Self-discipline is essential to success in all areas of life. Making the conscious choice to do what is morally right takes a great deal of strength. The source of this strength comes from God.Having learned the hard way that discipline requires training, Dr. Rhonda Harrington Kelley suggests a system of checks and balances for self-control. Noting her personal journey toward spiritual discipline, Kelley offers this thought-provoking, inspirational guide. Through self-motivation and control, the author encourages you to reap the rewards of leading a disciplined life. After years of struggling with her weight and other negative aspects of her life, Kelley concluded that she had the motivation for change but not a sincere desire to gain self-control. Her belief in God's power to bring calm and purpose to some of life's most uncontrollable situations helped change her life.More than just a self-help book, Divine Discipline: How to Develop and Maintain Self-Control offers specific guidelines for making positive lifestyle changes toward personal growth. Kelley provides valuable guidelines for nutrition, fitness, time management, and goal planning that highlight the importance of one's internal resources by employing inner strengths. This second edition provides new information and encouragement for those seeking divine self-control. The biblical quotes come from the New American Standard Bible published by Lockman. Through discipline, introspection, and spiritual belief, Dr. Kelley leads the wayward soul to the bounty of the Holy Spirit.Esther Burroughs provides the foreword.
