Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn't a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the 'I'll start again Monday' cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn't a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal -- and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the 'want to' in making healthy lifestyle choices.

Thank God, a book that finally understands the hurts that have been buried so far deep down beneath all of these layers of fat. You helped me find and discover the little girl who has been cowering in the corners of my soul for far too long. I can now release her and be the strong healthy adult she deserves to be.
great biblical outlook on discilpine's role in overcoming food issues on one's path to better health. I stuggled with the narrator's voice but got over it after the first 2 chapters.
I am a working mom and wife and don't have much time to read books, so listening to them in the car is my new hobby!
Yes, I would listen again. The author uses Biblical references to explain why we should take care of our bodies and the importance of doing so. Listening to this often will remind me and keep me on the right track. This book should help motivate for all the right reasons.
I got a bit annoyed at the voice of the performer.
I haven't finished this book, but I really like it so far, enough that I also purchased the kindle version for deeper study.
The narrator, however, is awful. She sounds as though she is a kindergarten teacher reading a fairy tale to a class of little kids. Fortunately I have listened to enough audiobooks with less than great narrators so I am still able to continue listening to it, but Jill Brennan, try reading like you are speaking to intelligent adults. Thanks.
I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.
I've done it all Weight Watchers, phone apps, fuel bad, you name it. As the author points out, we don't need a "how to". We all know portion control, the food pyramid, physical representation of ounces. We needed a "want to". And though I have even said myself that it is similar to an addiction though you can't stop eating. I had never truly looked at it as a true addiction, or better defined as a loss of power and a focus, devotion, to food. I can't attempt to explain because I won't do it justice. I am saying that when I framed it in relation to God and my commitment to not allow myself to participate in any addictive behaviors it became very easy to change my entire mindset. I have quit smoking as I realized it was controlling me, I don't go to casinos as I can feel the discomfort of the compulsion coming on and it sickens me. Now understand the role food is playing currently in my life, through this book I am changing the addictive behaviors. Taking on cravings as a cue to prayer is the perfect solution. Thank you so much for this book and it's companion the devotional!!!!
This is a book about more than diet. This book delves into everything we crave that isn't good for us and redirects our attention to God. Lysa TerKeurst teaches the reader to pray through temptation and to learn to be content in the now.
Lysa doesn't pretend to be the perfect role model, nor is she judgmental about the reader's struggles. Her writing reminds me of Beth Moore's bubbly, encouraging way of motivating people to approach God.
The narration was good; Jill Brennan kept the tone light, encouraging, and energetic.
Please read this book before beginning any new diet. Lysa TerKeurst doesn't promote any particular diet because she believes that one size doesn't fit all, but she offers basic guidelines that any Christian could follow to stay motivated and achieve the right goals.
I couldn't make it to the weekly women's bible group that is working through this book together, so i bought on my own. I'm still in the first few chapters, but I am loving it!!!
