Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

The Wellness Revelation

The Wellness Revelation by Alisa Keeton is a great Bible study book - I've already recommended it to several different groups for audiences from 15-5.  She focuses on loving God, ourselves, and others, so it's not a diet or weight loss book at all. It's a tool to help women live healthy and whole lives without addictions and burdens. It's packed full of scripture and practical ideas for living well. The whole book has a hopeful,  you=can=do=it kind of feel.

It's set up to be an 8-week study. I wish I could change the layout of each week to be in a 5-day format.  The week's reading seems long because of the layout, but it really doesn't take much time to read it. Each week has a reading (10-15  pages with stories and education), a respond section (6-10 pages of what to do with the information learned), a renew section with journal style reflection questions, a relate section with accountability questions to share with a a partner, and a reciprocate section with a spotlight story about wellness around the world.

The end of the book has a food journal to photocopy and a workout calendar to follow during the 8-week journey.

Overall, though I think the layout is lacking, the content is superb and I'll continue to recommend this book to others.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
