About this title:

Synopsis: When it comes to your health, God wants you to be selfish. Crazy idea, right? But it's totally true. Far too many of us in church ministry choose to sacrifice our personal health because we're deeply dedicated to our family, our ministry, or other people's needs. But if we don't make our health a priority, no one else will. Veteran youth pastor Matthew McNutt knows what it's like to be "too busy" for a healthy lifestyle-but he also knows the rewards of changing course and practicing this good kind of selfishness. A former contestant on The Biggest Loser, he's ready to help you discover some powerful lessons about spiritual and physical health-and what it all means for those of us called to student ministry. Scripture speaks of our bodies as the holy and sacred dwelling place of God-the temple of the Holy Spirit. That's why a healthy you honors God. Plus, a healthy you benefits your family and close friends. And a healthy you guides teenagers toward a God-honoring perspective on food and exercise. Your ministry will survive if you give time to yourself-in fact, over time it'll be stronger because of it. And you will have modeled something powerful to the people you're leading. Matthew McNutt was a Season 3 contestant on NBC's weight-loss reality show The Biggest Loser, on which he lost 176 pounds. He has served in full-time youth ministry for 12 years, currently as the youth pastor at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church. He loves to speak and write, with contributions to Immerse, Youth Worker Journal, The Journal of Student Ministries, The Youth Worker Book of Hope, and other publications, as well as his blog, Matthew lives in Wilmington, Delaware, with his wife, Heather, and four sons.
