*About the Book*
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.
This was a book that I NEEDED to read. I suffer from anxiety(and have my entire life), and I feel like I HAVE to be in control of situations. After reading "Control Girl" by Shannon Popkin & learning about the control issues Eve, Sarah, & Rebekah faced, I am learning to surrender the control I crave! I know that the Lord is in control of my present and future.I am still learning to let go, surrender control over to the one who is IN control, and live free!!!
