Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A study about watching your weight & food issues ... or anything that you crave in life... with a God perspective? Yeah, I was excited about this book.
I really like Lysa TerKeurst's honest style. She makes you feel like you're not alone in your struggles. You don't feel like the odd man out. She just has that way about her in her writing & honesty in her own stories of struggle.
I did this book with the Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study group. I think it made it even better because there were so many ways to connect with others having the same struggles & finding encouragement in each other.
I'm not sure if reading it alone would have had the same impact... but it's definitely a book full of information & reminders of what God wants for us in our lives. Not focus on food - but on Him. To know our weight doesn't define who we are in Him. Wonderful Scripture to cling too when facing temptation.
I will say, I feel like towards the end, the information was becoming repetitive, but I guess when we're talking about issues that we can't fight or shake ourselves, its not bad to hear things over & over again.
