‘The NKJV Woman’s Study Bible’ Grow in the Word Giveaway

I know we all have our favorite Bible – the one we’ve underlined and highlighted, with all the corners dogeared and the cover fading. But when the time comes to replace your Bible, it can be a hard choice. We are fortunate to have so many freedoms in this area of life!

The redesigned NKJV Woman’s Study Bible is the perfect addition to your Bible library. Not only is it beautiful on the outside – the one I received is a lovely two-toned embossed leather, but there are several covers to choose from – but the inside pages are illustrated in full color, with a soft, feminine floral theme throughout. It definitely makes this Bible appealing to the eye as well as the spirit.

What makes this study Bible so perfect for me? Throughout this Bible, there are topical studies, charts, and details about each book. I love reading things like that along with my time in the Word. It adds depth and a better understanding for me. The topical studies are definitely my favorite. They make studying easier, eliminating the need for a separate book or app in order to find verses related to each topic.

While this in not a Bible that I would toss in my bag to take with me, as it’s quite large, it is a treasury of information and tools. I would highly recommend it for any woman that is looking for a new study Bible.

 

You’re invited to receive God’s truth for balance, hope, and transformation in the fully revised and redesigned The NKJV Woman’s Study Bible. The new edition features a beautiful, full-color redesign and poignantly reveals the Word of God with Scripture insights and the contributions of more than eighty women from a wide variety of ethnic, denominational, educational, and occupational backgrounds. Special features designed to speak to a woman’s heart appear throughout the Bible text, revealing Scripture-based insights about how godly womanhood grows from a woman’s identity as a Christ-follower and a child of the Kingdom.

This spring, cultivate your heart’s spiritual roots and enter to win the Grow in the Word Giveaway!

My Thoughts

This Bible Journaling kit is so much fun! I’ve used it in my Bible, as have my daughters, but I’ve also used the products in my planner and on my calendar. It is so handy to have stickers, pens, and colored pencils all neatly organized in one little pouch. I love embellishing my planner and calendar with stickers or little illustrations, so this kit has been great for that as well! The stickers are pretty, as well as super functional especially the alphabet pages. I love that there are two distinct fonts in the alphabet stickers, one more traditional and one that’s more fun.

{review & giveaway} The Afters: Live On Forever

I love music reviews! And I love sharing great, new music with my readers so let’s get to it —

About the Album

aftersIt’s easy to assume stories of trial and triumph are just for the Bible or the history books. But miracles still happen, even when adversity hits hardest. Just ask Josh Havens, guitarist and lead vocalist of The Afters. He relates how the band’s latest effort, Live on Forever, began during a season of tragedy.

Just as the band regrouped to record, Havens witnessed the wife of a close friend contract cancer. Drummer Jordan Mohilowski (who produced the new album) had a brief health scare, and a close companion in his church—part of the worship team—was hit and killed by an impaired driver. She was a young woman, Havens says, who had unlimited potential.

But Live on Forever–the band’s fifth with the Fair Trade label-still took shape as a celebration of faithfulness, protection and promise—one that shimmers with strong rhythms, undeniable energy and compelling pop hooks. The album finds Havens in strong, soaring voice as he invites listeners to find shelter and strength in God.

“We worked on this record for almost two years and over those two years, it was a real season of loss,” Havens recalls. “But in the end, Live on Forever is about moving us to trust God, to stand up against fear. It’s an ‘ante up’ record, an anthem for people’s lives: ‘God you are with me in all this. I’m not alone.’”

Our Thoughts

I haven’t kept up with The Afters music in recent years, but we have listened to it int he past and I’m so glad that I was able to review this album. Live On Forever has become our soundtrack while driving, with it’s perfect balance of good lyrics that I like and the driving, well-produced sound that my daughters like. The songs are catchy and worth repeating, unlike most pop music out there today. I really like The Afters sound, even though it’s not my usual favorite. It really is something that our whole family enjoys, which pretty much never happens!

The first single off this album is Live On Forever. You can see their official music video hereThe Afters also recorded some info videos, giving us a glimpse into their heart behind the song. But just read some of the lyrics first. They’re so good.

Dark days are gonna go away
They won’t have the final say
These bones were always gonna fade
Cause we were made for another place
The moment of our final breath
When all our fears are put to rest
Every tear will disappear
Heaven is real
