The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life

The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life

by Rick Warren, Daniel G. Amen, Mark Hyman

Chapter 1: How It All Began – Pastor Rick Warren

Wow! Everybody’s FAT!

That shocking thought kept reverberating in my mind one bright spring day as I was baptizing 872 adults.

I’ll admit it wasn’t a very spiritual thought for a pastor to have especially while baptizing! But I was getting tired, since our church baptizes the way Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River- by lowering people under the water, then lifting them back up.

That day, based on the average weight of Americans, I lifted more than 145,000 pounds!

  1. This sounds different for sure but, probably not one that I’d be drawn to. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. That opening really got my attention! I loved Rick Warrens first book.

  3. OMG! What thoughts for a minister…LOL. The book sounds like an interesting read, though. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s mine: “CARDINAL CABIN”

  4. Oh, that’s interesting!

  5. My friend did this a few years ago and it really helped her.

  6. I enjoyed this opening. I will take a look at more of this book. 🙂
