Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food | [Lysa TerKeurst]

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.

    "Finally, we're at the heart of it. Excellent book"

    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!!!!

    "Best diet guide I have ever read"

    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!!!

    "Great listen for all christian women !"

    Over weight or not most of us struggle with some kind of vice or crutch. This is a great book to help us start a journey to get closer to God, while at the same time breaking these habbits. The things the author has gone are heart breaking and yet she learns how to find the good that has come from her struggles. Definately a book i will listen too over and over.

    "Just another blah diet book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    dig in more into the psychology of it all and blend with the spiritual.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jill Brennan’s performances?

    no, her voice is too girly, child like
