Control Girl~ A Book All Ladies & Girls Should Read

This is one book I highly recommend to ladies of all ages. I can't remember when I have read a book that could be more helpful. It seems like little girls are just born as natural controllers......I know I sure was and still struggle with this control issue. It was mother Eve who passed it down and we sure manage to keep it going. 

Shannon does a great job comparing how the girls of the Bible had their own struggle with control. Yet each time the control girls of the Bible took matters into their own hands they suffered along with those they loved and those who came after them all the way down to me and you. 

I like what she writes here:
  • A Control Girl detaches from God. A Jesus Girl relies on Him.
  • A Control Girl breaks God's rules. A Jesus Girl embraces the Bible's instructions.
  • A Control Girl trusts her own perspective. A Jesus Girl defers to God's viewpoint.
So many times we like to think we are just being a great wife, mom or Christan when we micro- manage, manipulate and control but it is just not so.  We need to give up our control and manipulation and let God work.

I plan on using this book for a group Bible study. I love this book and it was provided to me for my honest review.


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.
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.
