Health for Godly Generations Giveaway!


There are so many books out there today. There are good books and there are bad books but when you find an excellent book you want to share it with the world!

That is how I feel about Health for Godly Generations. I have read many books on nutrition in the past and even from a biblical perspective but I was very impressed with this book and I want to tell you why...

The author of the book, Miss Renee DeGroot, has a passion to see everyone living full, purposeful lives serving the Lord healthfully and abundantly . We cannot do so without understanding how nutrition, food and culture impacts the way we eat and live. The American diet is in a sorry state of decline and we are suffering as a nation for our poor choices!


Here is an excerpt:

"Caring for our bodies by feeding them what God created goes hand-in-hand with taking good care of nature. Often, food companies carelessly exploit what God created, just to hand the consumer a distorted product--distorted from the way God intended. As Christians, we need to take care of the earth, not because its resources are imagined to be steadily diminishing, but because the Lord commands us to take dominion. Proper dominion honor the sovereign Creator. God created all things well; we need to use the earth wisely and skillfully lest our sin destroy it further."

This book gives us an indepth and thorough look at the history of food through the present and does it eloquently through a wonderfully reformational perspective. Here's a peek of just some of the helpful and informative chapters:

Wise Physical Stewardship
For Pleasure and Sustenance
God's Sovereignty over Health
Humanism Addressed
Toward Multiple Generations
Meals for Family Culture
Surrounded by Pollution
Buying What We Believe
Macro-and Micronutrients
Charts for Comparison
Health-Conscious Shopping
Putting It into Practice

I highly recommend this book to all of my readers! This book will help you understand the poor and dangerous state of the foods that we consume on a daily basis and never think twice about that are making us sick. It offers wise and practical solutions for the every day wife, mother, and homemaker---and it just doesn't apply to them but it applies to EVERYONE! Health for Godly Generations is a timely eye opener to helping us all live a better, healthier and longer life!

Health for Godly Generations is currently having a  6% discount on this valuable book at Winepress Books using discount code 067605, which is good only for today, so be sure to visit and check it out.

  24. I'm probably not eligible for this giveaway but wondering if she does ship overseas if I was to purchase it online. It is very good value for me to buy books out of the States at the moment with the strong Australian dollar. It sounds like a wonderful book which encompasses all that my family believes about nutrition. I have read a number of books on health from a Christian perspective but this is the first one I have seen that addresses family culture in relation to health. Thank you for the recommendation - it is now on my wish list.

  25. Dear Ann,
