Special Christmas Giveaway on November 11, 2015 - Bibles for Children

It is easy for us to become distracted at Christmas from what it is really all about . . . the birth of Jesus and how He is God's gift of love to us - the best Gift we will ever receive! So, Christmas is a great time to give a Bible as a gift to the children you love! I'm very happy to share with you reviews for two Bibles which would make great gifts for the children you love! I'm also doing a giveaway for one of them - if you win, you may pick the one you would like!

Faith Builders Bible
Published by Zonderkidz
Ages - 6-10

NIV Bible for Teen Girls
Published by Zonderkidz
Ages - 13-18

Favorite Features -
  • The Faith Builders Bible is the NIrV text for ease of understanding
  • The Faith Builders Bible has photos/illustrations made from building bricks throughout of Bible events - my grandsons really liked these!
  • Includes simple dictionary and list of great Bible events in the back of the Faith Builders Bible
  • NIV Bible for Teen Girls has daily readings from Bethany Hamilton, Annie Downs and more
  • Character profiles of women in the Bible, Book intros with info about when they were written, the main characters and key verses, promises of God and a concordance in the NIV Bible for Teen Girls
Zonderkidz says; "The Faith Builders Bible, NIrV uses the popularity of brick-building pieces to engage children with the Word of God. Includes 24 full-color pages of illustrations plus the complete New International Reader's Version (NIrV) of the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) in a very readable, 9-point font size." and "The NIV Bible for Teen Girls, designed specifically for girls ages 13 to 18, is for real teenage girls with real lives. Packed with daily readings, highlighted promises of God, challenging insights, smart advice, and open discussion about the realities of life, this Bible is designed to help teen girls grow in faith, hope, and love. The NIV Bible for Teen Girls is as sincere about your walk with God as you are, helping you discover His will for all areas of your life, including relating to your family, dealing with friends, work, sports, guys, and so much more."

I really like both of these Bibles - the Faith Builders Bible is a great Bible for young children who will be engaged by the illustrations of Bible events with building blocks and encouraged to read what God's Word has to say about these events! My grandsons found this to be interesting . . . and enjoyed sharing what they knew about each Bible event! 

The NIV Bible for Teen Girls is a Bible teen girls will be able to use to go deeper into God's Word. The focus of all the "extras" is to help girls, "grow in Faith, Hope & Love".

Both of these would make great gifts for children you love! I'm happy to say Zonderkidz is making one of these available for me to give away . . . USA only! If you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and would like to be included in this giveaway, which will be on November 11, 2015, please comment below to tell me your favorite verse and which Bible you would choose if you win - I have many favorite verses, but am currently challenged by Psalm 100:5 - For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
