Mary DeMuth, author of Jesus Every Day
"Truly a devotional treasure. In 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path, Liz gently leads us through a series of proverbs, unpacking them with depth and insight as she shares discoveries from her own journey and offers ideas for personal application. This book reminds us that Proverbs is much more than a collection of pithy insights; it is a rich well of wisdom and revelation for everyday life. Keep it on your bedside table."
Jo Saxton, author of The Dream of You and board chair of 3Dmovements
"For most of my life, Ive prayed one single prayer over and over: God, grant me wisdom! Even as a child, I knew wisdom to be my lamp in the dark, a needed comfort while trying to find my way through a complicated life. In 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path, Liz Curtis Higgs mines rich biblical text to reveal the brightest of lights, thirty-one truths with enough wattage to help you and me walk through the most difficult of nights. Even better, she comes alongside and takes the journey with us."
Michele Cushatt, author of Undone and I Am
"With a delightfully fresh approach, 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path illuminates familiar passages, and Liz makes the journey through these words of wisdom both personal and practical. Many books focus on general truths in Proverbs, but Liz goes word by word, and this digging turns up plenty of new treasures along the way. This is a book Ill gladly return to again and again."
Holley Gerth, author of What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days
"I absolutely love how Liz Curtis Higgs writes with clarity, tenderness, truth, humor, and depth. As in her other books, Liz uses careful study of Gods Word to reveal the nuances of the original Hebrew in the selected scriptures. Formatted for both personal and group Bible study, this is not a read-only-once book. Each writing is full of richness that will have the reader discovering new insights with each reading. The "One Minute, One Step" challenges are practical, eye-opening, and sometimes convicting. You will come away from this book with a greater understanding of the character and goodness of God and how our lives can reflect His truth."

ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Simple, Lovely, DevotionalOctober 29, 2017ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love this new devotional by best selling author Liz Curtis Higgs. It is a very practical, simple, and useable 31 chapter book. Higgs walks through 31 Proverbs as a guide, teacher, and friend. She also challenges us to one simple reflection or task to that applies or highlights the Proverb in each chapter called One Minute, One Step. I found these to be enjoyable and effective.
One of my favorite chapters of 31 Proverbs To Light Your Path is Chapter 17 Smart Money. Liz walks us through Proverbs 16:16, How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver. She points out that thieves can steal your money but not your wisdom. I loved her personal story in this chapter about her new raincoat. I could so see myself in this story! She ends the chapter with a brief prayer asking God to teach her to value what He values. In her One Minute, One Step, Liz encourages us to quickly go through our closets and find an item we havent worn in a long time. Then, try it on and if it doesnt fit donate it to a favorite charity shop. Again, this book is very practical and good for the soul.
I first became acquainted with Liz Curtis Higgs when I read her retelling of Ruth, Mine is the Night. It quickly became one of the books I recommend the most to friends who are looking for a good read. I know you will enjoy this book just as much. I requested a review copy from Bloggingforbooks because i knew I would enjoy it. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own. I have not been compensated.
GazpachoHarrison, MIAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Grow Closer to God through a Study in ProverbsOctober 25, 2017GazpachoHarrison, MIAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I want to find courage, wisdom and common sense, Proverbs is my go to book of the Bible. Liz Curtis Higgs is a talented author, writing books for children and adults alike. She writes both fiction and non-fiction genres as well. This book is one that is like a warm light bringing comfort in what can be a dark world.
This author has chosen 31 verses from the book of Proverbs in the Old Testament of the Bible. Each chapter is only a couple pages long. At the end of each chapter, the author has added an application page called, "One Minute, One step." Each of them contain a suggestion of something practical and do-able to apply the lesson of that chapter.
At the end of the book, there are discussion questions that could be included with each chapter and verse to make this either a personal devotional or a group Bible Study. The author has used many different versions of the Bible to delve into as much insight as possible to make these verses come alive for us. She also includes many other Bible verses as cross references when digging into a topic of interest. There's a lot of love in this volume.
