If you’re ready to really live better, select one or more elements of the 7-step Model for Healthy Living—Faith, Medical, Movement, Work, Emotional, Family and Friends, and Nutrition—and follow the 40-day plan to improve your life, just a bit, day by day. With plenty of practical advice, biblical encouragement, and stories of real people who’ve taken the same journey, this book—from the Church Health Center in Memphis, the largest faith-based clinic of its type in the U.S.—may be the most important book you read this year!
Dr. Scott Morris is a family practice physician and ordained United Methodist minister who founded the Church Health Center in Memphis, Tennessee. The center, formed in 1987 to provide quality healthcare for working, uninsured people, has grown to become the largest faith-based clinic of its type in the United States.
This book was a wonderful surprise. It is so synthesized and succinct, and yet full of useful information. The format also was really unique.
This book will be one someone could work through again and again and make more progress towards a balanced life each time. They will find a balance between mind, body and spirit. This was an amazing book that anyone looking to live life and live it to the full could benefit from reading.
If you really devoted yourself to following this book for the 40 days, you really could change your life.
Great book to get you up and moving, watching your weight and your health with faith as your base. Great motivation!
I previously read Dr. Morris’ book Health Care You Can Live With and was quite impressed with it. Let me say this one I really loved! I was actually surprised – I wasn’t expecting it to be so helpful!
I wasn’t expecting to have a plan laid out before and to have blanks I could go through and figure out what I needed help with. I really really liked this format for this style of book — it puts it in an action plan at your finger tips and gives you a timeline to finish it! Talk about setting people up for success!
