Guidelines for Healthier Living – The Importance of Physical Exercise, Proper Nutrition, and Spiritual Fitness
“Healthy and Free – A Journey to Wellness for Your Body, Soul, and Spirit” encourages the reader to become more aware of the importance of physical exercise, proper nutrition, and spiritual fitness and introduces a series of practical, proven guideline for healthier living.
The book is also Beni’s personal story, a story of struggle and transformation, a story motivated by her passionate love and concern for peoples of the world, who are undernourished, or unaware of the need for and importance of finding and pursuing tools that lead to healthy living.
The importance of soul health is reinforced with Biblical principles and documented examples of how this is a precursor to physical wellness. In her presentation of “Tools for Health” ” Beni discusses hydration, the power of sleep, exercise, proper eating, and detoxing for a better life. I found the Q&A section to be of special interest as well as the recipes and the references to essential oils, and nutritional supplements.
The book is thoroughly researched and meticulously documented with chapter end notes and a resource list with websites with recommended product brands, food documentaries, recommending reading, and recommended blogs.
Beni Johnson serves with her husband Bill Johnson as senior pastors of Bethel Church of Redding, California and is highly respected internationally for her role overseeing Bethel’s intercessory prayer ministry.
A complimentary copy of this book was received for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
