Craving isn’t a bad thing—we were made to consume food, but food was never meant to consume us. And this two-book and DVD set is set to teach you one big word—one that you can go to and print it off and tape it to the refrigerator—and the word is Empowered. And Ms. Terkeurst will teach you how to break the diet chain. Ms. Terkeurst says right up front that she is not a nutrition expert and she has never craved a carrot stick. But nevertheless she has learned how to develop the spiritual empowerment to say no to comfort food and yes to God.

The DVD is a six-week study designed for either one or two hours a week (used as a group study). The participant’s guide includes questions for the participant to answer both individually and as a group. There are also study suggestions and questions for you to do on your own each day of the week, either a Bible reading, or reading the chapter of the main MADE TO CRAVE book.

Ms. Terkeurst is a real person, with real cravings, and she uses a conversational tone both in the book and in the DVD to teach us about both God and about breaking that link between us and food.

Used as a set, MADE TO CRAVE is an ideal small group study for women to break the chain of food. This is not the latest dieting plan, or how to count calories guide. This is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose (exercise, counting calories, or whatever)—a book and Bible study to help you find the “want to” in making healthy lifestyle changes.

MADE TO CRAVE will help you make lasting changes. Not so you’ll be skinny, but so you’ll feel peace with who you are as a whole. If you are looking to become Empowered and motivated to make a change, then MADE TO CRAVE will help you use your spiritual connection to help you.
Available individually as so: Book: $14.99. 220 pages. Participants Guide: $9.99. 160 pages. DVD $29.99. Approximately 145 minutes.

About the book: Just because a woman finally fits into her skinny jeans doesn't mean she's won her battle with food. Too often, women overlook the spiritual component to their physical struggle with healthy eating. Made to Crave taps into the desires God gave you to consume food without letting food consume you.

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. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the "want to" in making healthy lifestyle choices. 224 pages. Companion Bible study DVD set also available.
