Book Description

Feb. 15 2011

Burdened. The word alone makes shoulders sink. It slows down our lives. It clouds our vision. It is the heaviness of so many memories, grudges, fears, uncertainty, and stress.

Let go.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt 11:28)

Let go.

Overworked? Overcommitted? Overtired? Underappreciated?

Let go!

Live free. Sound impossible? Sheila Walsh thought so – until God proved Himself again and again through His Word, His people, and her life.

In Let Go, the best-selling author and speaker walks readers through the journey to freedom in Christ. Along the way, she tackles some of the toughest struggles that weigh women down, answering them with overwhelming truth, promise, and hope. You can lay down your burdens. You can rest. You can find peace. You can live free.

Start here. Let go. And see what God can do.

Includes a study guide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let Go Sept. 7 2009
Format:Hardcover
We all need deliverance in one area or another. To receive it, we need to let go: of self-effort, legalism, past hurts or actions, unforgiveness, shame, lack of self-worth, fear, loneliness... the list could go on.

Men need this freedom too, but Let Go is a woman-to-woman book. Each chapter opens with brief quotes and a contemporary parable. Sheila Walsh shares her personal experiences as well as teaching from Scripture. Chapters end with a few questions for discussion or private contemplation, and with a prayer.

Initially I feared this would be a lightweight overview of complex issues, but I needn't have worried. Sheila introduces each element with a gentle touch and goes deeper in successive chapters. This is a good way to approach touchy subjects like hurt and shame that we may have to chew on a while.

Sheila's music has blessed me for maybe 30 years now, and a recurring theme is that God loves each of us -- more than we can imagine -- no matter who we are or what we've done.

This is the message at the heart of Let Go. Sheila writes, "God's love for us is based on who he is. This truth can change our lives if we are able to receive it." (p. 172)

Sheila Walsh's transparency and her heart for God make her a woman He can use to touch others. Let Go is an encouraging book that's well worth reading. You can read the opening chapter of Let Go [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly a book for all women who long to live free Aug. 26 2009
Format:Hardcover
As a single woman I find that I don't usually relate to most women's books with their family and marriage illustrations. So it was with some trepidation that I opened Let Go.

Happily, I enjoyed the book and found much in it that I will need to think about and continue to apply to my own life. I found her to be an easy writer to read. Her style is warm and comfortable, almost like a conversation over a cup of coffee. Her topic is not always warm and comfortable. There are things to make you think and concepts to wrestle with and these apply whether you are a single or married woman.

What I liked most about the book is that she doesn't try to give easy answers. This isn't a how-to book. I think it's more of a theology of freedom and deliverance. From it we learn what God can do, how He accomplished it in the life of the writer and her family and how He will continue to accomplish it until the day of Christ Jesus (Phil. 1:6).

If you are a woman who is burdened by life, this book will give you the tools to find freedom in Christ.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discovering Deliverance May 8 2009
By C. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
"Let Go" is a book that explores what deliverance means for today's practicing Christian women. The book is written by popular Women of Faith speaker Sheila Walsh. She seeks to answer the question of why Christian women today try to carry burdens that they are not intended to bear. She seeks to help you transfer those burdens to Christ, according to biblical principles.

The aspect of this book that I enjoyed most is how the author teaches you to acccept yourself. She says that "sometimes the person that is hardest to forgive is the person you see in the mirror." That was a lesson she learned after ministering to women in prison. She goes on to talk about self-hatred, self-forgiveness, and lifting the burden of guilt.

The author seeks to bring the concept of being delivered from burdens into today's real-life situations. Some of the topics that are discussed are self-confidence, guilt, shame, and temptation. She touches briefly on addictions (to food, shopping), getting psychological help (her own admission to a hospital), and maturing in faith.

The book is written for Protestant Christian women and relies heavily on quotations from Scripture to illustrate points. She uses both traditional translations and contemporary translations (from The Message). Each chapter contains pertinent stories from life, applicable Scripture passages, quotes from famous people, questions for reflection and a suggested prayer for the chapter. This book is suitable for personal or group use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hanging On By Letting Go Oct. 22 2009
By Sandra King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"I will deliver you."

