For this milestone episode, Kelly’s cousin Nicole (who lives in Hawaii) offered to turn the tables and interview her. We talked about midlife and feeling stuck, overcoming a negative mindset, what inspired Soul Care, purpose, curiosity, and so many other things.
As a newbie podcaster, 25 episodes is a success (only 50% of all new podcasts create more than 10 episodes) and this is a great way to celebrate with you! I’d say I was nervous, but that would be lying. I had a blast and I couldn’t wait to do it.
Meet Kelly Skinner
Kelly Skinner is the founder of Soul Care, an inclusive day retreat center dedicated to providing resources to nurture the soul, space for stillness, and a community to support spiritual growth for people of all faiths and no particular faith. She is passionate about working with others to cultivate love, co-creating a more just and whole world, and accompanying one another into creating deeper communion with God and with one another.
Kelly is currently studying spiritual direction as a practice for social transformation with the Center for Prophetic Imagination in Minnesota. She’s a founding member of the Beloved CU Inclusive Catholic Community and a monthly speaker at Unity Church & Spiritual Center. In her free time, she’s an avid reader and podcast listener. An ideal day would involve hanging out with her husband Shawn or one of her five young adult children and enjoying a charcuterie tray with a good glass of red wine.

- The Great Spiritual Migration by Brian McLaren
