Soul Care to

Save Your Life

How Radical Honesty Leads to Real Healing

I tell the story of hitting rock bottom and how God put people in my path to help me heal and experience true transformation.

Each chapter contains a soul care practice that has become an ongoing part of my everyday life, and an invitation for it to be part of yours too.

This book is a breath of fresh air for anyone and everyone who is suffocating beneath the weight of private struggles with sin. Manda’s transparency and willingness to deal with what we prefer to keep hidden is a gift. Freedom lives within these pages. 
Nona Jones, Business Executive, International Speaker and Bestselling author, “Success from the Inside Out”


An invitation to create sustainable rhythms of work, play, and rest

Space, my 30-day devotional, will help you learn how to create sustainable rhythms of work, play and rest while reminding you that God loves you for who you are, not for what you can do.

“This is more than a helpful or inspiring resource. It is an invitation that takes you by the hand and dares you to reset. Manda walks with you and leads you closer to Jesus every step of the way. Every woman feeling that she is overwhelmed, exhausted, or lacking space needs this!”
Jordan Lee Dooley, Bestselling Author of Own Your Everyday
