We all need a spiritual healthcheck from time to time. These 16 devotions will help you to see where and how to grow in faith and joy.

This book will: help you to diagnose how you’re (honestly) doing in your faith; give you the “vitamins” you need—God’s ways of helping you to thrive; and point you to the one who enables you to really grow—the Holy Spirit.

Give yourself a spiritual healthcheck and ask for God's help to make you more like Christ.

Useful at any time of year, particularly in January as you look for a positive way to start the year ahead.

Dave Furman

Senior Pastor of Redeemer Church Dubai; author of Being There

How are you doing spiritually? That's not an easy question to consider, but it might be the most important question each of us ought to answer. Spiritual Healthcheck is a help to Christians to evaluate our spiritual health and get a proper reading on the pulse of our spiritual hearts. This book is so helpful that I'm already thinking about ways to get all the members in our church to read it!

Courtney Reissig

Author of Glory in the Ordinary and The Accidental Feminist

Carl Laferton has provided a gift to the church in encouraging believers to see how God is working and providing hope for change. Like many believers, I have often wondered if I am growing as a Christian. The daily pressures of life, coupled with my own sin, can make it difficult to see the work that God is doing. "Spiritual Healthcheck" is a needed tool designed to help believers diagnose and treat their own spiritual health. Great to read with a friend or read it on your own.

Tim Lane

President, Institute for Pastoral Care; author of Living Without Worry

Carl Laferton has provided a way for you to check the health of your soul and see what you need to be spiritually healthy. The strength of the book is the accessible, interactive, concise format. Read it for yourself and give plenty of copies to your friends and family.

Customer reviews


“Great resource for all believers”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

So far I have only read chapters, one, and two, but those two small chapters were full of blessings and new outlook’s into our faith. I have the privilege of teaching 16 men this booklet over the next two months, and pray that everyone will grow in their walk after receiving this booklet.


“Ideal for individual or group study.”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I am finding this book to be very helpful in stirring my faith afresh. It offers 16 short and easy to read chapters on your spiritual health. Ideal for individual or group study.


“Really got me thinking”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

This slim book is packed full of probing questions and spiritual challenges. I have nearly finished and will be starting back at the beginning as soon as I do as I feel there are more layers to find.



(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I had ordered a book and after some time was asked to review it. I hadn’t received it and told them this, without question they said it must have got lost in the post and sent me a replacement. Great service. The book was Spiritual Checkup and I have found it to be a marvellous study resource and would recommend it to anyone.


“Powerful in a small packet!”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

Great resource with questions that cause you to take a second look at what’s really going on. Using with my prayer partner for Lent - focusing our prayers and support for each other. Encouraging, realistic and achievable approach.


“Fantastic for small groups”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I purchased 6 copies of this book for the leaders to re commence our Ladies breakfast and as this is now over Zoom, due to the pandemic. It is an ideal short study for each month of the year. It is helpful because it is a great devotional that focuses on our Spiritual Health! Each chapter has a different topic relevant to new believers and mature Christians.


“A very useful reminder”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I read a chapter a day as part of my daily quiet time at the start of 2021. It was thought provoking, helpful and forced me to reflect and respond to some of the most basic teaching of the bible. Recommended for anyone who is looking for a challenging start to the day / year.


“Highly recommend.”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

Found it challenging. That was what I needed. Brought me back fresh to jesus and what he did for me at the cross.


“Very challenging”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

We are studying the book as a home group and are finding it very challenging. We thought we were doing OK but the searchlight of the questions shows us how much further we have to go.


“Inspiring and practical”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

This little book is a really helpful resource that looks at our personal spiritual health in a fresh, inspiring and practical way. The structure lends itself to a personal devotional time or use in a small group. I found the short and to-the-point commentary really helpfully as it took familiar passages and themes but opened up a new dimension for me. It came recommended to me and I am very happy to recommend it on!
