Reviews

Blogger Lee (The Happiness Dare) asks women to let go of a striving attitude in this stirring call. Addressing her readers and her overachieving former self, she writes, "You are the sort of woman we can count on to meet a work deadline, organize a food drive, take in the neighbors' kids during an emergency, drive your coworker to chemo, counsel a friend at 3 a.m." She then turns to scriptural and personal examples that explore the reasons and mechanisms for letting go of control and allowing God to work. Her description of her relationship with her two daughters is poignant as she explains that she needed to stop "helping" them so much; they had to learn and make mistakes for themselves. Lee's most helpful piece of advice is her "Do, Delegate, or Dismiss" plan for getting through daily tasks, which she lays out in detail. She also defines three types of women--the Driver (planner, predictor, group leader), the Devoter (caring, generous, loyal, zealously doting), and the Darling (rule follower, detail minded, self-controlled)--and dedicates chapters to each group. Lee's book of advice and encouragements will appeal to Christian women who feel overburdened by a hectic life.--Publishers Weekly
