Review: Made to Crave: 60 Day Devotional by Lysa TerKeurst

Synopsis: Last year, author Lysa TerKeurst released the book Made to Crave, providing the Biblical answer to why people diet, regain the weight they lose, and continue to find themselves stuck in this vicious cycle. Made to Crave helped thousands of people finally achieve victory in their weight loss journey. But, according to TerKeurst, “We need more than 19 chapters to stay motivated and on track. That’s why I wrote this daily devotional with 60 inspirational entries. There is plenty of new material not in the original book. Rest assured, I also included your favorite nuggets of wisdom from Made to Crave.” Just like the Made to Crave book, this Made to Crave Devotional is not a how-to get healthy book. It is the road to finding the lasting ‘want to’ that extends far beyond the surface issues of weighing less and wanting to wear a smaller clothes size. Says TerKeurst: “There’s a spiritual battle going on. It’s real. And it’s amazing how perfectly the Bible gives us specific ways to find victory with our food struggles. “Even for girls who don’t crave carrots.“ (from the back of the book)

Review: A companion to TerKeurst's Made to Crave book, this is composed of 60 short devotionals. Each is proceeded by a verse and a "Thought of the Day" which often a quote from the book. After a 1-2 pages read, there is a prayer that goes with the theme of the day.
As with the book, I found bits and pieces helpful, but over all, it was mostly fluff and nonsense. Again, nothing blatant or clearly wrong theologically, but there was something off about some her writings. If you found her book helpful, then you will also find this helpful. There was some repetition, but not enough to detract from the devotions. Not my cup of tea, but it will appeal to others, I'm certain.
