Tyndale has again given me the privilege of reviewing one of their latest books. “If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure”, by author Sheri Rose Shepherd. She is also the bestselling author of the series “His Princess”. She has also spoken at Women of Joy and Extraordinary Women events.
“If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure” is beautifully written. Sheri takes a physical craving and tames it with a spiritual cure. She addresses each craving with scripture followed by a “Food Truth”, recipes to satisfy each need, and ending with a “Taste of Truth”. Some of my favorite “Food Truths” are:
Chapter One: Craving For More Energy
Food Truth: “No food…is as satisfying as the energy to enjoy life.”
Chapter Two: Craving Rest and Relaxation
Food Truth: “No food…is more delicious than the peace that comes from resting in the Lord.”
Chapter Three: Craving Something Different
Food Truth: “No food… will ever fill us up more then doing God’s will.”
This book is an easy read with yummy recipes. There is also a chapter about food to satisfy your children with such recipes as Fruit Pop Pops, Healthy Chili Cheese Fries, and Pizza Night. I am looking forward to trying some of these recipes!
