    This is a companion to the book "Made to Crave," which I have actually not read. The 21 days of devotionals are short but meaty and helpful. Though I do not have a food struggle that matches that of the author, I think her advice and the biblical precepts she includes here apply to whatever a person may struggling with that vies for the place that only God can fill, the throne on which only He should sit, the longing that only He can meet.

We are made to crave God, not food; that's the bottom line. We are made to crave God, not acceptance. Not money. Not the perfect career or kids or retirement package or whatever it is we work toward so it will complete us. Not the things that fill our time and provide our escape. Absolute victory ... daily sacrificial choices that lead to lifestyle changes ... replacing the lies in our head with God's truths ... believing what God says about us. These are topics worth thinking about and believing in and putting into practice.

    I did not finish this book, I stopped at day 4 or 18%. On day four it was mentioned that 'The object that enticed Eve might have been an apple" I stopped reading there because anyone who seriously study the Bible knows that this is wrong teaching. I could go no further. I am sorry because the topic of the book appears to be a good one but the content is more about food than anything else. I pray that God will bless the author but I could not give the book more than one star because I could not co I did not finish this book, I stopped at day 4 or 18%.

    Downloaded as a free iBook. I thought it had a few good insights (a reminder that we can trust God for self-control as evidence of the Spirit's work in our lives) but in some ways a little light.

    This book is really inspiring and helps to pinpoint the source of cravings you are having trouble saying no to. I found myself highlighting a lot and plan to re-read several sections.

    "Life as a Christ follower will always be a learning process of depending less on our own strength and more on God's power." Unfortunately, this book was not nearly as helpful as I was hoping it would be. There were nuggets of truth inside of it that really resonated, but they were tucked inside prose and sentiments that felt cliched and painfully worn out. The things that were helpful: - I know I won't be happy after the sugar high disappears. I'll simply be disappointed and/or craving more. - I s "Life as a Christ follower will always be a learning process of depending less on our own strength and more on God's power." Unfortunately, this book was not nearly as helpful as I was hoping it would be. There were nuggets of truth inside of it that really resonated, but they were tucked inside prose and sentiments that felt cliched and painfully worn out. The things that were helpful: - I know I won't be happy after the sugar high disappears. I'll simply be disappointed and/or craving more. - I self-medicate with food. - Adultery, alcoholism, and binge eating are all symptoms of a hungry soul. Sometimes I need a reminder that my binge eating is a serious sign that there is something lacking inside of me (goes back to the self-medicating). But those truths weren't really enough to help me past the negative things: - The cheese factor. I can't tell you how badly I want to roll my eyes every time someone tells me that I can be a "victorious child of God." Whether it's truth or not, it just sounds hollow. - An excess of exclamation points. See above. - Sometimes the illustrations she was drawing were just too thin. Not everything can be stretched to be about food. - Overeating and bingeing point to a problem with gluttony. But what of the problems with obsession on the other side of the fence? Obsession with counting calories, planning things out, exercise. Though they are less often focused on in our society, they are equally problematic. If you're looking for something deep, this isn't the book for you.

    I review books on my blog Rachel's Reading. For more like this check it out! I started this when I started a bunch of books about Christian weight loss including the book this was supposed to accompany, "Made to Crave". I wasn't a huge fan of "Made to Crave" and I actually DNFed it, but was working through this in the YouVersion Bible app. I enjoyed this, although I really disagree with and dislike the idea that we must only eat carrot sticks and not indulge in the sweet stuff.

I'm a huge fan of Intermittent Fasting, which has helped me lose weight and keep it off, and the idea behind this seems to solely be to deny, and to do it for God, rather than to Delay. This devotional was less so, and able to work with the way that has changed how I eat, however, just be prepared when you work your way through this, that it is focused a lot on solely denying.

