Hi! I’m Jené. Welcome to my “Church of Wild!”

Those words, “church” and “wild”, have multilayered, rich, and complex meanings in my life.

It was only in the last few years that I am at peace with what I experienced in the world of Church and ready to explore the whole world of Wild. This is where all of that will be happening. Here’s how (links below and in the site menu):

Podcasts in 2023

Evelyn Steel and I have been working on a new podcast for you called Womance, in which we explore the sisterhood, friendships between women. And we’re both doing our own podcasts, too! Mine, which will launch in February, will initially first focus on my memoir and how things have changed since I did the project and wrote the book.

The Writing

I’m finally actually putting words to page on my science fiction novel, will soon be publishing on LinkedIn and my Substack home HERE, called This Little Light of Mine. Stay tuned!

The YoniFlower Collection Store

I got my first camera in middle school, and since that moment, I’ve captured the wonders of light and shadow, action and pattern, all of Life through a lens. I also used to draw clothes and shoe designs on the back of the church bulletin while my dad preached (and I only half listened). Now, through the store I built over our COVID year after my job closed, I’m designing apparel with my photographs as the raw material. I hope to make clothes that make people feel rebellious and wonderful and happy. Check it out here to feel those confident smiles, from the simple act of wearing a pair of leggings.

And More…

Over the last couple of years, I’ve discovered a cadre of SisterFriends. We have been helping and supporting each other, collaborating, and planning. There’s even more amazing Stuff on the horizon, in the works, coming soon soon soon! Let’s walk (and dance) this journey of Life together.

p.s. Here’s the book that started it all, the project of doing Wild things that cracked open my life in 2007: The Oat Project: How I Faced My Fear and Came of Age in One Wild Summer. I’m reworking the cover for a new marketing push, so if you want this original cover, jump on it. 😉
