Journal the Word Bible Review & Giveaway

I sat behind a young woman in church a few Sundays ago and I was eaves dropping just a little.  As our Pastor taught a message on enlarging our tents from on Isaiah 54:2  I watched her draw in her notebook a beautiful tent with its curtain pulled open wide. That was the moment I understood Bible journaling. I witnessed how we can meditate on His Word in new and creative ways.

There is just something special about a new Bible.   Hearing the sound fresh of binding stretching as you open it for the first time, feeling the crisp pages under you fingers.

The beautiful thing about the Journal the Word Bible is as you study there is room for you to journal and create right next to God’s Word.  The large print is a wonderful bonus and the wide margins beckon your notes and drawings.  This is a treasure you will hold onto through out the years.

I am thrilled to be able to give one these beautiful Bibles away.  Comment-

Breaking Busy

I received this little gem in my mailbox this week –

IBreaking Busy Book. We don't always have to know  what God's plans are for us,   only that they are better  than we cou.jpgIf you, like me are looking for something that really speaks to stopping the busyness that can overtake your life and then honing in on God’s purpose for your life,  this book is for you.

Honestly, I was expecting just another time management book.  I couldn’t have been more thrilled to find that Alli’s words spoke straight to my heart in ways I did not expect.

Alli shares her own struggle with busyness as she weaves her testimony through out each chapter.  She is open, honest and laugh out loud funny.  At the end of each chapter she asks you the hard questions that lead you to take action in your own life.

I want to share one of Alli’s many quotes that pierced my heart –

‘I want to comfort you that you do not have to strive endlessly to be good enough or to work hard enough to find God’s plan for you.  If you stay focused on God, you will not miss your destiny.’ – Alli Worthington

Treat yourself to this book and Break Busy!  Then set your sights on God and His perfect plan for your life.

You can find Alli’s book at one of my favorite places:  Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington 

I received a copy of this book plus a book bundle from Zondervan in exchange for my thoughts and opinions of Breaking Busy.
