My "olympian"

This pictures are a little old but I wanted to share my girl's success. She hasn't wanted to participate in anything this big ever. So this first place medal is a huge success.
 Beat a girl in the next age bracket by a foot.


And two first place ribbons at the competition at school.

NIrV Adventure Bible - book review

This may be my favorite Bible so far. I enjoy all the different ways you can use this book for study.
The girls loved the 3D cover and all of the colorful extras and special inserts.

The font is easy for all ages to read. The layout is user friendly.

The extras are my favorite so far. The Words To Treasure are helping me with the girls memory verses this summer. They are placed in the chapter that they are found so that you can expound on the verse to help the kids understand them better.

The Did You Know fact section has been lots of fun for me to read. And they help the kids understand more about the people and the time period.

The People in Bible Times helps focus on the main characters in the Bible. This section helps add a little more to who they are in their story.

The Life In Bible Times is lots of fun. It helps explain why they did certain things and why they behaved in certain ways in the Bible.

The Live It section adds a simple devotional to this Bible. It gives you helpful suggestions as to how you can use the knowledge that you have accumulated from the Bible.

The book introductions are very colorful and show clearly the basic information for each book. It shares who wrote it, where it takes place, why it was written, and a list of favorite stories found in the book.

This edition also includes a Subject Index, a Dictionary, Maps, and some information on how to get the most out of your Bible.

My girls actually fought each other over who would get this Bible when it came into the house. I gave them each a turn to use it and share what they liked about it most.  The above points are the accumulation of everything we enjoyed about this Bible. I did not find anything in this book that would lead it to be only for a certain age group or group of people. You could give it to anyone for any age for any reason and they would enjoy it.
