According to Dan Allender, “To enter another person’s heartache and hope, at the level that brings profound change, one needs to have walked where few choose to tread—the valley of the shadow of death. A good guide is not only exceptionally bright, strong, and wise—she is aware of her brokenness and humbled by her beauty. She holds the complexity of death and resurrection for herself and therefore can do so for others.


SOW that was formed from the deep desire to take trauma, brokenness and grief into a place of redemption, hope and connection. Laurie Proctor and Jean Masukevich know what it means to be well with their soul because they have taken the deepest parts of themselves and held them up to the light so that others can do the same. They are gentle guides attuned to the Spirit and others to bring a place of safety, vulnerability and freedom.
