Manejae Regina5 Stars Out Of 5No but, how are you really? Hows Your Soul?November 20, 2016Manejae ReginaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Judah Smiths book asks the deep question of how is your soul?. We aim to succeed in worldly things like owning a house, having okay kids, money, healthy bodies, healthy minds, which are all great but how often do we check on our insides? How do we measure how healthy our souls are?
Judahs book helps us to fixate on the health of our insides, because all that prospers on the outside can only prosper as much as our souls can. We can have everything our heart desires and be the most loved person on the planet, but if our souls are not healthy we still feel empty. We are merely living for our flesh.
This book gets you thinking beyond how you feel about things happening on the surface and helps you to return home with God, and to live life to the fullest with a healthy soul. Living in God is the only way we can live fully as He has intended us to live. He wants us to enjoy life, enjoy family, enjoy your hobbies, to enjoy things around you! Judahs book asks pondering questions that guide the reader into starting a healthy soul focused lifestyle. We dont often focus on our soul as much as we do our bodies and finances. When the core of our soul prospers, the rest of our life will follow.
Start enjoying life to the fullest! How is your soul? Really though.
-Easy read, if you dont read much, like me (guilty) its GOOD
-Hilarious, his book is lighthearted but filled with pondering questions
-Backed up with scripture
Im starting to see life in a new way. I start with focusing on my soul, and then everything else falls into place. Im motivated to be healthier, Im motivated to do other things that align with Gods desires for me. I start to enjoy things around me instead of feeling guilty about enjoying life that God has offered me. I can hear God more clearly, worry less about things out of my control and fully worship God for who he is in my everyday life.
brandon faust5 Stars Out Of 5must read!November 18, 2016brandon faustQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Reading How's Your Soul by Judah Smith helped me:
1. Evaluate how I'm really doing
2. Pointed me back to being filled up by Christ alone.
3. Ask others "How's your soul?" instead of just saying "How are you doing?"
How's Your Soul is a quick and enjoyable read about the value of finding rest and enjoyment for your soul--in Christ.
Judah's wit, relatability, passion for God and his transparency made reading this book and applying these principles to my life seem more attainable with God's help.
As a pastor, I've often found myself more concerned for the state of the souls of the people in our congregation and in my best efforts to help them find rest for their souls--- I've often neglected my own.
This book is a fresh reminder that the health of our soul and finding that enjoyment and rest in God will help us worship God with our entire life and soul, which will lead to an overflow of Christ's love and grace in our relationships.
I highly recommend this book for everyone but especially for pastors.
