Made to Crave by Lysa Terkuerst

     This is not a book review, although I hope to own the book soon.  This is a shout out to an amazing book which can lead to an amazing life-changing experience written by an amazing Jesus girl - Lysa Terkeurst!  You can find out more about the book here
     If you have ever struggled with your weight, an addiction to food or an addiction to anything, this book will help you turn that addiction over to God.  The premise of the book is that God made us to crave Him and not food (or anything else we put before God).  One of my favorite quotes from Lysa is that we were made to consume food, but food was not made to consume us.
     I have been enjoying Lysa's free webcasts on Monday nights from 7:00 - 7:45 central time.  She has had Dr. Ski Chilton on as a guest for each webcast.  He talks about the importance of fiber in any diet and Omega 3's.  This last Monday she also had Pastor Steven Furtick on the webcast and he gave some amazing insight to the fact that God loves us no matter what we look like and what we do.  He always wants the best for us and is with us every step of the way.
     You can still catch the last 4 webcasts every Monday until February 14th.  These are live and free and can be accessed through the link above and also on There is a DVD book study to go with the main text.  I am really excited to be planning this book study for our church community later this year with the approval of the powers that be. :)
     Check out the book if you can find it - it has now hit the NY Times Bestseller list and is selling out everywhere.  Check out the webcasts if you can as they are very inspirational.  Definitely check out the website link above to learn more about the book and Lysa.
