From the Author
Although I was born and raised within the church, it wasn't until I attended a Christian women's retreat that I realized how much I had compartmentalized my life: family in one corner, work in another; finances here, health there, faith over there.
I began to see that my faith shouldn't be kept partitioned off from the rest of my life in a storage trunk. Instead, it needed to be intertwined with all the parts of my life.
If I was going to follow Him as my Lord, God wanted me to include Him in everything and that included my health & fitness

7 weeks to improved spiritual and physical health
Written by Kimberley J. Payne
There are so many books out there about fitness and health that it is very easy to get confused...
Below are a few titles of chapters I wanted to share with you to give you an idea about being "Fit for Faith"
Part I: Exercise your body + Exercise your spirit
Chapter 3: Goal planning
Chapter 4: Exercise your spirit: Prayer
Chapter 5: Prayer strategies that work
Part II: Feed your body + Feed your spirit
Chapter 7: Feed your body: Healthy eating
Chapter 10: Feed your spirit: Bible study
Chapter 11: Bible study strategies that work
Part III: Stretch your body + Stretch your spirit
Immediately I see some very important chapters that many books forget to teach and that are the ones about how important not only about exercising and healthy eating but also the most important adding your inside spirit, such as prayer and Gods Holy Scripture's...BLESSED BY THIS!!!
I am reading this book through a PDF file and I really liked it in this format because I can look at it any time and it is easy to follow.
Kimberley gives you several ideas to set goals, different types of exercises, many Scriptures and prayer helps.
in Chapter 5 she shared this acronym which i LOVED
Follow the P.A.T.H. (praise, admit, thank, help) to prayer:
Also every Chapter is very short and to the point which is always a plus to me...
I am still in the process of finishing this book and praying I will start following the importance of being Fit in every way.
If you have tried to lose weight and/or are trying to get fit and healthy I recommend this book because of how Yahweh is lifted up, it helps you to include the entire body, mind and spirit and how easy it is to follow!!! Kimberley really encourages you to do your best to get fit...and has several other books and web sites to continue in this lifestyle

Payne's workbook program offers the reader information about the three components of physical fitness: cardiovascular exercise, strength training and stretching. However, the truly unique aspect of this book that is often missing in other books is it teaches you how to strengthen your relationship with God through daily prayer, scripture reading and daily journal writing.
As someone who has exercised most of her life, I liked how Payne connected physical exercise to spiritual growth. I have also been keeping a prayer journal for over 12 years and know the discipline it brings to a relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Thank you for this book, Kim!
Carol Round, author of "Journaling with Jesus: How to Draw Closer to God," and the companion workbook, "The 40-Day Challenge"
In her remarkable how-to book, Kimberley Payne has detailed a seven week step-by-step, holistic programme encompassing diet, exercise and faith in God divided in two parts along with appendices of exercises and tips. The first section sets out a detailed healthy lifestyle programme - a variety of exercises, their frequency and duration; food and drink choices and suggested eating strategies for best results. Great emphasis is placed on the importance of invoking God's guidance and help throughout, noting that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
The second section is a 49 day workbook, bookended with a prayer at the start of each day and a relevant verse of scripture to close. The recordings of the exercises undertaken, healthy food choices and a point for reflection, seemed designed to be the person's accountability partner, not leaving any room for exclusion of the day's routine.
Payne is no doubt passionate that every person who reads her book and takes up its challenge will come away spiritually and physically healthier and to this end she has included in a handy easy to follow manual, all that is necessary to achieve these goals.
If there are books you must have at all times, this is sure to be one of them, not as a casual read but as a guide to achieving spiritual and physical well being and a ready reckoner for maintenance at the end of the seven week programme.
