Perhaps you've been lifting weights for a few years. But do you even look like you work out? Are you spending disproportionate amounts of hours exercising wasting your time? Many fitness “experts” defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic?

John has written several books in the realm of fatherhood, family and that I hold dear, including:

Fathered by God: Learning What Your Dad Could Never Teach You,

Waking The Dead: The Secret to a Heart Fully Alive and

Love & War: Find Your Way to Something Beautiful in Your Marriage .

 

 

 

 

Lately, I've also been taking a brief 1 to 10-minute “pause” during the day to connect with my breathe, myself and most importantly, God. The One Minute Pause app that I've been using is a simple way to reconnect with God in the midst of a busy day. John Eldredge is also the "voice" of this this app, which  invites you into the simple practice of releasing everything to God, restoring your union with God and inviting Him to into your heart. The length of time is perfect, and the music/breath pacing has been working very well for me. You can click here to give it a try!
