The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a Bible addict. If you’ve read through my reviews you may have noticed that little tidbit already. My recent acquisition is The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. This is a New King James Version (NKJV) with additional texts from Max Lucado.

The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible, NKJV: Inspirational Applications for Living Your Faith


The lessons in the sidebars have great information and encouragement for interacting with the biblical text. I was reading in Proverbs and was tickled to find a reference to Homer Simpson in the sidebar. The lessons include: Situation, Observation, Inspiration, Application, and Exploration. There are also numerous study pages throughout the book that focus on a specific idea. New believers and old salty ones are all addressed with features and reading plans in the Bible.

If you are a fan of Max Lucado’s work then this is a welcome addition to your library. And if you are not a fan of Max Lucado, it’s worth getting because of the various reading plans and side notes about the text. This bible is one geared towards your spiritual walk more so than an academic approach. The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible is similar to the Life Application Bible, but with a more enjoyable conversation. My only complaint would be the thinness of the paper. As with most Bibles today, the text is visible through the paper, a small annoyance for such a great addition to the library.

  1. Just noticed this post. My name is Jeff and I'm actually working on this Bible with Thomas Nelson at the moment. If you're interested, we just released a free 365-day mobile app for both iPhone and Android that is based upon the Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. It's a an awesome little app and a great way to experience this particular Bible.

  2. JustBummin-I downloaded it to my phone, but it seemed to be a little sluggish. And the content was much abbreviated from the Bible. I think people would appreciate more content even if it means having to pay a little. Thanks for dropping by my blog!

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
