I bought this book after seeing Liz talk about it on her video with Ann Voskamp. I loved the book so much, I bought it for all the women in my small group. One of those women then bought it for all the women in her groups! This is the perfect devotional reading to get your heart ready for Christmas. I will now read this every year!
I invited friends to join me in reading and discussing the book for Advent. We met at the beginning of the season. The discussion questions led us to real sharing about the way we approach the Christmas season and how we could keep Jesus as the center. We loved the way Liz brought these women to life. She gave us much to consider. I think that each of us could relate better to the reality of their lives after reading this book. Thank you, Liz!
I found this book to be very enjoyable and encouraging. I like Liz's style of writing and how she brings history and fact while pertaining it to our every day lives.
This is a great book for personal study during the Advent season or if you want a good read during Christmas.
Liz focuses on the 3 women, Elizabeth, Mary and Anna but also their male counterparts: Zacharias, Joseph and Simeon. When you think you have the Christmas story down pat, read this book and you'll realize how much more there is to know about the Christmas story.
Liz Curtis Higgs has a way of making you feel part of the story of these wonderful women of Christmas. You learn about their obedience and love for God in a whole new way. It's inspiring and gives hope for ordinary girls today that we also can be used by God if we step out in faith and trusting His plan for us. I bought several of these for friends also.
