Control Girl by Shannon Popkin is a great book that immediately grabbed my attention and heart. How many of us struggle with control issues? Immediately raises hand! This book will not make you feel alone, and yes, it makes you feel so human. Know that other women have been dealing with the same issues since the beginning of time, but you don't have to keep living this way either. There is victory, and you can find it in the freedom of Christ! I just love this book. I love how Shannon walks us through seven different accounts of women in the Bible who have struggled with the same thing.
She does a great job at entertaining the reader but also providing truth, which is a careful balance. The book is light-hearted but vulnerable, powerful and really asks the reader to look inside themselves and to their maker. It's brilliant, really! I found this book easy to read, enjoyable and I wasn't stressed out thinking "these are all my weaknesses or things I need to change." The book had an ease to it and made me walking away with the idea that these are things I need to let God work inside of me!
I think you will love this book! As a debut author, I cannot wait to read more from Shannon Popkin! As someone who writes in a Biblical based manner, it is something I can get on board with. Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy. A favorable review was not required. I give this book 5/5 stars! Purchase a copy today. You won't be sorry to start this Bible study!
