We own WAY, WAY, WAY to many bibles.
I know that sounds like a backwards statement,
But it’s true.
I think if I stacked up all the bibles in one pile it would tower over my two year old.
It’s almost as if we keep purchasing them in HOPES
that they will somehow, by sheer volume,
touch our lives and bring us closer to God.
I believe I’d already said that we have the same misconceptions about cleaning products too….
more cleaning products = cleaner house
Of course it’s obvious that the missing ingredient to that formula is ACTUALLY USING them.
Well, today I wanted to share with you one that actually does get used….by our entire family!
The Illustrated Children’s Bible
By Tommy Nelson Publishing
It’s quickly become our Go-To bible.
The one that gets opened.
The one that gets read.
This bible sells for about $35.00 so it was a thoughtful purchase for us.
Actually,it was the first bible I prayed over before I even took it home.
I wanted so much to have a “Family Bible.” I prayed that God would lead me to just the right one.
Something we could all sit around and read together.
One that held a keepsake quality, while still engaging my young children. (CEV version)
