For us to do these things, we have to be people who love, know and walk with God, as we can not pass to others what we do not have and do ourselves. This of course means we are people who pray (check a post at this link I wrote earlier this month about being intentional when it comes to praying for your grandchildren) and who are faithful to spend time in God's Word ourselves, so we are able to have a real walk with God. So, today, I'm happy to share with you another resource which will help you with your walk with God . . . the new NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition from Zondervan (which they sent me for review).
NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition
Publisher - Zondervan
Favorite Features -
- New International Version for ease of understanding
- Single-column Bible
- Large margins, lightly ruled give you lots of room to journal, take notes or even draw your own verse art.
- Thicker, cream-colored paper is easier to turn pages and nicer for writing in your Bible
- Beautiful Italian Duo-Tone cover - the one I received for review is Orchid/Chocolate and it is also available in Blue/Brown and hardcover Black.
I really love this new Bible! I love the cover . . . it is available in such a pretty color and with the embossed flowers, it is just such a lovely Bible to study, write in and carry with you on Sundays - or any other time you are at church or a study group. (The brown and black editions will be especially nice for grandpas, too!) I especially appreciate the thicker paper; not only for writing notes, but with my MS, it makes it easier for me to turn the pages. I'd like the font to be larger than 10 point, but do appreciate it is a larger font than typical. Since I take notes in church, I am very happy to have more room to do so - in text! The NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition, is wonderful for your own use and truly does make an excellent Bible to give as a gift . . . maybe to a first-time grandparent, or to any grandparent, to encourage note-taking which will one day be a treasure for future generations!
I'm extremely happy to say not only did Zondervan send me one copy of the NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away on January 20, 2017 (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing, please comment below to tell me what you might write/draw in this Bible which your grandchildren will one day treasure . . . for me it is my sermon notes and Bible study notes!