    I have been reading this book on and off for the last month. It's a great "thought for the day" or short devotion to start off your day. As someone who battles food cravings (especially junk food) all of the time, it was a great way to set my focus for my workout and my eating for the day. I would not say that these devotions brought great spiritual awakenings, I think you need a deeper type of Bible study if that is what you seek, but just bringing awareness of the cravings was a great insight I have been reading this book on and off for the last month.

    A wonderful addition to any Christian woman's bookshelf, especially if she's trying to break a certain eating habit. I loved having this 21-day devotional, which reminds me to treat your body right for more reasons than just one. Creating balance in your life with food will create balance in other areas of your life too, even your spiritual life.

    I got this free ebook from amazon and did not realize what it was about. It did not take long to realize this was clearly written to overweight women, but I found the author's insights and examples applicable to anyone. Who among us has not had to battle the temptation of the mighty cheetos or resist the siren song of the Oreo? Spend the half hour to read it.

    This was a very short e-book, and I enjoyed it very much. It focused on why God gives us cravings and how to use your relationship with him to help you through times when you crave food. It is meant to be read as a 21-day devotional, but I read it through in one sitting because I found it so helpful. I will probably read it again, slowly, to benefit even more.

    This is a wonderful book for anyone who has an issue with food or other things that take hold of your life. I'm a foodie, so I was totally able to relate to what the author was saying. I definitely need to crave the word of God, a more intense prayer life, etc. This books gives positive reinforcement to why you shouldn't give way to your physical cravings. I would highly recommend it. This is a wonderful book for anyone who has an issue with food or other things that take hold of your life.

    This was a 21 day devotional designed to go along with the Made to Crave book. I don't have the book but I still got a lot out of this devotional. The author talks about changing our cravings from food to God. She supports her thoughts with Scripture. I enjoyed this read and I will probably purchase the book at some point! This book is from my personal collection. This was a 21 day devotional designed to go along with the Made to Crave book. I don't have the book but I still got a lot out of this devotional.

    I started reading this book to Keep my mind off of smoking when I put them down cold turkey. Because of this book I was able to stay smoke free and it got me through the rough spots. This book is geared towards food, but could work for any addiction. It made me realize a lot of things! An AWESOME read!!!!

    Lysa TerKeurst takes readers through her journey to long term weight loss. Hers is not a diet plan but a decision to make a craving switch. She insists we are made to crave, yet that craving is not to be directed to food. It should be directed toward God. I'd have to judge the message as effective. Reading it has already led me to change many of my eating habits. Lysa TerKeurst takes readers through her journey to long term weight loss.

    Blah. I wasn't fond of it at all. I'm sorry, but eating healthy and forming better habits for yourself doesn't equal being closer to God. Yes, of course God's strength is needed in any good dieting plan, but I don't think we can say: eat better to strengthen your Christian walk. Blah. I wasn't fond of it at all.

    for me, it's actually a two and a half stars, but this shorter version is decent enough to recommend,so I bumped rating up to three stars. it's kind of a diet journal with nice religious verses. my personal rating is kind of blah with neat verses. for me, it's actually a two and a half stars, but this shorter version is decent enough to recommend,so I bumped rating up to three stars. it's kind of a diet journal with nice religious verses. my personal rating is kind of blah with neat verses.

    A short devotional with readings from a longer book, Made to Crave. The short devotions were good, but I think I need the longer book to really benefit. The thesis is that those of us who overeat and crave food are misdirecting our craving for God into a craving for food.

    At first I kind-of thought she was mis-applying scripture. But I realized most of the passages she used could be applied to most of the struggles in our lives and for plenty of us, turning to food rather than God is a struggle.

    An excellent book of 21 conversationally-written devotionals with corresponding Bible passages to accompany the book, Made to Crave. These can be applied not just to craving food (overeating) but to many aspects of life.

    A wonderful book showing how we are made to crave something and if not God, then our cravings move to money, success, food, recognition, etc. Her thoughts are concise and Biblical references are referred to throughout.
