Lifestyle mentor Michele Howe and orthopedic surgeon Christopher Foetisch offer a well-rounded "training manual" filled with inspirational insight and practical advice for handling life's toughest battles with inner and outer strength. Thematic chapters begin with Howe's trademark real-life vignettes and essays on personal and situational topics: loss, sorrow, aging, job displacement, divorce, parenting issues, financial setbacks, illness, and more.

Valuable take-away action thoughts, meaningful quotations, and concluding Scripture verses complete the "workout." Women will be delighted and surprised at the recommendations, choices, and options available to them. They'll discover new ways of dealing with old problems and develop the multifaceted fitness they need to fearly face all of life's challenges.
