Book Description:

Filled with humor and I can relate life experiences, Faithful, Fit and Fabulous is the ideal 8-week life boost that will refresh any woman's life. Gospel principles from scriptures, priceless gems from general conference addresses, and more, are shared along with ways to readily apply them in your busy daily life. Establish holy habits, feel fit and fabulous, and get organized. Just one goal a week for eight weeks simple and fun.
My Review:
This was a book that I was meant to read and then study. With all of the fiction that I read, it is good to read a non-fiction book that is so poignant for me at this time of my life. On the front cover of the book it says, "Get Back to Basics and Transform Your Life in Just 8 Weeks". What a wonderful invitation for all of us to start taking care of ourselves again, so we can then take care of our families better.

I love how Connie outlines goals to help readers outline a personal life plan. She presents goals for women, LDS/Christian, to help find success in these areas:
Holy Habits, A Person Life Plan, Being Fit & Fabulous, Your Finances, Joy in Womanhood, Balance in Motherhood, Organization, and Relationships. There are many quotes from LDS church leaders, but not anything that any Christian women wouldn't be able to understand and glean from these words of wisdom. 
The beautiful thing about this book is that you don't need to follow the book chapter by chapter. During the 8 weeks Connie recommends you follow the first two chapters:Establish Holy Habits and Create a Life Plan first, and then you can choose to continue anywhere you want and go from there.The most important thing is to take your time and do the exercises as outlined in the book. After the first two chapters, I went straight to chapter 4:Feel Fit and Fabulous. I have been on a quest to lose weight and become healthy again. I really appreciated the section that discussed "Emotional Triggers" that cause people to over-eat/binge/snack too much etc.  The other section that I have been working on is chapter 6: Getting Organized. Connie talks about how we need to organize our time, space and our family. Every idea was presented in an easy way that families will be able to incorporate into their lives. 

This book is not a typical dry self-help book, but has lots of humor and true stories full of experiences that will motivate readers. This is a perfect book to read and start your New Year off right. Faithful, Fit and Fabulous is a fantastic gift for mothers, sisters, friends, and of course for yourself.
