I’ve been putting this off, because I felt like I wasn’t ready. I shared a bit about my weight struggles after I fell off the wagon from doing so well last year. But now, I’m ready. I have to do this. My mental, physical, and spiritual health needs me to do this. I have got to get it together.
I’ve heard great things about this book, and I pray that God will use it to motivate, inspire, and encourage me to do what I need to do to honor my body as the temple of the Holy Spirit, and to help me be healthy for my family..
So, over the coming weeks, myself and a few other bloggers will be hosting an online book club, discussing Made to Crave. We would be honored if you would join us, and you can purchase the book here. (That is an affiliate link, and if you purchase through it, I will receive a small percentage to help offset the cost of this site).
Wondering if you could benefit from this book? Here are some things to think about. Do you rationalize your unhealthy food choices with the following (quoted/adapted from page 13 of the book):
I’m good in every other area.
I make so many sacrifices already.
I need treats as a comfort in this season of life
I just can’t give this up.
The Bible doesn’t specifically say this is wrong
Everyone has their issues.
But despite all the excuses and rationalizations, the truth is that food will never truly satisfy those desires that we have.
Also, there is a website for the book: www.madetocrave.org. There are lots of great resources on that website. If you cannot purchase the book right now, but would still like to participate, there is a 21 day challenge that you can sign up for. This is completely free and you will receive a daily devotional that follows similar principles as discussed in the book.
Either way, I hope you’ll join us, starting next Monday. We will be discussing 2 chapters each week. If you’re a blogger, I invite you to share your thoughts on your blog as well.
