The Divine Design: Embracing God’s Message for Girls
A key message I found incredibly powerful in the book is the idea that each and every one of us has been uniquely designed by God. He intends for us to live for Him and love Him, and part of that includes taking care of our bodies. This is why we believe it’s essential to incorporate health and fitness into our lives. When we make unhealthy lifestyle choices, it can diminish our confidence. Therefore, it’s important to find a balance between seeking God, looking after our bodies, and making wise decisions as we grow into strong and confident women.
