SPRINGDALE, Ark. — For more than three decades, Ronnie Floyd has pastored one of the largest churches in America, trained generations of leaders, pioneered ministry platforms and initiatives and lead national organizations and prayer movements. Now, he’s distilling the wisdom and the insights he has collected throughout the years into a legacy book that will help leaders everywhere master the essential disciplines for a wholly healthy and successful life.
“Living Fit: Make Your Life Count by Pursuing a Healthy You” (B&H Publishing Group) by Ronnie Floyd releases Friday, June 1. Pre-orders for the paperback, ebook and audiobook are available online on LifeWay, Amazon, ChristianAudio and anywhere else books are sold.
In “Living Fit,” Floyd dispels the myth that our spiritual health should be considered separate from the other aspects of our lives we tend to consider mundane. In fact, Floyd argues that our spiritual well-being is directly tied to our physical, financial, relational and emotional health — and vice versa. If we want to live a life of genuine impact, one that makes the most of every opportunity and leaves a lasting legacy, we need to intentionally pursue health in every sphere of our lives.
“Life is a gift from God. You do not determine how long you will live, God does,” Floyd writes. “As for me, it’s a sobering thought to realize that even before this book is on the shelf, I could die. Yet, I also know that while I cannot determine how long I will live, I can determine how well I do live.”
From Ronnie Floyd’s personal journey of setting a daily exercise routine to the practical steps to get your finances in order, “Living Fit” reveals the secrets to integrating spiritual maturity, mental wellness, relational success, financial wisdom and personal fitness. The book is divided into five spheres of personal health that build on each other to form a balanced lifestyle. In “Living Fit,” you will learn to:
- Identify each area of your life with the necessary insights for living healthy spiritually, physically, relationally, financially and emotionally.
- Check each gauge in your life that measures how you are doing in these critical areas.
- Put together a winning plan that will become your ongoing strategy for true and complete fitness in every strategic area of your life.
- Discover the importance of your mind, will, emotions and body all being under the authority of God’s Spirit daily, consistently and regularly.
So much more than another book on dieting, fitness or emotional wellbeing, Living Fit is the Swiss army knife of personal development for everyone — from CEOs and businesswomen to personal trainers, young professionals, stay-at-home moms, retirees, pastors and any leader who wants to lead a healthy life. Its pages contain the indispensable lessons that have made Ronnie Floyd one of the most impactful ministry leaders in North America — and could accelerate your success as well.
“Each choice you make will lead you toward or away from a healthy you,” writes Floyd. “Your choices today will determine your fitness tomorrow. Choose now for your future to be fit.”
