Control Girl~Book Review {and Giveaway!} with Shannon Popkin

Control Girl Shannon Popkin 

If "control girl" describes you in any way, you need to get this book. If you're like me and think it sometimes describes you, I highly recommend you read it, too. While it is good for any woman, much of the writing is written with an emphasis on being married and having a husband. The way Popkin writes not only brings fantastic insight to the dangers of being a control girl, but she provides rich, biblical detail to women in the Bible in a way I have never seen before. Great resource, and I have already recommended it to several friends.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher, but was under no obligation to write a review. My honest opinion has been provided without any requirement to write a positive review.*

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.
