"Simple Jesus Girl" Makes New York Times Top 10 With Book Made to Crave

Teresa Neumann : Mar 1, 2011  Tim Funk - The Charlotte Observer

"I think so many people picked up 'Made to Crave' ... because they thought it would help them lose weight. What they find while reading it is that it's not a book about losing weight. It's a book about gaining God, no matter what addiction you struggle with."

Lysa Terkeurst(Charlotte, N.C.)—Lysa TerKeurst is a "self-described 'ordinary woman' who has shared the highs and lows of her life in print and online, and has slowly built a national fan club of religious women who see her as someone who understands their daily struggles with everything from parenting to weight loss.

A report in the Charlotte Observer chronicles TerKeurst's amazing literary rise based on her desire to encourage women to say "yes" to Jesus in their daily lives.

Her latest book, Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food has reportedly sold more than 100,000 copies and it has appeared for the fifth straight week on the New York Times' list of the 10 top-selling advice or how-to paperbacks.

Notes the report: Her book "draws on her own battles with weight and counsels readers to do what she finally did: Fill that inner emptiness not with more and more food but with a faith that affirmed her worth and her dependence on God."

"Many women," said TerKeurst, "feel underweight spiritually and overweight physically."

After battling her own weight, TerKeurst currently weighs 141 pounds—a result of dieting and, she says, a realization that "food can only fill our stomachs, it can never fill our souls."
