My life is really busy. It’s chaotic, full of crazy and very often, it’s hard to find peace. I’ve also had many, many Bibles throughout my lifetime. I’ve had study Bibles and women’s Bibles and small ones and big ones and…you get the picture.
The Real Life Devotional Bible for Women stepped out of the mold for me. Short, creative devotionals are peppered throughout this Bible – enough for someone to have a new devotional daily (as the title says) and they are wonderful. In the first few days of use, this Bible overtook my other Bibles to become my go-to study tool. Along with that, several of the insights from Proverbs 31 women made huge impact in the way I view my day, my studies, and my responsibilities. I’ve already highlighted not only tons of verses, but made notes in the margins on the devotions too!
One thing to make note of is that if you want a study Bible, this one does not have a lot of space for those notes I just mentioned. I put most of mine in the areas with the devotions themselves. That’s a minor issue for me as I’ve partnered this with a notebook to keep track of my reading and thoughts. But if you’re looking for one place you can write everything, this may not be the Bible for that.
I also love how sturdy this Bible is. It’s a hardcover edition and that makes it a little more durable for me. (I love my leather Bibles, but there’s also some really nice enjoyment in pulling this one open!)
This is an absolutely gorgeous book. The cover art is amazing and it’s so beautiful sitting on my desk. I love to keep it here – that reminds me to open it and read it!
Two thumbs way up on this Bible. This is a perfect gift for that special woman in your life or a good investment for yourself if you’re in the market for it!
