Have you ever noticed that you struggle for control? Maybe you just care a little extra about how your spouse loads the dishwasher. Maybe you struggle a little more to recover when life goes a different way than you were planning. Maybe you have trouble letting your kids make mistakes. Or maybe your marriage feels like a battle for leadership more than it feels like a partnership towards a united goal.

Today on the podcast, we have the opportunity to welcome Shannon Popkin, author of both Comparison Girl and Control Girl and host of the “Live Like It’s True” podcast. From the platform, page, and podcast mic, Shannon Popkin wants to invite you to drink deeply of God’s story, and live like it’s true.

Today, Shannon shares with us:

Why so many of us struggle to let go of control
What it looks to identify the emotion or sin that is behind the desire to control
How unity in our roles in marriage help us become better partners
How to find peace in God’s provision and plan
And more!

We hope you enjoy this episode!
