I am an avid routine keeper, somedays are harder than others especially as a work from home individual! But my day always includes one hour with God, either before I ‘go’ to work or after work and lunch of course. Adding Shauna Nieguist’s Savor book of devotions/journaling prompts has been a nice reminder to enjoy each day for myself and the blessings no matter how small. Shauna has really encouraged me as a home cook and a fellow sister in Christ. Also her recipes are *amazing* to say the least!
Her new book, Savor is 365 days of devotions for living abundantly where you are, as you are. Each day there is a short reading, a verse and a question to challenge your faith and help you savor the day ahead or behind. I listened to a podcast with Shauna explaining the process and her hesitation on this project and I think because of that interview I appreciate this book a bit more. I admit I did not read this entire book before posting my review…I do want to savor this book throughout the year…so I read portions. Like my birthday, my husband’s birthday, our anniversary and other important dates through out the year.
This book is not a theologically challenging devotional, it is more of a reminder to love and live each day for God and with God. I read it more as a journaling prompt devotional, if that makes any sense.
Savor has a wonderful quality about it. Almost heirloom like, the pages are heavy and and trimmed in blue, it has a satin ribbon to mark your place and the script is beautiful. This is a book to enjoy, and it looks gorgeous on your side table.

I love books like this that push you to question and answer your day. It sounds like a pretty book as well. I might have to look into this!
What a lovely sounding book! I was once told that it’s healthy to question your beliefs and find the answers from within. It’s good to be reminded to appreciate and love life. It’s definitely something that is so easily taken for granted and sometimes we need a little prompt to stop and remind ourselves of what is important. Thank you for sharing this post 🙂 xx
I haven’t heard of this book, but I like the sound of starting each day with a thoughtful question to think through/answer. Thanks for sharing 🙂
I love Shauna!! I loved Bread & Wine and read it last summer. This might be a great devotion for me because I already love the way she writes! Thank you for sharing!
I apologize if you get a double comment from me. I’m not sure what happened! I love your post and think devotions are such a great idea. I have been wanting to buy a devotional book for a while now. I think it’s so important to savor the moments and take everything in! Life moves too fast!
Nope no double comment, just this one! I love a daily reading, I am doing the 365 days of truth from She Reads Truth and then Savor is more like a little reminder to live each day to it’s fullest and the questions she poses are great journaling topics
The book is BEAUTIFUL! What a great idea!
And Possibly Dinosaurs
I am loving this book! Simple sweet and perfect for each day!
