The Phoenix Soul deeply feeds my soul. I savor every issue. I’m a hospital chaplain at a large county hospital working weekends; burnout, job stress, and ongoing health issues have created quite a year for me. The Phoenix Soul reaches my spiritual, emotional, and physical pain in ways that are life-affirming and encouraging. I go back to each issue over and over.
— Leslie Irwin

Kindred, did you know us as Sprout online magazine?
We bloomed under this identity
from November 2011 through December 2014.

In January 2015, we embraced our joyful rebirth as
The Phoenix Soul: same magazine at her heart,
now with fresh focus on our vulnerable truths.
Our grit and grace. Our daily renewal and transformation.
