When I first began Bible study, I had a red letter KJV Bible that I literally wore out in my quiet time. As you can see from the picture below, almost every other word was underlined. I know some people are not comfortable marking in their Bible, and if you are one of those people, then that is perfectly understandable. But for me, when I began marking and taking notes in my Bible, that is when The Word came alive to me!

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 KJV



That is why I am so excited to to tell you about the Journal the Word Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishers! I have really enjoyed using this Bible for my quiet time.  It will lay flat when you hold it in your hands or when you set it down on the table.  There are lined margins to the side with enough room to write copious amounts of notes.  The beautiful heavyweight cream colored paper is perfect for Bible art or journaling. There is ample room to reflect on your thoughts while reading the Bible without marking up the text!



I love the fact that this Bible can become a cherished heirloom to pass on to future generations with your personal thoughts written inside the margins.  It comes in both regular and large print editions, and my over-40 eyes really appreciated the LARGE PRINT!


Another thing I love about this Bible is that it is hardbound with an elastic band around it. The elastic band can be used as a marker, to hold pages down, or keep the Bible securely closed.



This is an excellent Bible for personal reading, but would also make a great Christmas gift for someone special on your Christmas list this year! Bibles always make for great gifts and with Christmas just around the corner, I am so excited that I have two Journal the Word Bibles to give away. One regular edition, and one large print edition!

I would really love to put this beautiful Bible into the hands of someone who doesn’t have a Bible! Do you know someone who needs a Bible, or is there someone on your Christmas list that would benefit from this Bible?
