I love the unique gifts offered in spiritual direction: a safe, hospitable, and honest space where you pay attention to what God is doing in your life, and learn to listen to and participate in that work. My hope is that, through spiritual direction, you will experience the love of God more deeply and become more fully and simply yourself. I am a wife of 31 years and mother of three grown children. Spiritual direction has been key in growing my life with God. I would love to walk with you wherever you find yourself on your spiritual journey.

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.
