I recently had the privilege of reviewing another awesome Brave Girls 90 day devotional, this is the 3rd one in the series and is called “Brave Girls: Beautiful You

unnamed-9

The brave girls are a HUGE favorite in our house! My daughter absolutely adores the “Brave Girl Bible stories” book and wears her Brave Girls shirt almost every single day! She has also loved the other two 90 day devotionals, “Brave Girls: Better Than Perfect” and “Brave Girls: Faithful Friends” Since we know and love entire Tommy Nelson Brave Girl series I knew to expect something great and I was right!

This wonderful devo takes your daughter through the 90 days with writings from three of the brave girls Hope, Glory and Gracie (I absolutely love this aspect because it makes it seem so much more personal for the little girl reading it or having it read to her.)

During the 90 days this book strives to show girls that our beauty comes from within and God made us just the way that we are and we are perfect in his eyes. As a mother I want my daughter to be comfortable in her own skin and to know exactly that, that God created her just the way she is!

The Devo is broken into six sections:

  • Beautiful Basics:
    Showing us that yes we are all flawed but we are beautiful because of who made us!
  • Radiant Reflections:
    Shows us we are sinners but God loves us despite that and will keep helping us fight future temptation!
  • Works of Beauty:
    Shows us we are truly beautiful when we love and help others and have a kind Christ like spirit!
  • Beautifully Clothed:
    Show us that God can change us when we take off our old wardrobe {life without Christ} and embrace him our new wardrobe {life with Christ}!
  • Kingdom Fitness:
    This reminds us that our bodies are a holy temple for the Lord and should be treated that way!
  • Creative Beauty:
    Shows us that we are uniquely and beautifully made the way God wants us to be!

“Learn how Special God thinks you are and how you can be bold, brave and Be-you-tiful!” – {from the back cover}

As with all of the devotionals in the brave girl series each day has a bible verse, a 1 or 2 paragraph devotion and ends with a sweet little prayer.  We have absolutely love this book in our house!

This is a wonderful Devotional that I highly recommend Brave Girls: Beautiful You to anyone with a daughter/granddaughter age 6 to teen!

waiting, waiting, waiting…a little stressed…I will seek the LORD, great  is HIS faithfulness!

great is your faithfulness.

Book Review – The Beginning Reader’s Bible

This exceptionally illustrated Bible storybook allows children to read the story, pray to God, and grow closer to Him.

Using actual Bible text from the International Children’s Bible® as well as prayers, memory verses, and fun activities, children will love this large format and be engrossed in the intricate detail of the illustrations. Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments are included and stories are accompanied by a prayer for the child to pray, a verse to memorize, and a fun activity to help them grow.

Instead of writing only my review on this Bible story book, I want to have my 6 year old son join in and give his review as well…his input has been added to my review! 🙂

First off, I truly love this Bible, but as a Storybook and this is why…

What I liked:

The books is large and very well made, perfect for small hands

It is very easy to read, and uses actual bible verses. The Story of how God create the earth in in the Beginning Reader’s Bible is the actual text.

The book is beautifully illustrated.

Something that my son and I enjoyed that the stories were more than 3 or 4 sentences. They are actual bible text. He like that this bible and Daddy and Mommy’s bible say the same thing.

Something that we loved was the little info bubbles on each page…containing a memory verse, a fact, a song, or a activity. He love the activates, and the memory verses the best.

My son enjoyed being able to read along with me. He loved being able to read on his own as well! The fact that he can easily grab it a start reading it is a HUGE plus for me and why I am giving it 4 stars!

Ok, so what I wasn’t fond of:

Although the Stories have more than a few sentences, I would have like to seen a bit more substance *note some of the stories were more than one page (this are few, however), I am referring to the other stories that are a half a page*. This is supposed to be for ages 4-8, it seemed to be more of a 3-5 or younger ‘Story Book’ I noticed that my son wanted to hear more, so at the end of each story we usually ended up grabbing our family bible and reading the ‘story’ out of it…which he loved!!

This is more of a “Storybook” than a Bible.

So, with all that being said, All and all I do believe that this would be a great addition to your Childs library. It would also be a great gift for a non-Christian family member or friend with children. Personally I am happy we have this, but we will be getting our son a actual full text Children’s bible.

Reading level: Ages 4-8
Hardcover: 192 pages Publisher: Thomas Nelson (February 15, 2011) Language: English ISBN-10: 1400317029 ISBN-13: 978-1400317028
 
Please note that I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39
