I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I only have one functioning hand. Thanks to The Blythe Daniel Agency and Blog About Network I have a copy of Bible Basics to give away!
This board book primer is NOT just for babies. Bennett and Ainsleigh have asked me to read our copy multiple times since we received it. Bible Basics breaks big concepts down, but leaves enough content for rich discussions. The illustrations are beautiful AND the people depicted are not white! I appreciate the opportunity for my kids to see a more accurate portrayal of Biblical characters. I think Bible Basics is an important book for parents and grandparents to have.
To enter to win a copy please leave a comment. (US residents only) That's it! Like I said, keeping it simple. I'll post the winner Friday evening!

When I saw the page proofs for Bible Basics my first thought was, why didn't I come up with this idea?!
It is brilliant.
Teaching young children Biblical concepts is really difficult, but in their new board book primer Danielle Hitchen (author) and Jessica Blanchard (illustrator) use early learning and beautiful art to introduce fundamental Biblical principles to babies and toddlers.
Instead of counting cars, trains, animals, or other popular items the Bible Basics book cleverly uses numbers to impart Biblical truths.
The number 2 explores the 2 natures of Jesus: fully man / fully God
The number 8 explains the Beatitudes:
I will be getting TWO physical copies and I will be giving one away when they arrive! If you are interested in early Bible education for your children make sure you check back here soon for the giveaway!!
Thanks go to The Blythe Daniel Agency and The Blog About Network for the opportunity to review - and give away a copy! - of Bible Basics

See bottom for the winner!
This is my first time reviewing with the Blythe Daniel Agency and Blog About and I want to think them for the opportunity to review and GIVE AWAY a new Journal the Word Bible.
I've been using a copy of the NKJV Journal the Word Bible (KJV also available) for a few weeks now and I love it! We attend the Saturday night service at our church, which is much smaller than Sunday services, and on Thursday nights we gather with others from the Saturday night service to discuss the sermon and pray together. It's so helpful to have a dedicated place in my Bible to take notes since I know I will need to have them handy when we meet on Thursday nights.
I've also been using it for my Monday night Bible study and it's been so useful to have a place to write notes and comments I want to remember and keep close at hand.
My last Bible didn't have roomy margins so a lot of the pages look like this:
The Journal the Word Bible has wide lined margins so I can take notes without worrying about running out of room. You could draw in the margins as well if you are artistically inclined, which I am not!
The translation is requiring some getting used to since the Bible I've used for years isn't NKJV, but I love the wide margins so much I haven't switched back to my old Bible!
Now for the fun part: you can enter to win your own NKJV Journal the Word Bible! I will select a winner next Wednesday!
