Book Release Celebration
Thursday, January 26 at 7:00pm
Join Shannon as she shares what she has discovered about her own control struggles and about God from studying seven Control Girls in the Bible. Whether it was Eve’s desire to know instead of trust, Sarah’s inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah’s controlling hand on her family’s future, each of these women’s stories contain warnings and lessons for us today.
Learn how you too can lay down this burden of trying to control
everything and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.
Shannon Popkin is a wife and mom, a speaker and teacher, and a leader of small group studies. She's been published by Family Fun, MOMsense, Focus on the Family Magazine, and other outlets. She is a contributing blogger for True Woman.com and has blogged for several years at shannonpopkin.com.
To Joey with Love
Saturday, January 28 at 7:00pm
Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey and Rory wanted more to life...so they chose less, simplifying their lives and placing their music career on hold. They planted roots deep into the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved.
They believed God would give them a great story . . . and He did.
From the arrival of their daughter Indiana, who was born with Down Syndrome, through Joey's struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer, this inspiring true story of hope and faith is a love story for the ages.
