“Cravings: Exploring the Connection between Food, Faith, and Our Quest for Wholeness and Holiness”

Mary De Turris Poust, Nationally recognized public speaker, retreat leader, blogger and author of six books on Catholicism and spirituality.

So often what feels like hunger for food is really a hunger for something much deeper, a craving for the kind of fullness that only God can provide. Food often becomes a way to fill the void, but it never truly satisfies. The result is an endless cycle of eating issues, self-esteem struggles, and untapped spiritual potential. Join Mary DeTurris Poust, author of Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God (Ave Maria Press), as she explores the undeniable connection between physical and spiritual nourishment and how we can discover the path to wholeness, self-acceptance and serenity by exploring the relationship between food and faith.
