There is power in the female conversation. Tap into a woman’s raw struggle, breathe hope into her hopelessness, and she will tell everyone in her sphere of influence.

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food (Zondervan) by Lysa TerKeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, made several national bestseller lists this month: the New York Times bestseller list for three consecutive weeks, hitting #7 on the paperback Advice list for the week of February 6, 2011; the USA Today bestseller list at #136; and #9 on the ECPA paperback bestseller list for the month of February.

Promotions for Made to Crave include the Craving God Challenge (a weekly email devotional centered on the book), a national blog tour, major radio promotion on the KLOVE radio network and KSBJ-FM, as well as a national publicity campaign. TerKeurst is also leading live webcasts every Monday for six weeks, ending on February 14, at The webcasts are averaging more than 23,000 streams each week.

“There is power in the female conversation,” says TerKeurst. “Tap into a woman’s raw struggle, breathe hope into her hopelessness, and she will tell everyone in her sphere of influence.”

Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is that people were made to crave. Craving isn’t a bad thing. But we must realize that God created us to crave him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction.

“We are not surprised, but yet we are overjoyed, at the response from women all across the country,” says Don Gates, VP of Marketing, Zondervan. “Lysa has undoubtedly struck a chord with so many as she powerfully declares, ‘We were made to crave God, not food.’”

The Made to Crave book, the DVD curriculum and the participant’s guides are available at all retail outlets.
