Although my girls aren’t teens yet, they are quickly approaching that age and I’ve been thinking about ways to engage them more in Bible studies and reading their Bible. I was excited for the opportunity to review The NIV Bible for Teen Girls, Growing in Faith, Hope, Love. This gave me a chance to look at something that could possibly be perfect for my girls.
After looking through the book, not only do I want one for each of my girls, I want one for myself. There are daily readings through out the Bible written by prominent Christian women in this day and age. Women such as Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer), Annie Downs , Christine Caine and many more. Each book of the Bible has a list of who is in it and throughout that book we meet the women of the Bible. They also highlighted verses that would be key to memorize. The daily readings address common issues from being a teen girl, as well as talking about life lessons that can be learned. At the end of the Bible there is a word reference, for easy look up on topics that may interest my daughters, as well as a concordance.
I really love the layout of this version of the Bible. The studies fit into each book of the Bible and learning more about the women of the Bible really helps make them more relevant to today.
My girls are ages 9 & 6 and I don’t think they’re ready for this study by themselves. I may read a few with them. For now I’m using this Bible for my own studies. The things I learn here will help with with my girls now and in the very near future.
