Usually I’m done shopping by now, however, this year I’m a little behind on the process! I still have a few odds and ends to pick up! I want to share the Sparkle and Change Bible with you for the girl in your life!
I remember getting my first Bible when I was in Kindergarten! We had to memorize a Bible Verse for each letter of the alphabet and recite them to the teacher. I remember the day I was ready to do it, I had so much anxiety! But I did it and she took me in the backroom and it was stocked with Bibles. I picked a cranberry colored Bible because the pages looked pink…pink has always been my favorite color!
The portion that sold me on this Bible was the “breakout” sessions, I remember having questions when I was younger and usually my father would research it and then we would have a conversation that usually turned into a Bible Study. Especially when I was in 10th grade when I attended a Lutheran School and had to take a Religion Class. I wasn’t a big fan of the private school life, and I went back to public school but I missed the Religion Class. And although I was raised in church, learning about Religion in school had more of an impact on my life than attending Sunday School each Sunday.
Little about the Sparkle and Change Bible…
“The ICB, the first Bible translation created specifically for children, is easy for children to read and understand with a third-grade reading level and is typeset in a large, readable font. The Bible text is set in ten-point type, with bold in-text subject heads that help kids easily find the passages they are looking for. Also included are boldface words that correspond with a dictionary and concordance entry to explain word definitions. A great new feature in this updated setting is more than 300 key verses that are highlighted throughout the Bible for kids to read and learn. The beautifully illustrated insert pages are in a style that children love and will delight their imaginations, including topics such as:
A Bible timeline
A presentation page
A place to keep favorite Bible verses
Articles on topics such as how Jesus loves them, knowing Jesus better, and how to pray, etc.
