This is seriously one of the best books I have ever read. It touched my heart and soul. It is perfect for anyone and everyone that feels holes in their lives. Emptiness. Judah Smith is such a current, modern pastor and author. You will be blessed by this book!

Judah Smith is one of the few pastors whose books I will keep coming back to, and I think this one is my favorite of his. His voice is full of humor and fun, yet he still hits all the deep points. I loved the subject of this book, and what he touched upon. I feel this idea--of your soul, and truly allowing it to rest--is not one talked about as much as it should be in the Church, and I love how he chose to tackle it. Pastor Judah's books are never theologically heavy; he writes in a way both new and old believers will understand. But that doesn't mean he ever loses the meaning or depth of what he is saying either. I have a feeling this is one I will keep coming back to.

This book does the job of asking you the question in the deeper sense. How’s Your Soul? genuinely asks how is your soul. We often do a good job of taking care of ourselves on the surface. We make sure we’re happy in some way. That we have the comfort we need. But this book challenges us to look down into our souls and find the underlying issues we have. Judah Smith’s beginning analogies of being home is a perfect explanation of why our souls need to be taken care of. The purpose of the book is not just to give your soul a break, but to look deep down and fix your problems so your can truly experience peace. I absolutely love the tone the book took and it’s much deeper than you’d expect. If you’re at a crossroads in life, especially where you really can’t pin down why, this book is perfect.

HOW’S YOUR SOUL? Why Everything That Matters Starts With The Inside You By Judah Smith When you meet someone, you usually say or they say to you, “How are you/” or “How are you doing?”, these are standard greeting used every day. What if you asked or was asked “How‘s your soul?”, how would you or others react? Our soul is the most important part of us and the condition of the soul is what we need to be concerned about. In this book, Judah Smith describes the soul, the importance of the soul and what we need to do to improve our soul. The following quote is from the back cover of the book: “A quiet soul is far more valuable than fame and fortune. A level soul, a balanced soul, a genuine soul---that is a gift from God.” The soul is our connection with God and needs to be kept in a healthy relationship with God. Judah uses humor and offer examples from life that will help you to have a healthy soul. He offers scripture and an easy way to understand what is needed to improve your soul. I found the book easy to read and interesting and believe it could be used in Bible study, group discussions and enjoyable to all. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggersbook review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

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.

Reading How's Your Soul by Judah Smith helped me: 1. Evaluate how I'm really doing 2. Pointed me back to being filled up by Christ alone. 3. Ask others "How's your soul?" instead of just saying "How are you doing?" How's Your Soul is a quick and enjoyable read about the value of finding rest and enjoyment for your soul--in Christ. Judah's wit, relatability, passion for God and his transparency made reading this book and applying these principles to my life seem more attainable with God's help. As a pastor, I've often found myself more concerned for the state of the souls of the people in our congregation and in my best efforts to help them find rest for their souls--- I've often neglected my own. This book is a fresh reminder that the health of our soul and finding that enjoyment and rest in God will help us worship God with our entire life and soul, which will lead to an overflow of Christ's love and grace in our relationships. I highly recommend this book for everyone but especially for pastors.

You may have asked yourself: "Where do I go when life overwhelms me? Where do I go when all I want is an escape?" You're not alone. Here, you will discover how to have a quiet soul despite all the noise and distractions around you. Do yourself a favor by getting a copy of this book. Feel free to share it with many others, too. I didn't expect that a book (with a cover like this one) about the condition of our souls would make me chuckle for countless times. This book may contain God-glorifying wisdom but smack dab in the same book are funny stuff that you can't resist. Ps. Judah Smith is just hilarious! Speaking of comical stuff, the part of the story that involves Pastor Jude is my favorite! Nyahaha... Future readers, watch out! I highly recommend you don't read it in a library. You'll surely be sent out. I love the author's transparency. He's just so honest and generous to share even his mishaps, which most normal people won't have the audacity to bring into the open. I'm so delighted to have known some personal facts about Ps. Judah Smith. Know of an author who doesn't read much? Ps. Judah Smith, it is! And this makes me wonder why he writes oh so well. God works in mysterious ways really. The author has his admirable way of making things comprehensible. This book doesn't only have the power to touch hearts but is also founded on the Word of God, so you can never go wrong by picking up this one. This amazing book also reveals a few misconceptions we have but sometimes are not aware of; it corrects them by pointing us to Jesus Himself. This book also made me fall in love with Jesus all over again, which makes it perfect for those who have lost their "first love." This will help you get it back. You're welcome! This book reminded me of the wonderful things God has done for me. I have lost count of how many highlights I have made on the book. I would love to share everything if that were possible, but let me quote a few: "Our souls are home when they return to God." "Your feelings come and go, but God remains the same, and you will praise him again. It’s only a matter of time." "There was a time not too long before when you thought you’d never make it, that the storms and waves were going to win. But you held on, and God got you through." "I want more of Jesus so that I can love the way he loves." "Quietness and rest are found not in control but in surrender." "A quiet soul is far more valuable than fame and fortune. A level soul, a balanced soul, a genuine soul— that is a gift from God." "Whatever you do, don’t give up. You have a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, and he will see you safely to the other side."
