A Weekly Devotional to Nourish the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Soulfull is a gentle nudge to reorient our intentions and seek more from our one precious life. This collection of spiritual reflections, recipes, activities, and prayers acts as an encyclopedia of hope and spiritual direction.

Are we truly living the life we want to live? Sometimes, but not nearly enough. Our souls crave authentic experiences, but seeking them is a challenge in our over-committed world, where we often focus more on “making it through” than “making it sacred.” We need regular soul wake-up calls and holy daily rhythms to live a life that feels good from the inside out, shines with meaning, and radiates joy.

In this refreshingly original invitation to soulful living, Farrell Mason speaks to the universal human experience—navigating relationships, coping with change, rebounding from setbacks or loss, finding peace, and prioritizing food, fellowship, faith, and regular joy. Her devotional offers balanced and creative ways to bring a bit of heaven down to our patches of earth.

I love the delightful writing style and layout of the book. Farrell Mason’s personality shines through, and I can tell we’d be able to hang out. Like the author, cooking brings me immense joy. The anecdotes and illustrations are wonderful, and the prayers at the end of each devotion are a delicate touch.

However, the weekly devotional concept didn’t work for me; it was too easy to forget about it. Daily devotionals fit better into my routine. Despite this, I love her practical steps for getting through difficult times, the fun recipes, and the great anecdotes from her life and others.

Filled with excellent quotes and Scripture, there are too many references to Buddhist and New Age thought for my taste. The frequent mentions of “The Universe…” didn’t resonate with me.

Overall, Soulfull is a beautifully written and inspiring guide to living that invites you to slow down, reflect, and bring more meaning and joy into your daily life. 4 stars.
