Constantly Craving:
How to Make Sense of Always Wanting More
By Marilyn Meberg

We live in a culture of constantly wanting more. We are insatiable and very unhappy. But this sense of insatiability and unhappiness can cause additional stress and a fundamental lack of fulfillment. Marilyn Meberg’s book gives us some important tips on how to stop craving and looking for more in all the wrong places.

Meberg’s goal in writing this book is for the reader to learn how to balance her life and to realize that her expectations cannot always be fulfilled. Very few aspects of our lives can always exceed our expectations. We have to learn to be happy with a lot less than we expect. And it may even be necessary for us to re-evaluate our expectations from time to time.

What exactly do we crave? According to Meberg, it seems that most of us crave excitement to break the monotony of the same. We always want something more. Nothing is ever enough. We want more love, romance, contentment, happiness, friendship, time and meaning. But maybe we should be looking for other things, such as developing more meaning in solitude and God’s purpose for us. That would change our focus and the quality of our cravings.

I loved Meberg’s book from beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down. Meberg’s book is an important contribution in our skeptical times. It’s a book about our times and for our times. The reader will be encouraged to rethink his/her cravings for more and stop searching for happiness in all the wrong places.

What a gem of a book!
