Constantly Craving by Marilyn Meberg

I was craving to read a book like this! This is the first book I have read by Women of Faith speaker and author Marilyn Meberg. Constantly Craving explains the need we all have to crave more than what we have on this Earth. Some topics discussed in the book include why we crave, what we crave for and ultimately what Scripture tells us about aiding these feelings and giving us a new outlook. 

I find Marilyn’s style of writing witty and humorous. The book kept me engaged and wanting to read more.  I couldn’t seem to put the book down and I just about read the whole book in one sitting on a long day of traveling on a plane.  Marilyn tells of numerous stories of her youth and how growing up as a preacher’s daughter influenced her life.  

 I particularly enjoyed reading Chapter 10-Finding More in God’s Purpose Four Our Lives. Marilyn describes always to look to Scripture instead of signs, mentioning Proverbs 3:6, “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” 

I selected to read Constantly Craving as I have seen Marilyn Meberg speak at a Women of Faith event and I was captivated by her candor and encouragement to women. I was not disappointed in her book and enjoyed reading every minute of Constantly Craving.   I look forward to reading more books by this charming author.
