Living Fit: Make Your LIfe Count by Pursuing a Healthy You by Ronnie W. Floyd is an easy read for a someone new to the faith and a simple, valuable tool to add to any believer's toolbox. It's not a diet book and it's not catapulting you onto a treadmill. What it does do is break down what living fit actually means: spiritually, physically, relationally, financially, and emotionally. Each section continues with sub-topic chapters.
208 pages and 20 chapters.
Pastor Floyd backs up his writing with strong Scriptural references, encouraging his readers to live life with a purpose, to not take life for granted.
He encourages the reader to NOT compartmentalize fitness but to look at yourself as a whole person with spirituality at the foundation.
Much of this book was a review for me, but I did find the reminder and the structure meaningful. It's one you can continue to reference throughout your walk as we all need moments to rewind and recall what it means to be fit.
My favorite one liner is a poignant reminder as to what really matters.
