About the book:
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.

I really enjoyed "Control Girl" and it fit perfectly with a study my Sunday School is currently working through on being content. This book focused on surrendering our need to have control in all areas of our lives, our homes, our children, our husbands, our relationships, our work. Shannon draws examples from women in the Bible to help each of us learn how to surrender the control, (or try to in some areas!), in order to live lives that are filled with peace and joy. Shannon also shares her heart and her humor which makes this an excellent read as it is not "preachy" or lecturing, but a fun and inspiring read, but still gets the point across. I loved really learning about these women, as a different perspective is offered and I felt like I really got to know them and who they were, instead of just a tidbit of what they each are well-known for. Sarah, Miriam and Leah were my favorite chapters, although I really enjoyed the entire book. This is one I am going to read again and revisit often. I highly recommend this for individual and small group study.
