Designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of all important health issues including physical, spiritual, mental, and social, it directs them toward making wise choices.
Total Health for High School
From a quote on the back cover of the Choices for a Winning Lifestyle text:
“It is in the context of today’s new epidemics of behavior-related diseases and misery that Susan Boe has had the insight to undertake the writing of a guidebook about what she calls TOTAL HEALTH: CHOICES FOR A WINNING LIFESTYLE. To her, and to me also, total health means that our behavior matters to our health and to our happiness. It means that we are not just bodies, attacked by germs and waiting for medicines. We are body, mind, and spirit, and we cannot be truly healthy or happy unless we follow the laws of God who made us.”
