Publisher's Description

Take Heart, Beloved.
His Light Is Shining,
And Your Path Is Clear.

Wherever you are on your journey, here is the wisdom you need for the road ahead. Maybe you’re stuck and want to move forward. Or you feel anxious and long to know what’s next. Or you’re ready for an uplifting reminder that God holds your future in His loving hands.
 
Chosen by hundreds of women as their favorite verses in Proverbs, these thirty-one nuggets of truth reveal how faithfully God honors His promise, "I will instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths" (Proverbs 4:11).
 
Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs examines each word with care and adds a sprinkling of humor through her honest stories and personal examples. For each verse you’ll find a unique "One Minute, One Step" challenge—a do-it-now task that requires one minute or less. You’ll soon discover how practical and meaningful the book of Proverbs is as you apply its ancient wisdom to your thoroughly modern life.
 
With a study guide included, 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path is a daily devotional and a small-group Bible study, wrapped in a beautiful gift book brimming with encouragement!

Editorial Reviews

"Liz Curtis Higgs has a contagious passion for the Word of God, something you see so beautifully in play in 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path. Practical, well-researched, and full of poignant stories, this book will empower you to live in light of God’s wisdom."
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, I’ve 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 I’ll 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 God’s 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."
Vivian Mabuni, author of Warrior in Pink

    Four 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.

    "31 Proverbs to Light Your Path" is a devotional study that focused on 31 verses from proverbs. Each chapter started with the verse from proverbs. The author then pulled out each major thought in the proverb and discussed it. She used phrases from different translations to help bring out the full meaning of the proverb. I appreciate that she kept the focus on what God has done (rather than making the reader feel like they need to work harder to measure up). Each chapter ended with a quick activity that you can do to help apply or remember what you've learned. Overall, I'd recommend this book.

    From page 6: "As to our being righteous, that is entirely the Lord's work. Righteousness isn't about our goodness; it's about God's goodness. We can't become "right-living people" (MSG) on our own. Our walk with Him is upright only because He bent down to carry a cross."

    I received this ARC review copy of the book from the publisher.

    31 Proverbs to Light Your Path, by Liz Curtis Higgs, is a beautifully written devotional. Filled with stories and eloquent descriptions of Gods Word, this book presents the scriptures in a loving and easy to understand way.

    The book includes many features to assist the readers in their walk with God. As the title indicates, there are thirty-one devotions, each centered around a different proverb. Each includes a scripture, a word by word study of that scripture, a prayer, and a One Minute, One Step challenge to help brighten ones own path. Liz also includes an introduction explaining the devotional, a list of different versions of the Bible, and notes with specific verses divided into lists by topic. The study guide at the end provides the opportunity for personal or group study for those wishing to dive deeper into the Word.

    I found this to be a delightful book. As always, Liz Curtis Higgs presents Gods Word in a simple and down to earth manner that would brighten anyones day and encourage him to desire a deeper relationship with Christ. I especially appreciate the one-minute ideas at the end of each entry that provide opportunities to take action.

    I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to deepen a relationship with Christ.
