"What a beautiful time to be refreshed and refocus. I learned clear steps to take, while new depths of my soul were tugged towards God's gentle care. This was a much needed time to pause and listen."

"Most helpful, other than the presentation itself, was the time for reflection after each practice was presented. I appreciated the questions on which to reflect and the encouragement from Steve and David to listen for the gentle voice of the Lord. It was not an exercise meant to bring on self-condemnation and shame. I came away from the workshop hearing the Lord drawing me into further refection with Him. "

Very organized layout and I feel like you did a good job going deep with a small amount of time. I left with good tools and ideas for different areas of soul care and definitely want to do more of your online courses! I also really appreciate how Biblically-centered you are. I have found that many others who teach this subject seem to consider the role of Scripture as less important, but you all make it central. Thank you!

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.

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.
