Some women are encouraged to be anything they want to be and are pushed to work harder to have it all. But can women truly do it all? Shannon Litton, President of The A Group, talks about her leadership roles at work, home and church and encourages women to embrace the way God has uniquely created them as they daily choose the things that are most important to them. 

Shannon is a wife, mother, entrepreneur, strategist and idea igniter. She works with nonprofits, authors and organizations to create and implement strategic plans that move them to the next level. 


Shannon said, "When we embrace those things that God has uniquely gifted to us as women, I think it makes us incredibly successful as leaders.

In this video, Shannon encourages women to disregard the divider between serving and working and encourages them to serve intentionally in their work, regardless of what they are doing.


Shannon challenge was to "reclaim the spaces that most believers feel uncomfortable." What spaces do you normally occupy? Where do you go regularly? How can you intentionally bring "the missional element" into that?
