I received a copy of this book for free in return for my review. I was not required to write a positive review.
What does it mean to live abundantly? This is the question that Shauna Niequist explores in her new devotional book Savor.
I have been looking for a good devotional book for quite some time. I like to have the story as well as the verses from the Bible to dwell on. Savor does just that. With a mix of her classic story telling as well as her wonderful recipes, Shauna brings us through a year closer to God as well as exploring the fellowship that we need throughout the year.
We all want to savor everything about this life, knowing that it is short, knowing that time passes quickly. The ways of our modern world seem to be rush rush rush, and we rarely take the time to slow down and enjoy our life, instead we are looking to the next thing constantly.
I love that Shauna is telling us that it is something she struggles with as well.
I like that she wants us to stop letting the little annoyances of the day command our day, and instead helps us to see all that we have and the amazing opportunities we have every day to enjoy the life that God has given us.
This devotional is 365 days, and can be started at any point in the year. Each day starts with a verse to meditate on and follows with a story of Shauna’s. It ends with a question or thought for us to ponder throughout our day, allowing us to journal and meditate as much as we want. And then, interspersed throughout the days of devotions, there are Shauna’s amazing recipes. Things like Lemon Dill Soup, Spicy Peanut Noodles, and Grilled Peach & Caramel Sundaes. These are recipes that can be savored and shared with our loved ones.
Savor is a great devotional if you are looking for something to take you through each day of the year; something to help direct you in savoring your own life. I highly recommend it!
