“Don’t be afraid. God is for you. Nothing is impossible with Him.” Shannon Popkin made those three points in her speaking engagement at my church a couple years ago, and they’ve stuck with me all this time.
That was the first time I met Shannon. That’s how she is – memorable. I sense God’s Spirit in her words, spoken and written. A beyond normal impact. She is encouraging, funny, and real. So when she wrote a book called Control Girl, I was happy to help spread the word. (You can read my review here.)
Here’s a snippet from Shannon’s website:
For years, I failed to see that I had any control issues at all. I thought of myself as invested. Concerned. Just trying to help. I only took matters into my own hands because I cared so much! The last word I would have chosen to describe myself was “controlling”. Besides, nobody told me outright that I was controlling–not even my husband. Yet, there were signs….Anger, anxiety, fear, perfectionism… They were all erupting from a heart that craved control.Does this sound like you? If so, don’t despair. I have good news for you AND I have tools to help.
In an ironic encounter with my own control issues, I got to hear Shannon speak about her book before I read it. Just recently I shared the story with Shannon, and she is featuring it on her website today!
