Ben Sley has been engaged in a lifelong journey regarding weight “ups and downs.” He has finally decided to do something about it and has safely lost 50 pounds in 6 months by relying on God’s Word. In this book, he tells how he was able to do it, not with pills or supplements, nor with special diet foods, nor by attendance at weekly classes, but with reliance on Scripture. Along the way, he also utilized a few “special ingredients” which he discusses. Ben knows that God wants us to glorify Him with the “Temple of the Holy Spirit,” our bodies, based on how we nourish and bring this “Temple” into God’s Will. He has always been interested in nutrition and has a B.S. in Chemistry, which has impressed upon him that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” by Our Creator, and not the result of mere random chance of chemical interactions.
Ben now works as a patent attorney in northern California and resides there with his wife, Kathy, and their dog and cat. Ben and Kathy have three grown children, Sarah, David and Mary, and son-in-law, Bjorn, of whom they are very proud. They now have four beautiful grandchildren, Gabriel, Caleb, Kristiana and MaryKate. In his new, slimmer body, Ben wants to spend a lot of time with the grandkids!
