Today, Gary Wilkerson is joined by guest speaker and ministry founder David Bush to talk about how we can balance spiritual disciplines with physical fitness.

This week, Gary Wilkerson talks with a Christian nutritional counselor, Laura Harris Smith, who shares her descent into a deadly medical condition, the way God healed her body and her journey into good health.

Could having healthier life practices, from the food we eat to the relationships we have, be a biblical concept? Gary Wilkerson discusses this topic and offers insights from the Bible and his personal experience to those looking for answers.
