Hey, 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 happy to be sharing life with Ken, who–after 23 years–still makes me laugh every day. Together, we live the fast paced life of parenting two college-aged kids and a teen.

Lindsay is a student at Liberty University (my alma mater!), Cole graduated in ’18 and is participating in a gap year missions school, and Cade is a freshman in high school. As a mom, I love cheering my kids on from the sidelines, and taking pictures of them (can you hear them groaning?). As a family, we love to open our front door to family and friends, here in West Michigan, and we are deeply invested in Ada Bible Church. We are so thankful to be part of a ministry where God’s Word is central and people are welcome.

I’m so excited about how God has been using my book, Control Girl: Lessons on Surrendering Your Burden of Control from Seven Women in the Bible, in the lives of women across the country. With God’s help, I’m on a path that leads from Control Girl to Jesus Girl–and I love it that so many are joining me. 

This year (2019) I’ve been working on a new Bible study, titled Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus to Flip the Script on Your Measure-Up Mindset. I’m amazed at all the God has been showing me about comparing from his perspective, rather than the world’s. To receive release information (likely early 2020), please make sure you’re on my email list

As a speaker, I love to combine my gifts for humor and storytelling 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).
