Shannon Popkin's book is a must read for every Christian woman, especially if you are married. The book goes through seven women of the Bible who struggled with wanting to be in control of their situations. Shannon gives incredible insight through each of the issues they faced, how they reacted, and what was needed instead.
The desire to control started when Eve listened to the serpent and ate the forbidden fruit. Since then, women have been on a slippery slope of their longing to be in control in their marriages, with their kids, in their jobs, etc. The sin is often subtle and women explain it away, but if you take time to read through this book, study the scriptures, and listen to the prompts from the Holy Spirit you might find yourself in need of initiating changes in your heart and attitude.
I highly recommend this book.
