Lifeway Women's Bible Review #lifewaywomen #lifewaywomensbible #readyourbible

 



Can anyone empathize with me on my feelings here... 
In the above picture you can see the yellow (marigold) new Bible and the dirty well loved blue one on top.   I knew over the last several weeks that it was about time to start thinking about getting a new Bible.  I have a lot of wear to the blue one and I was ready to look at different translations.  

When my new Lifeway Women's Bible arrived I loved the bright marigold cover and was excited to dig in.   Then I was hit with mixed emotions.  My other blue bible is like my BFF and I felt so conflicted.  I would open the new one and felt lost looking for different scriptures.  In my blue Bible I know it so well and have notes and highlights all over it.   

So anyone relate to this?   There should be a word to describe this condition- New Bible Confusion!? 

So a few days later I have been able to dig in and find several features I really like.   I will admit I am using this new Bible more during our family devotional time but my morning time with the Lord I am still using my Blue Bible.   I honestly don't know if or when I will be able to make the 100% change to the new one.  

First feature I like are the character profiles.  I love reviewing the person and making sure I understand those things before I start reading.  I also like that this section has some questions to make you think and simmer on some thoughts.    It is a great resource. 
Next, I like the introduction to chapter section.  I really enjoy the timeline section as I do enjoy thinking about the sequence of events as I read.  Then they also have key verses which I think is a neat feature if you want to set a goal for memorization of scripture those ones might be a good option to get started.  

Another thing I want to make sure I shout out is I LOVE THE MARIGOLD color!   This color is screaming pick me up!!  I love it! 

One more interesting detail I thought was neat was that the books of the bible was written sideways.   I noticed right away as I was skimming to find where I wanted to go I was think well this is easier that they placed the words sideways!   What a simple yet effective little change that I enjoyed!

With all the good things there are still a couple other things to note,
1. I ripped a page right away as I was moving the book marker ribbon.  Not a huge rip just a little one but made me notice the difference of page thickness from my other one.  

2. I don't know if this is a good or bad thought but this Bible is much bigger then my other one.   I think I like the bigger size but more time will tell.  

One more really great detail!  I love when Bibles have little extra's hidden in it and the picture below is one of those moments.  There are great little application section of info that are little surprises all over the Bible.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
