About the Book

Read by the author.

“I could not think of a better read and better reminder that He writes the best stories.”

—Sadie Robertson Huff, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and founder of Live Original 

There’s a lie masquerading as truth that’s running rampant in our culture. It goes something like this: you are powerful enough to control your circumstances and create the life you want through positive thinking, solid planning, and dreaming big enough. But if you’ve ever tried to control your life or to strive your way to self-fulfillment, you’ve discovered what lies on the other side of this supposedly empowering message: frustration, exhaustion, and disappointment when things don’t go your way.

In Surrender Your Story podcast host and blogger Tara Sun explores why the quest for control is overrated—not to mention downright dangerous—and reveals the surprising, lifegiving alternative: radical surrender to God. When a battle with chronic illness demolished her illusions of control and independence, Tara embarked on her own journey toward surrender and true trust in God, and now invites you to do the same. Drawing on Scripture and her own powerful story, Tara will help you

  • let go of your death grip on control and find freedom in surrender;
  • learn how to truly trust God with the twists and turns of your story;
  • depend on God as your source of strength; and
  • move forward in faith, even in the face of life’s disappointment and setbacks.


Surrendering control to God isn’t a loss—it’s actually where we gain the most abundant life. When we believe that God loves us and is worthy to be trusted with our stories, we can trade the burden of self-sufficiency, control, and worry, for the peace, freedom, and purpose we’ve been longing for.
