Description



NOURISH will provide you with encouragement and practical knowledge for living a healthy lifestyle, both physically and spiritually.

NOURISH is not another health or diet book; the message of this book is unique as it addresses all three aspects of health: spirit, soul, and body. The practical and spiritual tools provided in this book are what sets it apart from the rest of its kind. Too many people give up on their journey to health because they have a plan that addresses only the physical aspect of health. However, this book encourages the reader to first pursue health at a heart level, bringing lasting change that comes from the inside out.

In this book, you will discover how the health of your soul is the foundation to your overall health. Katie shares how to renew your mind and study God's word, which will change the perspective on how you see yourself, making loving yourself (and your body) possible.

You will learn how to replace lies with the truth and shift your focus from what the world says to what God's Word says. In addition to the spiritual truths, you will learn how to nourish your body with clean eating foods and get practical tools that make healthy living enjoyable and maintainable.

NOURISH will provide you with encouragement and practical knowledge for living a healthy lifestyle, in addition to providing a balance of spiritual and physical nourishment. This book will inspire you to get healthy from the inside out.

"As a model and fitness expert for more than a decade I know all too well about body image issues and unhealthy relationships with food. As a Christian, it certainly hasn't escaped me that the very magazines I am featured in and on perpetuate an ideal that many women feel burdened to achieve. With NOURISH, Katie encourages us all to dive into God's Word and discover His truths for our lives. Having wrestled with food and body image issues, being both overweight and underweight, Katie shares her personal testimony of how her relationship with God freed her from the burden to meet the ideals of the world and she lovingly shares with an open heart how you and I can do that in our own lives. She offers scripture, questions to ponder, prayers and recipes throughout the book like a best friend who is right there with you, lifting you up out of the trenches. If you've ever struggled or know someone who has struggled with self-worth and feels like their only value is wrapped up in their appearance, pick up this book and let Katie help remind you how uniquely created and deeply treasured you truly are."
Jamie Eason Middleton, fitness expert, cover model, author, and co-creator of Lean Body for Her
