Praise

“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

I grew up as a cradle Catholic and not taking the time to really learn scripture. Reading this book helps me focus on finding meaning in each word and spend quality time with scripture.  I hope Liz Curtis Higgins keeps these books coming!I received a copy of this book from...

By Marnie Caldwell

It's such a joy to read Liz Curtis Higgs' work as she crafts fact with humor and combines Bible knowledge with teaching.  She has taken 31 different Proverbs and split them into digestible pieces to teach about all the wisdom hidden in a single Proverb. I appreciate the work she has done with the use of various Bible translations to give several points-of-view for a word or phrase of the Proverb.

By Stephanie Curtner (Address Apt 114)

Based around 31 popular verses in Proverbs, each chapter looks at the verse through the lens of multiple translations, often with a story from Mrs. Higgs's own life as well, ending with a prayer, and a challenge. I loved how this was laid out, and easy to read. A great way to meditate on a Word a little each day, and perfect as an everyday devotional, or for a bible study session.
