I don't just mean I enjoy reading the Bible... but I truly enjoy collecting them too. There are so many great translations, so many great varieties (journaling, study, devotional, bibles for the mom, etc). With so many different options out there, there really is a unique Bible out there for everyone.
The love of Bibles for me started back when I was in high school with my very own Teen Study Bible. I loved that this Bible gave a deeper look into the Bible and how it applied to MY life as a teenager. The Bible is the same for each and every one of us, but our struggles as moms are not the same as those teens deal with. Teen Bibles offer devotionals designed with just that in mind. If there is one must have gift for the teen on your list this Holiday season, a great Bible should be it. Today I'm sharing one of those, the NIV Bible for Teen Girls:
Today's teen girl needs reassurance that no issue is too big for God. The NIV Bible for Teen Girls, designed specifically for girls ages 13 to 18, will do just that. This Bible is packed with daily readings, highlighted promises of God, challenging insights, smart advice, and open discussions about the realities of life. This Bible is designed to help teen girls grow in faith, hope, and love. It is as sincere about a teen girl's walk with God as they are, helping them discover his will for all areas of their life, including relating to their family, dealing with friends, work, sports, guys, and so much more.
- DAILY READINGS by popular Christian female authors including Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer), Annie Downs, Christine Caine, Nicole Weider, Elsa Kok Colopy, Crystal Kirgiss, Bekah Hamrick Martin, Denise Van Eck, and more
- CHARACTER PROFILES of women in the Bible
- BOOK INTRODUCTIONS for each book of the Bible
- HIGHLIGHTED PROMISES OF GOD are verses worth remembering
- A CONCORDANCE for help in finding verses
- The bestselling NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) of the Bible
And it doesn't stop there. The beautiful design carries on throughout the pages with fun features like Women in the Bible, or deeper looks into select passages to help teen girls grow in faith, hope and love. Each book starts out with a fantastic introduction giving readers the chance to see the when, the who and the what to give them a greater understanding of what they are about to read. Important for Bible readers of any age! Perhaps one of my favorite features (aside from the design, of course) is the topical index. This is something that I find useful even now, but did even moreso as a teenager. Dealing with peer pressure? They can easily look it up and find a selection of verses fitting for the topic!
This truly is a wonderful Bible that I wish I'd had as a teenager myself. If you're looking for a great Bible for the teenage girl in your life, this is certainly a must see!
