bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Most about spiritual transformation, little about physical wellnessAugust 28, 2017bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2The aim of this book is to help us get on a path to health and wholeness, to renew our whole person, inside and out. It is an eight week journey in which Keeton teaches mostly about our relationship with God and gives a little nutritional information. The idea is for us to develop our own fitness and nutrition plan from the bits of information given.
Keeton lays the foundation of seeking God first. The issue is deeper than food so she spends most of her writing on the spiritual aspect of our lives. She writes about fasting and its benefits. She informs us about nutrition in week three and suggests a detox fast (sugar, white flour, alcohol). Week four addresses activity after another spiritual lesson. The rest of the weeks have a spiritual emphasis.
This is a book for people who are serious about changing their life, both spiritually and physically. Keeton has us starting the program by signing a contract with God. This is serious business and requires a commitment to do the work. Keeton does not give a specific diet nor a prescribed exercise routine so we need to be self starters to make this program effective. Workout videos are available at the Revelation Wellness website.
The material in this book is really nothing new. I have seen it many times before in books for Christians on establishing a healthy lifestyle. I think the strength of this book is the material at the end of each chapter. Questions are included for use by individuals or in a group. A Renew section emphasizes spiritual questions. The Relate questions helps apply the information in the chapter to our daily lives. There is also a success story included. Those aspects of the book would make it a good choice for a small group study.
Keeton quotes a study that says in 2014 it was determined that seventy percent of Americans were overweight. If you are one of them and are ready to make the commitment to renew your spiritual life as a foundation to recreating yourself physically, this book has some information and lots of encouragement to get you on your way.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
Shelley5 Stars Out Of 5So transforming and comes with video training as well (great value!)August 11, 2017ShelleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have followed Alisa Keeton on her podcast Revelation Wellness (so amazing) and am part of their online fitness program RevWell TV. She is the real deal. I love how she shares her heart honestly but always leads us back to Christ.
If you need a transformation physically, emotionally or spiritually - read this book and start listening to the podcast.
God has used Alisa in my life in huge ways this past year from body image, to identity, to overcoming shame and so much more.
This book is an amazing 8-week study AND it comes with a full 8-weeks of video trainings and workouts. It's literally like having a personal trainer walking you through each step of the process for much less than the cost of one session with a trainer.
I highly recommend the book and this ministry!
AmyL5 Stars Out Of 5Not your typical weight loss bookAugust 10, 2017AmyLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5No longer is weight loss about the food. Or the workouts. It's about service to God.
Rather than being all about the external things - food intake, workouts completed, pounds shed and inches lost - The Wellness Revelation is about being spiritually fit. It's about finding wholeness for your whole self.
I went in having already listened to the author, Alisa Keeton, on the Revelation Wellness Podcast. At the beginning of the HOT Texas summer, I was actually able to complete some beginning runs with a smile on my face! (Note: I am not a runner, so this was miraculous!) Anyone who can make me run with a smile on my face and not feel like I'm dying feels trustworthy. I was buoyed by Scripture and reminders of who I am as a daughter of the King.
Keeton is a certified fitness professional, and she understands that marrying our spiritual wellness with our physical wellness is what will ultimately free us to be who God designed us to be.
I'm not sure I can put into words the freedom that I have found in taking The Wellness Revelation journey. It's a book that walks you through a journey to find wholeness. But Keeton isn't just concerned about our outward and physical appearance. She wants us to find our rest in God. To find our purpose in who he created us to be. And to use fitness as the tool that gets us there.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
