Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author of Uninvited and The Best Yes, Lysa TerKeurst brings you 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.

Other products in the Made to Crave family include the Made to Crave devotional, video study, and participant’s guide, and Made to Crave for Young Women, all available now.

Absolute transparency & truth based in God's WORD

So appeeciate the heart and honesty in this book. I am encouraged and challenged to make my food choices in the light of God's word, as I desire to honor his temple (my body). The narrator is very enjoyable, I highly recommend this audiobook!

Whether we're on the path of victory or defeat, is determined by the very next choice we make. Not the choices from yesterday. Not the choices five minutes ago. The next choice. Our very next choice. May it be that of an overcomer, an overcomer made to crave God alone!

Lots of Food For Thought (Pardon the pun)

A bit of a different approach to weight management. Certainly appropriate for individuals who recognize the Lord's presence in their life. Probably worth a second listen if I can get past the narrators annoying tone. She's probably better suited for reading children's books. She would give the narrator of Fifty Shades of Gray a run for her money; another lousy narrator.

Great Book...not so great voice

I'm very excited to have found this book. I am going to be facilitating a women's small group around Made to Crave with the DVD and participants guides. I can't wait to get started. I'm so encouraged that the main goal is to increase my dependence on and intimacy with a God.
My only criticism is the high pitched inflections in Jill's voice, especially when asking a question. After a while it became annoying. I would compare it to the over animated voice inflections of amusement park staff. It gets sort of tiring after a while. This is just my personal preference.
I would recommended this book to anyone who has tried it all to get control over their unhealthy eating. It's not so much about the scale as it is my heart.

Great insights

This book provides great insight put into messages that are specific & clear. It encourages dependence, trust & hope in God in a deeper way. You will begin to see & treat yourself & body as the temple it is. This book is great read/listened to/studied alone or with a team.or group.

Buy the book instead

ABSOLUTELY WORST performance by a reader I've ever heard. I wouldn't have continued listening had it not been for the content. Annoying...

eye opening

This has been my companion along with the Bible on my journey to overcoming destructive eating patterns. I whole heartedly recommend this to anyone who wants a complete transformation...starting with the spirit and the heart. The body will follow.

Focus on the Words and Message, Not the Narrator

Where does Made to Crave rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is basically great book. I will listen to it again in spite of the annoying narration. Lysa really hit home in several areas for me and I don't necessarily have issues with food. I think the information can easily translate to any area of your life where something holds power over you. I am, however, very disappointed that this book was advertised as an unabridged version. Throughout the book an appendix is referred to that contains many of the scriptures quoted in the book and it was not included.

What did you like best about this story?

It's relatable and real.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jill Brennan?

I will listen to this book again but I will try not to buy another narrated by Jill. Her sing song voice sounded like a cartoon character and drained the power of some of the message for me.
