As I Sit Here Eating…

I’m in the process of planning the next online Bible study, Made to Crave.

Ok, I’m going to be totally honest. And I’m kind of embarrassed to tell you.  But I’ve learned that I can be truthful with you even when I want to hang my head in shame.

As I sit here eating Christmas cookies that I don’t need, I’m planning our next online Bible study, Made to Crave,

Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food. 

Oh and I’m not only planning the study, but I’m leading it too. Aren’t you in good hands?

I’m being silly of course, but the truth is, this is an area of struggle for me.  And I know it’s an area of struggle for many women. And not just food necessarily, but satisfying desires with anything except God. Turning to anything when you are stressed, sad, busy, crazy, hopeless,celebrating etc. and kind of keeping God as a plan B.

As I sit here reading and planning though, I’m filled with hope and excitement. Hope because God is so great, good, and capable. And excitement because I get to do Made to Crave with the most awesome online Bible study in the world!

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you tired of being stuck?
  • Are you ready to break the cycle of up down up down numbers on the scale?
  • Are you ready to not only set goals but reach your goals?
  • Do you want to get healthy?
  • Would you like to feel good about yourself?
  • Do you feel like you could never change?
  • Are you ready to really truly rely on God?

If you answered yes to any of these (or all of them in my case), then Made to Crave is for you! And this is your invitation to join us!

I know I need this, and I am so ready. And here’s another confession, I’ve done Made to Crave twice before. And it really helped me take my focus off of my thoughts and put them on God’s. This alone helped me focus on taking care of me, God’s child. And that’s important.  This past year I’ve slipped some. Well more than some. But I’m not giving up and I’m ready to do this again. Hopefully this time with you!

What do you crave?

Think about it.

When you are stressed, what do you crave?

When you are sad, what do you crave?

When you are happy, what do you crave?

When you are tempted, what do you crave?

When you are exhausted, what do you crave?

When you need a “fix”…what do you crave?

There are many things you may have answered. But if they are things that can be obtained on this earth, then they are only temporary and won’t last. Oh how I know this.

Made to Crave is about craving God and not food (or whatever you answered to the questions above).

Are you ready to make a change in your life?  Would you like to be a part of a loving, caring community where you will have the support and Bible study you need to succeed?  Join us for Made to Crave, beginning January 19, 2014.

So, back to the question at the top.  What do you crave?

Preparing for Made to Crave

I know that the Made to Crave Online Bible Study is still a month away, but here at Proverbs 31 Ministries, we are already preparing. And wow, are we excited!

There is so much that goes into the making and implementing of a Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study.

Our design team has been creating graphics for our website, Facebook, and our new product a M2C (Made to Crave) journal. (available next week)

Our conference call team has been working on an entirely new format for our call series. Interactive workshops titled Made to Crave Monday Mornings designed to guarantee success. Featuring 6 sessions (calls), 1 webinar, the M2C journal, and access to a private Facebook group for community support. (available next week)

Our production team has begun filming a few videos to accompany the study. This is one of my favorite things to do! Here are a few shots taken during the filming.

MTC filming me and Nicki

MTC filming w Lysa 2MTC filming w Lysa 1We had a great time “on the set” hahaha which is really Nicki’s kitchen, the P31 kitchen, and Lysa’s office! At one point (2nd picture) Lysa’s message was so captivating, I forgot we were filming. I was ready to take notes! So good. I can’t wait for you to see them!  The first video will go live January 1, 2014.

Our entire OBS team has also begun praying. We are praying for you and all the ladies who will sign up for this online Bible study. We think God is going to truly work His transformation power during Made to Crave.

We want to invite you to begin preparing as well. Prepare your heart. Pray for Lysa TerKeurst, author of Made to Crave. Pray for the leaders of  the MTC study and the P31 OBS team. Pray for yourself and all of the other ladies who will be on this journey with you. It’s never to early to begin praying.

And while we are preparing, why not also do some inviting. Do you know anyone who you could invite to join us?  Please invite them! We want God’s girls to be free from craving anything except Him!

Will you be joining the Made to Crave OBS? If so, introduce yourself. Tell us your name, where you are from, and what you hope to gain (or lose) as a result of Made to Crave. I’ll go first~

My name is Melissa and I live in Charlotte, NC. I hope to gain a deeper relationship with God where I do literally crave Him. I hope to gain lots of new friends to join me on this journey, which I’m expecting to not be easy. Just keepin’ it real y’all. I also hope to gain healthy habits for life. I hope to lose weight and this yo-yo relationship I’ve had with food for most of my life.  I’m very thankful for this Made to Crave study and even more thankful for you who are doing it with me! Merry Christmas to all my MTC OBS friends!
