About Shannon

Hello! 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. I’m so excited about my new book, Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible,  which released in January, 2017. With God’s help, I’m on a path that leads from Control Girl to Jesus Girl.

As a speaker, I often combine my love for humor and storytelling and with my passion for Jesus and the truth of God’s Word. I speak for ladies’ events, retreats, and moms groups. (More info here.) Here on my blog, I share stories from my life as a wife and mom, which I hope will make you smile and encourage you to follow Jesus more closely. I also share posts from the other sites that I contribute to, including Revive Our Hearts (True Woman).

I’m happy to be sharing life with Ken, who–after 21 years–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.

If you’re interested, I’d love to have you sign up below to receive updates and announcements, along with some subscriber-only freebies and giveaways. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please use the comment form to let me know if there is some way I can serve you or your church.

Warmly,
