Soulistic Leadership

A resource for Lifestyle, Ministry and Soul Transformation

The Soulistic Leadership Journeys are training experiences for leaders who desire to understand the soul and its care. They are also for those who desire to lead from a place of physical, mental, emotional, and relational health. This holistic care of our souls enables us to lead others well and avoid pitfalls and burnout that often comes with leadership. Groups and individuals benefit from this resource, which serves as a self-guided journey of soul care.



“All that remained were shattered plates and a dying soul. I was flat on my back in my soul and succumbing to full-blown physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion.”
— Sharon Houk, Author

This was the turning point for Sharon who invites us on a poignant personal journey of holistic soul care. Masterfully weaving together her story with six dynamic biblical principles. 

Soulistic Leadership delves deep into the personal side of ministerial leadership, uncovering where pitfalls and uneven balance can cause the downfall of a leader’s physical, mental, emotional, and relational health.

Soulistic Leadership is designed to guide you to the deepest Spiritual transformation of your life as you:

  • Recognize and respond to symptoms of your soul: burnout, loneliness, stress, exhaustion
  • Determine where your past is still infecting your present: co-dependency, addictions, communication breakdown
  • Identify your best life rhythms and reignite your passion for life
  • Learn how to rest and refuel your soul

Personal. Practical. Integrative. Foundational. This is not another spinning plate; it will help you know why you spin plates anyway and which plates you need to drop.

It was like turning on a light in a dark room. I can't believe no one has ever taught me about prayer walking. My prayer life will never be the same.
