Grandparent's Day . . . Bibles!

While I'm a grandma and write grandma's cookie jar "for" grandmas, I'm very happy there are many moms, dads, aunts, uncles and others who read my blog as well! So, since Grandparent's Day is Sunday September 8th, if you are looking for some ideas for the grandparents in your life . . . check these!

I have discovered, as we age our eyesight can change. I wear glasses and sincerely appreciate large print fonts! So, when I had the opportunity to review a couple large print Bibles from Zondervan which they sent me for free, I was very happy to do so!

I've written a lot about the Grandmother's Bible from Zondervan (you'll find my review at this link), but think this is a great opportunity to once again say if you are looking for a great Bible for yourself or to give to the grandmas in your life, most definitely take a look at this Bible! It has 365 days of devotions and so many additional features - all focused on grandma and her grandchildren! What could be better? Plus, it is available in large print and in a lovely violet duo-tone cover! Makes a wonderful gift!

They also make a wonderful NIV Reference Bible, Large Print, which I use and love! I love the Blueberry/Melon Green Italian Duo-Tone cover, the large print on bright white paper - very easy to read - and the NIV version which is easy to read and understand! Plus for me, since I have MS and Lupus, this Bible is not heavy to carry! A big "plus"! It comes in other color combinations so it would also make a great Bible for grandpa!

One of the purposes for grandma's cookie jar is to help us pass on a heritage of faith to our grandchildren. If this is a purpose for a grandparent you know, then one of these lovely large print Bibles might make a great gift for them!


  1. Would love to have the violet one if anyone is listening! Sounds like a great bible for this Nana!

  2. Terri, it is a wonderful Bible! I gave several away in the first year of grandma's cookie jar - the one they sent this time I included in the prize package for the last grandma contest! :-)
