Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment? The New York Times bestselling release Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. Author Lysa TerKeurst personally understands the battle that women face. In Made to Crave, she will help you:
- Break the cycle of “I’ll start again on Monday,” and feel good about yourself today.
- Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body.
- Replace rationalization that leads to diet failure with wisdom that leads to victory.
- Reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process.
This book is not a how-to manual or the latest, greatest dieting plan. Made to Crave is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose — a book and Bible study to help you find the “want to” in how to make healthy lifestyle changes.

“Lysa has struck a cord that will resonate with women everywhere. Very simply, we were made to crave… and that craving must be met by God alone. Read this book!”
— Karen Kingsbury, America’s No. 1 inspirational novelist
“Made to Crave may possibly be the most important book I’ve ever read on the matter of weight… and I’ve read A LOT! The world will never be at a loss for authors telling us what foods to eat, what foods to avoid, or how to exercise. Yet with all of this knowledge we are unhealthier than ever. Something is missing. And Lysa has tapped into the mystery that has plagued so many of us who battle with the bulge. If you are tired of the endless diet cycle, read Made to Crave. It will change your mind and then it will change your life.”
— Mandisa, Grammy-nominated recording artist
“I love this project! Lysa gets it — she knows me. She understands my struggle — every woman’s struggle. But, in Made to Crave, Lysa does far more than empathize with the struggle; she gives proven practical alternatives for our food cravings. Made to Crave is a grace-filled, God-centered, and girlfriend-like conversation that gets straight to the heart of our food issues. Made to Crave is insightful, honest, encouraging, practical, and accessible. This isn’t a study about becoming a smaller-sized person, but rather helping you become a person who craves Jesus and His truths as the ultimate filler of your heart.”
