Respect for the Body through Excercise from a Christian Perspective Dec 31, 2006
One of the teachings of the bible is the purity of the body. In modern times, this is achieved by practising healthy diet and excercise. Laurette Willis spent 25 years immersed in yoga, metaphysics, New Age, Psychic, Tarot, and Crystals in her life until 1987 when she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ. In the spirit of Let Go and Let God ... Willis was inspired in prayer to develop Praise Moves ... a Christian inspired stretching program with biblical teachings to help Christians walk in mind, body, and spirit with God. This is an ideal program for committed Christians who want a physical regime born within the context of their faith.
Just another way to make money out of your religion May 30, 2006
As a christian man, I think, making money out of your religion in a way other religions do, is the wrong way. Christian people should help other people to understand the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us and not how to get fitter through your religion. This review is ment for all books like this one and people, who read or write this books should think about their believe, do you really think you are on the right way?
Basics Steps to Godly Fitness - Exactly what the Dr. Ordered Nov 10, 2005
Laurette Willis brings it together for your body, soul, and spirit in her book "BASIC Steps to Godly Fitness". I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a well-balanced way of staying fit for the rest of your life. You can spend a lot of time researching many books for bodily exercise and others for feeding your soul and spirit. However, Laurette has all this and much more packaged together in this ONE book. Godly Wisdom and humor makes it hard to put the book down. I will refer to the book for years to come for advise in diet, recipes, and exercise programs.
Reading this book brings to reality just what you hear from many physical trainers, and many Doctors...but Laurette has a way of writing so you can really make this an easy part of everyday living...
BASIC Steps to Godly Fitness Nov 2, 2005
Wow! It almost doesn't seem real that something so simple can be so life-changing. But it is. I couldn't put this book down and I'm about to pick it up again for another read-through.
Laurette Willis incorporates her own life experiences with Biblical truth to give an inspiring and powerful testimony and plan for Godly fitness. For those of us who have struggled with weight or self-esteem issues throughout our lives, this book is an answer to prayer. Not only does it address the spiritual issues, but also the physical - something I've never found in a single book before.
PraiseMoves, the Christian alternative to yoga, is an extreme answer to prayer. I seriously asked God to show me what yoga was really about and anything I could do that was similar. I googled the subject and ended up at PraiseMoves' website in only a few clicks. This book contains a wonderful introduction to the poses and thoughts behind the movements.
I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for God's way to health - both spiritual and physical.
Answer to my prayers! Oct 24, 2005
I love this book and highly recommend it to everyone looking for a biblical approach to fitness and eating healthy. Laurette has a lot of helpful tips that are easy to incorporate in your daily life. I will be purchasing copies to gift my family and friends with.
And she also has a great program called PraiseMoves which is the "Christian Alternative to Yoga"!! Something I have been searching for which teaches stretching poses with Scripture verses.
