How to Control Your Emotions Week 3

Wow, here we are in Week 3 of How to Control Your Emotions So They Don't Control You (a mom's guide to overcoming)! How is everyone doing? I would love to hear from you, so take a moment to leave me a comment of what you are learning so far in our journey.

I love Chapter 3 "Where Do We Get the Power to Overcome?" because it is a wonderful reminder of the power of Heaven that we have access to as children of God.

If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead 
dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead 
will also give life to your mortal bodies 
through His Spirit who dwells in you. 
(Romans 8:11)

As we read this week, I pray that our hearts would be opened to the power of Heaven that is available to us as children of God, and that we will remember who we are in the heat of the moment so that we can choose to respond to the honor and glory of God with our emotions.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this chapter! I look forward to meeting here with you on Friday for our Blog Link-up Party where we'll share our hearts. If you don't have a blog, please leave your thoughts in the comments so we can learn from each other!

Learning to overcome together,



  1. This week was as good as last week's. this book it just what I needed. I have felt a change in my heart. I don't want to be that screaming, ugly mom. I want to be the slow to anger mom. It is so weird to me to have the same power as Jesus. I just can not wrap my head around this. I have invited God into my mess more often than usual. I can not wait to read the next chapter.

    1. Hi, Amy!

      Oh yes, I totally agree with you...this book is just what I've needed too! I am noticing a change in my heart too - hearing a gentle whisper when my emotions seek to overtake me in situations that are stressful. A gentle whisper that reminds me of who I am and the power that is available to me to choose well in how I respond. I'm not always succeeding, but when I do choose well I love knowing I have made God smile!

      Thanks for taking this journey with me! :)

      Praying for you,
