Book Description: 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)
My Thoughts: I picked up this book because of the title, If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure, and because of my, uhmm, age it seems that lately I have been having cravings for foods that are not healthy.
After reading Sheri Shepherd's book I was impressed with how easy and natural the foods are...it really is just eating foods that are good for you.
Included in this book are recipes doable and quotes to keep you on track. My favorite chapter is chapter 13, Craving Something Sweet. But more than food this is about a relationship with our Savior and not using food in place of our emptiness for God's love.
This is not a Bible Study or a weight loss plan, even though, Sheri did lose 50 pounds, this is about "getting" your spiritual life in order and not using food as a crutch.
