Strengthening Our Souls - a Soul Care Course
Learn To Live Freely & Lightly
We have seen the results of burned-out leaders living uncentered, dis-integrated lives. We have seen what happens when people strive and work and keep going without any regard for their soul. It doesn't have to be that way...
The SOS Journey will guide you out of burnout (or help you avoid it in the first place!), and take you on journey toward the value and practice of caring for your soul.

SOS is housed inside our digital community on Mighty Networks called the "Soul Care Collective". The Collective has courses, community events, personal and leadership resources, and more. This professional platform helps you track your progress, connect you to others, and is available on desktop or mobile app.
Spiritual Direction is a key part of the SOS Journey! These 1 on 1 personal sessions offer a safe, non-anxious space, to discover together where God is at work in your life. As SOS begins, you will be able to choose who you’d like to meet with and schedule your calls directly. If you need help choosing, our team can assist you.
We designed SOS to work flexibly within almost any schedule. As little as an hour per week would still be a great start to learn these practices and make space to meet with God! Whether you’re in business, non-profit work, healthcare, education, or other organizational leadership... we desire to serve you, especially when you don’t have time for soul care. That’s why we created this journey!
“I was surprised at how engaging the videos were. The environment was BEAUTIFUL and that in itself helped me to feel like I was escaping my current surroundings.”
“It changed the way I show up in the world for myself and others.”
“Taking time for rest - I learned the importance of taking even just a short time each day for myself.”
“I would encourage others to take part in this experience. I would describe it as engaging and
easy to accomplish on a weekly basis.”
“The spiritual practices were so great! I am so excited to have learned some practices that I can continue to apply. My spiritual Director was so encouraging and wise. She asked such great questions!”
“I was surprised how helpful the spiritual direction sessions were.”
“This soul care experience is so simple, yet transformative. It is refreshing! Thank you so much for helping us take care of our own souls. God bless you!”
“I felt this was a valuable experience and I truly appreciated the spiritual director sessions.”
“This was so helpful and freeing. It was time well invested. I am so glad that I took the time for this journey!”
Yes, SOS was originally designed to be done within community, to go on a journey together. Set a start time, and plan to meet together weekly either in person or over zoom to share and learn from each other. There are group chat functions within the course where you are able to share and discuss, as well. Or if you're interested in taking a cohort through the course check out the SOS Journey for teams.
Access to SOS is indefinite. Some will take a longer than others to go through each session, or others simply want to start at a later date. That is ok!

“I really, really, really liked all of the little talks that Mindy did, the teachings. I found them encouraging and... liked how she talked about the hard things. I just appreciated acknowledging that things can be hard. And that it's okay and it’s good to take time with those things.”
“My Director was just so magical in the way that he got me to say a lot. There were times when it almost felt surgical, but it was also so fun, and painful at the same time...most of the time when I am talking to folks, it's me ministering to them, not the other way around. So, it was interesting to be on the receiving end, especially of something that was so uniquely personal and customized for me.”
“It's a qualitative difference I feel since doing SOS. I feel more grounded. I feel more stable. I feel more sure of who I am. One of my temptations is to go around grasping for affirmation and attention and value. And I find myself doing that less. And I'm seeking it in the right place. And that feels like freedom. It feels refreshing. In Isaiah 58 It says, ‘You will be a well watered garden.’ I feel like a well watered garden...(I) actually have the source of water, and SOS helps (me) know how to tap into it.”
"I just want to say to my spiritual director, ‘Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.’ It was like meeting a new old friend. She was just exactly what I needed...And it's too bad that more people don't experience spiritual direction. Some people don't even know what it is...after my experience, I think it's incredibly important."
