“Getting rid of the old would be exciting enough, yet God also brings in the new. A new gift, a new talent, a new calling.”
I’ve been a fan of Liz Curtis Higgs for a long time, both her non fiction and her fiction. I even got to hang out with her recently when she stopped by the office. If someone is willing to do a FB Live video with me, then you know they’re extra awesome! (You can see it here). Recently this book came out and thought it was such a great resource for those wanting to memorize scripture and dive a little deeper!
Here are the words of hope you’re looking for when your faith needs a boost or a friend needs encouragement. Chosen by more than a thousand women as their favorite verses in the Bible, each one is worth learning, worth sharing, worth remembering,
You’ll find verses you already know and love: “I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). Others may be less familiar but are no less powerful: “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe” (Proverbs 29:25). All of them capture the truth of God’s goodness, mercy, and love for His own.
Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs invites you to experience—
A deeper, richer understanding of thirty-one treasured verses.
A fresh look at how these timeless truths can impact your life.
A new passion for memorizing Scripture, verse by verse.
Thirty-one creative ways to keep them in your heart forever.
With a study guide included, 31 Verses to Write on Your Heart is a daily devotional and a small-group Bible study, wrapped in a lovely gift book overflowing with joy!
I love that each chapter is short (so you can read one daily if you want to go all in) and encourages to memorize a verse. Plus Higgs’ humorous, honest and refreshing style brings the Truth to life.
Here’s a few quotes I especially loved:
“Hope does not disappoint, not when our hope is in God.” pg 25
One of my favorite quotes from the chapter of Philippians 4:13:
“We Can Do It!” can be more than a war slogan. It’s a cry for victory in the midst of our spiritual battles. A proclamation shout to the Enemy of our souls: “God is ‘the One who makes me who I am’” (MSG).
This one on Proverbs 31:30: “We’ve seen how gorgeous God’s woman can be. Her eyes shine with His love, her mouth smiles with His joy, her hands move at His bidding, and her feet follow where He leads. She exudes His peace, she offers His hope, she knows His Word, she speaks His truth, she embraced His people, and she glorifies His name.”
