Soul Sustenance: 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path

I enjoy reading uplifting spiritual books, so I was happy to review 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path by someone who is one of my top female Christian authors, Liz Curtis Higgs. Liz has a very real style of writing, one that is gently self-deprecating and makes her more relatable for people from all walks of life. She has a unique way of really delving into the meaning of Scripture, using multiple translations, to get the whole picture of what the original language was trying to say. She incorporates personal experiences in all of her writing, which makes it a lot more interesting to read about.

With this book in particular, she goes through 31 proverbs in concise, easy-to-read, short devotionals. Each one includes a thorough explanation of the proverb, breaking it down into tiny chunks to really emphasize its meaning. Then she includes a short applicable prayer, and a 60-second activity that is easy to do right then and there to help really reinforce the reading with an action or meditation.

The book was a great devotional. It didn't take long to read through each one, and the activities really helped extend and deepen the meaning of the proverb.

Liz Curtis Higgs is the author of more than 30 books, with more than 4.6 million copies in print. Her children’s Parable series received a 1998 ECPA Gold Medallion for Excellence, her nonfiction book Embrace Grace won a 2007 Retailers Choice Award, and her novel Whence Came a Prince received a 2006 Christy Award for Best Historical Novel. Here Burns My Candle was named 2010 Best Inspirational Romance by Romantic Times Book Reviews, and her 2011 novel, Mine Is the Night, was a New York Times bestseller. On the personal side, Liz is married to Bill Higgs, PhD, who serves as director of operations for her speaking and writing office. Liz and Bill enjoy their old Kentucky home, a nineteenth-century farmhouse in Louisville, and are the proud parents of two college grads, Matthew and Lillian. Visit Liz’s website,
