Rise and Shine: Encouragement to Start Your Day

Liz Curtis Higgs, Author Waterbrook Press $14.99 (272p) ISBN 978-1-4000-7000-8
Christian funny lady Higgs employs her trademark girlfriend-y writing style to pen this daily devotional, which promises to take only two minutes out of a woman's busy morning to help jumpstart her day. (""Two minutes. No calories, no squat thrusts, I promise,"" wheedles Higgs.) Some of these devotions are adapted from the books Higgs wrote in the 1990s, including comic titles like ""Does Dinner in a Bucket Count?"" and ""Help! I'm Laughing and I Can't Get Up."" Higgs offers emotional support and words of encouragement from the scriptures. Many women will appreciate her candor, such as when she shares an old journal entry from a day she felt awful about her body, or discusses her perspective on recurrent midlife crises. Higgs's honest portrayal of herself as a woman who finds hope amid life's struggles will resonate with other women who cherish both her frankness and her humor.
