Gave copies to both my Wife and 14yr old Daughter for Christmas. They both LOVE the books and spend time discussing sections after they've read them. I know the book will have a lasting impact on each of them and they will have a richer understanding and much greater appreciation for God's servants Elizabeth, Mary and Anna for all their Christmas's to come! And yes, also for The Baby In The Manger who made it all possible!
Liz Curtis Higgs has such a unique and refreshing understanding of biblical characters and allows her readers to experience a deeper and very special perspective of the emotions they must have felt, emotions that we also experience. This book was given as gift to the special women in my life, sisters, friends, and co-workers.
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!
