Overview

The media labeled Steve Reynolds "The Anti-Fat Pastor" after he lost more than 100 pounds and launched a stunningly successful weight-loss program in his church and community. In Bod 4 God, Pastor Steve reveals the four keys that have unlocked the door to health and fitness for him and for countless others who have dedicated their bodies to God!

Steve had been overweight all of his life--he weighed over 100 pounds in the first grade! After playing football during high school and college, he vowed never to exercise or run laps again. That was one promise he kept, ballooning to 340 pounds and staying there for years. Now, in Bod 4 God, he shares the simple lifestyle changes--both inside and out--that led to his incredible weight loss, and he invites readers to change their lives forever by committing their bodies to God's glory! In addition, Steve shows local churches how to impact the health of their entire community, by hosting "Losing to Live" events, such as weight-loss competitions and team-driven fitness campaigns.

    Awesome Book!

    This book encourages readers to take a look at their life and what they are putting into their body. It gives a fresh perspective on eating, why we eat and how we can glorify God with our bodies. It has changed my life and brought a great team of people into my life.

    The four keys to Bod4God are dedication, inspiration, eating and

    The four keys to Bod4God are dedication, inspiration, eating and exercise, and team. Finding a balance in those aspects of your life, will lead to a balanced life (physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally) and reinforces putting God first. In his book Bod4God, Pastor Reynolds gives a refreshed emphasis on scriptures that most Christians have grown up with, and helps you to focus on how Gods word tells us to take care of our bodies in all four areas (p/e/s/m). By honoring God with your body, motivating yourself for change, managing your habits, and building your circle of support you will begin your journey on finding a new Bod4God, and may be surprised at how easily these keys relate to every aspect of your life -- from weight loss, financial burdens, depression, and other things that we struggle with.

    I have personally known Pastor Reynolds since 2009 when I went to his church to check out the Losing 2 Live program which is based on the Bod4God book. Based on implementing the strategies and keys provided I was the biggest loser that session and became a leader soon thereafter. I have seen firsthand how successful implementing the four keys has been in my own life as well as countless others. Like everything else, you must be dedicated to yourself and want to succeed. This is about a lifestyle change. Identifying what works for you and sticking with it. Remember Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” So ‘Get Off the Couch’ (see Pastor Reynolds book just released in December 2012) and get a ‘Bod4God’. (Both books are worth adding to your library.)

    For individuals who are not Christians, I still recommend this book, as I believe it provides an insight you may not have to a relationship with Christ, as well as how to live a more centered life. This is about taking Small Simple Steps to change yourself on the inside and out and implementing a lifestyle plan. YOUR lifestyle plan. God loves us regardless, but he has also provided us with tools to lead a more fruitful and purposeful life and ‘Bod4God’ is one of those tools.

    As an active participant in the Bod4God program and one who has read and studied the book, I can personally attest to the efficacy of Bod4God program and the insprational message of this book. I have personally seen hundreds of people's lives positively impacted by the mesage this book delivers and the lifestyle it encourages. Pastor Steve Reynolds stands heads and shoulders above all others in explaining the connection between a Biblical worldview and a healthy lifestyle.

    Pastor Steve Reynolds Book was life saving and life changing. When my father died I started eating uncontrollably and developed heart disease. I adopted his four keys to life and they saved my life. It also taught me that God is  my light that will keep me on the path of healthy living. Thank you Pastor Steve Reynolds for your book that  truly teaches people have to lose weight and keep it off.I have lost 65 pounds and now my  heart disease is gone.
