About Selah Resources

Selah Resources was founded in 2009 by Michelle O’Rourke and Cindy Waddick.Michelle and Cindy Close friends and colleagues for 35 years, these women hope their knowledge and gifts will help others deepen their own spiritual lives.

Upon purchasing a home on Lake Erie in 2008, Cindy dreamed that it would exist to serve others who could benefit from having a beautiful place to rest, reflect and rejuvenate by the water. "Come, rest awhile……..Be still and know that I am God (Ps. 46)... You lead me beside still waters and restore my soul (Ps. 23)". Hence, Selah by the Lake was born. Michelle, with the publication of her first book, Befriending Death: Henri Nouwen and a Spirituality of Dying (Orbis, 2009), sought to find a way to make herself available to do workshops and retreats on its content. Selah by the Lake on Lake ErieTheir partnership seemed a natural fit.

Sharing a love for music and liturgy, they have served for many years in local parishes and schools, with various organizations in their community of Chatham-Kent, and with the Diocese of London. They have also facilitated retreats and days of prayer for many groups including teachers, parents, students, young people, women’s groups, bereavement groups, and parish teams. Last year they collaborated on an Advent retreat weekend based on the work of renowned teacher and spiritual writer, Henri Nouwen.

Both women have studied theology and spirituality and spent years in lay ministry positions. Selah by the LakeMichelle’s background in health care and Cindy’s background in education and spiritual direction give them expertise and flexibility in being able to provide a broad range of presentations and reflections on a number of topics. Many have enjoyed their engaging and comfortable presentation style in a variety of settings. Having raised families of their own, they have wisdom to share in many areas including parenting, family life, personal growth, loss, balance, and prayer.

Invite Michelle and/or Cindy to spend time with your group – large or small. Rates are reasonable, and available upon request.
