Made to Crave...

Everybody hold on to your hat.  I bought a book.  Not just any book, but one I have been wanting to check out for quite some time.

I have been on the weight roller coaster for most of my life.  I have made many changes to my life, diet, exercise and yada, yada, yada.  I know you have all heard it a million times.  I promise not to go on THAT rant because honestly, I know you don't want to hear it.  Neither do I. 

I'm a little bitter.

Ok, enough of that.

Lysa Terkeurst, president of Proverbs 31 ministries, has a new book out called  "Made to Crave" and it looks really good.  I haven't started it yet, but I will try to keep you posted.  I liked the title and the description that we should be satisfying our deepest desire with God, not food.


I hope to learn a little about breaking the cycle and to finally start feeling good about myself, to stop worrying about the numbers on the scale, replacing rationalizations that lead to failure with wisdom that leads to victory, and to reach healthy goals and grow closer to God in the process.  Those are the things that Lysa says she wants us to get from this book. 

All I know, is I am ready to stop fighting this battle.  I know that this book is not a cure all.  I know that God is the only way that I can fight this and with Him I know I can do anything. 

So, if you are interested in learning more about Lysa, her website and here to find out more info.  I think you will be blessed.

I plan on giving you weekly updates...that will help keep me accountable as well.
