    I'd read her grocery list. And that's saying something since I hate to cook. This book is gorgeous, inside and out.

    No one writes more beautifully than Shauna Niequist.That being said, this was a book of her essays, chopped down into smaller bits for a "devotional." Most of this isn't new material, but her wonderful essays that appear elsewhere like Bread & Wine and Bittersweet.Read those instead.Firstly, because this is not really a devotional. At least not enough to suffice for a year spiritually on its own. It would be a wonderful inspirational passage to r...

    I feel bad. I never do this, but I am abandoning this book. Instead of looking forward to my devotional "snack" for the day, I am becoming resentful and reading out of duty with a begrudging attitude.... not a good sign. First off, I really can't call this a devotional. I know what she is trying to do, but the material presented is not executed in any sort of way that convicts, nor encourages me in my walk with God. I love life applicable lessons...

    I was actually pretty disappointed in this book, as a devotional. It is just not enough for me, it's often not connected with the scripture, and it's so short and sometimes the point isn't clear. I do like the prompts, but even those are often not connected.

    Reading Savor was like reading a Facebook post each day.

    We are a gulping people —A swallowing whole, planning the next mouthful before the bolus lands kind of peopleWe’re that way with our food, too.Savor by Shauna Niequist is a daily flavor of the Word —A slow down and think about it experience of considering one verse, one concept at a time.Shauna describes the book as her “attempt at paying attention, at clearing away space and noise.” To facilitate this focus, she has arranged her writin...

    What 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...

    When I discovered Shauna Niequist in 2011 after the publication of Cold Tangerines, her writing felt like a "voice in the wilderness making straight the way of the Lord" (John 1:23). Her books helped me make sense of the Christian life in a new way with as many I thought it was just me moments as pages. Her lifestyle serves as one of the inspirations behind my brand's point of view and continues to empower me daily. I read everything she publishe...

    As reviewed on www.dineanddish.netSavor is a departure from some of my more typical shares. It’s also possible I am one of the last people on earth recommending this book to you as I’ve seen it all over the place in the past couple of months, but there is really good reason for it. This is an absolutely beautiful book… it’s not a sit down and read cover to cover book (although that’s what I did), but more a daily devotional about everyd...

    I loved Shauna's last book and was excited to get my hands on this one. It is a daily devotional with recipes spread throughout. Honestly, I did not read every single devotion so to be fair I can only speak on the 25 or so that I did read. Let me begin by saying that this isn't a deeply scriptural devotional. I found the daily writing somewhat lacking and not anything I could relate to. They are very short and to the point. I hope she will write ...

    I read from this daily devotional book every day during 2016. While Niequist's words didn't always resonant, some days they seemed written precisely for me on that specific day. All in all, this book changed my life. #TheYearOfYes

    This is not a devotional. It is a life coach. Skip the book and read your Bible instead. If you want a devotional that expounds on the assigned Bible passage, focusing on God's glory, try Moody's Today in the Word.

    Classic Shauna Niequist In a bite sized version.!Her books are like a bath that's a bit too. It's comfortable but it hurts a little. A must read!

    Devotionals that are perfect for this season in life. Short, but thought provoking. I love her honesty, passion and subject matter.

    "When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate, and when life is bitter, say thank you and grow."A devotion that allowed me to experience His love and peace on the daily.

    I was not as enamored with this book as I was with "My Utmost for His Highest". Not even remotely. This is much more geared towards married women with children. While I had several of the devotions that spoke to me, the book on a whole just didn't work for me. So many time I was reading one of them and was reminded of my own failed marriage and ended up in tears and I am pretty sure that was not the intended response. She IS a good writer though ...

    Great Devotional!A great little sound bite for every day of the year. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Shauna yet, then do yourself a favor and get to know her. Her writing is real and wonderful and like your long lost friend or sister is sitting across the table with you!

    Was looking more for a devotional and not so much this. Read kinda more like a short blog instead of diving into the scripture that she quotes each day. Very disappointed in this one. I never bail on devotions but I need more scripture and application of it and not so much short stories that didn't always match up with that particular verse.

    The packing box was weighty when the UPS man handed it to me. I saw the HarperCollins label, and my eyes grew wide. Could this be it, the book I had been waiting a month for? I quickly cut the tape and pulled the flaps open. There, among the crunched paper, was Shauna Niequist's "Savor."In the words of my Dad, "That book's got one heck of a cover." Indeed. This devotional is linen bound, and the page edges are dyed indigo. This looks like the kin...

    A book of daily readings, however long, is not usually high on my list of books to read and/or use in my personal time of connection with God. Devotionals, in my past experience, are often too watered-down or simplistic for my tastes. I can’t think of one I’ve read that I would recommend enthusiastically.Shauna Niequist changed all that with her book Savor: Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are, a collection of 365 devotions. (Disclaime...

    I finished this devotional book early to give to my daughter to use for next year. Not my favorite by Shauna Niequist. I felt this devotional was written with a younger audience in mind and wasn't as meaty as I'm used to using for my devotional time.

    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...

    I became a huge Shauna Niequist fan after reading her book "Bread and Wine". I love her style of writing and how honest and open she is. I loved "Savor" and am even more of a fan!This book is written like a devotional, and you can certainly use it in your daily quiet time, however, I read it from cover to cover in short order! I would definitely recommend it as your daily devotional because there is so much to enjoy and ponder in each devotion th...

    Savor; Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are by Shauna Niequist is a daily devotional, yet so much more.I read Niequist's book Bread & Wine last year and enjoyed it. She has a lovely way of writing and her descriptions take you there. The same carries over to this devotional - less preachy and more "conversation around the table".Recipes are included as well, "because spiritual living happens not just when we read and pray, but also when we...

    “When any of us mother – when we listen, nurture, nourish, protect – we’re doing sacred work.”Motherhood is a daily thing and finding a book that can give motivation and inspiration daily while on that journey is a wonderful thing. Savor is a 365-day devotional by Shauna Niequist that I used in 2016. I have read Niequist’s Bread and Wine book and have several of her other books on my to-read list. I enjoy her honest writing style.Savo...
