Welcome!

 

Glad you stopped by. Perhaps you seek care for your leadership-weary soul. Or perhaps you seek language, resources, and guidance when inviting others into the spiritual formation journey.

Either way, you're not alone and we're glad you're here. We've been there. Living and leading from a healthy soul is an ever-more important topic in daily life and in the strategic focus of ministries around the world. May you find encouragement, a sense of community, and a few practical helps here.

Soul Care is all about living from a place of overflow; learning to stop occasionally for conversation, the chance to read, to rest, to open up to God's presence, guidance, and--ultimately--love. Soul Care is all about bravely living into the destiny that God has for you. In His power, under His direction, and in His way.

 

No one sets out to diminish the health of their own soul…
but let’s face it — it happens!

Sometimes, the demands of everyday life keep us from tending to the inner life. Sometimes, we severely under-value the importance of our interior world. But the rock solid truth is this: our soul's health drives everything that matters to us. It is foundational to who you are. In the end, everything about your life, your person-hood, is in some way a function of your soul. The health of your soul matters!

Something else is true about souls: They are living. Like all living things, our souls can thrive, or not so much. Every soul has a quality of life; a degree of well-being. Souls need attention and care. But how?

The dream for Soul Care is simple and two-fold: That each person would realize his or her innate need for this kind of care, and discover simple and profound ways to do it. If we each would take the time to care for our souls, the entire world really would be transformed... one life at a time.

 
 

Architecturally speaking, pillars are strong and reliable. They stand the test of time. Properly placed, they create space and buttress a structure.

Similarly, over time we have recognized the important, space-making role that core spiritual practices play in helping us both live and lead from the strong structure of a healthy soul, with plenty of space for God. These specific practices are foundational to what Soul Care offers.

 

Soul Care helps you live from a healthy soul and wisely
lead others towards authentic transformation.

In 1998, Mindy Caliguire launched Soul Care to be a publishing and ministry vision dedicated to helping people restore health to their souls. The growing hunger for authentic Christian spirituality continues, along with a need for practical help in experiencing God. As a result, the vision of Soul Care continued to emerge. Consulting and speaking with groups such as the Willow Creek Association, Renovaré, and the Salvation Army has broadened the Soul Care platform to ministries and churches globally.

So what makes a soul healthy? Quite simply, a soul is healthy to the extent that it experiences a strong connection and receptivity to God. Jesus invites us to a life of deep connection: "If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing" (John 15:5, TNIV). However, connecting this spiritual reality to how we actually live is another matter.

Over the years, Soul Care developed more ways to help you deepen your own spiritual reality, and inspire the same in others. We provide resources, gatherings, and consulting with an aim to:

  • Foster an authentic life with God
  • Help organizations lead towards growth of those they serve
  • Mentor leaders to focusing on re-establishing their spiritual vitality as the primary step towards a lifestyle of sustainable ministry and leadership

Our prayer is that you will find practical wisdom and even some companionship on the journey in this way of life—restoring life and health to your soul, releasing your God-given potential and destiny. Explore practical ways to restore life and vitality to your soul, the "soul" of your team, and the vision of your organization.
