“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is The Lord’s purpose that prevails." - Proverbs 19:21.
My name is Sonya Woodard. Since founding Girls of Transformation, I have been honored to be in the position to help other young ladies with backgrounds like mine. I am grateful for the guidance and want to use my experiences and education to impact the lives of other young ladies. My passion is to see young girls flourish into purpose-driven women. I believe knowing your purpose is the start to your life’s work and sharing your true gifts.
When I was a teenager, I got in trouble, I made poor choices, and I wasn’t doing great in school. My parents didn’t know what to do with me. They were fed up, and I was confused, angry, and hopeless.
But then I found Jesus Christ. That’s when my transformation started. And it has carried me to where I am now. True transformation begins in the heart, with God’s love, and is completely done through Jesus Christ. I believe that transformation is available to everyone who is willing to have faith by putting in hard work and dedication.
We have many plans for our life, but ultimately it’s The Lord’s purpose that will triumph. It’s never too late to fulfill your purpose - and I know that because I’ve lived it. It’s not where you start, but where you finish that matters. And purpose, paired with faith and a strong mentor, are what you need to finish strong.
For the past 15 years, I have worked with youth to share my testimony of all that life has to offer once you can start to bring your purpose into sight. All our programs at Girls of Transformation
come from my own personal transformation - my own becoming a better daughter, sister, student, and now wife, mother, community member, and steward of Christ’s love.
What we offer at Girls of Transformation comes from the heart, and from my own story.
I’m a woman of purpose. I started this organization so I could equip young ladies like those in your life with the proper tools they’ll need to travel down the path of greatness. This is a most humbling and exciting privilege, for which I am most grateful.
I hope you’ll join us, get involved, and share this important work of empowering young girls to
become women of purpose
