Welcome! I am so glad you are here. I am Amy and I am absolutely passionate about the whole life development of individuals body, spirit and soul (mind, will, emotions). My purpose on this planet is to first to be Mom to one extraordinary daughter! Next my planet purpose is to empower individuals to make life altering choices that point them towards Christ to break the chains that bind their abilities and beliefs. Every Christian can live free and not fractured! Wow. What a force the faith community could be if we would first get free from our own afflictions!
Addictive behaviors and abuse tormented me on and off again for over 15 years until I took a stand against it and finally Souled Out! I was not only set free from these afflictions but have been conquering physical paralysis for the past 11 years and I am walking to tell about it. My story is Redemption. Healing. Rescue. Time and time again.
My roots are in small town Texas but, larger cities are where I have spent 35 years as a business professional. These two different ways of living allow me the ability to relate to all walks of life; which I love!
Souled Out became a dream around 2001 and was founded in 2009. Souled Out! A ministry imparting freedom of every sort. My heart is so compassionate towards people living under any type of mental, emotional physical or spiritual oppression that it motivated my ministry development.
Throughout my life I’ve had the honor of pouring into the lives of people through my local church in women’s ministry, through Souled Out events, life coaching and through couples healthy living groups. A love for healthy living has developed me into a wellness warrior! Fair warning:)
Many years back I helped establish and lead a freedom ministry, Encounter Weekends, at Celebration Church in Georgetown Texas which prepared me to lead Souled Out. A long long time prior to that 🙂 I graduated Texas State University with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Business Administration.
Most of my equipping comes from life being thrown at me hard and fast and figuring it out. Therapy, Barnes and Noble and about a million hours with God helped too! Other parts of my equipping come from graduating CLASS Services speaker school, Austin School of Protocol, and from being certified as a Personality Trainer & Life Coach.
My husband Ron, my daughter Lauren and I live in Austin, Texas where I lead the ministry, run my consulting company and host my radio program Amy Mills L!ve. Journey alongside me as we live a life Souled Out and free!

Kari is passionate and relatable. Her words ignite hope for change and a call to be who God created you to be. She teaches that purpose is found in knowing your identity and through that, your destiny unfolds. Most of us live our days to survive but Kari is a clarion for living life to the fullest!
She was born in Fort Worth, raised in The Metroplex, West Texas and the Hill Country where she now resides with her husband and three amazing kids. If not spending time with her family, Kari is writing, working out and spending time with people.
Krissy Lilljedahl, also known as “The Heart Lady,” grew up in Austin, Texas and currently resides in Cedar Park, Texas with her husband of 23 years and their three children. In her professional career, she spent many years under the dome of the Texas State Capitol before becoming a stay-at-home mom in 2002. In 2013 she stepped back in to the professional arena working part-time for a statewide association, and there she remains today.
Representative in the heart shapes she finds EVERYWHERE is her God-given desire to extend love, grace, beauty, kindness, and compassion to the hearts that come across her path – they aren’t there by accident! She believes that we are to represent and reflect Christ in EVERYTHING we do, faith is not compartmentalized, it is WHO WE ARE – in the check-out line, at the basketball game, at the office, at home, at church, at the stop light, ALWAYS.
Krissy strongly believes that there is amazing freedom when one fully receives Christ and the immeasurable gift of his sacrifice that was fueled by the PUREST love, grace, beauty, kindness, and compassion…and complete forgiveness. Living and operating in this freedom requires so much more than head knowledge of God’s word; true heart revelation and transformation by Christ’s work on the cross is something completely different! It is a complete shift that ushers in the ability to forgive, release, move forward, reach others, and truly operate in LOVE.
As a poet and writer, she is currently working towards developing a space to share her work that reflects how she sees the heart of God and how she processes the world around her. She plans to use this platform as a source of encouragement to live your best love letter to the world based on the most amazing love letter ever written – the story of Jesus Christ. THAT’S living a Love Letter Life!
In the devotional Restoration Year by John Eldridge he states, “Only Jesus could get away with taking all of God’s commands – and boiling them down to two. Two. We’ve missed the brilliance of it, and the immense kindness too.”
Love God, Love Others.
Nicki is a native Texan and has lived in the Austin area since grade school. Married in 1984, she and her husband Willie have raised two kids and are now enjoying the abundant blessings that come with grand-parenting. Professionally, Nicki enjoys her position as the Controller of one of the nation’s largest women owned advertising agencies. She has been with the company since 1996, so it feels a bit more like family then a career.
In October of 1992, in an unlikely environment, her children’s day care of all places, Nicki experienced God in a way that was nothing short of miraculous. In a split second she was radically saved and forever changed. Her story is one of layer upon layer of healing combined with step upon step on the road to deliverance. She believes with all of her heart that her story does not belong to her. Her story belongs to the lover of her soul and He wants her to use it for His glory as He saves others from their respective pits of despair.
The Lord has used Nicki in a variety of lay ministries such as co-leading women’s ministry at her church, mentoring young women, leading small groups in her home, teaching Sunday School, and serving on the board of Souled Out Ministries. She is never more in her element then when she is sharing what the Lord has taught her about getting and staying free so that her precious sisters in Christ can live the abundant life they were designed and created for.
Amy is currently available for select speaking engagements, workshops and events. Reach out for more information.
