Welcome to JoJo’s Corner.
It’s 2014 and most of us are making resolutions to get healthier.
I’m excited to be making smarter choices about getting fit
and something I’m incorporating in my 2014 plan is…

During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives. Welcome to The Daniel Plan. Here’s the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God’s instruction for living. When it comes to getting healthy, two are always better than one. Our research has revealed that people getting healthy together lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone. God never meant for you to go through life alone and that includes the journey to health. Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably—from the inside out.

I am so excited about The Daniel Plan!!!
This book is so informative, so practical and so important!
The information that the authors share about health are really eye opening.
Recently I have made some major food changes that are totally in line with The Daniel Plan and these changes have impacted the way I feel in such a life changing way. By incorporating the changes talked about in this book I have gained more energy, I sleep better at night and I feel great!
I’m excited to see what other changes are ahead by following The Daniel Plan for the next 40 days and I plan to report back on my progress.
If you are looking for a really sensible, faith-based, community powered health plan, check out The Daniel Plan!
