Last year, author Lysa TerKeurst released the book Made to Crave, providing the Biblical answer to why people diet, regain the weight they lose, and continue to find themselves stuck in this vicious cycle. Made to Crave helped thousands of people finally achieve victory in their weight loss journey. But, according to TerKeurst, “We need more than 19 chapters to stay motivated and on track. That’s why I wrote this daily devotional with 60 inspirational entries. There is plenty of new material not in the original book. Rest assured, I also included your favorite nuggets of wisdom from Made to Crave.” Just like the Made to Crave book, this Made to Crave Devotional is not a how-to get healthy book. It is the road to finding the lasting ‘want to’ that extends far beyond the surface issues of weighing less and wanting to wear a smaller clothes size. Says TerKeurst: “There’s a spiritual battle going on. It’s real. And it’s amazing how perfectly the Bible gives us specific ways to find victory with our food struggles. “Even for girls who don’t crave carrots.“
Provides sixty inspirational entries to encourage a weight-loss journey, focusing on attaining the desire to improve one's life beyond weight loss and nutritional lifestyle into spiritual happiness and acceptance.
In this six-session video study, Lysa TerKeurst helps women discover the missing link between a womanÆs desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen.The reality is, we were made to crave.Craving isnÆt a bad thing.But we must realize God created us to crave so weÆd ultimately always desire more of Him in our lives.Many of us have misplaced that craving towards overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction.For a woman struggling with unhealthy eating habits, Made to Crave will equip her to:ÒBreak the ÔIÆll start again Monday cycleÖ and start feeling good about herself todayÒStop beating herself up over the numbers on the scale and make peace with the body youÆve been givenÒDiscover how your weight loss struggle isnÆt a curse but rather a blessing in the makingÒReplace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering Go-to Scripts that lead to victory.ÒEat healthy without feeling deprivedÒReach your healthy weight goal while growing closer to God through the process.

In this six-session small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst helps women understand how cravings for lasting spiritual satisfaction are often mistaken for cravings for food. According to Lysa, craving isn’t a bad thing. But the challenge is to realize God created us to crave so we’d ultimately desire more of Him in our lives, not more food. Many of us have misplaced that craving, and overindulge in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction.

What are you chasing? We’re all chasing after something, something that we think will make us happy—comfort, success, a bigger house, or someone’s approval. But if we are all honest, it feels like trying to catch the wind. A man after God’s own heart… As David’s life weaves throughout the pages of Scripture, we see he was a man who spent his life chasing after God. Chase explores the events that defined David’s life and the Psalms that flowed out of those experiences. Through David’s example we’ll discover what God really wants from us. The lessons in this study guide are simple yet deep and very interactive, offering Bible study, stories, and projects to dig into Scripture and deeply engage the mind and heart. God has carved out a space in each of us that only He can fill. So whether you are running from God or working your tail off to please Him, David’s journey will challenge your view of God. God is invisible, and yet He is the only thing we can chase that won’t leave us feeling more empty.
