LET. IT. GO. 5-Day Pause Before You Pounce Challenge

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.

  • Karen,
    I just finished reading Shut It . I did not read your book before it and probably should have. But this enabled me to concentrate more on each chapter. The Lord has been dealing with me for a long time about my pride and know-it-all attitude I correct everything including pronunciation. Your book has been such a help for me! Recently, a younger sister accused me of several selfish things. I was so upset because none were true and she announced that she would never speak to me again. I prayed for about two weeks before I could compose a loving answer without defending myself. I feel so much better and can truly pray for my sister lovingly. Thank you for being God’s servant to me.

  • Hi there,

    I would like to say thank you for all you are doing to encourage our spirits and souls. This life is so tough, and sometimes we can be too hard on ourselves. The struggle I find is that I do not open up enough about my needs, which then gets stuffed because I feel like I do not want to sound like a baby, or even have that person “leave me”, which then neglects my needs and possibly puts me in a very unhealthy position. I am pretty sure the root of this comes from childhood. I want to learn how to respectfully ask for what I need and not worry what the outcome is,. I want to learn to remain true to myself this way I do not place myself in dangerous positions. Do you happen to have a book suggestion? Thank you so very much and please say a prayer for me to heal from whatever this may be,. I must take care of myself first to be there and strong for my family.

  • With all the togetherness in the world going on now, quarantined in our homes, I am thankful to find this but of help!

  • Thank you so much for your study & resources, Karen. A friend and I are putting on a little “unofficial” women’s retreat for the ladies in our small group using your “Keep It Shut” curriculum and are so excited to share this with our group – we call ourselves “God’s Gabby Girls” because we love to talk so much when we are together! I don’t think it’s any accident we found your study to inspire us to use our words rightly in the eyes of the Lord. God bless you and all the women in Proverbs 31 ministries.
