Review: Everyday Matters Bible for Women New Living Translation


 I don't know about you but as a wife and mother my day to day life lately seems like it has me bound around the neck. I know that is a harsh way of putting it but it is the truth. We homeschool and just recently my husband was switched to the night shift. So between trying to get my own personal particulars in such as daily exercise & Bible time. And trying to my chores done and make sure the kids get theirs done. All the while trying to be quiet so daddy can sleep to say it is stressful is an understatement. So when I got the chance to review the Everyday Matters Bible for Women, I thought I sure hope I can work this in. But as we all know everything in God's perfect timing.

 But as I started to look through it and seen all the new things that it had to offer I was amazed and just the look of it made me feel a little better about my day. There was one entry made by Kay Warren about Your Calling May Change and that one sort of "got me where I was at." She was talking about how moms of young children feel limited and that how we may want to do something else with our other gifts. But as hard as that feeling of staying put is. That we need to cherish these moments with our children because they only last a season. Yeah, that one kind of made me want to tuck my tail and run.
 This Bible is made for us ladies! It has all kinds of neat little things to help us and encourage us. Here are just a few of my favorite highlights:

There are 24 different spiritual practice icons that help you focus on the things that matter to you most such as forgiveness, service, and prayer,etc.

Then there are different women from the Bible profiled that may fall under each one of those spiritual practices. 

Also there were many contributors that offered words of encouragement throughout.

And there are many more attributes these are just a few.......

 I believe my favorite part of this newer edition is where the various women of the Bible are highlighted. I always felt that these women that are featured in the Bible they are far superior to me. But they are a lot like the women of today. They shared in the same struggles we do. That is why I believe they are used as examples. This Bible has a beautiful, serene cover and dust jacket. It has an encouraging word along with our Father's words. How could we not want to spend our daily time with the Lord?
