  • As a former fitness professional, I so appreciate a comprehensive approach to health (mind, body, spirit). Ashley Darkenwald has created a health resource that’s easy to understand, absolutely attainable, and applicable to our everyday lives. If you’re in need of a fresh start or you have questions about nutrition, exercise, or even establishing new healthy habits, take the time to work your way through the pages of this book. You’ll be glad you did. —Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, author of Your Powerful Prayers
  • I never realized there was a spiritual component to my health. I now view my body as a temple of God. I’m so much more careful about what I eat, and it doesn’t feel like punishment; it feels like freedom.     —Linda E.
  • I started eating mindfully for the first time in my life. It’s the only thing I have really done so far. I am feeling better, I have lost weight, and for the first time, weight loss hasn’t been painful. —Fred B.

Why Did I Write this Book?

Freedom, balance, and abundant life are just a few joys I find in Jesus. I have discovered and am excited to share the good news that my faith journey includes all elements of my health, including physical fitness and nutritional choices. Living Wellness for Growth Groups is based on my own health experiences, the experiences of thousands of successful clients, and years of research from leading experts in the field (quoted throughout the book). The program focuses on three main elements:

1. Nutrition (the art of eating for nourishment, rather than for fuel alone)

2. Fitness (I call it “happy movement” because I encourage you to find something enjoyable)

3. Faith (encouragement and support from the Creator of your body!)

We have one beautiful opportunity to explore what it means to live life to the fullest, in all areas of our lives. You were created for more than mediocre!

Join me on a journey toward freedom, balance, and an abundant life. Join me on a journey to Living Wellness.
