As for Me and My Body

As for Me and My Body logo

Candice McField is the founder of Candice McField Fitness and As for Me and My Body. She is a certified health coach, fitness educator and serves on the Kansas Governor’s Council on Fitness.  McField is passionate about teaching wellness solutions that help her clients strengthen their relationship with Christ and instruct clients on practical ways to keep their bodies mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy.

In her book, As for Me and My Body, McField invites churches to connect their spiritual and physical health to come to a deeper understanding that taking care of the body is an act of serving God. By incorporating relevant scripture, McField challenges readers to evaluate the body, mind, and spirit through professional insight, scriptural portions, and personal stories that are encouraging and easy for anyone to understand. McField guides clients through a personal, life-changing quest that will enable faith leaders to:

• Strengthen their relationship with Christ

• Increase joy, happiness, energy, and hope

• Stop dieting and live a healthy lifestyle

• Conquer health and fitness goals

The Health Fund has partnered with McField to lead a group of 20 Healthy Congregations members through the book with four weeks of coaching calls. You are welcome to sign up as an individual or as a Healthy Congregations team (please include the name of each team member when you sign up).
