HOLY ROAR Review and Giveaway

I am one of those people that likes to have music on in the background as I go through my day.   Anyone else?  I try to play positive music because I find myself humming and singing the songs I listen to even when the music isn't on and it just sets my mood for the day.  

I was super excited to get Chris Tomlin's Holy Roar in the mail because I like his music and I put it in right away.  I love it!  What a great album to worship with!!  I found myself singing along and worshipping while doing the dishes and cleaning the house.  I had to pause my cleaning to sing and praise God during some of the songs.  The songs are upbeat and focused on worshipping and praising God. 

I love the thought behind the title Holy Roar.  HOLY ROAR: the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship.  It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts.  It's every voice together changing the way we worship.

Some of the songs include:
Holy Roar, Nobody Loves Me Like You, Resurrection Power, and I Stand in Awe

You definitely want to get this album.  Here is the link for different ways to buy and download-- https://christomlin.lnk.to/holyroarQW

The ESV Illuminated Bible


In the Bible in Joshua 4, after the Israelites crossed the Jordan river they placed 12 stones in the Jordan where they had crossed to remember what God had done.  Joshua told the people the stones were "to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever." Joshua 4:6-7   


Like Joshua told the Israelites to do, I think it is important to look back and remember what the Lord has done in our lives and pass it down to our children.  One of the ways I have done this is by keeping notes in my Bible.  My Bible has verses underlined, important dates where God showed me something specific or brought me through something difficult, and little notes from things that have stuck out in sermons.   It is a good way for me to look back and remember what God has shown me and remember what He has done.  I hope to someday show our children and teach them how to remember and praise God.


One of the reasons I like the Illuminated Bible is that is has nice wide margins for writing notes or art journaling.  I have not gotten into Bible art journaling yet, but I know that many enjoy it as a way to express what God is showing them just like my writing in the margins does.



"The ESV Illuminated Bible places the full ESV text alongside over 500 elegantly hand-lettered gold ink illustrations by renowned artist Dana Tanamachi. Printed on thick cream-colored paper, the Bible's single-column text setting and wide margins provide generous space for additional notes, prayers, and designs—inviting readers to creatively engage with and reflect on the beauty of God's Word."

If you are someone who likes wide margins in your Bible or you are into Bible art journalling I would recommend this Bible.  The look is very elegant.  If you are not into that sort of thing there are other Bibles I would probably recommend over this Bible.

Here are a few links to find more information and/or purchase this Bible.

Once Upon a Time Holy Bible and Storybook Review


      With the popularity of fairy tales and Disney animation, and especially with the new release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast on March 17, Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full -text Bible that would resonate with children and families who loved those types of movies, and loved reading a great story.

      Zonderkidz wanted to capture fans of this genre, but introduce young children to the word of God, and introduce them to the great characters of the Bible. It’s important to note that this brand serves to resound the theme that the Bible is NOT a fairy tale, but every great Bible story happened once upon a time. The Bible is the ultimate Happily Ever After story!


The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible is NIrV version.  It also highlights 6 stories with colorful illustrations.  I like this version and the illustrations and highlight stories draw the reader in. You can buy this book wherever books are sold.





The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible is full of colorful illustrations to make the stories come alive.  Each story has a "Happily Ever After" section that shares a lesson to learn from the story.  For example for the story of Zacchaeus it reads, "Zacchaeus wasn't always a good person, but Jesus wanted to be friends with him anyway.  Jesus loves us no matter what mistakes we make."   It also shows where in the Bible the story is found so you can look it up and go deeper if you would like. This storybook is available at Sam's Club and wherever books are sold
