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.

Everything! It opened my eyes to the fact that it's God we need to run to for comfort, for a relationship, for acceptance not food. We shouldn't get our self worth from a scale, compliments, friends, co-workers, or family. We need to go to the source that is God and beleive only the truths He has for us.
1st time. She's captivating.
I never thought of my eating habits as sin nor food as an idol. I was drowning my feelings in food instead of taking them to God in prayer. I pray that I can make this a spiritual journey and lose the weight once and for all!!!
I am now starting on my 2nd time through this book. Lisa's transparency and real thoughts and experiences are so refreshing and easy to relate to. She gives hope to those anyone who struggles with food, and even with any other addiction. The way she weaves it in with the Word and our relationship with the Lord is incredible. For once, someone has honestly addressed this important issue with grace and truth, humor and seriousness. I am forever changed and forever grateful.
I highly recommend it for any of you "Jesus Girls" out there that have issues with your weight and food. I pray that it will set you free as it has done for me. I now know how to search for God when my stomach and head are telling me that I need food to comfort me. I'm taking this journey one day at a time and so far I'm doing great!!!! Thank God I found this book!!!!
I wanted to keep hearing it till the end because based on her own experience Liza was able to pass on profound new insights in eating which never crossed my mind before. I had to get used to the voice of the narrator, which was a bit too rough for me, but the content was so much more worth it!
This book really helped change my perspective about food and idolatry. Now when I'm tempted to emotionally overeat, the Holy Spirit stops me and I'm reminded of the book's principles. So helpful, I'm craving God like never before!
Lysa's book was very self-reflecting, open, and honest. God bless you. I would recommend this to others who are "Jesus Girls" and who struggle with their weight as well.
