Day 150- February 20th, 2019

Hello Readers-






I hope that you are all doing well. I have no heat here tonight and I’m getting very cold, especially my fingers. So, it’s going to have to be a short posting.

Back on the first day of this blog, I said that we would be looking at five aspects of wellness: SpiritualPhysicalIntellectual, Nutritional and Emotional/Social.  I use the word SPINE to help me remember these divisions. (Some folks analyze wellness into fewer divisions while others include more, such as financial wellness.)

 We’ve talked about intellectual health several times, including the importance of reading.   Some books have the advantage of increasing our intellectual wellness while at the same time helping in at least one of the other areas of wellness. Below is a list of recommended books to read for Spiritual Wellness (from “Solutions by Softonic”). As you know, if you’ve been reading this blog, I am a Christian and will recommend reading the Bible for your spiritual wellness every time. And that’s why I have it in first position in the list. (It’s not in the “Solutions” list.)   Here is the list with links to some information about each book. I hope it is helpful, and that you find at least one book to read:


A scientific defense of spiritual & religious faith (Tony Jack) about 20 minutes:

In Christ Alone (BYU Vocal Point) about three minutes:

“Trust God First” (Charles R. Swindoll at Dallas Theological Seminary) about fourteen minutes long:

“Nearer, My God, to Thee” (BYU Vocal Point and BYU Men’s Chorus) about 3.5 minutes:

The Spiritual Life, Christian Audiobook, by Andrew Murray (over seven hours long):


Thank you for reading and for joining in the quest for wellness.

See you Sunday!
