"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit? . . . Therefore, honor God with your bodies."
Weight lifting, Prayer, Cardio, Catechesis, and a Healthy Diet.
Using the saint of the day as inspiration, Kevin Vost (Fit For Eternal Life), Shane Kapler, and Peggy Bowes (The Rosary Workout) have crafted a daily devotional that works toward the ultimate in fulfillment: living as God planned – body and soul, whole and holy.
"Tending the Temple gives readers ample impetus to get up off the couch they read it on! Far from being an intimidating workout regimen or spiritual gauntlet, Tending the Temple will disarm readers with its approachability and humor. For active and lethargic readers alike, this book is a unique assemblage of principles and practicality for every Christian." Matt Swaim, host of EWTN Radio's Son Rise Morning Show and author of Prayer in the Digital Age
"I have added this fantastic devotional to my morning prayer and am much better for it! Combining the wisdom of the spiritually strong with the tenacity of the physically motivated will bring you into the union with Christ that we all crave."
Jared Zimmerer, author of The Ten Commandments of Weight Lifting
"I enjoyed how the authors intertwined the particular Saint of the day's virtues with practical ideas for our own well-being. I would say that this book is a page turner, but part of the challenge is that it is meant to be read one-day-at-a-time! Personally, I couldn't wait to see what the next day would hold."
Mary Lou Rosien, author of Managing Stress with the Help of Your Catholic Faith and Catholic Family Boot Camp
"Tending the Temple gives persistent prods toward spiritual and lively living. Whether you are looking for a New Year’s resolution, a spiritual and healthy plan for Lent or Advent, a strategy to keep fit during the summer, or if at any point during the year you feel a need to work on your spiritual and physical health, Tending the Temple might be the perfect tool."
Theresa Doyle-Nelson, author of Saints of the Bible, and More Saints of the Bible
