Women's History Month Spotlight Interview

Please introduce and tell us about yourself.

I am Shelby Frederick. I help individuals in transition clarify, organize, and unlock their hidden treasures through personalized and group purpose development, vision coaching, and life mapping focusing on Total Man Transformation: Spirit, Soul, Body, and Mind.


Apostle Shelby Frederick, you are the Founder/Owner of Healing Oasis/Jewel of Wellness and a Licensed Massage Therapist. Please tell us about your company and the services you offer clients.

In 2007, I embarked on a transformative journey by founding Healing Oasis Total Body Therapy, fueled by my passion for healing and my newly acquired license in massage therapy. This endeavor was more than a business; it was a calling to offer a sanctuary for those seeking relief and rejuvenation through the art of massage. My journey didn't stop there, however. In 2017, driven by a desire to broaden the spectrum of my impact and inspired by the success of Healing Oasis, I launched Jewels of Wellness. This new venture was a natural evolution of my mission, extending beyond the physical touch to encompass coaching, counseling, teaching, and a diverse range of wellness products.


Healing Oasis and Jewels of Wellness are more than two separate entities representing a cohesive, holistic experience. Through Healing Oasis, I've provided therapeutic relief and a haven of tranquility for my clients. Meanwhile, Jewels of Wellness allowed me to further enrich lives by offering tools, knowledge, and support for a well-rounded approach to health and well-being. Together, they embody my holistic vision, seamlessly blending physical therapies with emotional and spiritual wellness to nurture the whole person.

Apostle Shelby Frederick, you are a Certified Instructor at the International Institute of Faith-Based Counseling and the Vice-President of Northeastern College of Theology. Tell the readers about your ministry work.

In 2016, I took a significant step in my professional and spiritual journey by becoming a Certified Faith-Based Clinical Counselor, a milestone achieved through the educational programs offered by my parents' Bible college. My commitment to this path didn't just stop with certification; in 2019, I embraced the role of an Instructor, dedicating myself to educating and training individuals worldwide in faith-based counseling.


The year 2022 marked a poignant transition in my career and personal life as I stepped into the role of Vice-President of Northeastern College of Theology, succeeding my father and working alongside my mother, Dr. Vivian Morgan, President. Under my leadership, the college has achieved a significant milestone by earning full accreditation from the Accrediting Commission International, reinforcing our commitment to providing high-quality theological education.


 As I continue guiding the college into its next chapter, I am also deepening my theological understanding and expertise by pursuing a Doctorate degree in theology. This pursuit not only signifies my dedication to personal growth and excellence in the field of biblical studies and theology but also underscores my commitment to enhancing the educational standards and spiritual guidance provided by Northeastern College of Theology. Our mission remains steadfast—to offer comprehensive, accredited theological education and training that empowers individuals globally.

You are a Visionary Leader with a “unique communication style bridging the generational gaps to convey kingdom principles for successful living.” How do kingdom principles create a successful living?

Thank you for recognizing the core of my work and for such a thoughtful question. The belief that kingdom principles are foundational to achieving a successful and fulfilling life is at the heart of my philosophy, as reflected through my teachings and the essence of Jewels of Wellness. These principles, drawn from timeless wisdom, are not just spiritual guidelines but practical tools that, when applied, can transform our lives and communities.


Kingdom principles such as love, integrity, stewardship, and service are universal truths that transcend cultural, generational, and societal divides. They encourage us to live with purpose, align our actions with our values, and contribute positively to the world around us. By embracing these principles, we learn to lead lives that are both successful in material terms and rich in meaning and contribution.


For instance, the principle of stewardship teaches us to manage our resources wisely, be it time, talents, or treasures. This can lead to financial stability, personal growth, and the ability to bless others. The principle of service shifts our focus from self-centered ambitions to the well-being of our community, fostering environments where everyone can thrive. Love and integrity guide us to build strong, trusting relationships that are essential for personal and professional success.


In bridging generational gaps, these principles serve as a common language that can unite us, regardless of age or background. They offer a blueprint for surviving and thriving in every area of our lives. Through my work and the platform of Jewels of Wellness, I aim to communicate these timeless truths in ways that resonate across generations, encouraging everyone to build a legacy of success, impact, and fulfillment grounded in kingdom principles.

I found “God-Versations Prayer Journal” to be an interesting title. Tell the readers about your prayer journal and the reason you wrote it.

 The conception of GODversations™ Prayer Journal stemmed from a creative twist on words during its design phase. As someone who passionately journals, I created a prayer journal that mirrored my unique approach to prayer and reflected the dynamic call-and-response nature of my conversations with God. Embracing the concept that seven cultures of influence shape every society, my aim was to craft a prayer journal that could serve as a structured space for organizing prayers across these diverse areas. This vision was the driving force behind its creation, intending to offer a personalized prayer experience that resonates with the intricate ways individuals connect with their faith and the world around them.


Where can the readers purchase copies of your prayer journal?

Shaping the Future of Women's Leadership: My Journey of Purposeful Growth

As we commemorate Women's History Month, I am deeply honored to be featured in the “Women’s History Month” Spotlight for Growth Women's Business Networks Magazine. My name is Shelby Frederick, and my mission has been to empower, inspire, and transform through holistic development and purpose-driven leadership. This journey reflects my story and the collective strength and potential of women navigating the complexities of today’s professional and personal landscapes.


My Approach to Holistic Empowerment

I've strived to offer hope and empowerment in a realm where unique challenges confront women at every turn. My engagement in mental health coaching, Purpose A.L.I.V.E. Coaching Clinics, and Holistic Leadership Development is designed to equip women with the courage, skills, and wisdom to forge their paths with confidence. Embracing the entirety of one’s being—mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and professionally—is at the heart of my philosophy, empowering women to realize their fullest potential.


Leading with Purpose

True leadership emanates from self-awareness and authenticity, guiding principles in my endeavor to nurture holistic leaders among women. The Four Pillars of Holistic Leadership—Identity, Position, Purpose, and Significance—have been my blueprint for encouraging women to lead with integrity, passion, and insight. This framework supports women in discovering their authentic selves, understanding their unique positions, embracing their purposes, and acknowledging their significant impact on their surroundings.


The Transformative Impact

The stories of women who’ve journeyed with me testify to the transformative power of embracing one’s potential and tackling challenges head-on. I have always aimed to build a community of strong, empowered female leaders ready to leave their mark. Prioritizing mental health and well-being ensures that these leaders are equipped for success and resilient in the face of adversity.


A Call to Action

This Women’s History Month inspires us to reflect on our strides and the paths yet to tread. My dedication to fostering holistic growth and leadership among women is a tribute to the pioneers who paved the way and a commitment to those who will follow. It’s a call to action for us all to support each other in our quests for growth, purpose, and fulfillment.


To my fellow Growth Women's Business Networks Magazine readers, let's seize this moment to commit to our personal and collective transformation. Let’s uplift each other as we journey toward empowerment and GOD success. Together, we have the power to craft a legacy of strength and achievement for women everywhere.


In embracing my mission, I’ve learned that empowerment begins with recognizing one’s worth and potential. It’s about courageously authoring your narrative with resilience and purpose. As we forge ahead, let’s write those narratives together, contributing our unique chapters to the annals of women’s history.

Being spotlighted this Women’s History Month is a personal honor and a clarion call to continue our collective journey of empowerment and leadership. Let's celebrate our progress and press on towards breaking new ground together.
