Author, Marsha Apsley, will be signing copies of her book, 40 Days of Faith and Fitness: A Devotional Journal on Thurs., May 17 from 6:30-7:30pm at the library. She will be speaking about how the book came into development and giving some healthy living tips at 7pm.



Tired of avoiding your reflection in the mirror? Feel like you’re never going to break free from this struggle to lose weight? Poor body image and weight loss struggles plague women of all ages. Whether we’re actually overweight or not, there’s an ongoing struggle to feel comfortable in our bodies. We feel like we need to do more and be more and lose more weight to look good enough and to feel loved. But losing weight and exercising is not how we overcome these struggles. We overcome them by building our lives on a foundation of faith.

We must begin to see our struggles in a different light by seeing ourselves in a different light, as the fearfully and wonderfully made woman that God created each of us to be. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. The Bible tells us this in Psalm 139 but too many women struggle to embrace this truth.

This faith and fitness devotional will take you on a journey to seeing yourself the way that God sees you. In the process you will learn practical tips to living a fit and healthy life that is sustainable. For the first time you'll see your body as a temple to be cared for and honored the way it was meant to be.

Above all else you will become more aware of God's love for you just the way you are. The book includes a scripture, devotional content, and action step and prayer for each day followed by a journal page where you are encouraged to record how you took the action step, maybe your own prayer, or how God is working in your life.
