Setting aside the Halloween holiday for a bit today, (you know your email, social media and local news is inundated with it anyways), as we all know once it's over the Christmas holiday season starts in ernest and I have 2 lovely gift ideas to share with you today!
This is the first:
Contemplate God’s amazing world with the Wonders of Creation Holy Bible, featuring ready-to-be-colored illustrations of the animals, landscapes, and other wonders of creation, as well as the full text of the bestselling New International Version (NIV) translation.
The NIV Wonders of Creation Holy Bible explores the wonders of our created world though detailed black-and-white illustrations—each one ready to be filled with the hues of your imagination. From amazing Eden-esque gardens to the creatures God made, this Bible features over 50 ready-to-color pages.
Review: As you can see, this lovely bible, has a generous overleaf, front and back, with additional pages for coloring AND doodling, or journaling. Then when you turn the page, you have this winder presentation page, that allows either the recipient or giver to color it.
As you can see, key verses are also included on the coloring pages! You also have a lovely ribbon marker, to keep you place. Most of the drawings have plenty of room, as you can see, for you to write your thoughts, questions, or discussions, about the quote on the page, or any other. Even though the book is aimed at younger kids, I really think that the way it combines the word with the drawings, makes it a great bible for anyone, any age, to use as a relaxing, stress relieving way of connecting with God!
I can't recommend it enough to give over the holiday season, with a set of pencils or markers, as a wonderful way to spread God's word, and to remind them what the holiday season is truly about!
