My First Book!
WATERING HER GROWTH
The Flourishment of Your Divine Feminine.
Watering her Growth is spellbinding Spiritual Narrative Nonfiction, which leads women to self-discovery and healing. Shontel believes that when we suppress the darker parts of ourselves and don't address our traumas we disconnect from our feminine essence. Spirituality without Shadow Work isn’t Spirituality.
Watering Her Growth takes you down a hidden spiritual journey as the author overcomes and transforms out of the most distressing traumas into harmony with her life's purpose. Through vivid storytelling, She teaches women how to weave back to their roots so that they can connect to the Divine Feminine and heal their mind, body, and spirit as one. While Shontel walks you through her life, she imprints your mind and plants seeds of wisdom she gained through each experience. Each chapter guides you into self-examination and by example, she exhibits how you too can turn pain into power and water your own growth.
