Many women have a compulsion to make everything turn out just right and are willing to do anything to make it happen. But this unbalanced pursuit of control can make those around them anxious and defensive.
In this encouraging book, Shannon invites seven ‘Control Girls’ from the Bible into the conversation. She examines each story for the moments in which grasping for control circumvented God's plans for good, whether it was Eve's desire to know instead of to trust, Sarah's inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah's controlling hand on her family's future.
Finally, Shannon finds God's perspective on each of the problems and then reveals how readers can have their own happy endings in similar situations.
