MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES TONIA WYNETTE
We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 NLT)
Just recently, on a Friday morning just after 10 a. m. CST in the third week of September, Tonia Wynette had just arrived to work and was in the process of getting settled in.
Just as she was about to begin her day, she suddenly began to hear from God unlike never before.
For what it’s worth, this accomplished and resourceful Corporate America professional had no choice but to pause and lend her ear to that about which was directed toward her.
“With obstacles comes progress,” a dear friend told Wynette during a phone conversation as she tuned in with pure wonderment.
And just like that, Wynette essentially was introduced to the purpose for which God created, was officially introduced to a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.
As it turned out, that point in time is now.
“I’ve always been a nurturer…a bit selfless. I love making others feel good,” Wynette told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “It breaks my heart when I hear people talk down on themselves. If I see sadness in your eyes, I feel obligated to help you to see that there’s something to be grateful for, something to smile about.”
It is due in large part to Wynette’s bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her fervent desire to esteem others highly than herself, that she is thoroughly convinced she’s destined to tackle and embrace yet another awe-inspiring venture at this stage in her life.
A native of Piperton who grew up as a P. K. (widely known as a Preacher’s Kid) — a rural town that is housed in Fayette County, Tennessee and is comprised of roughly 1,445 residents, according to the latest U. S, census — Wynette announced recently her strategic plans to carry out her long-awaited vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker.
For Wynette, 39, it is an endeavor that essentially had been in the works for some time. Now she’s persuaded the time has come to exercise her faith because, after all, faith without works is dead.
“(I aspire to) help uplift and build others, to create an atmosphere where you can come and be yourself. “(I want to) to help you become comfortable with being who you are, to offer a safe place to show your vulnerabilities, and to do all within my power to help rid you of all of the hurt, pain, resentment, uncertainty, low self-esteem, etc., that holds you back and keeps you from being the person God intended you to be.” — Tonia Wynette
If anyone can greatly attest to all sorts of spiritual roadblocks, Wynette undoubtedly can. In fact, given the awesome assignment to which she has been introduced, she doesn’t seem to mind sharing before the world her assortment of past hurdles and obstacles, these seemingly discomforting occurrences that have molded and developed and positioned her to possess the best that God had in store from her from the outset.
“Being a person who’s experienced physical, emotional, verbal and financial abuse, a person who was once shunned for being who I truly am — that (actually) was hurt, anger, and resentment fueled me — but after much prayer and support from those closest to me, love, peace, and forgiveness has sustained me,” Wynette said. “I’ve been encouraging and building individuals that I see or feel are in need of it from as early as high school. Professionally, I’m just starting.”
What better time to start than now, especially considering she’s thoroughly convinced that it was God Who was working diligently behind the scenes on her behalf all along?
“This is something God has put on my heart and in my heart, but if I must give credit to any human being, it’d have to be my father, Pastor Tommie L. Watkins,” Wynette said. “He is the most selfless person I know. He’s spent his years, from as early as I remember, leading, helping, encouraging, praying for and building others up.”
Interestingly and to her credit, Wynette seemed destined not only walk in the footsteps of her father but, most importantly, to help advance the kingdom with God, her Helper, leading the way.
“There are people going to their graves everyday with gifts that have yet to be utilized, hearts filled with love that they were too afraid to give,” Wynette said. “There are hurt people, broken people, depressed people, people who can’t and don’t realize their worth simply because of abuse, depression, and low self-esteem. This shouldn’t be.
“God has a purpose for your life,” Wynette continued. “Gifts created just for you. I want people to see it. There are no nobodies on this earth. God created everybody to be somebody special. I just want to be one of the tools He uses to get that message across for as far as He allows my voice and physical presence to reach.”
And just like that, she’s effectively embracing the purpose for which God created, effectively embracing a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.
As it turned out, that point in time is now.
