Have you ever known someone you’ve never met in real life, someone you’ve communicated with by way of letters or email and they felt like a close friend? That’s how I think of Liz Curtis Higgs! Yes, the author of umpteen books and speaker extraordinaire, Lizzie, is my friend. Let me tell you how it began! I can hardly believe it goes back almost ten years and it all began with, what else? A book!
Embrace Grace by Liz Curtis Higgs
It was a tumultuous season in my daughter’s life and she needed to be set free – I found this wee book called Embrace Grace and reached out to the author via email. Knock me over with a feather, she replied almost instantaneously!
Of course I’ll sign the book – just send it on and I’ll send it back.
That little book had such an impact on my daughter and she began her own journey of embracing grace and finding freedom in Jesus Christ! If you asked her today she would tell you E.G. was a pivotal point in her healing and wholeness in Christ.
Liz Higgs is one of my heroes – she is the real deal. Liz loves Scotland and has written two awesome fiction series taking readers on journeys through the Lowlands of Scotland, Thorn in My Heart (4 books) and Here Burns My Candle (2 books). It was safe for me to assume she had a favorite shortbread recipe – I sent Liz an email and by the end of that day she sent me a link and her blessing to feature it here on Tasty Tuesday!

Christmas and Shortbread are synonymous, yes? Be sure to visit Liz’s writing/speaking website here and her “Let’s Bake Scottish” site here. For your convenience, the recipe is offered below as a printable for your binder!
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John verse 2
The list of Liz’s books seems endless – but here’s her author page on Amazon, I do hope you’ll visit her and when you do? Please tell her former bad girl, Susan sent you, with this message, “May the Lord aye bliss ye for yer kindness!”
