Review of “Let Go” by Sheila Walsh


In “Let Go,” Sheila Walsh sets out to teach readers that we can live free of the burdens women carry by letting God be God and accepting His unconditional love. This is often so very hard to do, but Walsh uses a short anecdote and personal experience along with scripture to show how we can release our burdens and basically let go and let God.

Each chapter covers one specific burden, we, as women, carry around with us such as guilt, shame, unforgiveness, temptation, etc. Each chapter ends with questions that help you discover deliverance and a prayer for deliverance from that particular burden. The book is written so you can skip to the chapters discussing issues you want to deal with first and will be a useful tool to have on hand to help other women who are struggling, too.

Although not necessarily a good book study for a small group, it would be perfect for a mentorship or accountability relationship. This book will keep you focused on why you need God to help you release your burdens and will be the tool to help you do it. For once, I have found someone who has explained theology in such a way that it is understandable. She has found a way to make scripture personal and applicable to the particular situation she is addressing. I would recommend this book to any woman who needs to be set free from the burdens the world places on us. As you will learn from Walsh’s book, you are who God says you are not who the world is trying to make you become.
