The Wellness Revelation by Alisa Keeton




The Wellness Revelation is an 8-week workbook. Each week takes a different focus of spiritual and physical wellness. Keeton does an excellent job of showing how the two are related and gently leads the reader through helpful revelations to open doors to better health and encouragement.
The main downfall of the book is that it references several workout routines, assessments, and plans that are not included in the book nor on the website. I'm assuming that they are available for a monthly fee through her organization. Without those, the book isn't as helpful as it could be. I felt a little like I was reading the class notes for a class I wasn't a part of. So I got the idea but felt that there was more out there.
As it is, it has several aha moments that it can help those that are looking to connect their spiritual and physical lives. I tried working through the book myself but because of the lack of assessments and personal accountability group, I was not encouraged to move very far through the program. On the website, there is a free seven-day detox. I am intrigued to figure out how much personal growth could occur by actually enrolling in a class, but my true hope was that the book would be a stand alone 8-week journey that I could do on my own or with friends. I wonder if an appendix or two was left out accidentally.

***UPDATE*** I was contacted by the publisher. The pdf file that is linked to from the Wellness Revelation Website actually has hyperlinks embedded into the file. Which means that yes, there is an appendix or two that are available on the web. The pdf links to various videos and podcasts. This addition does make the book a complete resource. Just need to add a willing spirit and maybe a buddy or two.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing House. I'm never required to give a positive review, but always thankful when I can.

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
