Are you joining us after reading my Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion called clashing with others? {Click here to read it}

Relationships are rough. Sometimes REALLY rough.

If you’d like to take a five-day journey toward better relationships in your family, sign up for my “Pause Before You Pounce” challenge by clicking here or on the image. Here is why I wrote it:

Ever have times when, while interacting with family members around the house, you are certain you are going to blow your stack?

The chores aren’t done on time—or in the right way. Someone makes a complete mess of an area you just spent a great deal of time cleaning. The kids are sluggish getting out the door to an event and now it threatens to make the entire family late. Something you asked someone to do didn’t get done and now it messes up your day. And on and on and on…..

Interruptions. Inconvienences. Delays. Derailments.

Messes. Mishaps. Mayhem……that’s Motherhood!!

When you can’t always control the look of your house–or the actions of those living in it–do you sometimes also have a hard time controlling your temper and your tongue? Do you find yourself behaving biblically backwards—being slow to listen, quick to speak and quick to become angry?

This “Pause Before You Pounce” Challenge includes five days of encouraging and practical devotions that will not only inspire you to interact prayerfully and properly with the members of your family, it will also give you some practical ways to do it along with a small daily challenge designed to bring BIG change! The idea-packed emails will automatically come to you daily for five days starting with the day you sign up.

ALSO: If you want to be entered to win one of three copies of the small group curriculum DVD from my latest book LET. IT. GO.: How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith (On how to control what you should and trust God with what you can’t!) leave a comment on this post. The DVD contains 6 weeks of teaching on a different Bible character who either was an example of a control freak or one who trusted God. It is for small group or individual use. {The giveaway is for 3 DVDs valued at $27.99 each. Does not include the companion study guide}

To be entered, tell us what you have the hardest time trusting God with– finances, marriage, kids, future, circumstances, etc…

For me HANDS DOWN it is with my kids and their choices as they grow older. I want to step in and micromanage and keep them from learning hard lessons. But, if I do, they might not learn the lesson! Ugh!

Your turn…..


  1. I have a difficult time trusting God with my husband and I in the regards to how He wants to use us. Giving us courage to seek what He wants from us and to not lean on our own understanding, when to speak up and grow and be willing to step outside of our box to trust God enough that He will take care of us if we are doing what He desires.

  2. Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve
    loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?

    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  3. I would have to say all areas in life are difficult for me to rely totally on God. Im a too much of a control freak that it makes it very difficult to wait on God’s will. I struggle with my impatience and type A personality constantly. I am looking forward to reading your words and discussing with my small group of wonderful ladies! I am encouraged and hopeful that this will give me the ability to LET. IT. GO and fully rely and trust that our wonderful Lord and Savior will carry my burdens and lead me to be a better person, friend, mother, daughter, wife, and nurse. I thank you for sharing your expertise with us all. Looking forward to a great journey!

  4. I have the hardest time letting and trusting my husband to lead our family. He is a wonderful man and I love him. I tend to try to take over though.

  5. I find it hardest to trust God with my marriage relationship. Things have not been well for quite some time and I know I need to just give the whole situation to God. It’s just difficult to let go of control of something so big!
