**Book received for review, all thoughts are my own.
It's no secret by now that I absolutely, positively love Bible journaling! Since starting a year ago, I have added multiple journaling Bibles to my collection, and my craft supply collection has quadrupled. I just love it!
But I don't just love journaling myself, but I love introducing Bible journaling to others as well. It has been such a faith building experience for myself that I want to help others find that creative worship outlet as well. Young and old, Bible journaling is the perfect way for anyone to enjoy their time with God. I even introduced my 9 year old to journaling and found it was something that we could enjoy together.
When we bought my son's Bible, I must say the selection of Bibles available was fairly slim. They didn't have any at all geared towards kids--- male or female! We opted to go with a simple brown leather instead. These days, we are seeing more and more varieties and styles that are perfect for EVERYONE! Today, I'm excited to introduce you to one such Bible: The NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition:
Lines on each page for journaling and notes Thick paper perfect for any writing utensil A presentation page for gift giving A “How to Use This Bible” page to get started on the right foot Ribbon marker The complete text of the bestselling New International Version (NIV)
Seriously, how cute is this Bible? There are a few colors available, but for this review, I received the pink which features a fun floral design on the front. These fun colors and patterns are much more appealing to many younger girls than what more traditional Bibles might. I know they say never judge a book by its cover, but I must admit, if I'm given options, I'm always going to reach for the 'pretty' one myself, and a journaling Bible should be no different. Inside is just like any other single column journaling Bible. Unlike other Bibles aimed at girls that might have sections that pertain to their age group, this one is strictly the Word with space in the margins for notes or artwork. This makes it much more versatile. I can gift this to a niece or a young girl at church, or I can use it myself. I may be 29 years old, but I still love pink and fun colors too and would most certainly see no problem in using this myself!
Young or old, this fun journaling Bible will make the perfect gift for any girl in your life! It is available to purchase now at your favorite Christian book retailers.
