How to Stop Being a Controller

Are you weary of trying to control every area of your life only to feel defeated and completely exhausted? In this episode of the “You Can Overcome” show, host Gwen Shamblin Lara interviews Patrick and Amy Stites who at one time appeared as though they had the perfect lives and yet they were actually coming apart at the seams. Amy struggled for years with being enslaved to impossible-to-keep food rules, extreme exercise and trying to control her husband. Patrick lacked the wisdom with how to help Amy find freedom and achieve peace within their marriage.

Enter Weigh Down…When Amy heard the Biblical truths presented in a Weigh Down Workshop class by Gwen Shamblin Lara, her entire world started changing for the better as did Patrick’s. She found out the answer to giving up control and looking for God for His control in every area of her life. The practical Biblical wisdom and “how to” information revolutionized her personally, as well as her marriage. Years later, Patrick and Amy’s marriage is stronger than ever and their lives are richly blessed with profound joy. Their teenage children are now reaping the benefits of what their parents learned, as they too are putting into practice the very same practical ancient truths taught in Weigh Down.

If you are looking for answers to peace, purpose and how to give God the control of every area of your life, this episode of the “You Can Overcome” show is a must watch.
