Savor by Shauna Niequist {A Review}

_225_350_Book.1548.coverWhat does it mean to live abundantly where you are, as you are? What does it mean to Savor?

Shauna Niequist  has written a devotional designed to give us a few moments to savor the quiet, savor the time with our Savior. She focuses on the two big F’s…Food and Faith. One could even add the third F, Fellowship.

Designed to meet the needs of women it feeds the soul, and the body. Shauna has interspersed recipes throughout the pages. It’s a true meal of comfort food for your whole self. The devotional feeds your spirit and the recipes feed your physical body.

The devotionals are like homemade mac-n-cheese, or mashed potatoes, or chicken noodle soup for your soul.

The book, from it’s linen bound cover, navy page edges, and cream ribbon to it’s printed words is a feast for the eyes. It is the perfect gift for the foodie in your life…even if that is you.  This book is a January 1 through December 31 devotional, every day will delight your senses.

The recipes include such gems as: Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake, Baked French Toast, Emily’s Poppy Seed Cake, Frisee, Hazelnut & Goat Cheese Salad, Melody’s Sausage & Egg Strata.

The devotionals  start with a verse, then a brief–really only a couple of paragraphs–devotional and then a thought or questions to help you journal your answers, or even just to ponder for the day.
