About this ebook

Judah Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Jesus Is ____, helps readers understand what steals their peace of mind and outlines the path to peace and fulfillment: understanding and implementing the healthy soul environment God originally designed.

Modern everyday life is stressful and confusing, full of overly packed schedules and circumstances outside one’s control. This can be especially troubling for Christians who are wrestling with reality while trying to put their trust in God. But the truth is, anxiety does not have to be the constant from day to day. In fact, all the things people most desire in life--peace of mind, hope for tomorrow--are rooted in one simple thing: how they care for the health of their souls. In How's Your Soul?, Judah Smith explores the various facets and needs of the inner person, demonstrating that the path to cultivating healthy souls starts with discovering God’s original design. He helps readers

  • find real peace and security by bringing their feelings into alignment with God’s truth,
  • discover a healthy sense of identity from God and feel empowered to face the future with a new security and confidence, and
  • learn the four elements necessary for a healthy soul environment.

Sharing his own often humorous mistakes and foibles, Judah offers a helping hand as readers find their way through the emotional rollercoasters of life to discover the soul-healing essentials rooted in what he calls the soul’s only true home--God himself.

No but, how are you really? How’s Your Soul? Judah Smith’s book asks the deep question of ‘how is your soul?’. We aim to succeed in worldly things like owning a house, having okay kids, money, healthy bodies, healthy minds, which are all great but how often do we check on our insides? How do we measure how healthy our souls are? Judah’s book helps us to fixate on the health of our insides, because all that prospers on the outside can only prosper as much as our souls can. We can have everything our heart desires and be the most loved person on the planet, but if our souls are not healthy we still feel empty. We are merely living for our flesh. This book gets you thinking beyond how you feel about things happening on the surface and helps you to return home with God, and to live life to the fullest with a healthy soul. Living in God is the only way we can live fully as He has intended us to live. He wants us to enjoy life, enjoy family, enjoy your hobbies, to enjoy things around you! Judah’s book asks pondering questions that guide the reader into starting a healthy soul focused lifestyle. We don’t often focus on our soul as much as we do our bodies and finances. When the core of our soul prospers, the rest of our life will follow. Start enjoying life to the fullest! How is your soul? Really though. -Easy read, if you don’t read much, like me (guilty) its GOOD -Hilarious, his book is lighthearted but filled with pondering questions -Backed up with scripture Personally: I’m starting to see life in a new way. I start with focusing on my soul, and then everything else falls into place. I’m motivated to be healthier, I’m motivated to do other things that align with God’s desires for me. I start to enjoy things around me instead of feeling guilty about enjoying life that God has offered me. I can hear God more clearly, worry less about things out of my control and fully worship God for who he is in my everyday life.

I wasn't a huge fan of Judah Smith's preachings, but this book is something every pastor, follower, and non believer needs to read, in a simple way he captivates you with his stories, and dives deep into a practical sense of the needs that our soul has, and how we can find the source that will satisfy our soul's desire, As a young Pastor and someone who grew up in church, this book was something i needed to read, im challenged, and to a certain point was lead to question my own walk with christ...thank you Pastor Judah, keep writing and preaching
