In this book author, Kristen Feola, guides her readers on a 6 week journey on how to exercise your mind to become more spiritually strong, as well as a few key exercises to tone your body.

Feola worked as a fitness instructor and personal trainer for a number of years and as such writes her book, Spiritually Strong, with fitness metaphors to guide you to being more spiritual.  The book is divided into 3 parts, Core, Exercises, and Program.

Part 1 talks of the core and that just as your body's physical core holds you up and carries your weight, your spiritual core "muscles" do the same.

Part 2 talks of specific exercises that strengthen the spirit such as study, prayer, fasting, etc.

In the 3rd section Feola writes a program modeled after the way an athlete would train for an event such as a marathon, with a warm up, exercise, and cool down, with bonus challenges.  For "warm up", you are given a passage to read from the bible.  "Exercises" are given in the form of questions and things to do like copy a verse or highlight a section of your bible.  For your "cool down" you are guided in a short prayer, which is followed by "challenges" which focus on your body with a short exercise and/or food focus.

This would be a nice guide for
  • beginners in faith
  • ones that need help to find their footing in their spiritual walk
  • people who want to combine fitness with spiritual growth
  • believers who want help with both their body and their mind
