Take Care... nurture your soul

Pause to connect with God and others

We’re all different.
Maybe it’s possible we all connect
with God differently, too.

Taking care of your soul with pauses throughout the day.

Sharing your soul in the loving presence of a companion.

Experiencing and enjoying a shared community.

A note from LuAnn

“Take care.” A quick phrase I often use to wish someone well as we part ways. For me, in the past few years I’ve noticed an increasing desire to pause…to take care, to create restful space for a few minutes to catch my breath and simply be with God. Without hurry. Noticing the state of my soul, noticing the presence of God-in quiet, in nature, lingering in Scripture or music. In the safe presence of a trusted listening companion, and alongside other honest and hungry Jesus-followers. Those varied spaces and relationships help me take care of my soul, and deepen in relationship with God.

A Simple Pause was created to invite you into three ways to care for your soul:

  • For time alone with God through short spiritual practices, I hope you’ll download the app, A Simple Pause.
  • Spiritual Direction is a time to explore God’s presence and action in your life with a safe, confidential listener. I would be glad to accompany you on your journey.
  • Consider joining others for life-giving soul care events that we host or partner with the Spiritual Formation Society of Arizona.

I hope you will find ways to attend to God and find rest and refreshment for your soul.
Based in scripture, attentive to the Spirit, and alongside to accompany: A Simple Pause.
