Love & Care For The One and Only You

Have you spent several years of your life trying different ways to lose weight? Have you missed important events in your life because you were afraid to show up due to your appearance? Maybe you’ve tried all the latest fad diets, made routine visits to the gym, and asked others for advice, but you continue to “yo-yo diet” by gaining and losing the same 20 pounds again and again. Have you grown discouraged and given up? How long has it been since you really liked yourself?

“You can’t spell ‘GOD’ without ‘GO!”

Maybe you’ve accepted the lie from the enemy that you need to be satisfied right where you are “because it’ll never get any better than this.” Author Michelle Medlock Adams says it’s time to break the curse and start involving God in your workout. Sometimes we need a makeover from the inside out, and she points out how important it is to put God first as we pursue a happy, whole fulfilling life.

It’s time to break the curse and start involving God in your workout

In her book, Love & Care for the One and Only You, Michelle relates to the reader in all 52 chapters. She’s been where you are. She’s gained and lost, tried all the diets, been through the ups and downs, and she uses this book to encourage you to take a new approach — try doing it God’s way. “You can’t spell ‘GOD’ without ‘GO!” she says, emphasizing that exercise won’t seem so much like work if we are doing it unto the Lord.

The chapters in this book are short, but they all provide sound advice relating to the improvement of our physical health. They also include spiritual nuggets of wisdom on how to improve our relationship with Jesus Christ. Each chapter ends with three sections: The Power Prayer; Work Your Words, which provides inspiration to commit to new goals; and a Healthy Hint to give some tips on how to carry out the challenge just discussed.

We need to fight Satan’s attempts to persuade us to give up too soon and accept the mediocre life he has planned for us.

Michelle is well known for writing award-winning children’s books, but this book is all about adult women and the battles we fight daily such as our own negative putdowns, dressing room meltdowns, and lack of self-confidence – all due to our external appearance. She reminds us we can never go back to our early 20’s, but she encourages us to develop a vision for the future to become physically and spiritually fit. Throughout the book, she relates to us by sharing her personal fights with the same battles we all have faced. Her victories inspire us to overcome the enemy and take care of our bodies while we draw closer to God.

You don’t have to reach a certain weight to qualify for that whole ‘being perfectly created’ verse. You already qualify!

She also brings our family into the picture by listing some fun ways we can keep our children active and showing us how our spouses can make great workout partners.

Some other highlights include:

  • How to set boundaries and prioritize what is important
  • Three components that indicate if we will achieve our goals
  • Truths to meditate on to make us joyful
  • A healthier way to flavor coffee
  • Ways to feed our spirit and reduce our body fat at the same time
  • Practical ways to ward off temptation and make it easier to walk away
  • Ten ways to implement small changes to help improve our health
  • One of the most common reasons for headaches and anxiety
  • Several recipes for yummy healthy foods such as zucchini brownies, avocado chicken salad, “No-Guilt” chocolate shakes, and no-bake energy bites
  • Websites and apps that can help us take time for fitness and eating healthy
  • How to conquer “emotional eating”

Michelle’s message is one of encouragement to take responsibility for our own lives as we fight against the bondage of Satan, who she calls the “King of Hopelessness.” We need to fight his attempts to persuade us to give up too soon and accept the mediocre life he has planned for us.

“If you get nothing else from this book, I want you to get this – you’re not a mistake,” Michelle said. “God doesn’t make mistakes. You don’t have to reach a certain weight to qualify for that whole ‘being perfectly created’ verse. You already qualify!”
