Prayer Walk by Janet Holm McHenry

PrayerWalk by Janet Holm McHenry (Chapter 1 excerpt)

Have you ever made the commitment to exercise and then failed to follow through especially when life became hectic?  Have you ever wanted to have a great prayer life, but find other things getting in the way of having that alone time with God? This book that I have just finished reading called PrayerWalk actually puts those two things together.  Now, who wouldn't want to add exercise and prayer to their life!!  I really enjoyed Janet's book on the subject because I struggle with both of these areas.  I'm a mom to a three year old with a house full of projects and chores, and I frequently neglect exercise and taking the time to pray.  PrayerWalk is an encouraging book because it shows you that it can be done.  It also made me realize that if I don't plan the time to do these things, they will never happen.  She talks about all the health and spiritual benefits that prayerwalking did for her.  She used to suffer from depression....something that has plagued me for many years since the death of my brother and my 3 miscarriages.  Janet says in chapter 2 that after 3 months of prayerwalking her depression was gone and it hasn't come back.  Included in this book is a study guide and a 30 day PrayerWalk challenge.  You can read more about Janet Holm McHenry at her website and her blog.  You can also read the first chapter of the book at the top of this blog post.
I'm looking forward to putting this plan into action and accomplishing two very important things in my life at the same time.  If you are stuggling with these two areas, you should consider reading this book. I highly recommend it!
