Product Description

I control because I care.
"I just want to be sure of a happy ending."
"I worry that everything is spinning out of control."
Many women can identify with statements like these. They have a compulsion to make everything turn out just right and are willing to do anything to make it happen. But this unbalanced pursuit of control makes those around them anxious and defensive. And when they realize control is slipping from their grasp, they lose control of themselves and react in anger or fear.

Shannon Popkin knows this struggle inside and out. Keeping her inner Control Girl hidden is a full-time job. Thankfully, she also knows another very important truth: no woman has to be a Control Girl.

In this encouraging book, Shannon invites seven Control Girls from the Bible into the conversation. She examines each story for the moments in which grasping for control circumvented God's plans for good, whether it was Eve's desire to know instead of to trust, Sarah's inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah's controlling hand on her family's future. Finally, Shannon finds God's perspective on each of the problems and then reveals how readers' can have their own happy endings in similar situations.

The author shares from her own struggles and follows each Bible study with questions for personal reflection. In the end, controlling women will find insight into their own experience, peace in the knowledge that God is in control, and relief that they are free.

    This book combines biblical examples, scripture verses, and personal anecdotes seamlessly into lessons to help women grow to be more like Jesus by surrendering their need to control others. It made me laugh, it made me think, it convicted me to work in areas in my life that need change. I can't wait to share this with my girlfriends and have a bible study to discuss it! I also love the meditation cards you can print off on her website. I have them propped up by my kitchen sink to remind me of the things I've read & been convicted of.
