I received this Bible for free as a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid, #BibleGatewayPartner, and was asked to provide a review.

It’s a BEAUTIFUL BIBLE!!! Beautifully designed pages to encourage the reader—

When I received the Bible I knew that I had to ask 12 year old granddaughter to try it out. Here are her comments:

She loves her new Beautiful Word Coloring Bible! She loves the beautiful floral cover and ribbon page holder. The stickers are great, and she loves that it came with coloring pencils. She is excited to be able to color in the Bible and make it her own! She likes that there’s an area to take notes on each page, and how many pretty, scripture pictures there are to color! She’s decided to take it with her when she travels to dance at her Christian recitals.

My thoughts

Great quality but the text and color pages are small. Sturdy cover, thin but durable pages. Paired it with a nice set of Twistable Crayola Colored pencils. I think this Bible is good for girls who love to be creative or have wanted to get into Bible journaling. This Bible gives them great starting point to explore this type of creativity.

I love how it allows them draw closer to God through His Word but also encourages them to be creative. There are all kinds of illustrations throughout the Bible. Some of them take up full pages that they can color, and some are only in the margins. It has plenty of margin space for them write notes or create their own designs.

As stated my granddaughter loves her new bible. She’s already colored some of the pages. Helps her to remember bible verses & teaching her how to take notes in it too. Helps her “meditate on the Word” while she colors. I love that it fills her mind with positive Truth. She has truly made it her own with being able to color throughout it.

The print could have been larger, and it would have been great to have the words of Christ in red but other than that I love it and so does my granddaughter. I would recommend it to those with daughters that love to be artsy with markers/colored pencils etc.

Child, I am not limiting you; you are limiting yourself. It’s My desire for you to great things; however, you put limitations upon yourself by not believing in My word. If you ask Me, I will remove those limitations. I will put a desire within you that will cause you to hunger and thirst for more of Me and increase your faith. This increase in faith will allow you to step out boldly and do mighty works in My name.

This is a new Day. It’s time to let go of the past.  I’m doing a new thing in your life, and it will lead you in a new direction. A new path will open up for you. This will be a path of heavenly blessings and will divine opportunities for you. Follow Me as I show you exactly each step to take on this new journey, and this journey will require your complete trust in Me

It’s time to stop thinking of yourself as a victim, and start focusing on the present and future. Stop dragging your past around with you.  No longer walk in your old ways, for I have new things to accomplish through you. It’s time to put on the mind of Christ.  I tell you, the old ways of doing things were for times past and will not be effective in the days ahead, you must get ready for change.

Newly Updated Devotional Embraces Silence and Reflection to Receive God’s Word


Description automatically generated

The re-released Special Author’s Edition of Shh! God is Trying to Tell Your Something has been updated to reflect the tumultuous nature of our current times and to remind readers that God is in control

For those looking for comfort and assurance in these uncertain times, Shh! God Is Trying to Tell You Something serves as an important reminder to stop, breathe, and listen. In the 2020 re-release of her 2014 devotional, author and minister Shearon Hurst offers sage advice grounded in scripture on the importance of embracing silence in order to receive God’s words of encouragement.

The revised book has been edited and updated in light of the global uncertainties that have impacted people across the globe in 2020. The daily devotional contains words to inspire readers with the messages the Lord has to share with them and reinvigorate their faith in a time when it may be faltering. 

“In the face of this continuing global pandemic, economic upheaval, and political unease and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to remind ourselves that God is in control,” said Shearon. “My hope in re-issuing this important devotional at this particular moment is that it serves as a resource to help comfort people in these trying times by deepening their connections to their faith and the Lord.”

Shh! God is Trying to Tell You Something has gained praise from readers and faith leaders alike:

In a voice that is divinely inspired, Shearon writes a daily love letter from God, cites spot‐on Scriptures, and then leaves room for readers to write how they can become better obedient to His word and thereby receive the blessings that were designed just for them. Two thumbs up for this inspiring work––followed by both hands held high in praise of the Lord Jesus Christ.”–Tom Siebert of Christian Editor Connection.

I come unto you this day to heal, restore, and to bring you closer to My presence. It does not matter how the storm may rage around you; I am The One who is always in control. You must trust Me to the end no matter how hard the storms are raging in your life. Always remember, the trial you are going through; this thing that has come to test your faith will end.

My child, trust Me, the storm you are facing will end. You must be ready to go on trusting even unto the last hour. I will make a way when you cannot see your way. I want you to rely on Me alone. Trust in My Spirit, not in what you see. Trust; fear not, and know I am able to do what I promised.

What is it, you fear? Do not listen to what others are telling you. Listen only to My voice, only My voice. Stand on what you know to be true. Do you remember the last miracle I performed in your life? How you marveled at what I did? You said, “I can’t believe Jesus did that.” But I did, did not I? My Child, I will do it again. I took what you saw as impossible and made it possible. So, why do you wonder if I am able to provide?

Oh, My child, I say unto you this day, please take time to reflect upon the blessings of the past, and do not worry. I have spoken unto the storms and commanded them to cease! That storm shall be no more. I am pouring forth upon you a sweet and gentle rain; it shall renew, strengthen, and breathe new life into you. Embrace what I am doing; do not resist. I need you to trust Me until the end. I will provide; haven’t I always provided for you? Trust Me the storm will end.

Read and Meditate on His Word:

 Isa 43:2  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 

Joh 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 

Psa. 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Psa. 56:3-4  Even when I am afraid, I still trust you. I praise the word of God. I trust God. I am not afraid. What can mere flesh and blood do to me?

2Co 4:16-17  That is why we are not discouraged. Though outwardly we are wearing out, inwardly we are renewed day by day. Our suffering is light and temporary and is producing for us an eternal glory that is greater than anything we can imagine.
