Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible

Little fights with your husband and kids. Unhappiness when things don’t match your version of perfect. Tension, anger, fear–it all begins with a heart that craves control. When your vision of how life should be replaces God’s vision, 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 Control Girls in the Bible. Learn how you too can lay down this burden and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.

Hott Review:

Hello. My name is Gina and I’m a Control Girl.

Yes, this was a difficult book to read. I didn’t enjoy seeing myself and my actions reflected on the pages on this book. It was heartbreaking.

I read Control Girl as a devotional. I read my Bible and asked for God’s guidance as I took the words of this book into my heart.

Like every other self-help book or devotional Control Girl will only apply to you and help you if you’re looking for God’s hand and guidance in your life. If you’re not willing to grow in your relationship with God and others there is no reason to read this, but if you want to be the you God wants of you read and apply Control Girl to your life.
