The heart of Spiritual Direction is intimacy with God. He speaks in deeply personal ways, but distinguishing His Voice amidst the cacophony of others is challenging. Spiritual Direction creates sacred space to grow in familiarity with that Voice, its tones of delight and compassion which are ours through the abiding work of Jesus Christ. I’ve had the privilege of companioning others through various ministry vehicles over the last 15 years (Young Life, the church, etc.), and my one constant has been a posture of contemplative listening. Having a front row seat to someone’s growing intimacy with Jesus never gets old!

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.
