A FEW WORDS ON BECOMING HOLY, WHOLE AND FIT, A 120 Day Devotional for Spirit, Soul, and Body from the Hearts of Fifteen Extraordinary Women. FEW INternational Publications. Copyright 2018.
Proverbs 25:11 tells us that “well-timed words are like apples of gold in settings of silver.” The words of these fifteen women authors, including seven bestsellers and many lifelong Wisconsinites, will nourish you, not just for the 120 apples a day they provide in these pages, but for a lifetime of personal growth. The four pillars of our physical health (nutrition, exercise, rest, and water) have clear and obvious spiritual counterparts and are all crucial to our health and growth as Christians. These extraordinary devotions will lead you through Nutrition of the Word, Exercising Your Faith, the Rest of God, and the Water of the Spirit.
Luanne earned Certification as a Health Coach through the M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing at Villanova University/ MacDonald Center for Obesity Prevention and Education (COPE) in 2012. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to help men and women attain optimal health over the years. She enthusiastically said, “Yes!” when offered the invitation to participate in this book on all-around fitness.
An excerpt from one of Luanne's devotionals: “ The first time I heard I was supposed to love my body, I thought the notion was ridiculous. My feet are flat as a duck’s and my knees dislocate on an ice cube. The list of imperfections goes on and on. I was always last on the bench to be picked for a team. I knew the marriage between contact sports and this body of mine was never going to be a successful one. It was later in life I realized that physical endurance came in many forms. Even if I could not compete in organized sports, I could run the race within myself and still achieve personal best. After all, my body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and God knew what He was doing when He gave me this one. (I Cor 6:19-20 Or do you not know your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?)
People are saying:
(5 out of 5 stars) “Great, short but easy-to-read, contemplative, and thought-provoking devotionals.” ~ Joseph
(5 out of 5 stars) “I bought "Becoming Holy, Whole & Fit" because I read the Amazon #1 Best Seller "The Miracle Effect" which was co-authored by many of these same women. They share their personal battles and God's healing in their lives which makes their books very relatable. Having several different authors involved gives you a wider range of battles encountered than it would if it was just a single author. The journaling section provides you with an area to write down how God spoke to you through the devotion, or to note if you are struggling with the same issue presented. You can look back on these in the future and note how God has worked things out in your life.” ~ Kim
(5 out of 5 stars) “I gave my mother this book as a gift. So glad I did! She just loves it. Helps to keep her on track and focus on her spiritual health. Great read for any women in your life.” ~ Molly
