Made to Crave~2012, Week 2

***Week 1 Vlog, has not been posted yet. Technical difficulties and life interfered. Will post sometime this week! Thanks for understanding!

With Week 1 of the study behind us, do you still believe that this time will be different?

Hopefully you believe it now more than ever!!  Or even if you aren’t there yet, you at least think that maybe just maybe this time will be different! Wherever you are or however you are feeling, stay committed and let’s get ready to dig into Week 2 of our Made to Crave Online Bible Study!

Quick explanation: I’m not sure what you envisioned the Online Bible Study to be like, but you will not be spoon-fed here. You will do the work on your own, at any time of day, and at your own intensity. I will be your guide and serve as a resource, encourager, and sometimes teacher, but the workload is all yours. (and mine too, because I’ll be doing the study with you!)  I’M SO EXCITED!!!!


Visit the Made to Crave website to download and print the Fridge sign for week 2. This week’s word is:



Now is not the time to quit. Be determined to make it!  We are going for life long changes, not a quick fix.  There is no end date or goal weight that we are striving for.  Healthy eating and activity will get us where we want to be. But it will take determination. This week’s reading assignments, Chapters 4, 5, and 6 will help you stay determined.  Romans 8:37 reminds us that we are more than conquerers.“Marinate” on that and be determinedDetermined to do whatever it takes to satisfy our deepest desires with God and NOT food!

    Now that week 2 is almost over, I felt we all needed to laugh a little. My mom emailed this link to me. Enjoy!
