  • 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 Review:

    This was a light easy book to read and did not take a lot of time. It is not deeply spiritual like I expected. It is also not a diet plan. It is filled with interesting recipes that follow each chapter. The chapters are divided by cravings for example something sweet. There are a few bible verses and an excerpt from her life in each chapter. I was hoping for something deeper. There are nuggets of gold though. The recipes are numerous following each chapter. There is also a code or link to get more information. The recipes are healthier versions of favorites and new recipes. Recommended.
