Book Giveaway for Family Health

Through the winter, I’ve had a bit more time to browse through books, and I’ve been enjoying one of the newest on my shelf- Health for Godly Generations.

Prior to the book’s publication, I had marked it on my Amazon wishlist, and then noticed it in the Vision Forum catalog, so I was thrilled to receive a review copy!

Renee’s book is a comprehensive collection of research advocating a desire to glorify God  through “real food” eating, a sustainable lifestyle, and other healthy choices, which will not only benefit us, but generations to come. Here is her philosophy:

“Real, whole, natural, traditional, ethical, nutrient-dense, flavorful foods. From organic plants and clean animals. Local and seasonal, fresh and handcrafted, when possible. The diet we were designed for. Genesis 1:27-29 & 9:3.” –Health for Godly Generations

Renee references many of my favorites, including Nourishing Traditions, The Coconut Oil Miracle, The Maker’s Diet, and In Defense of Food, among others. I’ll definitely be keeping this book available on our homeschool book shelf as my children grow older. (We’re already sifting through dubious health claims of conventional textbooks as we study diet & digestion for our kindergarten curriculum!)

Honestly, as I sit here reviewing the book, I’m munching on a bit of real dark chocolate (and a big glass of water). I loved seeing “dark chocolate” listed as a “health food” in one of her helpful charts in the book! :)

I stocked up with some bulk shopping this past week, and have started some freezer-cooking. As I filled my grocery cart, I kept some of her current research and advice in mind, and eyed those labels a bit closer; especially as I selected some frozen fish!

Renee has offered to give away one copy of Health for Godly Generations to a Frugal Granola reader!

    I love this book so far from what i have seen, I would love to own a copy of my own. Thanks!

  • It’s uncanny the timing of this post and my finding your website in general. The premise of this book is exactly what my husband and I set as our focus for this year. Moved to our farm 2+ years ago in search of the same. Now that he is retired we will have the time to pursue the concept 24/7. Would love to win the book, can’t wait to read it.

  • I did as you requested and “liked” the Health for Godly Generations Facebook page. Looking forward to reading some of her posts on it.

  • Scanning over the newsletter archive gives me lots of reading to do. Thanks for sharing the link I’ve signed up.

  • Jess

    I have been on a journey to live and eat clean as god intended. I would love to learn from this book. I love that it is focused from a Godly perspective. Hope to win.

  • Jacquie Olsen

    This book looks very interesting in that I truly desire to make great changes in my diet, losing weight NOT being the priority but rather to be and to serve my family in the healthiest ways possible. God’s Word motivates me so if He is involved, maybe that’s just what I need. :)

  • Jacquie Olsen

    I did “like” the Facebook page for Health for Godly Generations. :)

  • Our family has spent the last 5 years learning to eat better (we still have a ways to go) and raising better food. It sounds like this book adds a piece to the puzzle – the why we need to pay attention.

  • I’ve also just signed up for the newsletter

  • And liked their facebook page. 😉

  • laniq

    The book looks very interesting and similar in perspective to what I have been leaning towards myself, I am interested to see how she brings in her Christian perspective to the subject of diet.

  • Ashley

    Great looking book! I just visited the website. Over the past 2 years my husband and I have sought to learn about more real foods and healing through whole foods. We love the “garden diet”. First introduced to us by hacres, I really love finding Christian biblical info on food and health and healing. It is about the spirit but I truly believe God made it about the body too, desiring us to live full, healthy and joy filled lives despite living in a sin stricken world! Looks like a great book, would love to get my hands on it:)

  • Megan

    I would love this book because I am always wanting to find ways to glorify God through ALL areas of my life and am so interested to see the Biblical support she uses.

  • Shanna

  • Mindy

    I am more and more interested in whole food living… this book seems like a good resource :)

  • Molly

    This book looks like just the thing I need to get my husband and I away from processed foods. I’m already on the journey but my husband is more stubborn on it.

