About the Author

Lysa TerKeurst is the New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave and Unglued. She isn't shy about admitting what a mess she can be. But she's been learning God's lessons and sharing them on her blog (www.LysaTerKeurst.com) and in her books. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and writes from her sticky farm table in North Carolina where she lives with her husband, Art, five kids, three dogs, and mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen.

 

 



Shaunti Feldhahn is a popular public speaker, bestselling author and social researcher.  Her eye-opening books, including For Young Women Only: What You Need to Know About How Guys Think, have hit a nerve, selling two million copies in twenty languages. (The latest translation?  Tigrinya.  She didn’t know where that was from, either.) Shaunti’s research is regularly featured in an oddly diverse array of media (picture Focus on the Family one day, Cosmo the next). Shaunti and her husband and two active children reside in Atlanta and enjoy every moment of living at warp speed.

Format: Paperback
Made to Crave for Young Women: Satisfying Your Deepest Desires with God is a book that speaks to women of all ages. I was drawn in by the subtitle of the book, Satisfying Your Deepest Desires with God. I really struggle with this, but I know that is what the Christian life is all about. I read the rest of the book's description, and it seemed like it had some fresh ideas that weren't what is normally covered in a lot of the Christian Living books out there. I did see that it is for Young Women and it seemed like it was aimed at high-school teenagers. I saw that there was also another Made to Crave that is for women, but that one is just all about a woman's struggle with food, eating and weight and how she puts those cravings ahead of God. This Made to Crave for Young Women seemed to cover a lot more areas of struggles besides food that I thought would be more helpful to me.

Once I read it, I was so glad I had decided to give it a try! If you struggle in any other area besides eating, I would recommend this book over the other one because of the wider variety of examples and struggles that the authors cover. Of course, you have to remember that the two authors are speaking mostly to a teen audience, but as I am in my mid-20s and read a lot of young adult books, it did not bother me. It is also written in a way so that anyone can relate to it. Don't we all still deal with the same struggles that we dealt with in high school anyway, in some form or another? I know I do. Sorry for those who are still in high school, but those struggles do not go away, they just keep coming back in different forms.

Format: Paperback
From the press release:

Made to Crave For Young Women is modeled after TerKeurst's bestselling adult book, Made to Crave. In this new edition, the authors expand beyond the food-related focus of the original, and into all the other areas of craving shared by so many teenage girls. The authors acknowledge that the desire to make wrong choices is common and that most of us share such temptations. But, as TerKeurst writes, "Whether we are talking about guys, friends, food, body image, new clothes, or anything else we abuse to try to fill ourselves, nothing in this world can ever fill us like God's portion."

My Thoughts:

The book discusses three types of cravings--physical, material, and emotional. Each section of the book takes one of these cravings and discusses where we can fall into temptation and sin when we have wrong thinking about each subject. At the end of each chapter is a "takeaway" summary of what was discussed in the chapter. Also there is an action plan that encourages girls to keep a journal and challenges them to act on what they have learned in each chapter. Made To Crave for young women encourages girls to fill their lives with a loving Heavenly Father instead of filling their cravings with physical, material or emotional things. Filled with scriptures, encouragement and practical advice Made To Crave For Young Women can be used as a devotional or study group book. I know I will be passing my copy on to my nieces.

This book is a perfect way to bond with your teenage daughter. I bought 2, one for myself and 1 for my daughter and we are going through it together. It's letting her see a side of me she didn't know and allowing for some great teachable moments. At the same time it's letting me see inside of her and see what a lovely, wise, young woman she's becoming. This book has been very eye opening for both of us and has drawn us closer together. I highly recommend it!!!

Format: Paperback
{This book was given to me for free from Zstreet team}

Every single person, man, woman, boy or girl, has a longing on the inside of us. The longing for something more. We have longings to be loved, to feel happy, even if for a moment. Those longings, while natural, will destroy our lives if not handled correctly. We were made to fill those longings with God. Not chocolate chip cookies, or a handsome boyfriend, or those adorable shoes at the store. In this fantastically written book, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lysa TerKeurst show that it is God's plan for us to run to Him instead of to food, material possessions, or even other people. If we run to God, we can experience eternal happiness rather than short-lived enjoyment.
This book was exceedingly better than I could have hoped. This book was perfect for me at this time in my life. I have always seemed to have a problem with self control. This past week, however, I have been trying to walk in more self-control. This book could not have come at a more perfect time. This book has helped me so much, I can't even begin to tell you. Though hard to pick, I think one of my favorite quotes is this one,
"The key, friends, is not to simply follow a rule- it's to be wise about our choices so we rely on God rather than something we crave."

Talk about a perfect quote! Using scripture throughout, this book easily makes the best non-fiction book I have read this year. Overall, I would one-hundred percent recommend this book. It is one of the few books that is COMPLETELY worth your money. I guarantee it.

Sincerely,
Libbi H.
