I have heard Shannon speak on multiple occasions, and each time I have come away inspired. Her humorous anecdotes and relatable style open hearts to hear biblical truth in a way that's engaging, practical, and motivational.

Rochelle Visser, Director of Ministry

Shannon is Biblically based and related well to the women! We saw practical application as well as added knowledge - a perfect fit for a camp retreat!

She also interacted so well with the women, we didn't feel like she was "better than us" which we really appreciated!

Shannon came to KBC to do a mini-retreat as a follow-up to our Women's study of her book, "Comparison Girl." I loved Shannon's openness and honesty on the struggles that she and women face in our lives to try to live Me-free in this Measure-up world. Shannon did a great job of relating to a wide-range of ages (12-80). Our ladies were blessed to have Shannon share from God's Word how we can pour out our lives into others rather than focusing on the lines and seeing how we measure up.

I have had the privilege of hearing Shannon speak & interacting with her on 2 occasions, & both times, I have been blessed by her honest, loving way of communicating & sharing the love of Jesus - on & off stage alike! She is professional, but so relatable, and is a joy to work with on the details involved with preparations for her visit (as is her Ministry Assistant, Erika!) Her books are engaging & reflective of the beautiful heart of the woman who wrote them. Our ladies at our recent retreat had only great things to say about Shannon. I highly recommend Shannon as a wise & wonderful choice for your next ladies' retreat or conference!

Lisa Ryder, Women's Ministry Team

Excellent women's conference speaker! Shannon is genuine, relatable, and biblically grounded. Her love and care for women was evident as she spoke on "Control Girl" and also chatted and prayed with women between sessions. She really challenged the ladies to surrender whatever God might be calling them to surrender and to walk away taking simple, active steps to change and apply what they had learned. Shannon was a joy to work with, and we would highly recommend her as a speaker.

Shannon Popkin is a speaker who keeps her audience engaged while delivering challenging concepts to ponder. The message is delivered in such a way that was clearly understood by young and old alike, and hit us in a way that we could all relate to in her kind, loving style. Her stories, analogies and Biblical references were spot on with tangible ways to live these concepts out in our everyday lives.

Shannon is so wonderful! She was witty, energetic, open, and her love for the truth of God’s Word and applying it to her life was evident in her message to the women at our church. Her joy in the Lord is real!

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!

Shannon joined us remotely to wrap up the last segment of our 2019 women's retreat and she was AWESOME! She connected to each of us and challenged us to loosen our grip and trust God is in control. She had some great stories, and shared scripture that just hit it home. We highly recommend her!

Denise Perry - Womens Retreat Director

Shannon was the keynote speaker for our Fall Womens Retreat. During this weekend, 500 women heard her speak at 4 general sessions and two morning devotionals. Her content from her book,CONTROL GIRL, blended perfectly with our theme of Surrender. Shannon’s biblical knowledge, coupled with a sense of humor, warmth yet professionalism proved to be a winning combination. Prior to our event, Shannon was an absolute joy to work with. She made herself very assessable and was quick to respond to any communication request I had. One of our core values at SpringHill is that we are relationally focused. Shannon emulated this value and made herself available throughout the weekend far beyond the podium and merchandise table. She enjoyed spending time with the women at meals, the concert, and other activities on and around the property. 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.

Shannon has chosen topics that are relevant to all women today and is gifted in sharing those topics, not only in her books, but also in speaking. She has the ability to keep our interest with props and stories but most of all, brings spiritual lessons with Scripture and Biblical principles.

Peggy Campbell, Director of Women’s Ministry

Our ladies loved our evening with Shannon! She’s warm, approachable and willing to share lessons learned from her own life experiences. She challenged us to examine our lives in the area of control through the story of Eve and exhorted us to stop trying to control people and things in our lives. Our attempts at control creates conflict not peace.
I think every woman could relate to Shannon’s message and went away more aware of her bent to control and manipulate. The answer is trust God! Surrendering all those areas we seek to control and entrusting them to Him. He is worthy of our trust!

Shannon spoke this summer at our fundraising event for Maranatha Bible and Missionary Conference in Norton Shores, MI. I enjoyed planning the event with her so the theme (Flipped: Living Upside Down in a Measure Up World) was carried through our table decorations, favors, and selfie station. Shannon's presentation caught the attention of all ladies from 5-85. She was a pleasure to work with and I would love to invite her back again.

I have been blessed by Shannon both through her Control Girl book and her speaking presentations at our recent women's retreat. She walked us through the path of moving from a control girl to a Jesus girl and how we can look to Jesus when we want to try to take control. She easily connected with my church family of women and she was easy to accommodate.

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.

Shannon spoke at our Moms Connected group, for moms of teens and tweens, on the topic of control. Her talk was engaging, authentic, humorous while not skipping over the challenge of parenting this age group. As moms, we walk a fine line of influencing of kids versus controlling them and Shannon covered this topic well. I would highly recommend her!

Shannon is a wonderful speaker for any group of women. She combines humor, personal stories and Biblical truths when she speaks. You know instantly that she struggles with her topic of control and is not just commenting on a problem she sees from a distance. I would highly recommend Shannon to speak to your group.

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.

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.

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.
