To the Woman Who Wants Sweeter Relationships

  1. I could so relate to your story of wanting to instill respect into our children and taking matters into my hands. Love the way your story turned out. For me, it really goes down to me respecting and honoring their Daddy first … something I need prayer for daily. 🙂

  2. I don’t have kids, but I can relate to wanting to control someone’s behavior. We can’t, really, can we? All we can control is our own reaction to it.

    I like how you brought the lesson home through illustrating a real-life scenario.

    1. Diane, what you said. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! Pretty much anyone that isn’t doing what I want them to do is fair game. Hahaha 😉 Controlling my own reactions in a way that brings sweet results is really only possible with His help.

  3. Pearl, thanks so much for this story. I love both the way you told it and the way it powerfully lays open the truth! Excellent job, my friend! 🙂

    So glad to have you with me on the “Control Girl to Jesus Girl” journey!

    1. Shannon! So sorry for the slow response! I recently installed a new commenting plugin and realized it doesn’t alert me to new comments anymore! (ARGH!) Thank you so much for your kind words; they mean so much coming from you. I’m grateful for the help you provide recovering Control Girls. Lifelong journey for sure!

  4. What a great review. I so want to read this book. And you and I are so much alike, Pearl – and our husbands are so alike too! We’ve had very similar exchanges, and I always come away humbled and wanting a little of his maddening mercy to rub off on me. Love you, sister!

    1. Rebekah, sister, I’m sending you a hug right now! I love the things we share in common. Do you have a kindle? It’s the most inexpensive option right now on amazon for $2.51. (About as much as I pay in fines for late library books! Haha)

  5. What a profound story! Love the quote about submission not being submission until you disagree.

    Looking forward to reading this book and more of your posts ?
