365 Pocket Morning Prayers

365 Pocket Morning Prayers: Strength and Joy to Begin Each Day  -     By: David R. Veerman, The Barton-Veerman Co.

This attractive little book is a great devotional.  You can use it as a day by day devotional or if you have something you want to pray through or about, you can turn to that instead.  Sometimes devotionals can feel overwhelming, but this was is not.

Each page has 1 or 2 days on it, with prayer and scripture that is written out for you.  Instead of going month by month, it just goes day by day.  For example Day 1, 2 etc.  That way if you start in the middle of the year, you don't feel like you are behind.  Each day is a new day.  If you miss a day, that is ok too.  I love this because sometimes devotionals can bring guilt because you feel like you are falling behind.  The format of this book, helps you not to feel this. The back has a topical index, so if you are going through something you can just turn to that page and pray and read scripture for that subject. 

This is great for yourself or as a gift.  Especially for someone who doesn't know where to start.

Thank you Tyndale House for letting me review 365 Pocket Morning Prayers.

Gratitude- A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal is a neat little journal that you can color, journal and pray with.  So many people are creative and love the new trend of "Adult Coloring".  This small journal is perfect for those who like to do this. The attractive cover draws you in and the creative pages keep you engaged.

If you like to doodle while you are doing your devotions this is a beautifully made book for you.  The little inspirational quotes, verses, beautiful pictures and prayers will help you connect with our God on all levels.  I would recommend this as a small gift, for someone creative in your life.

Girls Slimline Bible NLT

NLT Tween Slimline Bible, Fur, Neon/Blue  -

I was super excited to see that I could review this Bible.  My love for books extends to my love for the Bible.  With 4 kids, I want each of them to love reading, especially the Bible, as much as I do.  When I saw this Bible up for review, I knew it would be perfect for my 12 year old and I was right!

First, it was all packaged in a box and with plastic over it. I didn't want to even open it up, but I knew I had to, in order to review it.  The cover is bright and attractive for a young girl.  Proving that having and reading the Bible doesn't have to be boring.  I love the bold colors and the sparkles.  On the back there is a cross with the saying "Bold Faith", perfect!

The print is very small, which may be the only downside, but in order for it to all fit in such a small package, it works.  There is a concordance/dictionary, maps and a 365 day reading plan.  This Bible is a great resource. 

Although, The New Living Translation (NLT) is not my translation of choice I know this will be great for my young daughter to read as well as to share with her friends.  I know when they see it in her backpack at school, it will make such a statement that they will want to see what it is.

If you are looking for a great gift for a young teen girl, here it is!

Thank you Tyndale House Publishers for this complimentary copy of this book.
