My Thoughts: This is a lovely hardback book. I just adore the cover...it brings to mind all the wonderful things God has in store for His people.
Also, Liz Curtis Higgs is a favorite author of mine so I knew her insights/stories would be a great addition to some well known and well loved scriptures.
And, yes, this book is filled with His wonderful promises broken down to read and relish.
There are also hints on how to memorize scripture, each verse ends with a short prayer and then there is room after the typed verse for the reader to write in a different translation. Somewhat like a comparison or a study guide.
This is a great little devotional and just right for a month. Of course, one should should/could use it month after month to really get the Word into one's heart.
Love the verse that Liz uses.... "How good is a timely word!" (Proverbs 15.23).
This also makes a wonderful gift!

Meet the Author:
Liz Curtis Higgs admits, "My goal is simple: to help women embrace the grace of God with joy and abandon!"
Her latest release, 31 Verses to Write on Your Heart, explores the favorite verses chosen by more than a thousand women. It's Good to Be Queen encourages readers to become as bold, gracious, and wise as the queen of Sheba, who journeyed across the desert to test the mind and heart of King Solomon. Liz also offers a twenty-first century take on the book of Ruth in The Girl's Still Got It, dishing out meat and milk, substance and style, in a highly readable, always entertaining, and deeply personal journey.
And you'll find a heartwarming Bible study wrapped inside a beautiful gift book with The Women of Christmas. Verse by verse, Liz unwraps the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, who each welcome the Christ child into the world in a marvelous and miraculous way.
In her best-selling series of Bad Girls of the Bible books and videos, Liz breathes new life into ancient tales about the most infamous--and intriguing--women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Mary Magdalene. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, these popular titles have helped more than one million women around the world experience God's grace anew.
Liz's award-winning historical novels, which transport the stories of Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Dinah, Ruth, and Naomi to eighteenth-century Scotland, also invite readers to view these familiar biblical characters in a new light.
According to Publishers Weekly, "Higgs is a stickler for period authenticity." To that end, Liz has traveled again and again to Scotland, the setting for her novels, and has filled her shelves with one thousand resource books about Scottish history and culture.
Also a gifted professional speaker, Liz has presented more than 1,700 inspirational programs for audiences in all fifty United States and fourteen foreign countries. When the National Speakers Association honored her with the Council of Peers Award for Excellence, Liz became one of only 35 women in the world named to their CPAE-Speaker Hall of Fame.
On the personal side, Liz is married to Bill Higgs, Ph.D., 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 (and relieved) parents of two college grads.
"I have three abiding passions: encouraging my sisters in Christ, exploring the stories of women in the Bible, and writing novels set in Scotland of old. When I'm not traveling, speaking, or spinning a story, I connect with readers online, take copious photos, read historical novels, watch period films, and immerse myself in research--the more books, the merrier. I'm a lame housekeeper, a marginal cook, and a mediocre gardener, but home is still my favorite place to land."
