If You Have A Craving, I Have A Cure: Experience Food, Faith, and Fulfillment a Whole New Way by Sheri Rose Shepherd

If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure: Experience Food, Faith, and Fulfillment a Whole New Way by Sheri Rose Shepherd


A fresh encounter with three amazing gifts from God - food, faith, and fun!

Do you find yourself constantly thinking about what you should not eat, or the things you cannot do?  We've all been there, and it leaves us feeling deprived and depressed.  Instead of being energized by following Christ, we waste our days feeling bored and burned-out on our faith, while battling the guilt that comes from craving food and other things we enjoy.

In If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure, bestselling author and speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd encourages you to embark on a new adventure with faith and food.  She reveals the coaching tips that enabled her to lose over fifty pounds and keep them off,  shares specific alternatives to common cravings, and offers fun recipes (for food and for life) in celebration of the healthy meals and activities 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 you to live!

Taste and see that the Lord is good.  Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! ~ Psalm 34:8

I love books that draw me in the instant I read the first line.  This book is one of those.  From the very first moment that I read the title of this book, I was captivated. I'm always searching for books that books that will help me with daily life and struggles; and what better than a book that will guide you in cooking healthy with more than 100 recipes that are divided into categories of what you crave, along with Biblical verses to encourage you daily.  

Sheri Rose Shepherd not only encourages the reader to eat healthier, but also to exercise, hydrate the body and soul, eliminate excess in life (pray so that God will reveal to you what you should let go of), and to power up with PRAYER. 

I guarantee that you will enjoy this book as much as I did....specially because there are so many wonderful recipes to try (I have yet to try). One of my favorite tips she offered were to write notes to Jesus and to put post- it notes on a mirror as a reminder to become healthier.
