Christ Walk Kids: A Spiritual Journey for Tweens and Teens, by Anna Fitch Courie

Title of book or publication
Christ Walk Kids: A Spiritual Journey for Tweens and Teens
Author(s)
Anna Fitch Courie
Publisher
Morehouse Publishing
Month and Year of Publication
October 2016
Description or summary
christ-walk-kids-full-rgbChrist Walk Kids: A Spiritual Journey for Tweens and Teens is a spin-off of the bestselling Christ Walk health and spiritual fitness program used by thousands of adults. It offers a fun and inspiring approach to instilling practices of caring for body, mind, and spirit. “Our children are inquisitive about their health, their bodies, their relationship with God, and their purpose in the world,” says nurse, author, speaker—and mom—Anna Fitch Courie, who developed both programs.

Using a fitness tracker, kids track their steps and mileage as they imaginatively trace biblical paths. For example, one route might be between Jesus’s hometown of Nazareth and Jerusalem, a 65-mile journey that requires 4,000 steps (1.6 miles) per day. Each day covers a topic related to health and spirituality: physical exercise, nutrition (“God did not hang protein bars on the trees in the Garden of Eden,” Courie points out), sex, drinking, drugs, praying, lying, stealing, bullying, and many others. Courie encourages parents to read the book with their older children and teens, and accompany them as they build a foundation of healthy choices.
