9780399145438: Change Your Life: Achieve a Healthy Body, Heal Relationships, and Connect with God

From the remarkable woman whose message has inspired hundreds of thousands of people--a simple, four-step plan to a new, improved life.

Well known in the Christian community for her practical philosophies and dynamic personality, Becky Tirabassi is a phenomenally successful speaker and author who has sold more than 750,000 books. Her "Change Your Life" radio spots air twice a day on more than 150 stations across the country. Now she presents a commonsense guide to change that shows all of us how to radically transform our lives.

Whether struggling with an addiction, trying to break a bad habit, or searching for spiritual fulfillment, we all yearn for a way to change our lives for the better. Change Your Life is based on the premise that long-lasting change begins with awareness, is empowered by admission, can be successfully achieved through a practical action plan, and is sustained by accountability. Becky describes the four simple tasks that we must focus on in order to facilitate dramatic change in our lives: eat right and exercise, plan and persevere, give and forgive, and talk to and listen to God. Becky Tirabassi's unique blend of spirituality and self-help has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to live more satisfying, fulfilling lives--and by following the steps outlined in Change Your Life, we can all experience the same success.

Review:

Obtaining a balanced life is an aspiration that often leaves one feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. For Becky Tirabassi, the desire to transform herself from an overworked, selfish mother into a fit, focused woman led to concrete change. Based on biblical principals, Change Your Life is the "how to" of life change, written by a once-alcoholic party girl who now makes her living as a motivational speaker and author. "Long-lasting change begins with awareness and admission and can be achieved and sustained through accountability," she writes, after promising to motivate each reader to achieve "desired changes through a practical action plan." This action-plan is a four-component process focusing on the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental aspects of life. In each section Tirabassi asks poignant questions that aim at drawing out weak or imbalanced areas. She manages to prove that each facet is interrelated and actually can be balanced if we would take responsibility for our failures and make a concerted, daily effort.

Tirabassi's own testimony reveals a dramatic life change when she became a Christian, followed by reevaluating her out-of-control life years later. Now she uses a journal to turn balancing her life into a daily event. She confirms that although each and every person has different struggles and strives for different dreams, the biblical principals for balancing one's life remain the same. Those seeking transformation will notice that she refrains from using the biblical language for such things as sin (failures) and forgiveness (admission), hoping to attract those who have misconceptions about the Bible. While the Christian will most likely find the disciplines contained here refreshing and encouraging, the person who is groping to find God will hopefully hear and respond to the message that ultimately saves lives eternally--that of the Gospel. Change Your Life is the ultimate in spiritual self-help. --Jill Heatherly
