Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God's Overflowing Gifts
Take a break from the daily grind.
The idea of a coffee break is enticing, isn’t it? Even if coffee isn’t your beverage of choice, you look forward to downtime, especially if it is spent with a friend who wants your company.
Jesus is such a friend. The Lord wants our company. He invites us to meet with Him in His Word. Just imagine what He has in store for us as we meet Him with our “cup”—our self—a vessel created and chosen by God, redeemed in Christ, and ready to be filled for His purpose.
Time spent in Bible study will fill you to the brim and beyond with God’s Good News. Sip, savor, and drink deeply from His Word. Receive the outpouring of His grace, His joy, and His peace!
For groups or individuals. Each of these seven sessions is designed to last approximately one hour. Included are engaging Bible study questions and answers, life-application questions, suggestions for fellowship activities, and seven coffee-themed recipes.
Praise for Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply
“Deb Burma once again takes biblical truth and shares it with warmth, love, and a healthy dose of fun. This Bible study is great for both individual or group study and the perfect complement to a warm beverage and a quiet moment. Filled to the brim with promises from our Lord, this book provides more than just temporary comfort: it is steeped in the hope of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Readers of Burma’s newest study will be reminded of the overflowing cup of grace given to them by their loving God.”
—Lisa M. Clark, writer of Blessings and Prayers for Parents and fan of a good caramel macchiato
“Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply is written in a way that seeks to meet the needs of many different kinds of learners. As an educator within the church, I see great value in the way Deb incorporates rich word pictures, deep discussion questions, hands on activities, and tasty recipes while guiding women on a journey to dig deeper into God’s Word and to savor the abundant gifts of God’s grace. While working through this Bible study, either individually or within a group setting, women will be met where they are, challenged to renew their minds with the truth found in God’s Word, and will most importantly grow in faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. So go ahead and take a sip—and savor God’s overflowing grace!”
—Stacey Holt, Director of Christian Education
“Anxious to dig into another one of Deb Burma’s books, I was surprised at all there is to do within each chapter. I was torn between wanting to linger in each chapter to savor its flavor or jump into the next chapter to gobble up more. This is a wonderful book, not only to fill your own cup with God’s Word but for the thoughtful questions Deb drizzles into each topic. Great for sharing in a group setting. There’s also a special Bible verse in each chapter to store God’s Word in your heart. Then, on top of that, each chapter provides an activity to share with others or to just reflect on the lesson learned. Now that’s not the end. I love trivia and each chapter taught me a little tidbit of coffee history or trivia. Finally, the recipes each chapter offers can be made for the group before they attend, thus creating another layer to this complex, yet, oh so tasty book. There is something for everyone in this book but mostly the words pointing to the amazing abundance of love God daily pours into our cups.”

“I am delighted to recommend this latest study from Deb Burma, Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply! Deb has a wonderful way of taking familiar coffee-shop imagery, connecting it to our daily lives, and pouring in the rich aroma and flavor of God’s Word to assure us of our redeemed identity in Christ and his abundant, gracious provision so that we can fully express the uniqueness with which he has made and gifted us. You will savor the richness of Scripture and the fullness of our hope in Christ. As an extra bonus of fun, you will learn a bit about coffee beverages and gain a few recipes too. This study is especially meant to be shared with a group and includes some great ideas for spreading the “aroma of Christ” through special gift and activity suggestions. Grab a cup, pull up a chair, and savor your time with Jesus alone and as you discuss with others. You’ll be blessed and recharged!”
—Diane Bahn, PLI Leadership Essentials Team and Coach
“Honesty, encouragement and Biblical truth drip from this study. Grounded in the realities of life yet abundant in the richness of scripture this study is perfect for a mom’s group or gathering of women. Each lesson includes questions for self-reflection and tangible experiences that point to the sweet truths found in the Word. Through rich coffee shop metaphors, Deb provides a space to dwell in God’s presence overflowing with grace and love.
You can picture, better yet taste the richness of God’s goodness poured out for you. Drink deep the love that Jesus has for you in this book.
Time and time again you are reminded of the good gifts lavished on you through Jesus. Whether you are running on empty, filled full or someplace in the middle this study will speak words of truth and refreshment to your soul.”
—Sarah Greiner, PLI Communications Leader

“I was excited to grab a cup of my favorite warm beverage and turn the pages of my bible with Deb. This is no surface level study! Deb includes a wide variety of scripture texts, questions, and insights to dig deeper in every session. She cleverly includes fun and relational discussion, recipes, and optional group activities to build community and to weave reminders of God's Word into our lives and the days between study. Best of all, every page constantly turns us toward our Gracious Savior, who is our Overflowing Cup.”
