More About the Author

Liz Curtis Higgs admits, "My goal is simple: to help women embrace the grace of God with joy and abandon!"

Her latest release, It's Good to Be Queen, encourages readers to become as bold, gracious, and wise as the queen of Sheba, who journeyed across the desert to test the mind and heart of King Solomon.

In her best-selling series of Bad Girls of the Bible books and videos, Liz breathes new life into ancient tales about the most infamous--and intriguing--women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Mary Magdalene. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, these popular titles have helped more than one million women around the world experience God's grace anew.

Liz also offers a twenty-first century take on the book of Ruth in The Girl's Still Got It, dishing out meat and milk, substance and style, in a highly readable, always entertaining, and deeply personal journey.

And you'll find a heartwarming Bible study wrapped inside a beautiful gift book with The Women of Christmas. Verse by verse, Liz unwraps the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, who each welcome the Christ child into the world in a marvelous and miraculous way.

Liz's award-winning historical novels, which transport the stories of Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Dinah, Ruth, and Naomi to eighteenth-century Scotland, also invite readers to view these familiar biblical characters in a new light.

According to Publishers Weekly, "Higgs is a stickler for period authenticity." To that end, Liz has traveled sixteen times to Scotland, the setting for her novels, and has filled her shelves with nearly one thousand resource books about Scottish history and culture.

Also a gifted professional speaker, Liz has presented more than 1,700 inspirational programs for audiences in all fifty United States and fourteen foreign countries. When the National Speakers Association honored her with the Council of Peers Award for Excellence, Liz became one of only 35 women in the world named to their CPAE-Speaker Hall of Fame.

On the personal side, Liz is married to Bill Higgs, Ph.D., who serves as Director of Operations for her speaking and writing office. Liz and Bill enjoy their old Kentucky home, a nineteenth-century farmhouse in Louisville, and are the proud (and relieved) parents of two college grads.

"I have three abiding passions: encouraging my sisters in Christ, exploring the stories of women in the Bible, and writing novels set in Scotland of old. When I'm not traveling, speaking, or spinning a story, I connect with readers online, take copious photos, read historical novels, watch period films, and immerse myself in research--the more books, the merrier. I'm a lame housekeeper, a marginal cook, and a mediocre gardener, but home is still my favorite place to land."

This book is hysterical! Real life is better than fiction, and in this case, a lot funnier! A compilation of funny stories and anecdotes from people across the country, dotted with a few true adventures from Liz's life. Help! is sure to tickle your funny bone, and reading it is a great way to spend an afternoon.

i actually bought this bc at the time my sister was battling breast cancer and going thru chemo and radiation .. but bc it was laughter, i wanted to send her something that would pick up her spirits and give her some joy .. she loved it! and has shared it with so many people, who were battling this disease at the same time she was .. she is a survivor of 5 plus yrs now .. i would give this book 10 stars if i could bc i feel it gave not only my sister but so many who needed at the time, many hrs of enjoyment and happiness and i feel that maybe this helped them in their fight against this horrible disease .. they say laughter is the best medicine and i firmly believe that ..
this is a must have for anyone who needs a good laugh .. or to be able to smile and enjoy the simplest pleasures ..
to be happy and to laugh is a good thing ..

Not what I was expecting. I was expecting a book that would have me chuckling while I read it. I got it, it had it's funny moments, but was more focused on how living with laughter is a good thing and the healing that laughter brings. Was probably right on when the book was first published, but a little outdated for 2013. I still enjoyed reading it though.

I realize what makes a joke funny has a lot to do with personal taste. I never expected to like every story in this book. Unfortunately, I ended up liking very few. Based on earlier reviews and the promise on the cover of "fall-down funny stories to fill your heart and lift your spirit" I had high expectations. I was very disappointed. I kept reading more waiting to laugh. I never did.

This book helped relieve my boredom because it was something to read. That was all. I do not recommend it. Funny stories are hard to write, but there are better books out there that will really make you laugh and smile.

I have another Liz recording and have enjoyed it for years. Even called them to ask permission to show at church. When I decided to purchase another video I saw reviews about this one. I must say it was a "let down" compared to the other. This video is more of a teaching video. The other had humorous stories Liz was one of my wife's inspirations to become a Christian Humorist -- telling funny life situation stories that end with with a life changing message.
