That’s right- I’d love to chat it up with you and your friends… that’s why I’m giving away a conference call today. See below for details. But first, we must process some things together.
Am I old?
I laughed out loud at Jamie L’s comment yesterday. Oh my heavens, I think I AM old. She said, “…On a side note, what is an Izod? It sounds like a jazzed up ipod.”
I feel certain, if you don’t know the wonders of the Izod shirt, you are too young to remember the delights of Bob Barker, Calvin Klein jeans jumpers, whale belt buckles, Pappagallo purses with button on covers, and Rick Springfield’s ‘Jessie’s Girl.’
Precious Jamie… an Izod is a polo shirt with an alligator emblem. And I never even made the connection of how closely it sounded like an ipod… which I still don’t own. Yet another fact making me feel as old as the cassette tapes I’m still holding onto though I don’t have a tape player.
I was just getting the hang of CDs when they all turned into downloads.
Is 41 old?
Another comment I got yesterday, touched my heart in a deep and familiar place. That place that says, “If you read this, you will change and change is hard… so don’t read it.” I know that feeling. There are things I put off reading for that very reason. Five years ago I could have written this comment by Jamie…
“Can I tell you that Made to Crave has been in my cart on Amazon for weeks now, but I’m scared to death to hit the checkout button. I know I need it, and I really want it, but what if I fail? What if I’m one that can’t overcome this weight issue? It is my fears and insecurities that are a distraction for me.”
Precious sister, Made to Crave is a space of grace for your tired soul. The goal isn’t the amount of weight you need to lose- the goal is discovering peace- physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Once you discover nothing tastes as good as peace feels, the journey becomes less and less about food and more and more about God.
That’s all Made to Crave is… an invitation to discover truths that will free you from the mental exhaustion of trying and failing over and over again.
It’s not a quick fix plan to beat your tastebuds into submission. It’s positioning your soul in the center of God’s truth. There you will discover where your strength ends, His begins.
And in His strength is where miraculous victories occur.
Today, we are replaying on demand, Week 2 of the Made to Crave webcast. You don’t want to miss it. Even if you saw it the first time around! Today, we’ll learn crucial truths from Dr. Chilton and my pastor reminds us, “We don’t have to worry about letting God down because we were never holding Him up.” Now that will preach to my soul all day long!
And it’s ‘Tell a friend Tuesday!’ Which means we want you to tell your friends about the FREE webcast on demand all day today at www.MadetoCrave.org and then leave a comment below about who you told.
One commenter will be chosen to win a phone call I’m giving away with you, me, and your friends!
Oh think of the fun we’ll have chatting it up about life, kids, Made to Crave, and maybe even the delights of the 1980’s.
Maybe you could even help usher me into the modern age of the ipod. Or, maybe not. I feel certain as soon as I learn all about the Ipod, it will be replaced by some new technology situation… like the jazzed up ipod called Izod.
