The Beginner's Bible Review and Giveaway


     Reading the Bible as a family is important, but for little ones the stories can be confusing and hard to understand.  There is nothing that replaces reading the Bible, but I like that there are books with Bible stories that are geared for little ones.  It is a great way to introduce Bible stories and teach kids about Jesus.

You might recognize this Bible as it was first published in 1989.  This new version is redesigned with fresh new art!

This Beginners Bible is full of easy to understand stories and pictures.  Each story is a couple of pages long with multiple pictures.   If you have read my reviews before you know that it is important to me that facts are correct when the book is telling stories from the Bible.  I did not read the entire Beginners Bible, but I like that under the title of each story is the Bible passage where the story is found.  So you can look it up yourself.  You could even look up the passage and read it with the older members of the family to dig deeper.

Bible Journaling Kit Review

This past summer I started hearing about something called Bible journaling/art.  There are Bibles that are specifically made for this with wide blank margins.  I met a lady who had beautiful and meaningful art she drew and colored in her Bible that helped her study scripture and remember important verses.

My own personal Bible has many highlighted and underlined verses with a few sermon notes written in the margins or specific things God has taught me with a date.  

I was excited to get to try out this Bible journaling kit.  I thought it was a great idea to have a kit with everything needed to journal or draw in my Bible.
The kit includes:
·         4 sheets of word stickers
·         4 sheets of alphabet stickers
·         24 tab stickers
·         8 colored pencil twists
·         1 journaling pen
·         1 pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes

·         1 ruled page protector mat with tracing lines

My thoughts??

*I really liked the journaling pen.  It has a fine tip and was easy to write with.

*I liked the look of the stickers and the phrases on them.  Maybe it is just personal preference, but I will not use them in my Bible.  I just can't bring myself to put stickers on the pages of my Bible!  I will use them other ways.

*The colored pencils are twistable so they do not need to be sharpened, but I found them flimsy and hard to color with.  The "lead" inside felt like it was bending as I pressed down and it was hard to draw with them.

*The pouch to hold everything is nice.  My Bible has a soft cover so I did not try it out, but I like the idea.

*Overall, I would not recommend this kit.  I will use some parts of it, but I do not think it is worth the price.  

This is just my opinion.  I am sure there are others who really like this kit and will get a lot of use out of it.

Baby, Baby! Book Review and Giveaway

I have another super cute book to share with you.  This one is a mirror board book.

I had to get a few young reviewers to help me out for this one.  The 2 and 4 year old girls both liked this book and think others should read it too! :)

This really is such a cute book.  A few words on each page, rhyming phrases, and a reminder that God loves Baby (and everyone).  The last page is a mirror page to show who God loves. :)

Here were a few favorite pages:



You can find this book on Amazon
