Blog Tour: Fit For My King

In her newest book, Sheri Rose Shepherd as created a plan that steps beyond a typical diet, and instead is a 30-day fast from several things including white sugar, white flower and artificial sweetners.

The book also contains 30 days worth of devotions focusing on a variety of topics including anger, hopelessness, loneliness and being real with God.

What I Think
I'll be honest, I cringed a bit when the book arrived in the mail. It had been a bad week, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with life and other things.

The idea of sitting down to read a book about dieting, well, made me want to run to the kitchen to make a bowl of mac and cheese.

When I finally cracked open the book, I found a book that was easy to read, thanks to Shepherd's conversational writing style.

While I'm not ready to jump into her fast - I'm still trying to break the "fast food" grab and go -  I can easily see myself using the devotional plan for the next 30 days.

Each devotion comes with a plan, an action plan and a truth treasure, to help reinforce the truth that we are princesses for the ultimate King - God.

I think the themes found in the devotions are things all women - regardless of age - need to hear. The other information - from the fast to the recipe - provides things for women to think about.
