- Every Body Matters: Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul, by Gary Thomas. This is an excellent book that I highly recommend.

This book is one that I could (and probably will) re-read continually for years to come.
- Prayfit is a ministry run by Jimmy Peña that focuses on providing daily encouragement to believers. Jimmy is a follower of Jesus, a renowned author, and an exercise physiologist. He has worked with everyone from “average Joes” to celebrities like Mario Lopez and LL Cool J.
20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
