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

Experience food, faith & fulfillment a whole new way. Sheri Rose Shepherd is bestselling author of the His Princess series. Contains recipe index of 100+ recipes inside!
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him!
Psalm 34:8
Do you find yourself constantly thinking about what you sould 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!
