Inspire for Girls The Bible for Coloring & Creative Journaling



The Inspire for Girls Bible is a perfect introduction for younger girls into Bible Journaling. The Bible contains devotionals for young girls as well as plenty of art to color and space to capture personal thoughts about the scripture.
The design does a good job of being feminine without going overboard with the color pink. My teenager said that it has a nice ascetic but it's a bit large. I would agree that this particular bible is not for traveling so much as finding a cozy corner where it can live with supplies and be a part of a regular quiet time.
The devotionals and notes will age well as they are based more on scripture and life application than they are on the trials and tribulations of tweens. Which is a huge bonus in my opinion, because it doesn't mean that it will necessarily be found collecting dust as they enter into the teen years but will be a companion that will find them returning to time and time again.
My personal complaint is that I love coloring with markers and the pages are not thick enough to take art style markers without bleeding. I'm sure that the highlighting/bible journal markers will do just fine.
Overall, this bible would be a lovely and lasting gift for any young girl in your life.

I recieved a copy of this bible from Tyndale Publishers for the purpose of review. I'm never required to share a positive review but I'm always happy when I can.

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.
