Start Losing, Start Living, a First Place 4 Health Bible Study, follows the ACTION principle outlined in Steve Reynolds’s book Get Off the Couch and Into Shape (Aware, Commit, Transform, Incorporate, Organize, Navigate). Using the biblical example of the Israelite’s conquest of the Promised Land, readers will discover how their leader, Joshua, became Aware of God’s calling on his life, Committed to the goals that God set before him, Transformed the Israelites into a fighting force, Organized the people to get them ready for battle, Incorporated the law of God into the people’s daily lives, and Navigated setbacks and obstacles to stay focused on his aims. As readers walk through these steps with Joshua, they will realize that they can make steps to choose to start losing weight and start living a healthy life!
