Released just this month, Made to Crave, is already on the New York Times Bestseller list. Lysa and her family attend Elevation here in Charlotte and we could not be more proud of her.
The book is about learning to satisfy your deepest desire with God, not food. While this book does give some doctor guided, practical guidelines for healthy eating, exercise and weight loss, the main focus is on replacing your craving for food with your craving for God, not necessarily on weight loss.
The book deals with what happens when we, instead of consuming food, become consumed by food. We then to equate our weight with our worth. Consequently, we often allow weight loss to bring us joy and satisfaction when our true ultimate worth must come from God.
Lysa's book is not new fad diet. It is a book that will help you change not only the way you think about food and weight loss, but more importantly your worth in the site of God which has absolutely nothing to do with your outer appearance. The book is full of scripture as well as practical steps that will help you re-train your mind and body to crave the living God, not food.
Over the next few weeks, Lysa will be doing a live Made to Crave web-cast every Monday night at 8 pm. If you missed it last night, you can watch the replay today at noon, 3, 8 and 10 pm EST on the Made to Crave site (my husband was a guest last night :)).
Today I am giving away a small group study set that includes a DVD with 6 video session teachings from Lysa, one copy of the book, and one participant's guide. Simply leave your name in the comments section ONE time :). We will close the comments sometime on Thursday and randomly select a winner. If you don't win, you can still purchase your own copy of the book at Amazon as well as bookstores everywhere.
