Are you looking for some fresh ways to revitalize your faith, improve your health, and enjoy life more in the New Year? If so, check out Sheri Rose Shepherd’s new book, If You Have A Craving, I Have A Cure. In this book, Sheri shares a number of easy-to-implement coaching tips to help you live out your faith and over 100 recipes she used to lose more than 50 pounds!
The thing I liked most about Sheri’s book is that I found her highly relatable as an author. Sheri writes in an easy-to-read, highly personable style. She opens each themed chapter with a personal anecdote and structures the chapters as follows:
- Soul Food contains an opening scripture and a brief devotional.
- New Life Recipes provide scriptures and tips to help you change your life.
- Power Up With Prayer closes with scripture and prayer.
- Recipes contain selections that relate to the chapter’s theme.
- Taste of Truth provides a final thought on the topic.
- A QR code provides access to additional health, weight loss and kitchen coaching tips.
The thing I feel is the book’s biggest weakness is that, theologically speaking, the book is lightweight. While Sheri liberally shares scripture throughout her book (good), the verses are selected to fit the coaching point she is making, not to shed light on the verse’s actual intended meaning in context (bad).
If you are looking for a serious bible study, this isn’t the book for you. But, if you are a time-pressed Christian who is more interested in finding some positive ways to incorporate Scripture into your life than in deep, theological nuances, check it out – you’ll probably enjoy it!
