NIV Bible for Girls: Journal Edition, A Review

I am thrilled to share with you this amazing new Bible from Zondervan.  I’ve been Bible Journaling for about two years or so and have found it to be such a fun way to meditate on scripture while allowing myself to have some creative time.  A few years back I read a book called, Writing in the Margins by Lisa Nichols Hickman, which started me on my Bible Journaling journey.

Around the same time I discovered Shanna Noel’s Bible Journaling Community on Facebook.  You can also find her website and blog here.

If you’re not familiar with Bible Journaling, here are a few examples of the pages I’ve done:

You can also check out a blog I wrote about Bible Journaling here.

Bible Journaling folk are as diverse a group as you can imagine – coming from many different denominations and backgrounds.  I absolutely love learning from these women and men and being inspired by their journeys and their stories.

So …this Bible.  It’s fabulous!  The cover is a beautiful turquoise with a gold and white circular floral pattern with touches of black and pink butterflies.  They also have a pink covered Bible that has the same pattern.  It has a sturdy hard cover and a beautiful pink band to use as a bookmark or to just hold your Bible closed (after a while of Bible journaling, this will really come in handy!).  The two-inch margins are lined.  If you are into coloring in your Bible, there is plenty of room in this one to do so and if not, the lines are perfect for taking notes as you study scripture.

I assume this Bible is meant for younger girls, but I really believe it’s age-neutral.  All of my girls have commented on how pretty the Bible is and how they’d love for it to be theirs.    If you, like me, love to write in (or color or paint in) the margins of your Bible, this would be a wonderful Bible to use.