Sheila Walsh, Women of Faith speaker, opened her book with these words from God spoken in her spirit. She felt "discouraged and bone weary." Just like so many of us women at so many times in our lives.

She needed "more peace about the issue." So she began a "quest to study and understand what it means to be delivered."

A sense of frustration dogged my reading in the beginning because I wanted Sheila to "bleed." I wanted to know exactly what struggle, what issue required deliverance.

I continued to read in my usual manner with pencil in hand, marking statements that spoke to me or seemed to relate to the theme of letting go.

Stuff like...
* Accepting what is enables us to embrace a different future.
* What should have happened did.
* When we are unable to forgive or refuse to forgive, we become hostages to the pain of the past.
* Forgiveness unclenches our fists and allows us to let go.
* The most difficult person to forgive can be the one we see in the mirror every morning.
* Resting in the love of God means letting go of all the broken pieces we cling to and clinging instead to him.
* It's hard to fall off a pedestal when you are washing someone's feet.
* Guilt tells me I've done something wrong. Shame tells me I am something wrong.
* If I place my hope in anything or anyone other than Jesus, I will be disappointed.
And then she bled. She shared the story. And the intense spiritual struggle. And wise words from a child.

And what seemed disjointed (which is often the way of healing) and all of my markings came together. And carried more meaning.

Sometimes in order to hang on, we have to let go.

Thank you, Sheila, for being open and vulnerable. For letting go of the need to protect yourself. We've all been there in some form, and your overcoming gives us hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all...Let Go... May 17 2009
By Shana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This book offers lessons based on following Christian principles to help women make it through problems that plague today's woman. This book covers and bases the lessons of "Let Go" on the promise of grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Each chapter is followed by inspirational and empowering ways for women to let go of their burdens and build their Christian faith in the process. The author writes in a light-hearted and at times a comical way, which makes it easy to read & learn from. The author shares her own weaknesses and trials with the reader and it makes it easy to relate to her and learn from her. Also, the chapters make their point quickly, so you won't get overwhelmed with information. Even if the reader is not a Christian, there are many points the author makes which would help any woman trying to lessen her worrisome burdens.

This book would be very suitable for a woman's group study or devotional. There are ponder points at the end of each chapter. They would make great discussion topics for any women's group.

One of my favorite quotes from the book is "When we are satiated with God's grace, it is much easier to extend grace to other's, but, when we are on starvation rations ourselves we have little to spare." This is just one of the many common sense approaches the author shares with the reader. This book earns 5 stars as I feel the author does exactly what the title implies.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars April 6 2009
By Pamela Jarmon-Wade - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a tremendous tool for any woman to have in her library. I liked the format that the author used for each chapter which consisted of bible scriptures, personable quotes, a well told testimony/story, deliverance discovered questions and a prayer of deliverance.

A sample of the chapter titles are: This dead religion is past its sell-by date, living in the past, look at the view ahead!, the trap of unforgiveness, You are you for a reason, a long-awaited deliverance.

Story after story the author shows the reader that if we "let go" that God will hold 100 percent true to his word and deliver us.

Highly recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Caution: heresy lurks Aug. 3 2009
By David Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my sister, thinking it would be a blessing to her as it apparently has been for so many others, based on their reviews. I read the book (I haven't given it to my sister yet). To the point. On page 132, Sheila makes a statement that has to be regarded as rank heresy. "When Eve, made in the image of God, reached outside the life he had lavished on her, we all fell. Now the whole planet limps and weeps along." I will not get into the theological ramifications of this grave error here. We must be clear on this one point though; we did not all fall when Eve sinned. It is because of Adam's sin that sin, death and judgment came into the world. The Bible never, anywhere says that in Eve the race fell. Romans chapter 5 makes it patently clear that it is in Adam, not Eve, that all sin. Christ is the second Adam, not the second Eve. Adam, not Eve, is the type or pattern that is to come. Please read Romans chapter 5. This is no light matter. We cannot allow this type of loose interpretation to go unchecked. I hope somehow that Sheila Walsh corrects this error.
