Daily devotional books are some of my all time favorites, I love the size. Devotionals generally pack a HUGE punch of everything you need for your morning. When I’m in a hurry I often toss a devotional in my purse and go (there have been many times when we’ve been running late and I have to rush to get the kids to all their classes) once everyone is settled I can sit in the coffee shop by their school and have “my” time with God!

One of my current favorite devotionals is Always Enough, Never Too Much: 100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding, and Start Living Wild and Free! This devotional is AWESOME! Let me ask you a few questions, have you ever felt like you’re just too much for some people? Yeah me too. Have you ever felt like you’re just not enough. Yeah me again. Whether you feel like you’re too much, just not enough or both you have two amazing friends in Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan who are there ready to love, encourage and uplift you. “Always Enough, Never Too Much” is a super unique flip-book devotional! Read the book one way then flip it and read it the other way! One direction focuses on “always enough” the other direction focuses on “never too much”. It’s like having two amazing books in one!

How I like to use Always Enough | Never Too Much!

I read a devotion from the Always Enough side, then pray, ponder & journal what I just read, the I Flip the book to the Never Too Much side and do the exact same thing. I like reading from each side because it’s the perfect balance! As women we’re always going through something and this book can truly help so much…no wonder the subtitle is “100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding & Start Living Wild and Free

We’ve all been there. We know that sneaking, small voice in our heads all too well—you’re too loud. Too quiet. Too young. Too old. Too unimportant. Too ugly. Too silly. Too serious. You’re not as successful as she is—look at her perfect family, look at her high-powered job, look at her great hair and size 4 skinny jeans. Why can’t you be more like her—be more in general? Why do you expect so much from everyone? Why can’t you take up less space? Ask for less? Be less? The lies track well-worn paths in our minds and our hearts, wearing us down and making us question our role in God’s kingdom.

What I’m Loving | October| Beautiful Word Coloring Bible!

bible3

With hundreds of inspiring verses illustrated in detailed, ready-to-color line art, the NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible employs the proven stress-relieving benefits of adult coloring to help quiet your soul so you can reflect on the precious truths of Scripture. Perfect for all ages, the thick white paper with lightly ruled lines in the extra-wide margins, provides ample space for your own artistic expressions and journaling.

The NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible is a perfect gift that will become a cherished keepsake full of personalized creative expressions of faith.

Bible Journaling has become more than hobby but a way of worship for so many, it is something that I personally have loved doing since I was a child. I so vividly remember someone at church gasping  when they saw me drawing and coloring pictures in the margins of my bible, I was told that I was being disrespectful to Gods Word, I didn’t feel that I was at all and my mom ensured me I wasn’t either so continued {at home}. As I’ve gotten older I have found less and less time to draw in my margins but I still try to every once in a while. Recently I received a email from Zondervan sharing all the up coming releases… I squealed with excitement! Eek! The Beautiful Word COLORING Bible! Guys this is tailor made for me…it may as well be called “Britni’s Coloring Bible”

My heart lept out of my chest from excitement when it arrived! It is a beautiful Bible, the illustrations are great and create a wonderful time of worship as well as encouraging your God given creativity!!

bible1

 {Here is a blank margin I did}

Inside the Bible:

The pages are thicker than the average but they are still “bible” pages so still thinner than say that novel you’ve been reading. I would highly recommend colored pencils over watercolors, watercolor crayons and markers I feel like they would bleed through and possibly cause a big mess, but that is my opinion. If you are using watercolor make sure you put a blank sheet of paper under the page you are working on and allow it to fully drybible5

There are countless “coloring” pages…meaning the out line is already there you just color it the way you want, there are also TONS of blank margins giving you the opportunity to show your heart, feelings and faith! I love both aspects, where creativity is often times my middle name…the Lord has not blessed me with 5-6 more hours in the day making it very difficult to draw in the margins like I did as a child, they take time, so the pre drawn pages are perfect for times when I just want quite communion with God but maybe I only have 5-10 minutes. The blank margins are perfect for kiddo nap time, after they go to bed or that rare entire afternoon!

bible2

I would recommend this Bible to any friend or family member from pre- teen to 100 {there are other wonderful options for younger children}. In fact I already got my mom a copy, it arrived yesterday! She has been loving the adult coloring books {ooh who hasn’t!} She is a true artist and is in love with this Bible! With a price tag of $30 or less this stunning Bible will not break the bank especially if you are like my family and on a budget!

Already have it? Do you love it?

via Zondervan: Features of this treasured Bible include:

  • Hundreds of verses illustrated in ready-to-color line art
  • Thicker white paper for enduring note-taking
  • Lined, wide margins for notes, reflections and art
  • Full text of the most read, most trusted modern-English Bible – the New International Version (NIV)
  • Easy-to-read black letter text in single-column format
  • Lays flat in your hand or on your desk
  • Ribbon marker

If you are looking for another translation the Beautiful Word Bible {non coloring version} comes in other translations including KJV and Large Print which can be found at Zondervan

**Q&A: After posting I started receiving emails about where the colored pencils are from {in the top photo} They were from TJMaxx but I have seen them in Ross too.

*Although BookLook Bloggers/Zondervan did send me this Bible I was not compensated  for this post.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.
