Dynamic Daughters: Made to Crave

Genesis 25:29-34(NIV)

29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew,<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-688A" data-link="(A)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> Esau came in from the open country,<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-688B" data-link="(B)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> famished. 30 He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew!<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-689C" data-link="(C)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.<span class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-NIV-689a" data-link="[a]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>[a])<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-689D" data-link="(D)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>
31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-690E" data-link="(E)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>
32 “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”
33 But Jacob said, “Swear<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-692F" data-link="(F)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-692G" data-link="(G)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> to Jacob.
34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew.<span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-NIV-693H" data-link="(H)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”> He ate and drank, and then got up and left.
So Esau despised his birthright.

“Made to Crave” is a fantastic book that speaks to the heart of a woman.  The author walks us through how we as women have specific struggles, going back to Eve!

What is especially awesome is…
 she co-wrote a teen version of this book.

I started reading this book with my dynamic daughter because I wanted her to know and feel empowered by being aware of how tricky the devil can be with creating “cravings” for other distractions to lure us away from Gods beautiful, perfect plan for us.

The  authors beautifully explain how our cravings for stuff, food, comparing, shopping, wrong kind of love can lead us to poor choices…choices that don’t put GOD first!

The bible story of Esau above is an excellent example of how we can get distracted for our immediate desire, want…and not keep our eye on the prize.  Where our  daughters are concerned the prize is them staying strong and keeping their virtue intact in a world full of constant contradictory messages of instant gratification!

Teach your daughter to have a game plan when faced with a situation that goes against her teachings, against her faith, against her virtue.  Teach her to write out her plans, rehearse them in her head, have an accountability friend, one just as committed to living a virtuous life as she is.  And empower her with amazing books that reference God’s word like this one, MADE TO CRAVE, in order to constantly strengthen her armor!

ARMOR YOUR DYNAMIC DAUGHTER WITH FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE….TO FEED HER MIND, BODY, AND SOUL….TO BECOME THE WONDERFUL WARRIOR WOMAN….SHE IS DESTINED TO BE!

Hugs, prayers, blessings…
