Description
Being a woman in today's world means wrestling--physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally--with lots of weighty struggles. Lifestyle mentor Michele Howe and orthopedic surgeon Christopher Foetisch offer a well-rounded "training manual" filled with inspirational insight and practical advice for handling life's toughest battles with inner and outer strength. Thematic chapters begin with Howe's trademark real-life vignettes and essays on personal and situational topics: loss, sorrow, aging, job displacement, divorce, parenting issues, financial setbacks, illness, and more.
Women will identify with the experiences of other women, and how each found and developed the emotional and spiritual strength to meet the challenges she faced. Foetisch then provides practical weight-bearing "exercises" for body and soul health, and information on staying strong and well, no matter your age or circumstances. Valuable take-away action thoughts, meaningful quotations, and concluding Scripture verses complete the "workout."
Women will be delighted and surprised at the recommendations, choices, and options available to them. They'll discover new ways of dealing with old problems and develop the multifaceted fitness they need to fearlessly face all of life's challenges.
