Book Review: Honoring God With My Body

Honoring God with My Body by Katherine Pasour

Hey everyone, I just finished reading Honoring God with My Body by Katherine Pasour and I have to say, it was a great read! If you’re looking to improve your physical and spiritual health, I highly recommend this book.

Scriptural References and Practical Tips

Katherine does a fantastic job of weaving in Scriptural references and practical tips to help you make healthy lifestyle changes. The book is well-organized with inspiring text, space for you to take notes and journal your responses, and thought-provoking questions. I really appreciated the focus on mental and emotional health in addition to physical well-being, which added depth to the book’s message.

A Valuable Resource

I used the book for my personal devotional time over a ten week period and found it to be a valuable resource. It’s perfect for both individual study and for use in a women’s small group Bible study. If you’re looking to live a healthier, more fulfilling life in service to God, I definitely recommend giving this book a read. It takes you on a journey towards wellness so that you can honor God with your body. A healthy body allows us to serve God and have our light shine bright in His service.

The Family Reunion

The Family Reunion

The setting was an old wood-framed church house.
Built by a tree on the crest of a gently sloping hill.
Its wood siding all faded and weather-worn.
The brass church bell for years had been still.

He walked up the hill to the church house.
With each step, old long-past years reappeared.
Soon in his mind, he could hear the congregation singing.
Then down his cheeks streamed the warm, wet tears.

Once again, the old song leader was his Grandpa.
His young Mama on a pump organ played.
Packed on the third pew were his mischievous boy cousins.
Standing by the back door to the music his dear Daddy swayed.

And old remembrances flooded his being.
A grand family reunion was well underway.
Hearing again the stories of King Jesus,
He couldn’t hold the tears at bay.

Then he moved from the little wooden church house.
Walked down the hill on the path just ahead.
The music and memories slowly fading in the distance.
He arrived at a cemetery with the graves of his family long dead.

There will be a great reunion in heaven in the future,
They’ll all be reunited one wonderful day.
They were all Believers in Jesus,
He’s the Light, the Truth, and the Way.
