Do you ever think, “If everyone would just do what I am telling them to do, then we will all be much happier?
On this episode of Better Together FB Live, I’m talking with Shannon Popkin, author of Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible.
If you’re tired and worn out from trying to fix what you can’t change, join us for this life-giving conversation on how you can let go, trust God and finally sleep at night in peace!

Are you a perfectionist who obsesses over making everything turn out “right”? These negative behaviors often stem from a deep, underlying desire for control.

God never designed for us to live under the burden of trying to control it all. Instead, He invites us to find the peace, security, and joy that come—not from gripping onto control, but from laying it down.

Author Shannon Popkin shares about her struggles with control and the stories of seven Control Girls of the Bible, looking for warnings, lessons, and new insights about God. Learn how you, too, can lay down this burden and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.
