How Enliven is Different
You won’t find any article, product or service that 1) compromises the word of God or 2) negates the fact that the reason we exercise and eat right is to honor God, not to look a certain way or be a certain size. The idea is not to promote an external goal, that is an added benefit, but the very purpose of living a healthy lifestyle is to honor God with our bodies and to live long so that we can fulfill his will for our lives.
Our magazine features stories on the physical, nutritional and spiritual issues involved with weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We provide advice and tips from doctors, nutritionists and fitness professionals. More importantly, we give you the stories of average men and women – mothers, sisters, brothers and dads – who have struggled with weight issues, real people, just like you, who have fought to lead healthier lives and are succeeding.
Some of the unique features you’ll find in our magazine include:
- Poems and stories that reflect the emotional issues surrounding weight loss.
- Spiritual words that will inspire you to keep faith in the journey even when you’re at your worst.
- Ideas like salsa dancing and yoga in the park that make fitness fun!
It is only through the knowledge of Jesus Christ can one even begin to live healthy. This magazine is devoted to teaching Godly principles based on the Word of God.
