Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn't a bad thing. 


But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the 'I'll start again Monday' cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn't a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal—and grow closer to God in the process.This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose.

    " It took me six months to read this book. Although I really liked it -- and I want to go back and read parts of it again -- I just couldn't take it in big chunks. I would read a chapter and mull it over for quite a while -- but then often forget what I read. But I think Lysa TerKeurst really got it right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fourpetesake | 2/6/2014

    " Biblically sound and thoughtfully told. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra Haneline | 2/6/2014

    " I did the bible study series along with reading this book. Lysa explains this in such a great way & pulls scriptures out of the Bible that I have never really considered. It's not a book about weight loss, it a book about a spiritual journey & life change. Excellent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/5/2014

    " I am part of an online bible study group with Proverbs31 Ministry and this was a topical book. While I'm not someone that really turns to food for comfort reading this book did show me where I could be better in filling my life with more God and less cravings. It was still a great resource of scripture and I took more away from this study than I had thought I would. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Warrenandsue Jantz | 2/3/2014

    " Good when applied to all areas. Sometimes I wonder why we are so hung up on food in American culture. Not all cultures expect their women to be thin. That's what I didn't like about the book- too much emphaisis on food as a measure of spirituality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 1/31/2014

    " This was one of the most enlightening books I've ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/29/2014

    " This is a great book. Lysa talks to you like you're a friend, sharing with you her experience as God showed her what it means to deny yourself & sacrifice & draw near to Him. She really helps you to learn to deal with emotional eating & to go to God with your issues, instead of food. A lot more than that, too. At first I felt like she was a little overboard with some things, but she clarifies that later on. Good read & i know some of the things she said will stick with me & really help me out in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/19/2014

    " LOVED this book! It really opened my eyes to my issues with food. And that God cares about EVERY aspect of my life ... including what I eat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Bulgin | 1/16/2014

    " This book will continue to remain on my "to read" shelf, as even a second read-through hasn't been enough. I will continue to reread until it gets through my thick skull! Excellent book dealing with food cravings as a spiritual battle as well as a physical one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Rachor | 1/16/2014

    " I don't know what I expected. It is very religious, sometimes overly so. But I like the basic idea. Instead of eating when you know you shouldn't, asking God or whatever higher power you're into for help and guidance. Its not shallow and yes, there are bigger problems out there. But stopping enough to think and pray is a big step to not eating that 3rd cookie. There are some good strategies here for coping with our food obsessed culture and our own lack of willpower. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy Dickison | 12/4/2013

    " LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! TerKeurst totally "gets it" when it comes to cravings ruling your life. So much insight into God's word about food and control issues. One I've read multiple times and bought 10 extra copies to give away!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kacky | 11/27/2013

    " I like the message. However I feel like her thoughts are repeated over and over again, it got old. I do like the scripture verses she quotes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lacie Johnson | 11/10/2013

    " Awesome! Inspiring, motivating, convicting, compelling. I am one good choice away from victory! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dena | 10/8/2013

    " Leading a women's bible study on this right now. Will let you know when it's over :) "

    " Excellent Bible study, will definitly read again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Bellott | 4/26/2012

    " This is such a great book, it gives you a completely different perspective on food and losing weight and what God's word says...Everything permissible but not everything beneficial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deann Doolittle | 3/28/2012

    " Really liked this book. It made me realize that I don't have to go through weight loss and weight issues on my own. Great tips, ideas, stories, and Bible verse to help you on your way. Thanks to my friend Dolores for letting me borrow her book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 2/23/2012

    " This book changed my life!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 1/27/2012

    " I absolutely love this book. I felt many times as though the author was in my head. I highlighted so much of this book and will definitely be revisiting key passages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin Mitchell | 1/11/2012

    " Good message, but she was a little extreme in her own personal methods for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 4/22/2011

    " I found this book fascinating! I had started a "clean eating" challenge around the time I started reading this book, and then I felt that perhaps my challenge was for more than just proving myself to myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 4/20/2011

    " This book made me realize just how out of control I can be with eating and how eating often controls me. I learned alot from it. I am going to read it again and determine some goals, some changes I need to make. With God's help I will crave Him as much as I fill my cravings with food. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 3/8/2011

    " This is a very helpful book - and very challenging. You have to "want to" before it will do you any good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 3/5/2011

    " Excellent! I don't buy too many books, but for this one I had to make an exception. It is one I will re-read, and refer to often.

    Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 3/4/2011

    " Liked this book but I think was wrong timing for me. Maybe will pick up again in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/25/2011

    " In my book, there is just one word: revolutionary. It's a paradigm shift from surface struggles to intimate, healing change. A must for every woman, no matter the size or shape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 2/25/2011

    " Great book! Must read for those (especially women) who have any struggles with eating. It has great take-away advice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jana | 2/22/2011

    " This was the best book about change of attitude towards diets and finding the desire to eating healthier. I loved this thought, "define your week by your obedience not the number on the scale" Great advice. Bought 2 more books and passed out to Morgan and Kori "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/15/2011

    " Awesome book! So full of mental help to get past what is seen on the scales!! Packed full of scriptures to help us to be obedient to Gods word! This book explains that losing weight can be a great spiritual journey! A fabulous read! I have been very encouraged! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 2/12/2011
