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. Creating SoulfulLiving.com is my soulful life purpose, and it has been one of the most meaningful, joyous, and wondrous experiences of my lifetime. 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.
Please make yourself at home while you explore our website’s many pages and resources. Sit back, pour a cup of tea, and be inspired… 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! And, you will find many inspiring and soulful gifts, products, and tools at our online gift store, Body of Grace.
My brand new program, the Divine Spark Sessions offers you the opportunity to work one-on-one with me for a deep-dive journey into your heart and soul to discover your highest calling and life purpose – your beautiful, unique expression in the world – your *Divine Spark* – the reason you were born!
And, you can look forward to much more exciting growth at SoulfulLiving.com this year… Soon, we will be introducing an exciting new Transformational Multi-Instructor eCourse Program and posting an abundance of wonderful new content and wisdom from many more of your favorite authors. I’m so happy you’re here. Enjoy!
With love and gratitude.
