Publisher's Summary

Little fights with your husband and kids. Unhappiness when things don't match your version of perfect. Tension, anger, fear, anxiety - it all begins with a heart that craves control. 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.

A book for every woman/mom/wife...

Shannon Popkin is a true story teller. As she is transparent about her own life, I find that I am able to more authentically search my own heart and actions. Control is a universal and timeless language for woman, and this book clarifies how it manifests in my own life. Shannon carefully and lovingly illustrates how we can turn control over to God and confidently trust him with every aspect of life. This book speaks much about marriage and parenting.

Convicting and Engaging

Any Jesus Girl can relate to some aspect of seeking control in their life. I was spellbound by stories I already knew from scripture, but told in a fresh new way with personal connection. This book was truly God inspired.

REALITY CHECK for someone who is losing it

I was having a hard time with control or shall I say a moment in life where I had no control and lost control of the woman I worked so hard to become. I knew I had to do something and clear my mind and why searching for a good read, I stumbled upon this audiobook and read the summary and thought " everyone always say read about the women and this Bible," so I figured this was exactly what I needed and boy was it. I found control again and I actually purchased the paperback book so I can go back and mark it up. This book definitely help me understand who truly have control over my life and to stop thinking I have to fix everything. This has helped me in my dating situation, my work situation, and just my spirit and energy and so much more at peace. I love how this book is not that "HOLIER THAN THOU" book but a reality and helpful guide from the stories of the women in the Bible. TRUST ME, this will be a book I will gift to all my friends. Thank you Shannon
