During the next 12 week session, we will not be having "physical" weekly meetings, rather
we will be discussing the Bible Study and FP4H principles
via a closed facebook group.
"Motivated to Wellness" will give you hope and encouragement to keep pressing
toward your goals of living a healthy, balanced life.
Whenever you take steps to make a change in your life (or even continue on the path to
balanced living that you've already begun), you WILL be met w/opposition and
challenges that will attempt to derail your efforts.
Instead of grasping the full life that Jesus intends you to have, you will be tempted
to give in to discouragement & just quit.
However, it is at these times that you need to draw on the principles of Scripture
to fill you with hope and enable you to
continue pursuing your goals of physical and spiritual fitness.
"Motivated to Wellness" will guide you through these principles and
help you follow the course that God has set for your life!
