A 40 Day Adventure through Faith to Fitness
40 Days to Fit and Fabulous with Praise Moves includes a Morning and Evening Devotional plan that combines “Praise Moves” created by Christian fitness facilitator Laurette Willis with a devotional guide book. Each day’s devotional includes a theme verse, a daily Bible reading, a brief devotional challenge, and a section for recording personal plans and action steps in response to contemplative insights discovered.
The DVD takes the participant through a series of easy to follow instructions for both Morning and evening workouts incorporating praise moves, stretching postures, and highly motivating devotional thoughts; resulting in refreshing, emotional peace, spiritual renewal, and physical restoration. Beautiful background scenery adds an additional dimension to the calming effect of the body, soul, and spirit.
Willis has an uncanny giftedness for drawing the reader into taking that first step of “launching out into the deep” in connection with God’s purpose and presence. Her fitness tips offer practical suggestions for saving time, food preparation, healthy exercise, and reducing stress.
40 Days to Fit and Fabulous with Praise Moves combines faith and fitness to “super-charge” your spiritual life and your relationship with the Lord. Laurette Williams provides a blueprint for a new generation of Christians desirous of a focus on balancing physical fitness with spiritual wellbeing.
