More to P31OBS Than You Might Think

Hi there! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

There is a lot more to P31OBS (Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies) than you might think! Yes we are an online study that takes place on a blog. Currently our home is on my personal blog, but did you know we are moving? That’s right, we’ve outgrown our current home and it’s time to upgrade to a bigger house! Later this month we will be moving to the official P31OBS blog that will be housed on the Proverbs 31 website. This is such an exciting time for us!

As we gear up for our next OBS (Online Bible Study), I want to make sure that you are fully equipped with everything you need to be informed about OBS and how it works. Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll be posting news you can use and all the options you have as a part of this OBS, so stay tuned.


For now though I just want to welcome you! As I write this, we currently have 13,300 ladies from 105 different countries signed up for our What Happens When Women Say Yes to God! Just think if we could all gather together in one place, we’d need a pretty big room! I think it’s such a beautiful picture of God’s love for His daughters from every race, culture, and place. We are sisters you know~because we have the same Father.

If you’ve been around me much, you know I love to give away stuff on my blog!  Whoo-hoo! Who wants a prize? Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!

I thought it would be fun if we got to know the author of What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Lysa TerKeurst, by looking at some of her other books. I’ll ask you a question about one of Lysa’s books. You reply with the correct answer in the comment section and you will be entered to win that book plus our next OBS book, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God. Easy huh?

Here’s your question:

A few years ago, Lysa hit the NY Times bestseller list with this book about satisfying your desires with God, not food. What’s the name of the book? Tell us the title of this book and share if you have this same struggle or not.

Winner will be announced Sunday, July 7th, and we’ll have a new contest and some awesome prizes to be won!

Ok, friends, I’m out! Have a great weekend!



  1. Theresa Tristan says:

    Made to Crave I used to struggle with food cravings but not anymore. God took those desires away and increased my time with HIM.

  2. nancys1128 says:

    Made to Crave. As I am a boredom eater, I guess I do have a problem with the whole food issue. God is a much better, and more permanent, boredom chaser than food. I know this, yet rarely apply it. Maybe it’s time to pick up this book – if I don’t end up winning it?

  3. Christine Ann says:

    The book is ‘Made To Crave’…. and I do struggle now and then with what goes into my mouth, especially in a stressful moments. Great book…

  4. Made to Crave was the book. Yes, I tend to go to the fridge when
    I am having problems. Now you made me realize I need to read the
    book again. I do desire a deeper relationship with God and want
    to crave Him and His Word.

  5. Joyce Ellis says:

    Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food: I’m sorry I was not able to read that book.

  6. Made to Crave. I have not read the book, however I did see the webcast, live.

  7. Vondra Mason says:

  9. nina sanchez says:

    Made to crave! I have been one who abused food for many years. From being a child onto my adult years. I have struggled with anorexia bulemia then to overeating. Food was always my comfort spot it was my secret hiding place. Not anymore! Although I still am overweight today I am learning how to enjoy food and not let it be my god! I was sexually abused as a young girl from 6 to the age of 16 so thats how I ddiscovered that relationship with food. I love made to crave!!

  10. Made to Crave.

    Excited to start the new bible study, What Happens When Women Say Yes To God, while growing my personal relationship even more!

  11. The name of the book is Made to Crave: Satisfying your Deepest Desire with God, not Food. I believe we can all fit into the “Unglued” mode at times which can send us into the “Made to Crave” mode….how we all need our Lord and Savior, and so thankful He is there, we just need to keep our focus on Him, Amen! Haven’t read these books as yet, but they are on my list. Looking forward to the study What Happens When Women say Yes to God….Thank you Melissa and the P31 team for all you do for Him.

  12. Jana Payne says:

    Lysa’s book mentioned is Made to Crave, not really my struggle

  13. Deborah says:

    Made to crave
    I think I have a problem, because I have been trying to loose the last 20 lbs of the 42 I needed to loose. I have been praying and its only my faith and trust in my Lord that I don’t give up.

  14. Linda K. says:

  17. Tasha Barber says:

    Made To Crave. It can be my struggle when I am at times mainly when feel the most pain. It’s an area I continue to work on. I know my HEAVENLY FATHER should be the one I cling to but I’m a work in progress.

  18. Vickie S says:

    Made to Crave and yes have struggled with this for years!

  19. Made to Crave. I started the book but I guess I have things I don’t want to up. I am encouraged to begin again!

  20. Made to Crave. I don’t use food as a comfort, I often use self-pity and isolating myself from others even though I truly crave to socialize.

