Meet Our Founders

Begin Within Ministries exists to inspire others towards a deeper connection with Spirit while creating a life they love, through the intentional, innovative, and collaborative efforts of Rev. Jeannie Soverns and Michelle Davis, RScP(soon to be Rev.) and based in Religious Science principles.


Our Sunday services are called Sofa Sundays, as we are not your mama's church and do things our own way. We are a dynamic, fun, and interactive duo, encouraging conversations, questions, and seeking the mystery of the Divine. We are unfiltered, vulnerable, and real. We love and support each other and others in our Spiritual Church Club. We welcome all faith traditions.

Try something new and join us on the Sofa every Sunday at 11:11 AZ time. Live streaming on the Sofa Sundays Facebook Group, Instagram page, and Begin Within Ministries' YouTube page,  or IN-PERSON at the Unleash Your Life Studio.
