3) AMAZING Endorsements for “Fit over 50”

Here are just a few of the dozens of amazing endorsements for my newest book: 

  • “This book is a lifestyle tour de force. Whether you’re trying to figure out which diet to follow, what kind of exercise is best for you, whether to lift weights, how to increase flexibility, how to get the most out of sleep, and dozens of similar questions—you now have an authoritative, comprehensive, holistic, and medically sound handbook for your health. The 22 practical ideas are exactly what I needed to know!”
    • Patrick Morley, PhD
    • Executive Chairman, Man in the Mirror, and bestselling author of 21 books, including The Man in the Mirror and The Christian Man
  • “I tend to avoid books that give ‘self-help’ advice—life is too complicated for easy formulas. The more I went through Fit over 50, however, the more I learned. Drawing on the latest research, the authors have assembled a remarkable list of practical suggestions on how to flourish in every way.”
    •  Philip Yancey 
    • Author of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: The Marvel of Bearing God’s Image (with Dr. Paul Brand)
  • “For those who are interested in a fitness book that deals with the total person: physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual, this is a must read. Fit over 50 is filled with research-based and biblically sound practical tips for all who want to live life to the fullest.”
    • Gary D. Chapman, PhD 
    • Author of The 5 Love Languages   
  •  “Wait! Don’t let the title fool you. Fit over 50 is not fiction. This volume is so chock-full of helpful (not to mention up-to-date) advice that I expect it to inform my life for the rest of my days. Walt Larimore and Phillip Bishop manage to keep the cookies on the lower shelf where even we laypeople can reach them. Thoroughly engrossing.”
    • Jerry Jenkins
    • New York Times bestselling author 
  •  “You may have heard the old saying ‘It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.’ In Fit over 50, Walt Larimore and Phil Bishop will show you the best way to have both.
    • Jim Daly
    • President, Focus on the Family
  • “One of the best all-around books I’ve ever seen for those of us over 50 who want to improve our all-around health. I’ll be putting many of these tips to action in my life and suggesting my friends and colleagues get a copy of their own.” 
    • Pat Williams
    • Senior Vice President of the NBA’s Orlando Magic 

4) Last Month’s Events

  • June 30-July 4: On Friday, June 27, we learned that Barb’s Aunt Kitty, her mom’s last surviving sibling, had graduated to glory from cancer to her Creator. Barb will be traveling to Baton Rouge for the funeral and to celebrate this amazing woman’s life and legacy.
  • The rest of the month we were home with no travel nor major events. We enjoyed some rest, relaxation, and recharging. Of course, I’ll be enjoying a great deal of writing time as I’m working of two separate books: (1) Tales of a Country Doctor: Stories of a Young Physician’s Practice in Rural Florida, and (2) Natural Medications for Common Conditions: The Truth About the Most Effective Herbs, Vitamins, and Supplements

5)   Upcoming Events

  • Aug 23: I’ll be attending the International Board of Directors’ meeting for Morning Star Development in Colorado Springs.
  • Sept 3-4: I’ll fly to LA to deliver a series of keynote presentations at the Hospital Christian Fellowship Conference in Laguna Woods California.
