Control Girl by Shannon Popkin {A Review}

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.

 

 


Me  We all strive for control, and shudder when we lose control. We make ourselves ill pursuing and pushing for control of our lives and the lives of those around us. We think we have to or life will fall apart. But really we’re just deluding ourselves. 

Shannon Popkin discusses this in her devotional/Bible study book, Control Girl. She discusses 7 women from the Bible and how we can learn from their example to release our desire for control. 

My personal thoughts: I thought it was more fluff than substance. Its a great topic and one that we all need to hear and apply, but this book was just lacking some meat for my taste. But that is just my experience with this book, you might really love it! You should order it, or purchase it and read it for yourself. Then come back here and tell me what you thought about the book. 

 

I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse. All thoughts are my own.