  21. Stacie J says:

    The book is called Made to Crave. This book helped me a lot and I was able to lose 30 pounds because of it!! Thanks Lysa!!! It is still a struggle sometimes but not like it used to be

  22. Made to Crave – don’t struggle with this issue however have other struggles that I need to overcome to crave God and Him only! Looking forward to the new online study:)

  23. Jessica Bushong says:

    made to crave. I don’t have a problem with eating but have family members that do and I see their struggles.

  24. Made to Crave – I just got this book for my Kindle and I am looking forward to reading it since I do struggle with food choices and weight struggles!

  25. Elisa Rodriguez says:

    the name of Lysa’s book is “Made to Crave” In the past 4 months have lost 105″ all over my body and 35 lbs. I had a series of health issues that landed me in a short visit to the ER (one which I do not wish to repeat). I went to see a nutritionist at the advise of my MD. I have been doing pretty good maintaining the weight off but I do have to say I could not do it alone….I am so blessed to have GOD’s love and support and His word encouraging me every step of the way. When I need encouraging and I want to eat the whole pack of cookies as opposed to one, I turn to my Bible and I supplement my body with HIS WORD and PRAYER. the cravings go away!!!! I am excited to begin reading Lysa’s book “Made to Crave” I believe it will encourage me to continue on my journey and increase my motivation to continue to stay in God’s word when “TEMPTATION” for food tries to show its ugly head

  26. Erin W. says:

    Made to Crave! This is one on the “I gotta read” list. I, as well as both of my daughters, struggle with food issues.

  27. Monica A says:

    The book is Made to Crave. I have occasional cravings but don’t really struggle with food.

  28. Rebecca Tukel says:

    Made to Crave.

  29. Made to Crave
    I have not read the book, but I plan to. I have read Unglued, which was
    A great book. I do have struggles with food and weight but it is getting better with a lot of hard work and prayer, because with God anything is possible.

  30. lisa owen says:

    Made to Crave :-) I love this book and struggle with this!

  31. Carolyn says:

    “Made to Crave” I have not struggled with food cravings as much as Not being able to eat when things are bothering me – which also brings problems. Either way, God has to be the answer.

  32. LaVerne says:

    “Made to Crave” I am about half way reading this book It is awesome and I never thought about bring God into my weight control issue I go up & down depending on the stress in my life and don’t care attitude. I have recommended this book to a friend who is struggling with diabetes and getting on the right track. I also going to get a copy for my daughter who has struggled with weight issues and she has done an awesome job in losing her weight but I think this book will help her keep it off and put God in her life more than He is right now. God is Awesome.

  33. Made to Crave. I think this something that every woman would have to admit she struggles with….I know I do. I feel like if I just eat what I am craving, I will feel better inside, but not surprisingly, it never does the trick. I need to remember to fill myself with the only thing that truly satisfies – God’s love for me through His sin Jesus.

  34. Made to Crave. Have not read it, but have heard it’s a great read!

  35. Karen R. says:

    Made To Crave….This is not real a struggle other struggles though

  36. Made to Crave. I havent read this book yet…while I havent had a problem with food and emotional eating. I do know I have craved for something more in my life. Relationships and deeper union with God and other humans.

  37. Made to Crave…a life-changing experience!

  38. Jenny M says:

    Made to Crave. I will soon be 52 and have had a struggle with my weight and eating my whole life. I know that it has more to do with masking my emotions than the actual food that I consume. But, I am learning to lean on and depend on God and not food.

  39. Made to Crave and it is an awesome book!!,

  40. kathleen says:

    Made To Crave! I am embarking on a weight loss journey and would love to have this book. After meeting with my doctor last week, I have close to 200 pounds to lose. Yeah – a bit overwhelming but I am going to break it down into small goals and with the Lord’s help, I will accomplish a healthier body. Please pray for me.

  41. Made To Crave! Yes! My coming back to Jesus was smack dab in the middle of an eating disorder. Nothing else but Jesus could satisfy!

  42. Diane W. says:

    Made to Crave

  43. Made to Crave. This is my first online bible study…I am looking forward to it so much!!

  44. The book is Made to Crave…

  45. The book is Made to Crave. My issue with food is when I eat. I am on the road
    a lot of the time and do not take the time to eat. Then when day is done. That is when I eat. So I need to learn to eat while on the run. Not junk food, but the proper food to sustain me through the day.

  46. Michelle Sancken says:

    Made to Crave :)

  47. April Kyzar says:

    Made to crave!!!!!!!

  49. Made to Crave. I haven’t read it, but I have many friends who have & have loved it.

  50. It’s Made to Crave. I have 70 pounds to lose. Much of that weight gain was from eating to mask emotions.

    • Kathleen says:
