Soul Homework

Here is a blog post I created about how to get started with your own soul homework step by step, and you can find me on Goodreads here, so we can keep track of each other’s journey. 

Because I love music, I made playlists to accompany my morning practice. They are available here:

Morning Soul Homework Playlist on Spotify

Have fun! 

These are the books I’ve read, in the order listed. I’ll be adding more books as I finish them. 

The books with an asterisk are ones I could read again and again and would highly recommend.
