With two thriving teens in my house, (ages 13 and 15) I thought I could use some inspiration on how to let go without losing it. My kids are my life and letting them go in this scary world is...well, scary! Although I'm not big on devotionals, (I prefer reading the Bible daily) I decided to read The Joy of Letting Go.
