|Itís God's truths that steady our wavering faith when life's trials and heartaches shake us to the core of our being. Shaken to the Core provides sustenance and strength for men and women from all walks of life who are going through ó or living in ó tough times: illness, grief, financial crisis, physical limitations or other difficulties. Combining a physical therapistís insights on the ways the human body works and heals with related Bible facts, the devotionals in Shaken to the Core weave body and soul together, drawing readers closer to their Creator, the Source of all strength and comfort, and helping build core spiritual endurance as they strengthen their physical core muscles.
Parker introduces each devotional with a fact about the body that she follows with a pertinent scripture verse. She then illustrates the healing in the verse by enlightening readers with the relevance of Godís message to their situation and providing personal testimonials from a variety of individuals who have come through suffering. Each devotional includes Soul Therapy (a relevant prayer) and Work Out (an exercise, stretch or spiritual activity to help the reader utilize, internalize or further the healing message of the scripture verse).
When hard times shake body and soul, it is important to nourish both. Now Marjorie Parker provides Christian readers with a handbook on how to use pertinent messages in the Bible to let God help them heal.
