Are you trying to stay in control of your quest for peace, joy, and security . . . and you’re exhausted? Shannon Popkin’s debut book, Control Girl, is a must-read for anyone with a heart that craves control. 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.

This Mom’s Review:


I have always considered both my husband and myself to be controlling to a certain degree. Yet, I saw myself as the one who would cave to let him have his way (more than the other way around). Then I read this book. Control issues are affecting my life in ways I did not know. Who knew that some emotions I have are because of this sin … yes, sin. I can see myself in three of the seven women portrayed in this study. I have highlighted a lot of the book that relates to where I am now (controlling) and where I’d like to be (surrendering).

God is good and I’m glad he has pointed out some ways that need correction through this book and the Scripture study. You will want to dig out your Bible for this one.

About the book:
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.
