Meet the SWHW Team:




Years ago, Michelle noticed how easily women can become focused more on getting things done rather than on what matters most. What would happen if women could find a place that steadied their aim on the God-designed work being called out of them? At She Works His Way, we’re discovering the answer to that everyday. Michelle launched this non-profit discipleship community for working women to strengthen churches and stir one another up to love and good works. Michelle puts practical steps to the ultimate goal of working for the glory of God and the good of others. She and her co-founder/best friend, Somer, recently released a book, She Works His Way: A Practical Guide to What Matters Most in a Get Things Done World.

You’ll find Michelle in Asheville, NC with her husband, James, and three kids, Noah, Cole and Shea. (And, not to be left out, the newest addition – their pup, Knox!)



Somer spent the first half of her career building the businesses of others, and the second half building and selling a few business of her own – all of which equipped her with the tools required to come alongside women who want their work to matter from an eternal perspective. Somer’s passionate about discipleship and helping women step boldly into their God-given gifts and callings. Combine that with being best friends with Michelle and coming on as She Works His Way’s cofounder was an obvious next step. And releasing the She Works His Way: A Practical Guide to What Matters Most in a Get Things Done World book with Michelle, too? No-brainer.

You’ll find Somer in Annapolis, MD with her husband, Kent, and their two daughters, Kennedi and Ava. (No pups on their end, Somer prefers a dog-hair free environment.)

God has directed Lisa’s heart toward high school and young adult women, where she hopes to encourage the next generation of Christian women toward authentic, peace-filled, and life-lasting faith in the God who calls us by name.
