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 graduating from Liberty with an accounting degree, Cole is a freshman in college, and Cade is a sophomore 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 am delighted with every opportunity I get to invite women to live like God’s word is true. 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.)

My latest project is a new book called Comparison Girlreleasing May 2020, with Kregel. To receive release information, please make sure you’re on my email list!

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).

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please contact me if there is some way I can serve you or your church.
