Control Girl by: Shannon Popkin

Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible (January 2017, Kregel)

Tension, anger, fear, anxiety—it all begins with a heart that craves control.

Little fights with your husband and kids. Unhappiness when things don’t match your version of perfect. When your perspective of how life should go replaces God’s, you doom your quest for security, peace, and joy before it even starts.

Thankfully, there is a better way.

Join Shannon as she shares what she has discovered about her own control struggles and
about God from studying seven Control Girls in the Bible. Whether it was Eve’s desire to know instead of trust, Sarah’s inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah’s controlling hand on her family’s future, each of these women’s stories contain warnings and lessons for us today.

Learn how you too can lay down this burden of trying to control everything and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.

Control Girl by Shannon Popkin is an in-depth study on Women in the Bible that wanted to have control and how we as women today can relate to them.  Popkin shared many things in her book Control Girl that hit home in my life.  She nailed it on the head with this topic.  As long as we live in this sinful flesh we'll always be fighting this battle.  However, with God's help we can learn to ease up on our controlling desire.  Shannon is very transparent in this book.  She shares from her heart as well as her own experiences.  It's an excellent book and very well put together.  I highly recommend this book.  I'm sure you'll find a picture of yourself someplace among the pages of this book.  

Shannon Popkin is a wife and mom, a speaker and teacher, and a leader of small group studies. She's been published by "Family Fun," "MOMsense," "Focus on the Family Magazine," and other outlets.
