31 Proverbs to Light Your Path

Oh, how I love this author. Seriously, y’all. I review for the absolute best authors. I have a handful of authors whose books I will buy without even reading the back cover. (Here’s looking at you Amalia Carosella, Anna Belfrage, Richard Buxton and Eric Schumacher…to name a few.) Only a couple of said authors are ladies that I automatically turn to for guidance in all things relating to my Christian walk. One is Beth Moore, the other is Liz Curtis Higgs.

Liz Curtis Higgs is a woman after my own heart. As most of you know, my very favorite past-time is to dig into my Bible. Which starts off with my trusty sidekick, my worn NIV, and inevitably ends with 5 different translations scattered across my desk and lap.

Hello, Gorgeous Cover!

Liz takes the same “let’s-dig-in” approach with the verses of 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path. After surveying hundreds of women, she selected the 31 favorite verses from Proverbs and then takes a hard look at them, word-by-word, verse-by-verse. She breaks the verses down, using different translations, and gives God’s Word vivid, relatable, fascinating life. (Now don’t go throwing rocks at me. God’s Word is alive and active and wonderful all on it’s own, absolutely. But sometimes, the passion of others is contagious…and Liz’s passion for God’s Word gets me all excited.) (Also, don’t throw rocks at me for capitalizing “Word.” I know, I know. Technically, if it’s capitalized, it’s referring to Christ. But I just can’t NOT capitalize it when I’m referring to the Bible, you know? You totally get me. Because my readers are awesome.)

I think one of my favorite things about the book is at the end of each chapter. For each verse, the author includes a “One Minute, One Step” challenge. She encourages you to do the step right after you read it…not later, not in 5 minutes, but right then. For instance, I’ll share the first one with you. After going through the first verse, she encourages you to let some light in where you are…and gives you some ideas on how to do that. I ended up standing up right then and dusting off my little table lamp. It made the light brighter that I read by, and brightened up my little reading corner. So. Fun.

Bottom Line: Get the book. Spend time with God. That is all.

Liz
