Resources for Grandparents - the Journal the Word Bible

One of our "jobs" as people who serve in the Children's Ministry, is to let parents and grandparents know about resources which will help them pass on a heritage of faith to the children they love. Today I'm very happy to share with you a resource - a large-print Bible, which is an excellent tool for the grandparents in your ministry!

You certainly want the grandparents in your ministry to be Intentional Christian Grandparents; grandparents who are focused about passing on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren. Grandparents who want to help their grandchildren understand how very much God loves them and how they can choose to make Him the Lord - or Boss - of their lives. Once they make this all-important decision, these grandparents are uniquely positioned to help them learn how to love, know and walk with God; both now and throughout their lives, so one day, they will be Intentional Christian Parents and then Intentional Christian Grandparents and pass their heritage of faith to the children they love as well.

For grandparents to do these things, they have to be people who love, know and walk with God, as they can not pass to others what they do not have and do themselves. This of course means they are people who pray (check a post at this link I wrote earlier this month on my other blog - grandma's cookie jar - about being intentional when it comes to praying for your grandchildren) and who are faithful to spend time in God's Word, so they are able to have a real walk with God. So, today, I'm happy to share with you another resource which will help them with their walk with God . . . the new NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition from Zondervan (which they sent me for review).

NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition
Publisher - Zondervan

Favorite Features -
  • New International Version for ease of understanding
  • Single-column Bible
  • Large margins, lightly ruled give you lots of room to journal, take notes or even draw your own verse art.
  • Thicker, cream-colored paper is easier to turn pages and nicer for writing in your Bible
  • Beautiful Italian Duo-Tone cover - the one I received for review is Orchid/Chocolate and it is also available in Blue/Brown, Brown leather, hardcover with fabric over board in a pink floral and hardcover Black.
Zondervan says; "The NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition allows you to creatively express yourself every day with plenty of room for notes or verse art journaling next to your treasured verses. With unique and sophisticated covers, this single-column large print edition features thick cream-colored paper with lightly ruled lines in the extra-wide margins, perfect to reflect on God’s Word and enhance your study. Excellent for a gift or for personal use, it can also be a cherished heirloom to pass on to future generations with your personal writings inside!"

I really love this new Bible! I love the cover . . . it is available in such a pretty color and with the embossed flowers, it is just such a lovely Bible to study, write in and carry with you on Sundays - or any other time you are at church or a study group. (The black and brown versions are sure to be nice for grandpas, too!) I especially appreciate the thicker paper; not only for writing notes, but with my MS, it makes it easier for me to turn the pages. I'd like the font to be larger than 10 point, but do appreciate it is a larger font than typical. Since I take notes in church, I am very happy to have more room to do so - in text! The NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition, is wonderful for your own use and truly does make an excellent Bible to give as a gift . . . maybe to a first-time grandparent, or to any grandparent, to encourage note-taking which will one day be a treasure for future generations!

I'm extremely happy to say not only did Zondervan send me one copy of the NIV Journal the Word Bible Large Print Edition for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away on January 20, 2017 on my other blog (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing, please check this link for all the specifics.
