Live a fuller life, joyfully, with love.
Welcome to Soulful Living! I’m so pleased that your journey has brought you here! My name is Valerie Rickel, and I’m the founder, creator and soul of SoulfulLiving.com, an inspirational website devoted to personal growth, spiritual development, self help, and self improvement.
In September 1999, I was grieving the loss of my father and had been searching the internet for comfort and healing, but there were very few resources available online at the time. I felt a deep knowing in my heart that I was being “called” to create a website that would offer healing and inspiration to people around the globe. So, I set about pouring my love and grief into this purposeful life project, and at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2000, I launched SoulfulLiving.com in memory of my father and in honor of our new millennium. I can’t say for sure if my life purpose found me, or if I found my life purpose, but I know, without a doubt, that sharing my passion and love for living a soulful life is why I was put here on this earth. I am very excited to be relaunching a completely reimagined and redesigned incarnation of SoulfulLiving.com today!
It has been my dream to redevelop the website for quite some time (as she was long overdue for a modern “tech” makeover), and it brings me great pleasure to finally see my dream come to life! Thank you so much for being here with me as we celebrate her rebirth and usher in a new era of SoulfulLiving.com! I greatly look forward to hearing your input and feedback.
Please make yourself at home while you explore our new pages. Come back often, sit back, pour a cup of tea, and tell your friends! There’s much to see and experience! You’ll find a wonderful collection of archived articles from hundreds of authors who have contributed their wisdom to SoulfulLiving.com over the past 15 years. Our “Soul Retreat” Newsletter and Gift Pack are sure to inspire your heart, and our new Inspiration Gallery will nourish your soul. We’ve relaunched our online store, The Mandala Collection, and our brand new Social Networking Community offers the opportunity to meet and connect with the many like-minded members of our soulful tribe!
We’re looking forward to our continued growth as the year goes on… Soon, we will be introducing an exciting new Transformational eCourse Program and posting an abundance of wonderful new content and wisdom from many more of your favorite authors. Enjoy!
With love and gratitude.
