A Joy-full Season

Classic First Place 4 Health Bible study

When most people think of the holidays, fitness and healthy eating are not the first things that come to mind. But celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year with family and friends can be fun, delicious and healthy! A Joy-Full Season is a six-week devotional that will inspire you to eat right and stay active through the winter holidays.

Leader Resource is also available for this study.

Healthy Holiday Living

Classic First Place 4 Health Bible study 

The Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season can be filled with social events, shopping excursions and other activities that make it challenging to stick with your weight loss and fitness goals.  During such times, maintaining healthy eating habits and an exercise regimen can seem like a daunting task.  As the pressures and stresses of the season add up, you may be tempted to push your goals to the back burner and tell yourself that you will get back to them after the holidays are over.  But that’s not how a lifestyle plan works!

Healthy Holiday Living, written by First Place 4 Health members who understand the unique challenges of the season, is a six-week devotional study that can provide order to you during this hectic time.  Each daily reading will offer you encouragement to fight the temptations you might face and journaling questions to help you stay on track in the four core areas of life.  You will also find six weeks of Live It Trackers, holiday survival tips, and special menus for Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.  The holidays don’t have to be a time of regret.  Instead, rejoicing and thankfulness can be on the menu!

This is a 6 week study and does not include a music CD.

Balanced Living

Have you ever ridden in a vehicle when the wheels were out of balance? The car will begin to vibrate at around 50 miles per hour, and this vibration will increase in intensity as you accelerate. Pretty soon, you will feel the vibration in the steering wheel, seats and floorboards, and instead of the tires spinning smoothly, they will literally “bounce” down the road. It’s a bumpy and uncomfortable ride, and the life of the tires, ball bearings, shock absorbers and other components will be much shorter than if the tires had been kept in perfect balance. Your life can get in the same shape as unbalanced wheels.

This Classic First Place 4 Health Bible study contains 12 weeks of daily studies to help you put Christ in first place.

A Leader Resource is available to use with the Classic Member Materials or the new My Place Member Kit.

What Is a Virtual Group?

A virtual group meets online weekly for the purposes of encouraging and holding each other accountable. The virtual group follows the standard First Place for Health meeting format.

Each week we meet for seventy-five minutes. The first fifteen minutes, we greet each other, share a God sighting and recite our scripture memory verse. After the first fifteen minutes we open in prayer, review the prior week’s challenge, spend time on a Wellness Topic and then discuss the bible study. Your leader will randomly pair you with a group member to serve as prayer partners each week. Prayer partners exchange prayer requests after the meeting via text, email or telephone.

Virtual meetings require a web cam. Some web cams are built into your device (laptop, tablet or smart phone). Desktop computer may need a web cam. Consider purchasing one starting at $25 online or in the electronics section of your local retailer. The web conferencing is easy to set up. The first time you use the software, you will download a free application ( for your device.

During our first meeting, your leader will give everyone the opportunity to connect and verify they can hear and see everyone. You have the ability to mute yourself during the meetings.

Logistically: weighing in is done virtually. Several hours prior to the meeting, you will send an image of your scale reading to your leader and an image of your Live It tracker. Your leader will go into more detail during the first meeting. Weights and Live It trackers are confidential.

Group size limited to ten participants, developing close connections as you journey to wellness together.  Virtual meeting via video conferencing using your PC, Mac, iOS or Android device.
