When I was participating in the Body for Life Challenge this September, I started thinking that I had a lot in common with Bill Phillips. Nope, not the big muscles or the big bucks! I could relate to his passion for sharing a new life. Bill wanted to share the new healthy life possible through physical fitness. I want to share the new life possible through spiritual fitness.
I got the idea for a New Life Challenge using prayer as exercise and Bible reading as nutrition this summer. But if not for Deb and Phyllis I wouldn't have run with it. Pardon the exercise pun! I am so thankful for their encouragement and for God's grace allowing me to prepare this challenge for January 5th, 2009.
I'm often asked how I "do it." Now I can tell you: take the New Life Challenge! It's free. Choose one goal, spend ten minutes and fifteen to twenty minutes reading the Bible's New Testament each day, and watch your spiritual muscles develop. Check out the website, download the challenge guide, sign up for the weekly newsletter, participate in the forum, and get ready for a new you in 2009! No matter what your goal, God can get you there. If He can change me, He can change anyone.
Change is always easier when you aren't going it alone. Please share the www.newlifechallenge.net website with friends and family members and encourage them to join you in taking the challenge.
