About the Book
Author: Vickie Burns
Release Date: November, 2019
Priceless: A Devotional Cookbook Based on Proverbs 31 is a Bible study and cookbook combined. The author, Vickie Burns, takes the reader verse by verse through Proverbs 31, showing them how precious and loved they are. At the end of each day’s study, meal suggestions and recipes are provided to fill their homes with tantalizing aromas and great food. Even young children can help with meal preparation so they learn that dinner doesn’t just magically appear on the table.
For women who’ve read Proverbs 31 and felt inadequate, like they could not possibly live up to God’s description of the perfect woman, Priceless reveals that they have more in common with her than they ever imagined.
“Today’s busy mom rarely finds time to steal a few moments of peace and quiet to spend with the Lord each day,” Vickie says. “On top of that, she most likely does not take the time to flip through endless sections of cookbooks to plan a unique evening meal. Priceless encourages women to view their tasks as God’s call to an abundant life, empowers them by providing a daily word from Proverbs 31, and eases their minds by providing a full menu for the evening meal each day.”

Cookbooks and devotionals are two of my favorite kinds of books and this new book fits both of these categories. Author Vickie Burns uses Proverbs 31 as the basis for her cookbook/devotional and, as she opens our minds to what it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman, she also tempts our appetites with menus meant to reflect each of the special qualities of that virtuous woman. Each day's devotion focuses on a specific section of Proverbs 31 and she lists six questions meant to increase our understanding. I especially like that there is ample room to write down our thoughts and that Burns also shares the recipes for the food in the different menus. Who doesn't like new recipes to try?
We may think that we can't live up to the example of the Proverbs 31 woman but it is possible because all of us who love and fear the Lord have this woman deep inside us. God created us in His image, He values each one of us, and He considers us priceless! Hopefully, as I continue to use this Bible study, I will believe that I am priceless also!
I received a PDF copy of this book but I wasn't required to write a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
