Worship leader, recording artist, songwriter, and producer, Israel Houghton became involved full-time in worship ministry in 1989. From the start, he looked to overcome cultural and denominational barriers. With this idea as the centerpiece, Israel formed his New Breed Ministries in 1995 with his wife, Meleasa, and a group of world-class musicians and singers. Although their popularity had been growing steadily since the group’s inception, they were catapulted into the limelight during 2005 with the release of their gold-certified CD, Live from Another Level. They followed this success with the release of Alive in South Africa (2005), A Timeless Christmas (2006), A Deeper Level (2007), The Power of One (2009), and Love God, Love People (2010). His recordings have received multiple Dove and Stellar Awards, a Soul Train Award, and a Grammy Award. Israel continues to serve as a worship leader at Houston’s Lakewood Church. He and Meleasa make their home near Houston with their three young children.

The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn’t a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the “I’ll start again Monday” cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn’t a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal – and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the "want to" in making healthy lifestyle choices.
