Book Review: Constantly Craving by Marilyn Meberg

Constantly Craving
by:  Marilyn Meberg

About the Book:
Our cravings are written into our DNA. They’re influenced by our childhood experiences. They’re driving the choices we make as adults. And often, they’re keeping us hungry. Never satisfied. Ever searching.
What do they mean? What are we to do with them? Should we feel guilty? Are there solutions?
Counselor and author Marilyn Meberg knows all about cravings. She also knows the One who knit us together, desires and all. With wit and compassion, Marilyn helps us understand our appetites, offers advice for managing them here on earth, and encourages us to eagerly await the day when we will find total satisfaction in heaven.
In the meantime, Constantly Craving is an excellent reminder that our desires for more can lead us to the One we really need, the only One who will quench our thirst forever. Really? Really!

My Review:
I have been married for 23 years to an addict.  Although he is sober now, I have spent a large portion of our marriage trying to figure him out.  The cravings, why?  Why does he have them, but I don't?  I have always been fascinated by the compulsions that some feel and why?  So when I was able to review this book I jumped at it.  Constantly Craving does a wonderful job of touching on all kinds of cravings, from craving attention to craving happiness and how DNA plays its role.  She also provides scriptures that back up her points and she shares stories from her life.  The author does provide some ways to help with some cravings but I didn't really learn anything that made me say Aha!  This is an easy read and a well written book that is worth the time to read.  Gonna try to get hubby to read it too, we'll see. 

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in this post via BookSneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
