I live life with a sense of wonder at the ways God reveals himself, and I love to help others recognize and respond to his invitation into ever-growing intimacy with him. I live on the quieter side of life, often with paintbrush or pen in hand, as I draw into God’s presence alone or with others. It delights me to meet with people and listen as they ponder their lives and faith.I’m a retired dog trainer with three children and ten grandchildren and I can often be found hiking with my husband and dogs or reading while sipping tea.

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
