Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105.
52 scriptures. 52 reflections. 52 pages for you to write your own reflections.
When you make
the decision to lose weight, it can often be a struggle. As Christian women, we know that the word of God
is our very present help in time of need. Patricia Thomas’s husband bought her a journal as she began
her weight loss journey. She never planned to use it. However, one day she began writing
down the scriptures that gave her encouragement and she related them to her weight loss challenge of the day.
Over time, she realized that the word was very clear on how to handle this issue victoriously. A
Christian Woman’s Journal to Weight Loss: A 52-Week Guide to Losing Weight With the Word can
help you, too. In a week-by-week format, this book includes the 52 scriptures that Patricia relied on and
her reflections on how those scriptures helped her face her weight loss challenges. The book follows each
scripture with a journaling prompt that the reader can use to help her focus that scripture on her weight loss challenges
and record her own reflections. Perfect for individual or group use.
God has a plan for our
lives, and as women we have to remember that it is not to give of ourselves until we have just given out. We
must make time to take care of the temple that we have been given, so that we can live and live abundantly.
I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly. John 10:10
We hope that you
use A Christian Woman’s Journal to Weight Loss: A 52-Week Guide to Losing Weight With the
Word to help you have a healthy and abundant life.

"A Christian Woman's Journal to Weight Loss: A 52-Week Guide to Losing Weight with the Word: is about one woman's
mission to lose weight and how blending in a spiritual workout helped her mission. With fifty two scriptures and reflections,
Thomas urges readers to follow her example, and "A Christian Woman's Journal to Weight Loss" is fine reading
for those who want their spirit to get in shape with their bodies."--The Midwest Book Review/California Bookwatch, April
“The combination of the spiritual along with the practical
gave [the author] the insight as well as the strength to walk through this particular season in her life. Those
who are really sincere about losing weight and developing a healthy lifestyle will benefit and be blessed as they follow her
journey and stick to their own plan on the strong days as well as the weak days.” Pastor Taijuan
and Torica Fuller, Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, Lincoln Heights, Ohio
"Just when I thought I would give up and accept the weight I had gained, God sent a guide to me. A
journal and the word to help me. Since beginning to read the book I have lost weight and my mind has changed about my
health and wellness. I am so looking forward to continuing this walk with God and reaching my goal." -- Tracey
Artis, CEO, I Hear Music, Inc.
