Women will identify with the experiences of other women, and how each found and developed the emotional and spiritual strength to meet the challenges she faced. Foetisch then provides practical weight-bearing "exercises" for body and soul health, and information on staying strong and well, no matter your age or circumstances. Valuable take-away action thoughts, meaningful quotations, and concluding Scripture verses complete the "workout."
Women will be delighted and surprised at the recommendations, choices, and options available to them. They'll discover new ways of dealing with old problems and develop the multifaceted fitness they need to fearlessly face all of life's challenges.

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 hadnt thought of it yourself. One example is, Count on it, if somethings 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
