Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible
Control Girl is an awesome book! It explores why we, as women, have a hard time when it comes to surrendering control of many areas in our lives. Shannon (author) writes about seven women in the Bible who also had control issues. She tells us how we can apply those lesson to our own lives! All women should read this book! I am so happy that I did.
Little fights with your husband and kids. Unhappiness when things don’t match your version of perfect. Tension, anger, fear, anxiety–it all begins with a heart that craves control. 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.
There is so much information in this book! This is a book that you can read again and again and keep learning from. I learned a lot from this book and you can too. We can learn a lot from the seven women mentioned in this book. We just have to be ready to learn!
