If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure

Life can be hard . . . but food, faith, and fun are three amazing gifts from God to satisfy and refresh us every day. Yet all too often, we focus primarily on what we can not do, and what we should not eat—which leaves us feeling deprived and depressed. Instead of being energized by following Christ, we waste our days feeling bored and burnt-out on our faith, while battling the guilt that comes from craving the food that we love. In If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure, best-selling author and speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd encourages you to embark on a new adventure with faith and food. She reveals the food coaching tips that enabled her to lose over 50 pounds and keep it off, and shares fun recipes in celebration of the healthy, delicious food our God created for us to enjoy. It’s time to let go of guilt, grab hold of grace, and recapture the life God craves for us to live! “Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” (Psalm 34:8)

Cafe Lily's Review:

This book is an excellent balance of natural, practical and spiritual advice.  I really liked that Sheri included interesting recipes, along with scriptures and points to meditate on.  This isn't a "how to" in weight loss, nor is it about counting calories, exercise or dieting per say.  It is more about keeping our focus on God and taking control of natural cravings, while satisfying the cravings of our soul. Each chapter addresses a particular craving such as sweet, salty, spicy, rich, and so on.  Each chapter also includes a Power up with Prayer devotion and New Life Recipes.  The book is easy to read and conversational in tone - it felt like sitting down with an old friend over coffee.  

I received a free copy of the book from Tyndale House in exchange for a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
