Today, I’m featuring Kimberley Payne, author of a great book you all must have, staying in shape God’s way! Check out the details:
Fit for Faith – 7 weeks to improved spiritual & physical health by Kimberley Payne
Are you looking for balance in your life? Believing that prayer, Bible study and journal writing are to the spirit what exercise, healthy eating and stretching are to the body, this workbook unites physical health and spiritual health through a 7-week program to lose weight and develop a deeper relationship with God. This workbook is a motivational tool to empower women to improve their physical and spiritual health to live balanced, whole and joyous lives that glorify God.
What prompted you to add a spiritual health component to a health book?
Kimberley: Although I’d been born and raised within the church, it wasn’t until I attended a Christian women’s retreat that I realized how much I had compartmentalized my life: family in one corner, work in another; finances here, health there; faith in its own box. I began to see that my faith shouldn’t be kept partitioned off from the rest of my life. Instead, it needed to be intertwined with all the parts of my life. If I was going to follow Him as my Lord, God wanted me to include Him in everything.
What can readers expect from the book?
Kimberley: Fit for Faith is a well-rounded balanced program that follows the stages of change. It’s also an awareness program. The reader is accountable to record their activities, and this helps them to recognize where their strengths are and what areas they need to improve.
What kind of feedback have you had from readers to date?
Kimberley: One reader wrote: “If there are books you must have at all times, this is sure to be one of them, not as a casual read but as a guide to achieving spiritual and physical well being and a ready reckoner for maintenance at the end of the seven week programme.”
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Kimberley: I love to hike in the woods, have a fun game of tennis, or enjoy a bike ride with a good friend.
Lastly, is there a Scripture verse that’s made a big difference for you?
Kimberley: My life verse is: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).
I’ve come to realize that worry is useless. God hears and answers prayer. I rely on this every single day.
