Judah Smith, New York Times best-selling author of Jesus Is ______, explores what it looks like to cultivate a healthy soul in the midst of a busy life and points listeners to the soul's only true home and place of rest and fulfillment: God.
"How's your soul?" Instead of a perfunctory "how are you?", Judah Smith asks people this surprising question, because he knows that the health of the soul - the deepest part of ourselves - is overlooked in the busyness of everyday life. But the truth is, all the things people most desire in life - stability, peace, hope, love - are rooted in the health of their souls, and they need an intentional daily journey to manage it well.
In How's Your Soul?, Judah explores the various facets and needs of the inner person, showing listeners how to cultivate healthy souls and leading them to the discovery that ultimately their souls are fully home - in a state of internal wellness, fulfillment, and completeness - only when they look to God, trust God, and rest in God.

I love Judah's thoughtfulness and transparency. I got so much out of this book, but the part I will remember is surrendering to God and surrounding yourself with the right people. I also love what he says at the end. I've heard it so many times and it continually blows my mind and grounds me. As Christians we are going to live for an eternity, we may as live like it and make decisions based off that fact!
This book gets to the heart of so many issues which is the soul. It provides so many practical examples to go along with biblical application and biblical truths of things we deal with daily. Often times we think one way about our soul but the Bible says otherwise. This book does a fantastic job of relaying what the Bible and Jesus have to say about our souls.
As a bi-vocational pastor this topic hits home. So many books about spiritual, churchy, growing church, life groups and Pastor Judah hits it out the park with "How is Your Soul". I wish it had double the chapters because I could not get enough. Several parts of the book I am going to listen again. Jesus our anchor and the anchor does its best work when it's not seen. WORD!!!! - Judah is real and authentic and you can hear in his stories that he also experiences the same struggles we all face with our soul. You need this book if you are a human being.
We all know the importance of having a healthy body and mind, but sometimes we lose focus on what's most important. Judah does an incredible job articulating the struggle we all face to have a healthy soul.
No matter what season of life you find yourself in or what your spiritual beliefs are, this book will help you navigate the journey of life as you take inventory of the "inside you".
Already shared with my friend who is a Youth Pastor! I know this book will bless his soul!
Elijah. Dude's a beast for going out in the ocean on that little tiny row boat!
The scene of Peter, being like you and me, when he was walking on water with Jesus. How easy it is to lose sight of Him in the wind and the waves. Real life!
"It's good for me!"- says, my soul.
Glad I went with the audio version so I didn't miss Pastor Judah's narration of the rollercoaster and bloopers at the end! Appreciate this book.
