Do you feel the need to control everyone and everything? Shannon Popkin has written a book a book about seven different women from the Bible who felt the need to control everything around them.

About the Author-
Shannon Popkin has blogged on her website ShannonPopkin.com and also on TrueWomen.com. She is currently married, has children, and is a speaker and teacher.
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.
