Control Girl
About the book (provided by Litfuse)
Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from 7 Women in the Bible (January 2017, Kregel)

Tension, anger, fear, anxiety—it all begins with a heart that craves control.
Little fights with your husband and kids. Unhappiness when things don’t match your version of perfect. When your perspective of how life should go replaces God’s, you doom your quest for security, peace, and joy before it even starts.
Thankfully, there is a better way.
Join Shannon as she shares what she has discovered about her own control struggles and
about God from studying seven Control Girls in the Bible. Whether it was Eve’s desire to know instead of trust, Sarah’s inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah’s controlling hand on her family’s future, each of these women’s stories contain warnings and lessons for us today.
Learn how you too can lay down this burden of trying to control everything and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.

And I thought
A great resource for all women.  We all seem to have areas that we feel a need to control.  Which is not unlike some of the women of the Bible.  To 'control' seems to be an ageless 
The author begins the by detailing 'the path of a Control Gil'.
Followed by separate chapters featuring 7 women of the Bible 
Eve, Sarah, Hagar,Rebekah,Leah,Rachel and Miriam. 
Ending with Control Girl To Jesus just the title of the final chapter is/was an encouragement to this reader. 
Each chapter is easy to read with short sections breaking the chapters up making them easy to read in short spurts of time. 
Each chapter ends with questions to ponder. 

This would be an excellent book for a group study.
