Blog tour: Control Girl book review and Giveaway with Shannon Popkin

Alexis A. Goring’s review of Control Girl by Shannon Popkin:

Welcome! You’ve reached my stop on the Litfuse blog tour for Control Girl by Shannon Popkin. 

The full title to Popkin’s book is, Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible, and she stays true to it. 

This is a book about learning how to “let go and Let God” as many people in Christian circles say. It may sound like a cliché but it is such an important skill to learn and apply to your life. 

Popkin shares stories from her personal life as a wife and mother throughout this book. She’s real, honest, raw and her message will touch your heart. She touches on the lives of women who lived in the era that is written about in The Holy Bible. Her insights about these women of faith who lived back then are powerful! The way that she ties in their real-life situations with present day realities for women is very inspiring. She knows how to make a connection between the faith of Bible characters like Sarah who was impatient in waiting on God’s promise for her to bear a child, and Leah who was unloved by her husband…and use that connection to teach the reader lessons which women can learn today from those who lived in the past. 

Popkin challenges her reader to let go of how they think that their life should be and trust God to provide His perfect peace and trust that He knows best. 

The author shares her struggles and discoveries that she’s learned in her own faith journey with God. Her honesty and fearlessness in sharing personal stories from her life story is inspiring. 

Popkin does everything that she can in this book to encourage women and motivate them to lay down the “burden of trying to control everything and find rest in surrendering to the One who is truly in control”. 

This book is worth a four-star rating and definitely worth sharing!
