Yesterday at about 4:30 pm I wrote the last word of my new book A Surrendered Life.Yes I did!!!ย 

TODAY! it goes to the publisher!!

52,000 Words; 175 pages of blood sweat and tears! It will be in my hands (and I pray in yours!) bound and beautiful by the Fall.

Stay tuned for that ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how tough this book has been to write and how long this journey has been so I won’t try.

I’ll just celebrate and some lucky friend of Living Free is about toย get blessed.

I recently had a blast of a weekend in Orlando with these amazing ladies and just so happen to have some autographed copies of their latest books.


Lysa Terkeurst (who just happened to be signing her new book on this day); Mary Snyder and Gwen Smith!

You may have heard of Lysa!! Her new book UNGLUED just released by my sweet little sister has just made it to the New York Times BESTSELLER list. I think she now has a place reserved there since her last book MADE TO CRAVE hit that big bell as well!

These ladies ROCK and ROLL and some lucky winner will is about to LOVE ME ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hi! Ooooh, I would love to win the Unglued book! I just signed up to do Lysa’s Made to Crave Bible study at my church this fall and would love to read her latest book too! Awesome giveaway!

  14. Hi! Found your site through Lysa’s twitter feed. Amazing the places technology can lead us to. <3 ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Congratulations on finishing the book! Anxious to read it. I’m currently listening to Lisa’s “Made to Crave” via audiobook when I’m walking each morning. Looking forward to reading/listening to ‘Unglued”.

  16. Its so weird I started following Psalms emails over 6-7 years ago, then I joined Prism weight loss in my church they supplemented with Made To Crave, and when Lysa did her webcast I joined twitter. Then In December I received a Kindle, and it’s hooked up to Twitter… so now, 18 mos after the made to crave, I’m learning to use Twitter, and I love being plugged into Lysa and the different sisters of encouragement. I was surprised to learn Lysa was the same person Who did my Psalms email!!!! What a shock I felt like old friends… I still need to get the Made to Crave. But the emails I’ve gotten on Unglued I know this book could hold truths that could literally save my family. We are in the trenches right now with daily screaming fights and my mother is so frutsrated she says she has no more control and has already had a heart attack. I am entering every contest I can. My mom is 56 I’m 37 and my son is 13 and we have not had peace in 2-.3 years. Even if we do not win the contest any who read this please lift your prayers for peace for us.. and even more I dare ask for Joy. Jesus Heals. AMEN!

    By the way did I catch that right are you guys sisters? Best of luck to you also and Blessings to all!!!!

    1. hi Kelly,
      Just read your blog entry and wanted you to know that I have felt lead by the holy spirit to pray specifically for you, for your 13 yr old son and for your Mom who is just 1 yr older than me.
      My 2nd husband has a daughter of 31, a grand daughter of 14, who is self harming by slashing her wrists, and I know the pressure short fuses can put on the whole family! It’s easier to say than to do but please remember this:
      ” God has already made a plan for your whole family, and even if they have not yet given their lives to the Lord, He can and will still be able work through you in their lives..just love them unconditionally, be persistent in prayer, thankful for small mercies and allow yourself to step back ..let go and let God as His strength is made perfect in our weakness” x Susan, England

  25. First time on your website! I am so excited at all the sites I am finding through Lysa’s site. What a blessing to find wonderful godly women sharing their journey. Thank you for sharing your life with us, Pat.

  26. Hi! I just found your site last night after contemplating taking the surrendering the secret class at my church (which begins tonight, God’s timing is so good). Thanks to yoou and my church for offering this course amongst some other experiences this year, I am finally feeling ready to release the hold my past choices have had on me! God bless you!

I pray God will bless you abundantly, but I think He’s already done that! Blessings to you!

  28. Hi Pat!!

    Congrats on finishing your book! I would love to win a copy of the Unglued book. As a newlywed (1 1/2 years), there have been lots of moments in my new role as wife where I feel as though I may become Unglued! I think this book would give me some great perspective (and really make my husband happy too). ๐Ÿ™‚



  29. I have went through the STS Bible study and I am presently going through it again. It is a study that each time it’s tough but you grow stronger and freer and closer with and to our Lord. Thank you for going backwards in your life to come forward with this study to share with the rest of us who are wandering through life with this heavy load. Thanks again
