Overview

What do you crave to make you happy?

… every day is filled with things we want and crave. Things that will make us feel good at least for a moment. But what happens when that moment is gone and the need returns?

There’s nothing wrong with wanting certain things, but God didn’t create us to rely on those things to make us happy. He created us to crave Him, and a happiness that lasts.

In this teen adaptation of the bestselling Made to Crave, the deep emotional, physical, and material cravings you face are explored—desires that can turn into spending too much, over- or under-eating, needing a boyfriend, or more.

Through real-life stories and support from people who have been where you are, you will also discover how to truly crave God and the love and comfort He wants us to have, and how craving heavenly things can make the earthly cravings easier to overcome.

You were made to crave more than this world has to offer.

I admit it. I'm not one to follow the trends. If anything, I'm the one standing on the sidelines, smiling to myself. Just because it's popular doesn't mean I have to buy/read/eat/sing/whatever it. That's why when Lysa TerKeurst's MADE TO CRAVE (Zondervan, 2011) debuted and hit all kinds of best-seller lists, I waited. "It's probably not all that good." "The author has a huge network." "Gotta be a combination of savvy marketing and the right book at the right time." Or maybe it's biblical, contemporary, life-shaping, fresh, and poignant --like its younger sister. Today's review covers the YA version of MADE TO CRAVE, written with best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn. As the mother of young adults and as someone who writes for them (often through the pages of SUSIE Magazine), I try to stay in touch with YA literature. I rarely see anything as well-written, targeted, focused, and practical as MADE TO CRAVE FOR YOUNG WOMEN: SATISFYING YOUR DEEPEST DESIRES WITH GOD. Although the original book addresses the food cravings many of us battle, this version speaks to the physical, emotional, and material cravings that grip young lives in huge ways. Topics range from body image to inappropriate means of seeking approval to tough issues like promiscuity and alcohol abuse. Neither author is afraid of stark statistics or the kind of transparent sharing that breaks down walls. The book moves forward with just the right blend of biblical truth, personal anecdote, and directed challenge. Lysa and Shaunti are not finger-pointing church ladies but big sisters coming alongside to offer hope and help. The practical steps they suggest include directed journaling, Scripture memory suggestions, and wholesome activities that will help readers retrain their minds and reshape their hearts. I doubt I'll ever leap onto the next trendy bandwagon, literary or otherwise. But a book that says more than, "Just stop it" in its effort to help young adults recognize their cravings as idolatry? That's a trend to follow. Right away.
