LET GO by Sheila Walsh

Author: Sheila Walsh
Hardcover: 224 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (February 10, 2009)
ISBN-10: 0849901359

My Review:
Author Sheila Walsh heard a voice from within, one like she had not heard before. It said, “I will deliver you.” Ms. Walsh begins to ask the question, “What does it mean to be delivered.” In her new book, Let Go, Live Free of the Burdens All Women Know, she attempts with great success, I might add, to put it into perspective for all of us.

What are we to be delivered from? It is anything that is weighing us down. The weight may come from shame, bad habits, secrets, fear, loneliness, hopelessness, depression, or number of other burdens in our lives. The author shows us how to start the journey back toward wholeness.

This well-written, easy to read book, includes helpful scriptures, famous quotes, questions and a prayer at the end of each chapter, and notes at the end. Some chapters are: Living in the Past; Look at the View Ahead; The Trap of Unforgiveness; Let Go and Live in Christ’s Victory; You Are You for a Reason; Sometimes My Life Feels Like a Cliffhanger; God Will Prove It’s a Love Story; and more.

This is the first time I have read anything by this author and was very pleased at her style of writing and depth of scriptural and spiritual knowledge. The book was a delightful and inspiring read.

My sister just had the pleasure of interviewing Sheila and I can agree, she is probably one of the most honest authors and speakers I've ever known. I have read many of her books and each one speaks to me.

Barbara said...

CCDaydreams- What an honor to interview her! She's a very special and talented lady.

She is a wonderful lady. Have seen her several times at Women of Faith conferences. She is awesome and she sings beautiful too.

Lea- I've never had the opportunity to see her in person. Maybe someday.
