The Book of Ruth is absolutely one of my favorite books of the Bible. I have read Ruth many times and I always find something new within the pages that I had not noticed before. When I got the chance to review “The Girl’s Still Got It” by Liz Curtis Higgs, I jumped at the chance! I am glad I did.
I have read a few of Liz Curtis Higgs’ books which include, Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible and I enjoyed reading them. I knew The Girl’s Still Got It would not disappoint me and it did not.
Liz Curtis Higgs has put a different “spin” on the Book of Ruth. You not only “read” about Ruth and Naomi, you “live” each moment of their life. Step by step you walk along with them on their journey. Liz Curtis Higgs does an incredible job of allowing you to live each moment of their lives and their journey with God.
She breaks down each verse of the Book of Ruth. She writes in such a way that you can see your life within the pages. Many times I would sit back and reflect on my life. Moments like when I first met my mother and law and how “scared” I was at first. How my walk with God has “evolved” from the moment I accepted Christ as my Savior until now. I related to so many aspects of this book. I saw my life within the pages.
I liked at the end of each chapter there is a section entitled “Ruth in Real Life“ where real women share moments of their lives which go along with the chapter. Liz Curtis Higgs also allows us a “glimpse” into her life as well. There is a Bible study at the end of the book which is awesome! There are so many parts of the book that I liked that I can not list them all. My advice to you is to buy the book and see for yourself.

As Liz Curtis Higgs so beautifully said, “Even thirty-two centuries later, her shining example of boldness and faithfulness still blows us away”. Yes, Mrs. Curtis Higgs, Ruth still blows me away and your book allowed me to walk along her journey step by step. Thank you for writing such a wonderful and beautiful book. Who would think a book of the Bible written so many centuries ago would have such an impact on many lives. It has impacted mine and I know it has impacted many others.
