Faithful Steps Book Cover

About the Program

The Faithful Steps Running Program is a 12 week Bible study and training program with a focused goal of building your Faith and Fitness.

The study book is filled with encouraging devotions that illustrate the parallels between an endurance sport and the endurance that Christian faith requires.  The tone is conversational and accessible, and the workout plans, discussion questions, weekly challenges, and Bible verses make it both a practical resource and workbook for individuals and groups.  From advice about shoes, strength training, and Christian music for your workouts, to tips on race etiquette, this book will be useful and inspirational.
