As women, we aren’t trying to exasperate anyone. We only control because we care! We’re invested! We feel an urgency—a responsibility, even—to make everything turn out right. But the more we clamp down on the people we love or the outcomes we can’t live without, the more miserable everyone becomes (us, included). Thankfully, God offers a better way.

Join Shannon as she helps you get perspective on control, yourself, and God. You’ll leave with practical steps for loosening your sweaty grip on life’s outcomes, and unloading your burdens into the big, wise hands of the One who truly is in control.
