Mary DeTurris Poust has once again brought us a spiritual work that speaks to us in the ordinary things of life. In “Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God” she takes on the monumental struggle most of us have with self-image and diet. With humor and very practical suggestions, she helps us to see the blessings found in turning everything over to God and allowing Him to transform our love-hate relationship with food and the mirror. By doing so, we can deepen our relationship with God and see the gifts He has for us everyday. We also then can experience the greatest gift of all, His deep and abiding love for each of us as His beloved child. Before you start your next diet, or if you “wrestle” with your body image, this is the book for you! You won’t be disappointed.
