leads to true freedom in Christ. In the book, Walsh shares personal stories of how she has learned to "let go and let God".

The lessons in the book are overly profound. They are simple truths that all women need to know and live. Freedom comes in letting go of old hurts, past regrets, shame, and unforgiveness.

This book is an easy read. It doesn't overindulge in unnecessary ponderings. It would be a great resource for a women's small group study. Each chapter ends with questions that would be great for discussion. I would recommend this book to any woman that is living with the burdens of her past, and struggling to trust that God's love for her surpasses anything she has done.

You can order a copy here.

Ooh, I forgot to tell you - thanks for the info, I'm reviewing a book too! I'm about halfway done with it.

On your book - we women are harder on ourselves than anyone has the right to be, am I right? We hold ourselves to impossibly high standards, and then when we inevitably fail, we beat ourselves up about it.

Sometimes the one we need to forgive the most is ourselves!
