Katherine Pasour’s Honoring God with My Body

“What I do, I do not understand. For I do not do what I want, but I do what I hate.” Romans 7:15~ 

That’s a verse that may come to mind when we’ve eaten too much of something that isn’t so good for us.

At this point in the year, most people’s New Year’s resolutions are long forgotten. Eleven days remain in Lent.

The closer we get to Easter, the more I dream and plan of the things I want to eat that I’ve done without for some time. As I begin to shop for our family’s traditional foods, I find myself yearning for foods I’m better off limiting or avoiding altogether.

Enter Katherine Pasour and her new book Honoring God with My Body: Journey to Wellness and a Healthy Lifestyle.

As most health and wellness books do, Katherine’s calls us to eat and exercise well, get enough sleep, and manage stress.

Even so, this book is not just another health and wellness book to collect dust on your shelf while you shame yourself for eating yet another cookie (or six).

Katherine presents a spiritual road map. This book strikes at the heart of our eating, sitting, restlessness, and worrying about things we cannot control.

We’ve spent years, perhaps decades thinking we have a food problem or a job problem. Many times, though, our problems are spiritual. We have forgotten who we are and who God is. We’re focusing on the wrong things.

“Healthful living is not just about what we eat or how active we are, although those two aspects of health are very important. Achieving good health involves recognizing the many dimensions of health: physical, mental spiritual, emotional, social, and vocational. These aspects intertwine, each one affecting the others. When all aspects of health are balanced and viewed as important, we can strive for better health.”

Honoring God with My Body is organized for daily study for an individual or group.
