    As women we all struggle with control at some point in our lives. We all want to take care of others and of things but we need to let go and Let God control. I've really enjoyed reading this book. It shows not only how we try to control but also why and how to change it. I think all women could benefit from this book in some way. Read it and take it to heart. I received this book from the book club network in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.

    Surrender Your Junior God Badge by Jackie Kendall was a very engaging read. I have read her before, and I have always found her honesty refreshing, and this book was no different. This book is for every woman, controlling or not (because Im sure weve all struggled with control at one point or another), old, young, single and married women alike (our future families will thank us later, Im sure- and our present households will no doubt benefit as well). So if you feel tired, read this book. If you feel TIRED, read this book. And if you are a daughter of Eve, read this book. Just read it. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

    I honestly didnt think I really needed this book. I dont consider myself a control freak.

    But after reading this I realize I am in several areas I never even knew I was trying to control. I think everyone has a bit of control issues at times in their lives.

    Jackie does a great job showing the reader how when we try to control we arent trusting God. That isnt a place we want to be.

    I love this sentences from p. 60: Gods grace is available for time of need only, not for the tormented hypothetical time of need. Gods grace is available and sufficient for today.

    Oh my, I definitely make up a lot of hypothetical times of need and this is not okay. Gods grace is all we need for today.

    Whether you think you try to control things or not this is book you might want to pick up and get some truth spoken into you.

    A copy of this book was given me through The Book Club Network, Inc. in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read about the subject on controlling women. I am guilty of trying to control everything. Earlier in my marriage, I controlled everything and if it didn't go my way, I found ways to pout . I wanted to make sure everyone knew I was unhappy unless I got my way. I was very overprotective of my children as they grew up . My excuse was that I wanted to protect them, but really I was controlling them while leaving little room for them to grow and become independent .

    I loved the author's description od the very first women who "thought she was smarter than God." Thanks Eve for thinking you knew better than God. It is funny how we think once we get married we will be able to change our spouse. "Controlling women think they are responsible to change people who are not going in the right direction." What a funny statement that is. Controlling women thinking they know best and should direct others to the right way to go. How many of us are guilty of controlling and proudly wearing our badge?

    What a powerful book that opens your eyes to what being controlling can do to yourself. We can find ourselves anxious, angry , fearful, insecure and have low self-esteem and turn to controlling others to overcome these issues. This book has hit home for me and I saw myself doing many of the things she talked about without realizing I was self destructing . One of the things she talks about in the book is a struggle I have had for many years. I have dealt with anxiety attacks for so long that it can sometimes become overwhelming. But then I read this verse , "Be still and know I am God." (Ps 46:10) I have read that scripture many times but not really thought about it until I started reading this book. All I need to do is give God control and trust Him.

    We are all a work in progress and work on our imperfections everyday. The good news is that God is in control. We need to give that control back to Him and find peace and confort in knowing that if we don't get something done or it doesn't go the right way, that the world won't end. "The more secure a woman is, the less likely she will need to be in control."

    I highly recommend this book to every woman to feel secure in theirselves and let God be in control. He has this. He doesn't need our help and we don't need to get in His way. At the end of each chapter are discussion questions that I would encourage readers to use as you begin to heal from being a controlling woman.

    I received a copy of this amazing book from The BookClub NetWork for an honest review.

    Kendall says we women have it in our DNA to be controlling. We want to take over God's job. She'd rather we surrender to God our attempts to run the universe, or at least our part of it. She encourages us to rest from our vain aspirations.

    This book hit hard. She covers so many areas we women need to work on. Kendall helps us understand where the desire to be a junior God comes from. She reveals our self-deceptions. She helps us identify it's fuel. She helps us with the temptation to be a yes person, trying to do it all. She shows how we want to be omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. She shows how the push for excellence in all we do can be a problem, as is trying to be the quintessential peacemaker. She identifies the characteristics of wanting to be God's personal assistant. She helps us build confidence in God's sovereignty. She identifies the fatigue of a lifetime of trying to be in control. She gives steps a recovering control freak can take.

    This is a great book. Kendall nails the issue. I am impressed with all of the aspects of being controlling she has covered, from walking on egg shells to being a nag. There were some surprises in the book too. She explains how working to avoid pain by trying to control the universe actually has a great cost emotionally and spiritually and reveals a lack of faith in a sovereign God. And this on worrying about the future, Grace is not available for the things that might happen. (59) I also learned about Christian blackmail and being a spiritual paramedic.

    Kendall herself is a recovering control freak. She has great stories from her own experience to illustrate her principles. She includes good teaching from the Bible too.

    If you have an exalted sense of responsibility, read this book. If you think you could do a better job of running the universe than God, read this book. If you have delusions of personal sovereignty, read this book. If you think you have your life so together you don't need to read this book, read this book. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter so it would be a good book for a group study.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
