I have always liked a good timeline. (Maybe it says I’m a visual learner?) I’d rather see a graphic explaining something than hear about something. I LOVE this one with pics! **I think I would like a timeline at my funeral…anyone wanna work on that for me?
As an elementary teacher we used to teach timelines and I always found it interesting what the kids chose as ‘dot worthy.’
Several years ago I read a book. It put a dot on my life, meaning: life was viewed one way before the dot and a different way after the dot. This book is about food, but not really. It’s mostly about what we crave (ever had that ‘rummage through the cabinets snack-fest?’ You know the one: it leaves you stuffed and grumbly but still not satisfied??!”)
The book is by Lisa Terkeurst and it’s entitled Made to Crave, although most refer to it as Crave. I getting ready to do a study of the book with some of my Online bible study friends from Proverbs 31 Ministries. The last time I read it, I just read it…no studying involved. I’m looking forward to really delving into it this time.
I have some unhealthy relationships with food. I love food. Healthy or unhealthy food, I overeat. A good stage of overeating is usually followed by an attempt to mega-control what I eat. I have also been known to become obsessed with Numbers: body fat percentages, clothing sizes, bodyweight, etc. Sometimes it’s for health reasons, other times for vanity’s sake. (I’m not proud, I’m just stating the facts, folk!)
The premise of this book is that we were made to crave God, but we substitute our craving for God with food, alcohol, drugs, activity…..whatever.
Would you be interested in doing this study alongside me? We are about to get kicked off, January 19th. Online bible study is just that, a guided study of a book with bible study. You won’t be disappointed. You can interact if you choose.

Come get your own dot!! You will be glad you did.
