A few years ago I read Shaua Niequist's book, Bread and Wine. I wasn't familiar with her before reading that book. I absolutely loved Bread & Wine and still consider it one of the best books I've read in recent years. I now follow Shauna on social media and was excited to learn that she was working on a new book. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get my own copy of Savor.
When the book first arrived, I was surprised at what a lovely book it was. The cover is a nice texture with tan and white stripes and navy and maroon text. The edge of the pages are also navy. This color scheme is consistent throughout the book.
Savor is a book of devotions for each day of the year. Each devotion begins with a Bible verse (or a few of them), a short message by Shauna and then some food for thought, if you will. What sets this devotional book apart from others is the addition of some of Shauna's favorite recipes.
I tend to prefer more in depth Bible studies over devotionals. However, Savor is a great alternative for me when I'm short on time. I love how Shauna encourages us to savor each day and our daily relationship with God. I would recommend this book to other ladies - especially those who love food or feel they don't have much time for devotionals.
