This is a pretty special day for me. It’s my first release as a book marketing manager with Booktrope where I’ve been with the project from the beginning. I’m incredibly excited and honored to be a part of Mary Graziano Scro’s team at Vox Dei Publishing, helping bring Intentional Fitness to the world. I love Mary’s work because she uses real life illustrations for spiritual parallels, and you know me and my mind for illustrations. And I can’t even begin to tell you how much fight this woman has in her – it’s just incredible!
Congratulations, Mary, and happy release book! I’m so honored and blessed to be a part of your team, and I look forward to working together as time goes on.
About Intentional Fitness:
We live in a world that desperately needs Jesus, but can’t find Him.
Why ? Because many who bear His name (Christians) are not spiritually fit enough to walk in His ways. And how do we know what “fit” is in a world that is increasingly void of any mention of the name of Jesus? How do we hear His voice to know His ways with so much godless static assaulting us every day, from all directions?
We’re told in the book of Philippians to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Is this working out of salvation anything like other workouts we’re familiar with? Will this workout take discipline, denial, and diet? Will it require intentional effort, possibly even a daily commitment?
The answer to all is a resounding yes!
Intentional Fitness teaches about spiritual fitness using physical fitness principles and analogies. We work out physically to take care of our bodies; we work out our salvation so others can see Jesus. Only by being intentional about our own spiritual health can we live life to the full – the kind of life Jesus created us to live and died to make possible. And only then can we bring the Kingdom of God and His love to a world in desperate need of both.
