About the Author-

Shannon Popkin has blogged on her website and also on  She is currently married, has children, and is a speaker and teacher.

My thoughts-

There were a lot of wonderful parts to this book.  I liked the short lessons about each of the women and the discussion questions.  It gave me a lot to think about.  I could see myself in several of the women.  I know that I need to change and no longer be a control girl. 

One of the best parts of Control Girl was all of the Bible verses that needed to be looked up and read.  There were several times that I was so caught up in the women’s stories that I read much further than I needed to.  I was really getting into the word of God.

This was a great book.  I highly recommend it to all women.  After reading it you will begin to become the woman God wants you to be.