I loved this study so much that my copy of the book is all marked up, with underlined phrases, starred special quotes, and parenthesis around passages I want to read over and over. The author brings to the table a transformed life, where she shares her own experiences and insights into these verses. Her storytelling ability held me to the page so many times. I can see that I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of this book.
The part of this book I like best is its conversational nature. I felt as if she and I were sitting at a table with a cup of tea or coffee in front of us, just talking about the Lord and His graciousness. It is both comfortable and meaningful, delightful yet pithy. I gained some new perspectives on life by going through this study verse by verse. If she wrote another 31 verses out of Proverbs and published it, I would be the first one in line to purchase it.

Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Proverbs: Ancient Wisdom for Modern LifeOctober 9, 2017Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Four young men have grown up around our dining room table, and the book of Proverbs has shown up as a regular on the breakfast menu, along with the oatmeal and the eggs. Liz Curtis Higgs asked hundreds of her readers to choose their favorite verses from the Proverbs and then narrowed the list down to the top 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path, a months worth of daily wisdom, comfort and jarring insights.
Liz loves words and has dug deep into each text, phrase by phrase, holding the truth up to the light and turning it slowly so as to appreciate each facet. The proverbs are all about wisdom, but the goal Liz has in mind is to assist her readers in savoring Gods goodness. Gods words are an invitation to individual spiritual growth and a deep source of satisfaction for the hunger no breakfast can satisfy. (14)
Drawing from personal examples and her own humorous observations of life on this planet, Liz brings unique and refreshing insights to much-beloved sacred words:
A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart. (Proverbs 21:2)
Of the 31 Proverbs in the book, 13 have the word but right in the middle. Liz compares but to a hinged door that leads to another possibility or an important comparison. But can also serve as a flashing light, a warning, a stop sign. (18)
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. (Proverbs 11:13)
A chatty personality is delightful, and it can come in handy, Im sure, when Liz is on the road with people coming and going in her life all the time, but she shares the dark side of loving to talk, and the proverbs offer a path of freedom away from the sins that bind us and the bad habits that slow our growth toward righteousness.
In fact, more than a hundred verses in Proverbs focus on the power of words to wound or heal. Having experienced the down side of this equation, Liz invites her readers to dream along with her about a life in which the only words we speak to one another are pleasant and kind and fair. (Proverbs 16:24)
Anxiety weights down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. (Proverbs 12:25)
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
Anxiety and depression are a reality that cannot be shrugged off with a scriptural band aid. Liz knows from her own experience of swallowing pride and swallowing the daily pill for depression that the cheerful heart and anxiety free living are not empty promises but there are bio-chemical realities that must be faced head on.
And just in case anyone has become discouraged in their reading of Proverbs as a list of good deeds for the habitual do-gooder, Liz makes the important distinction between doing a good thing and doing a God thing. Generous living and joyous giving flow from a relationship with the God who owns all things.
When Proverbs 18:10 declares that the name of the Lord is a fortified tower and encourages readers to run to it for safety, its helpful to have a concrete image to connect with the name of the Lord, and Liz has added something to my tool belt: a list of twenty-six names of God in alphabetical order for memorization and meditation. (Thanks, Liz!)
The hands-on, boots on the ground mentality of 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path makes it clear that the light on our path is godly wisdom that emanates from wise choices, righteous deeds, and an intentional following of God that happens over a life time. Each of the 31 Proverbs comes with a One Minute, One Step practical application. Suggestions range from the very simple list everything you are grateful for to the more intensely meddling assignment of initiating reconciliation with someone we have wronged, hurt, or offended.
With Bible study questions in the back of the book along with complementary passages that allow Scripture to comment on Scripture, Liz has crafted a resource for individual use or for small group study. The application of ancient truth to a thoroughly modern life begins with opening the pages of Scripture and allowing the Spirit of God to speak Truth into our words, our relationships, and our motives as we are led along His straight paths.
