I had a great learning experience in reading this book. My wife had participated in a home study of this book last year. I remember thumbing through the book & noticing it covered fasting. Tina was not able to make every session & really hasn't commented much on the study. When I ran across the book later I decided to read it. Originally I was just picking it up periodically as I was reading another book but after finishing that one I concentrated more on the contents of "Greater Health God's Wa ...more

I first read this book in the 1980s and find that the principles the author covers are just as relevant as ever. While she couches this in Christian terms and Biblical principles of health, I think that the steps for health presented here are universal - what we need to do in order to be healthy is the same whether Christian or not. Christians are not alone in their need for peaceful living, exercise, natural foods, water, sleep, time spent in fresh air and sunshine, and periods of fasting (basi ...more

This is a very good down-to-earth book, I LOVE Stormie. The only thing I sorta disagree with is eliminating sweets completely. I think God allows us to enjoy them in moderation. I know that Stormie swears by vitamins because she grew up malnourished and had poor health until she discovered vitamins and supplements so I know where she is coming from but I don't see any harm in having a slice of pie every once in a blue moon but she is right, in America we are accustomed to consuming WAY too much ...more

She is so right about spiritual/physical connection. The advice she shares here is good and her passion really comes through. Some of the references are dated (leg warmers, ha!) but that is the time when this book was written. I liked and appreciated the section on fasting and am going to give it a shot.

My second time reading this book.

Stormie gives 7 steps to living God's Way. These 7 Steps will make you healthy.

My favorite chapters are 1,3,5&7 My all time favorite is chapter 5. Stormie focuses on prayer & fasting. Teaching how to fast.

This book will continue to stay in my personal library.

This book honestly scared me. I have had experience with eating disorders and this book set off warning bells for me. I found it very obsessive and extreme. I found myself questioning the validity of a lot of the "facts" and her daily and weekly rituals. Living a healthy life should be enjoyable but there was no fun in this book at all. Lots and lots of rules that would make me hate my life. Not a fan at all!! BEWARE if you have any tendencies towards eating disorders. ...more

This book was written in 1996, but is still appropriate for right now. Great health is never out of style and the seven steps are certainly doable. Great book, great information and I plan to implement this immediately. (actually already have been doing most of it)

If you want to know how to be healthy God's way, I recommend you read this book to help you get started.

I thought it was a nice book with a clear perspective. In my opinion there was a little too much repeating the same things over and over which made some chapters longer than they could have been. Nontheless I've learned a lot from this book! ...more
