Shannon’s biblical knowledge, coupled with a sense of humor, warmth yet professionalism proved to be a winning combination. Shannon was an absolute joy to work with and made herself available throughout the weekend far beyond the podium and merchandise table. It is with great joy that I recommend Shannon Popkin as a speaker to your event ~ you will be blessed in the process of ministering together.

Denise Perry

Women's Retreat Director, Spring Hill

Shannon was a great fit for our ladies retreat. The ladies loved her practical insights and Biblical frame of reference. She taught with vulnerability and confidence and the response was tremendous.

Ken Riley

Executive Director, Lake Ann

Shannon is so easy to relate to! Her authenticity and humble attitude bring us to a place of common ground where the Lord can move! The event she did with us was very powerful, especially at the end when we all surrendered something, wrote it down and took the index card to the altar. So powerful! Shannon approaches topics that get to the root of women’s anger, fear and frustration and she has greatly influenced my life. Thank you, Jesus!

Sarah Heringer

Women's Ministry , Central Baptist in Jonesboro, AR

Engaging, challenging, excellent, encouraging, fantastic and awesome are all words our guests used to describe Shannon. Her message of control will resonate with women at all stages of life as she shares her own experiences and asks them to confront their own control issues and submit to God. She is creative and engages participants on and off stage.

Abby Banfield

Retreat Coordinator, Grace Adventures

Shannon was a joy to work with. She shared her “Control Girl” presentation, perfectly blending humor with biblical teaching in a non-threatening way for our outreach ministry. She is organized, responsive, and presented an open and honest message. I highly recommend Shannon!

Kristen Streepy

Director of Women's Outreach, Chapelstreet Church in Geneva, IL

Shannon was a delight to have at our Christmas brunch. She was warm, engaging, and relatable, and her message resonated with women of all ages in attendance. She did a beautiful job of clearly presenting the truth of Jesus and making much of Him!

Kristi Stephens

Women's Ministry Director , The Chapel in North Canton, OH

I am not one to give all highest marks, but Shannon really deserves it. She used Scripture to back-up her message, she spent time with the ladies on retreat between sessions, she was open and honest. Her humility and desire to serve were beautiful. I highly recommend you invite her to your next Women’s event.
Laura Valette

Executive Assistant, Cran-Hill Ranch

Shannon was absolutely amazing. She connected with our women, her words were true and brought so much hope for our relationships with family and with Jesus! Shannon was well prepared, and very professional yet, was able to enjoy herself as she engaged with the women at the retreat! I couldn’t recommend Shannon enough!
Carly Yandell

Ministry Coordinator , Living Life Church, Muskegon, MI

Shannon is a fantastic speaker in both her content and presentation style. The women in our group found her engaging, relatable, and encouraging. She speaks with authenticity and wisdom. Highly recommend!
Carolyn Kersten

Ministry Associate Director, Trinity Church in Lansing, MI

A true Bible Study teacher, Shannon is passionate about bringing powerful messages of inspiration to women. She is an expert storyteller and a delight to listen to.
Robyn Dykstra

Christian Speaker and Author of The Widow Wore Pink

We had Shannon speak at one of our events and really appreciated her vulnerability as she shared her own story of control. She was easy to relate to and I found myself challenge and encouraged by what she shared. It’s clear Shannon loves God, has a deep relationship with Him and desires others to have that as well.
Kristi Huseby

Women's Ministry Director, Ada Bible Church, Knapp Campus, Grand Rapids, MI

Shannon’s presentation was real, relatable, and tangible. I really feel like, wow, there is hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I don’t have to control it. I was in counseling for eight months for anxiety/anger and nothing helped; there was no relief. In one hour, it isn’t perfect, but I have finally come to realize what the issue is and I have learned more about myself and what God wants of me than ever before. It’s nice to hear that I’m not alone in this struggle and that it can be fixed, without medication, but with Jesus.                                                                                                                        
A MOPS Attendee

God has gifted Shannon with a message that impacts women of all ages, whether new to faith or seasoned. She speaks with wisdom and humor, infusing Biblical characters with life that makes them relatable in new ways. She is passionate about caring for ladies and interacts with them, making each instantly feel like a new friend.

When speaking, Shannon engages audiences, leading them to make a step of faith. What is most impactful about Shannon’s ministry is that she is led by the Spirit to meet the needs of each group uniquely.  

Debbie Jo Schwartz

(formerly) Women's Ministry Events Director , Ada Bible Church, Grand Rapids, MI

The way Shannon presented, last month, on serving our husbands, children, etc. as serving the Lord has totally stuck with me. While my attitude and position towards caring for my family had been (and still us) undergoing a transformation, the way Shannon presented it is with me every morning when I wake up. I count it a joy to get up in the night with my boys (even though I just want to sleep), and rock my youngest when he’s not feeling well. I count it a blessing to be able to stay home and care for our home and fix meals. I look at it as a gift to teach my boys to take of themselves. Shannon was a blessing to my heart!
Karla Ryan

MOPS attendee, Kilpatrick MOPS, Woodland, MI

Women of all ages have come to me after our weekend retreat with Shannon and have told me how much they enjoyed hearing her speak. Shannon’s relatable stories and her humor kept us engaged and helped us to look introspectively into how we try to control our lives while she equipped us with the tools we need to let go of that control and become a “Jesus girl”. Shannon was so attentive to the women the entire weekend.  She engaged them in conversation prior to the start of the event and then throughout each day of the event. Shannon took the time to talk one-on-one and pray with many women at the retreat. It was an absolute pleasure working with Shannon as she is very approachable, accommodating, and clearly focused on doing work for His kingdom!
Kim Joslin

Women's Ministry Director, Springbrook Community Church, Huntley, IL

When Shannon spoke on “Control Girl”, she described my life and my eyes were opened to my controlling ways. God’s Word flowed through Shannon in such a gentle, loving, and relatable way that my heart was soft and open for such sweet conviction.  I will forever be grateful for how God’s hand worked in my life when Shannon spoke.
Sarah Koetsier

Women's Ministry Leader, High Pointe Community Church, Byron Center, MI.

Shannon’s talk is one of the best I’ve heard. I can’t get it out of my head which is a very good thing! I love that our MOPS moms were challenged to consider what a ‘Control Girl’ looks like and whether they might be one. Shannon did a great job interacting with the women and getting them involved in practical ways to move from being master controllers to a place of sweet surrender. In the midst of that she went back to the Garden to beautifully share the Gospel message. Shannon is fun and entertaining while giving great advice and Biblical wisdom.
