I am on a personal mission to collect Christian workout and/or nutrition books to recommend to my clients. Let me tell you, they are hard to find! I stumbled on my first diamond in the rough by accident: “Made to Crave” by Lysa Terkeurst.
Lysa is a bestselling author (“Made to Crave” making the New York Times best seller list), national speaker and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. I had the pleasure of watching her publically speak at the Women’s Free to Fly Conference in Spring Lake Park last April. I was at the conference volunteering and randomly placed at Terkeurst’s book booth. That’s when I saw it: “Made to Crave” with a catchy subtitle stating, “Satisfying your deepest desires with God, not food.” I quickly picked up the book and almost embraced it with a bear hug I was so thrilled to FINALLY find a book that combined faith and food. God was using Lysa to help me speak truth in love to the people I know who struggle with food cravings. (I have also had this battle a few years ago myself) Some of my favorite main points from the first five chapters will be in the next few blog posts... Stay tuned!
