Combining inspirational with practical themes, Burdens Do a Body Good by Michelle Howe and Dr. Christopher Foetisch seeks to encourage women to face their challenges and get on with life. Each meditation looks at problems which often wilt the toughest of us: personal life challenges such as anxious uncertainty, exhaustion, deep regret, financial setbacks, divorce and widowhood, aging, setting boundaries, plus many more. All discussions follow a similar plan -- interesting quotes from special people; the author’s intimate thoughts on the subject, drawn from her own and others’ experience; some practical suggestions for relieving the problem, called Weight Bearing Exercises; and a helpful Bible verses. The section titled “Sorrow: Facing Difficult Situations with Courage, Strength, and Fearlessness,” reflects on how unexpected death of a loved one tears at a person. In this section, Howe speaks of the part time and faith plays in healing. The Weight Bearing Exercises include talking with trusted friends, understanding our own limitations, and preparing your inner strength before tragedy strikes. It ends with Psalm 56:8 (NLT), “You have collected all my tears in your bottle.”

More a practical book than a spiritual one, Burdens Do a Body Good is based in Christian thinking and provides some decent food for thought. The ideas are simple, relevant, and of the type that makes you wonder why you hadn’t thought of it yourself. One example is, “Count on it, if something’s worthwhile, worth going after, it will entail some degree of risk.” A book which fits easily in purse or lunch box, Burdens Do a Body Good will adapt to those moments when it is nice to have just a few paragraphs to read. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