  • I’m currently reading this book! [So I’ll refrain from entering the giveaway.] :) I’m enjoying it.

    Cheer’s for dark chocolate. :)

    I signed up for the newsletter. The past newsletter about Dr. Gerson’s cancer therapy was so eye-opening. I wish people weren’t so close-minded about things like that. I would dearly love for many of my friends to embrace it!

  • Jackie Leyba

    This book giveaway couldn’t have come at a better time. I just bought Seeds of Deception and Nourishing Traditions. We just moved to a house that has fruit trees and space for a garden. I’ve made a resolution that this year will be healthier for the whole family. Our rent is going to be less so we will be able to add a little more to our grocery budget.
    Like Molly who posted, I’m starting myself on this, but my husband is a little stubborn as well. I would LOVE the opportunity to win this book!!!!

  • Sounds fantastic! I would love the opportunity to win this book because it is exactly my passion in life and the focus on my blog.

  • Cindy C

    Very timely and sounds like a great resource to help all the generations of my family.

  • Lori G.

    I would love to win this book. We eat healthier than the SAD, but I know thats not enough. I have been learning and changing my families diet over the last several years. I feel I am at a stand still. With teens grumbling and not wanting to eat what we have, I have fibromyalgia and my time in the kitchen is very little and there are 4 out of 8 that have Celiac Disease.

  • Whole foods nutrition is such a foreign concept to me – I’ve only just begun my journey to cooking more from scratch, using locally grown produce (including my own) and farm raised animals. Somehow we truly have strayed from the biblical design God intended for us to eat by. This book sounds like a great tool to learn how to get back to basics.
    Blessings,
    Michelle

  • Gayle H.

    Looks great! We already follow a traditional foods diet, but I would love to be able to fully appreciate it from a Biblical perspective. We also are starting to combat the bad nutrition advice that we find in our textbooks, and that my kids hear from other authority figures, so I think it would be a great homeschooling resource too.

  • samW

    this looks good, I think we are in a world of “just do it” & that is wrong, I think we are to “think” about what we do, eat, wear etc. & put a little passion into life & go the extra mile in taking care of ourselves & our loved ones….would be very interested in reading this book!

  • Julie

    always looking for ways to keep my crew healthy.

  • I’d love to hear a good case for the link between healthy eating and my faith (I believe there is one, I’m just not sure if my arguments are all that strong). Looks like a great book!

  • Kj

    For the last several years our family has been on what is now termed “a whole foods diet.” For me, it was and is simply our way of farm life based on what we have gleaned from Scripture and family history. I would love to read a book on this topic from a Biblical perspective. We are truly “fearfully and wonderfully made….” food is a blessing from our heavenly Father – when used appropriately.

  • Pam

    Thank you in advance for the opportunity to win this generous offer! We need to reform just about everything in our lives, don’t we?!

  • I would love to read this book – I’m so intrigued and awed by the idea that God cares about what we eat, and we can glorify Him in that area of our lives.

  • Leslie

    I would love to win this book! Sounds like a great book that will be helpful for the entire family.

  • Leslie

  • We have been on a journey to eat more they God intended us, searching out local real foods. This book looks perfect to help us continue down this path. Thanks for the chance.

  • Michelle

    I would love this book!

  • This book sounds like it is an answer to my prayers! I have had a desire to feed my family in the way that God planned. I think that this book will give me the inspiration to finally move 100% in that direction and not give into what is easy. This school year has been devoted to Psalm 139 and we are trying to honor God by honoring ourselves.

  • Julie

    With the start of a new year and trying to make changes for healthier living for our family, this book would give me insight to move in the right direction. Thank you for offering a free copy of this book as a giveaway.

    God has blessed me with a wonderful family and I am accountable for raising them the right way. Apart from teaching them about God I have a responsability to teach them about nutrition. I would love to win a copy of this book to help with my responsabilities as a wife and mother of three! Thank you.
