Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst

This book is a amazingly easy read that is loaded with good information.  God is interested in every area of our lives--yes, even our eating habits.  Lysa offers practical tips that will ease the unhealthy food cravings and bring us closer to God.  She has battled with her weight and has "walked this walk" herself.  She is not throwing out useless advice in a condescending manner.  She has been there done that.

I found the scriptures she included helpful in other areas of my life.  I found they gave me the help I needed when I was in situations that required more willpower than I had on my own.   Lysa used an illustration regarding her running distance that struck a chord in my own life.  I have found that God gives me more strength than I could possibly have on my own many times.

Overall, I found this book very good and useful plan to keep it as a reference to augment my healthy eating and living plan.  I do recommend this book to anyone that needs encouragement to combat their cravings and to know that God is always there to help us.

I received this book from Litfuse blog tour in exchange for an honest review.
