We all have a desperate need for God not just for following him or being committed to him, but to be intimately connected to him.
We long for purpose, for affirmation, for attention, for nurture. But Gari Meacham writes that we fall short of being desperate for God, or we miss the longed-for romance with God we hear about in scripture. Were uncertain how to distinguish our longings from our fears. When, says Meacham, did our longings turn to hauntings? And when did we buy into the counterfeit yearnings for control, and the insecurity, perfectionism and other attitudes that quench Spirit Hunger?
The answer to Spirit Hunger is to engage God like never before. In this book Meacham shows through her story and the stories of others how to turn worry into belief, problems and heartaches into a life of intimate prayer, and sighs for intimacy into closeness with God. She discusses her discoveries about prayer including why asking is sometimes hard, how we can notice and track Gods movements as we seek his answers, and why its sometimes such a struggle to believe after weve prayed.
Meacham writes, With the authenticity of my own life storiesmarriage to a professional baseball player, struggles with severe food bondage, and a father who was a quadriplegicI came to the crisp realization that my prayer life and my belief needed to match. Spirit Hunger provides a clear path towards matching these heart criesleading away from crumbs and counterfeit, to a hungering for God.

Gari currently resides in Houston, Texas where she regularly speaks and teaches at her home church, Second Baptist Church of Houston, one of the largest churches in the country.
IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5I liked the examples in this bookDecember 10, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The author's personality shines in this very personal book written by Gari Meacham. Learning how to draw closer to the Lord by reading about another persons journey is what this book is all about. The subtitle to the book is Our Deep Longing To Connect With God.
I enjoyed the examples of other Christian's and their journey to a closer relationship with the Lord. I thought the author did an excellent job using personal illustrations to expound on her topics. She used scripture to perfection. Not over use but only when it will help make her point about the topic.
I gave this book 4/5 stars. The information given was informative and helpful. The personal stories were meaningful and some were even filled with humor. I wish there had been more on finding your purpose as a Christian rather then so much on what Christians long for. Overall it was a good book that I would recommend to a friend.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
