“Comparison Girl is a needed resource for today’s women. I love how Shannon takes us through comparison in Scripture, acknowledging how normal it is for us to compare but also providing biblical principles for taking our eyes off of others and directing them to Jesus Christ.” (Brenda Yoder, licensed mental health counselor, speaker, and author of Fledge 2019-11-20)
“If you struggle with measuring up, if you’re worried about what people think, if you dread someone seeing you in a less than ideal situation, then you’re human. We all struggle with comparing ourselves to others. That means we all need Shannon’s honest and wise words on the pages of this book. I know I did, and I’m betting you do too!” (Jill Savage, author of No More Perfect Moms 2019-11-20)
“In Comparison Girl, Shannon Popkin helps us take a fresh and challenging look at the everyday mindsets we wrestle with. Showing us God’s higher ways straight from the life of Jesus, Shannon calls us from our me-focused thinking to His kingdom-focused purposes. After this study and with the power of the Holy Spirit, I won’t allow those thoughts to stay around any longer.” (Lynn Cowell, author of Make Your Move and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries 2020-02-21)
“Comparison is a sneaky issue that can work its way into almost any situation. But is all comparison bad? Through her in-depth study of the Scriptures, Shannon Popkin reveals two sides to this prevalent issue: negative, sinful comparison and positive, biblical comparison. This book convicted me of the sinful tendencies hidden in my heart and encouraged me to view myself and others through the eyes of Christ.” (Kate Motaung, author of A Place to Land 2020-02-22)
“In a sideways-glancing, elbow-jamming, status-grasping culture, Comparison Girl supplies an upside-down approach to an age-old problem. Shannon Popkin exposes the crippling effects that comparison has on our forward motion in the kingdom, yet she also demonstrates how healthy comparison can inspire us to rise up and walk free. Discover how to exchange feelings of superiority for a lifestyle of service and feelings of inferiority for a lifetime of belonging.” (Katie M. Reid, author of Made Like Martha and cohost of The Martha + Mary Show podcast 2020-02-22)
“I am a Comparison Girl. I never wanted to play into the enemy’s plan for dismantling my contentment and peace, and I suspect you don’t want to either. So it’s high time we cast aside our measuring mentality and adopt a new way. Author and dear friend Shannon Popkin expertly walks us through several markers and mistakes of living according to comparison in this measure-up world and gently points us to a better way. Written with humor and brutal honesty, Shannon sheds the pretense and fights for her readers’ hearts with biblical wisdom, humility, and truth. Comparison Girl is a must-read for this generation of girls and the next.” (Nienhuis Lee, speaker, author, and host of the Moms in Prayer podcast 2020-02-22)
“Have you ever felt less than another Christian woman because she seems to love Jesus perfectly and you may have cussed in the church parking lot last weekend? In Comparison Girl, Shannon combines Jesus’s teachings with brilliant spiritual insights and powerful tools like the ‘Disgust Factor Challenge’ that invite you to leave comparison behind in favor of freedom in Christ. If you want to love people more, let go of beating yourself up, and shake off our culture’s me-first mindset, then grab Comparison Girl and gather some friends so you can share this experience together.” (Barb Roose, speaker and author of Surrendered and Winning the Worry Battle 2020-02-22)
“What you’re holding in your hands isn’t a much-needed book; it’s a desperately needed battle plan! With a humble pen and a bold honesty, Shannon invites us to look closely at our subtle ‘comparison game’ and recognize the truth behind it: comparison is not just a harmless habit but an all-out attack on the life we’ve been created to live. Using the very words of Jesus, Shannon shows us how to trade the exhaustion of measure-up comparison for the exhilaration of me-free living. If you’re tired of letting the enemy use comparison to confiscate your joy, steal your significance, and destroy your relationships, this book will equip you to fight back!” (Alicia Bruxvoort, speaker and writer with Proverbs 31 Ministries 2020-02-22) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Shannon Popkin's "Comparison Girl" is a Scripture soaked, story-based Bible study. Shannon's examples are so relatable and I loved Jesus' upside-down red-letter comparisons that she wove into the text. What a relief to see that God looks at the spout and not the lines, that it's possible to have me-free living to love others as Christ would have us do.
When I first started reading, I thought, Is Shannon digging through my trash? Haha! I didn't know anyone else struggled in so many areas. Actually, I didn't know I struggled with comparison as much as I do and I'm truly grateful for this book.
Shannon Popkin does a remarkable job unpacking the idea of being a “Comparison Girl” and then provides ideas and strategies for striving to overcome this potentially destructive behavior.
Our society today creates a world that causes us to want to measure up to those around us. Measuring devices abound both of ourselves, our family members, our home, our jobs, and more. We need to pause and take time to reflect on what Jesus would call us to do and how He examined the heart of people rather than their circumstances.
With a conversational tone and Biblical Scriptures to back up her thoughts, Shannon Popkin does an excellent job of unpacking this subject in a way that made me want to keep on reading.
So if you are looking for a Biblically-based look at the comparison trap, check out this book for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.
The author pulls back the curtains behind the devil's schemes of wanting us to compare ourselves with ourselves - we focus on ourselves. She does NOT say to stop comparing. Instead, she invites us to compare ourselves in a new way - to God's ways of doing things. And God's way is to pour ourselves out. "We are not measuring when we're pouring."
Eye-opening, deep in truth while remaining light-hearted and hopeful, and immediately applicable. Highly recommend.
Shannon, thank you for being God’s pen in writing Comparison Girl! It “Hits the SPOT” of every human heart and reveals the heart of God through His Word! Praying God will use it Mightily!! I’ll do my part to spread the Word! Hope to meet you in the NEAR future!
