Wow. This book has been a life changer, a wake up call, and at the same time a calming reassurance to me. If you're like most women, it will be for you, too. Do you crave control for yourself, your husband, your children, or your future? Do you search for ways of "helping" God? I had no idea but my whole life has been revolved around CONTROL. In fact, I could be the poster child for CONTROL GIRL. I'm not saying this with pride, I'm saying it with a heavy heart. It turns out that many women in the Bible were Control Girls, too. Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge and then "guided" Adam to do the same (control), Rachel had her servant sleep with Abraham to "help God" with His promise of children (control), and on and on. This book isn't guilt inducing, though, it's more like a friend advising you to release your burden of control and trust that God is the one in control- always. He doesn't need our assistance or input, ladies. He just needs our obedience and trust. My goodness, I struggle with this! But so has Shannon Popkin and she knows exactly what Control Girls struggle with every day.
I absolutely devoured this book! Each lesson left an impression on my heart. I relaxed and leaned into the Lord instead of frantically thinking of ways to "help" Him. The burden of control is immense and stressful and I was beyond ready to let it go. I just didn't know it. Reading Control Girl was one of the best things I ever did for myself. Take time and read it yourself and you'll see what I mean. :)
