Hi, friend. Thanks for letting me introduce myself.
I’m Shannon Popkin. I’m a wife and mom, a writer and speaker, a small group leader and Bible teacher. With God’s help, I’m on a path that leads from Control Girl to Jesus Girl.
I’m happy to be sharing life with Ken, who–after 20+ years together–still makes me laugh every day. Together, we live the fast paced life of parenting three teens. When I’m not taking pictures from the sidelines at my kids’ sporting events, I love to be opening my front door to friends and family.
I’m so excited about my new book, Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible, which will be published by Kregel Publications in January, 2017.
As a speaker, I love combining my love for humor and storytelling and with my passion for Jesus. I speak for ladies’ events, retreats, and MOPS groups. (More info here.) Here on my blog, I share stories from my life, which I hope will make you smile, and will encourage you to follow Jesus more closely. I also share my posts from the other sites that I contribute to regularly (the True Woman blog and the Dove Parenting Blog), or as a one time guest.
