Book of Hope!!! by Beth on 2/20/14

I can't remember a time in my life that I wasn't desperately hungering for this book! When as a child even my sisters would call me fatso. When as a teenager the boys would pick me first for the football game, but never ask me out on a date. When between the ages of 18 & 20, my ideal of being wanted by a man, was being raped. When at the age of 21, I lost my father, the only person who ever told me I was beautiful. When I spent the last 30 years hating myself for how ugly I had become, knowing that no man would ever want me or find me attractive, and even believing for most of those 30 years that God hated me and had abandoned me. Oh, how I longed for this book!

In "If My Body is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch", Scott Davis shares through laughter and tears his struggles with his weight, his life on the road, the embarrassing times, the funny times, and the sad and hurtful moments that came from being overweight, but he also shares those inspirational times. Davis shares intimate moments during his journey, before and after his decision to make changes in his life. How our strengths can also be our weaknesses. Davis shares about the love of his family and friends, who were his biggest support system, even as they in many cases had to use "tough love" to show that support.

Davis shares the plan that he used to lose over 100 pounds in six months (with no exercise), but more than that he shares how the love of God encouraged him moment to moment, day to day, month to month. How his passion and love for God, and the desire to always be obedient to God's Word, kept him on the path to transforming his body into a "Temple of God". Using scripture after scripture, Davis shows how losing weight is just as much about our relationship with God as it is physical, and how prayer can transform not only our bodies, but all areas of our lives.

In "If My Body is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch", Davis shares that giving God all of ourselves is the only way we can truly make the changes in our lives that glorify God.

For me this is not just a book about how to lose weight....it's a funny and at times sad look at life. A look at how our actions and words can affect others lives. How we can be encouragers instead of enablers. How an ill-timed joke can cause others pain. It's a book about taking responsibility for our own actions at the dinner table. About taking ownership of what we are and not blaming others. It's a book about the love of family and friends, but mostly about the love of God, and the tranformations we can all make in all areas of our lives when we give back to God everything that He has given us, and let Him be the pilot of our journey.

It's a book of hope!!!!!!!!"
