Book Review: Fit To Serve by Stephanie Dean

Are you looking for a way to combine improving your health while improving your knowledge and understanding of God’s word? If so, this would be an excellent bible study for you. This book combines a daily bible study with daily health tips called “Health Bites”.

This workbook is a 6 week daily bible study. That focuses on Bible verses and provides health information, tips and specific actions that you are to do in order improve your health. Stephanie Dean is a Christ-follower and dietitian and has melded her knowledge of nutrition and her love of the Lord into an excellent bible study.

Some of the teaching points covered:

  • Think of the wonderful colors in God’s rainbow and compare that to the colors of the fruits and vegetables that God has provided.
  • Re-learn how God fed the children of Israel while they were wondering in the desert. God provided food but just enough for each day’s satisfaction. Give thanks for God’s provision.
  • This study will help you set goals for adjusting your food consumption.
  • If weight loss seems overwhelming re-read the message of Haggai “God is with you” and will help you with overwhelming tasks. Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
  • Galatians 5:13 for you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use freedom as an opportunity to indulge your flesh, but through love serve one another.

In the back of the book is a Leaders Guide that provides once a week lessons if you wanted to use this workbook in a group setting. Studies have shown that having an exerciser partner or weight loss partner increases your chance of achieving your goals. Also having someone else to study scripture with can expand your learning of God’s word, so if possible, I recommend at least finding one friend to take this journey with you. You cannot help but be blessed by spending time in God’s word and putting forth the effort to improving your health.
