There have been many books written on diets and exercise programs and yet most people have not changed their health habits. People don't need more information, they need motivation and inspiration.
For We Walk by Faith-Motivation and Inspiration to Get Physically Fit contains thirty one devotions that will take the reader on a journey examining their own life and health, their call from God, the obstacles they face, their relationship with the Lord, the tools they need to change their life, the importance of establishing values, the need for friends and mentors, the brevity and preciousness of life, and ways to find strength and motivation. For We Walk by Faith unravels the unique relationship between faith and fitness and develops the conviction everyone needs to make resolute changes in regards to their health, faith, and values.
2 Corinthians 5:7 says "for we walk by faith." Learn how to use your faith to change your fitness.

This book is one of the few that held my attention. 'For we walk by faith' is easy to read, the real life stories are funny and relate to everyday life. The way the author uses scripture in relation to fitness made it clear and easy to understand how God works though us and he just wants us to be our best Spirit, Mind, and Body, I have enjoyed reading this and I look forward to using it as a reference book.
