Are You Burying Your Gifts?
I help "Insanely Gifted" Christian entrepreneurs and innovators like you who find themselves running away from their creativity for fear of being misunderstood.
Not only will you become a bridge between the secular and sacred. You will reclaim and reignite your creative genius while becoming a walking permission slip for others who desire to be their authentic self. I believe Dr. Seuss said it best:
"You have to be odd to be number one."
Being odd means that you don’t blend in completely with the status quo. It means that what works for and applies to others does not always work for or apply to you.
I am here to help you FIND, FINANCE, and FULFILL your God-given destiny and you don't have to pretend to be anyone else to do it.
Ignoring a problem never makes it go away… it only makes things worse, and ultimately harder to solve. The good news is that you’ve come to the right place to jumpstart your life! The difference between staying where you are indefinitely, and moving forward to realize your potential, is all about taking action.

Spiritual direction is a key discipline for Christian leaders which offers a safe place for attending to one's ongoing process of transformation and surrender to God. As Thomas Merton says, "The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a man's life, to get behind the façade of conventional gestures and attitudes which he presents to the world, and to bring out his inner spiritual freedom, his inmost truth, which is what we call the likeness of Christ in his soul" (Spiritual Direction and Meditation).
WON WOMEN MINISTRIES is a Christian spiritual formation ministry based out of Oklahoma.
Our vision is to see you as a follower of Christ grow in the fullness of God, encounter Him and be transformed more and more into His likeness.
We walk alongside you in this pursuit by offering spiritual direction, connecting/discipleship and networking with other like-minded folks, leading and curating retreats, and creating resources for spiritual formation.
"Let me start off by saying that I absolutely love Shonda! She speaks directly to me. As a Christian and creative myself, I must admit that I’ve wondered where I truly belong in God’s plan. I find myself almost running away from the first I know that I have, in order to avoid the misconception of how I must do or say things. She brings so much light to the struggles of loving God, the desire to do His works, but the uncertainty of how to move forward. The knowledge that she offers, tying the Word with your points of view, offered a clear understanding of what creativity truly is"
"Omg! Shonda you get it! You get the disconnect that the church has with the world. I love that you bravely stepped into the gap and spoke the truth. God is creative. He is the author of creativity! People are what pervert his standard, however, everything that may have a different toon doesn’t make it “secular” or “sinful”. I believe we today as the body of Christ can benefit from this very teaching! Outstanding job lining up the fact to defeats the lies we have been taught."
I saw Shonda speak live the first time at the I Am Enough in Christ women's conference. She was amazing! Her message was the woman at the well with Jesus. We as women think because we have baggage like the woman at the well that Jesus won't even talk to us. Shonda dressed up like the woman wrote out words on name tags that we think of ourselves, put them all over her face and outfit. This was a great visual of ho no one is perfect and Jesus loves us the way He made us.
