Practical Steps to Health and Wellness 

By Dr. Joshua Trock  

I pray that through this journey, as we’ve investigated what it is to have a Theology of Health, you now better understand why we should strive to live life as optimally as we can.

My hope and prayer today is that you will discover a deeper theological motivation to consider the benefits of exercise both in a physical and a spiritual context.
