Thrive Creative Journaling Bible Review

This Bible was created in 2016. It is beautifully laid out. It is double columned with a lot of space to write or do art on the sides. There is a paragraph intro to each book with some references at the bottom. 365 devotionals and daily prayers are spread throughout. The cream paper looks beautiful with the rose gold lining. It is hardback with a pretty blue cover.

The only con with this Bible is the print. At 8.5, it could be considered small for some people.

This Bible would make an amazing gift for any woman who wants to dig deeper into God’s Word. I would definitely recommend it for any woman who wants to read it daily with the reading plan inside and the daily devotionals and prayers.

The Giant Print Filament Bible

I was on the launch team for the Filament Bible when it first came out. It was only offered in 3 colored bindings, one version (NLT) and one font size. They have come a long way!

First of all, I love the concept of this Bible. Being able to have a smaller Bible to carry and having an app that can scan the top of each page to get study material, devotionals, maps, and so much more is a great idea! I found the app to be very user friendly. It is something anyone can use considering we all carry phones or something technology-related with us at all times.

Second, are the versions. I received the NLT, but they also carry the KJV. This will definitely appeal to some people who only read that version.

Third, there are two resources included in the back of this Bible. There is a verse finder section, which includes numerous verses for specific topics. The feature that I love is the Virtual Overview of the Bible. People who are visual learners, like myself, will love the 14 different events in this section. It is beautifully done and it helps to put things in perspective.

The font size for the giant print is 12, which is a great size for giant print. The Bible I received is personal sized in black and onyx leather. It has a great feel to it and it is not as big as other giant print Bibles tend to be.

There are only 2 cons to this Bible. One thing is that the pages are super thin. It can make it difficult to highlight or underline. The other con is that there is next to no space to write notes. There are translation notes and cross references at the bottom of the 2nd column, so if you like writing in your Bible, you may not like the lack of space.

Overall, I love this Bible. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to dive deep into Scripture. Especially people who are visual learners and love the technology side. It makes having all of this extra material easier to handle without having to carry a 5 pound Study Bible everywhere. I received a copy of the new Giant print Bible from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.

Upset the World-Tim Ross

In this book and study guide, Tim addresses 10 different areas of focus in which Christians should be ready to “upset the world with the message, love, and hope of Jesus Christ” (pg.13). He does a great job of demonstrating what this should look like and why the world really needs us, especially now, to do this in each area of our lives. The study guide goes more in depth with questions to get the reader thinking about how this works in their own lives. I recommend this book to everyone who is ready to take this world, flip it upside down on its head and refocus on Jesus. I received a copy of this book and study guide to give my honest review.

ESV Women’s Study Bible

This Bible is so beautiful! It is advertised as combining the Women’s Devotional Bible with the ESV Study Bible. It has all of this and more. The artwork is gorgeous! Each book has a full outline, information for the reader and a small map to show what the area would have looked like at the time. The articles in the back are challenging and life giving! Crossway has done a great job making an already beautiful book gorgeous. I would recommend this Bible for every woman to get for herself or request it for a gift! It is absolutely worth it!!!

Fear Gone Wild-Kayla Stoecklein

I was captivated by this story from moment one. Kayla did an amazing job of guiding the reader through her story to the extent that we all felt like we loved it right beside her. This book will be an encouragement and a light for people who have been touched by mental illness and suicide. Reminding people that “God’s Got This” even during the most difficult times will change a lot of lives. I highly recommend that everyone reads this book, even just to gain a new perspective on situations such as what Kayla and her family went through.

Getting to Know God’s Voice-Jenny Randle

This is the book I truly needed at this time in my life!! Jenny takes the reader on a 31 day interactive journey to guide them on a deeper relationship with Holy Spirit and how to walk with Him daily. This book is a tool that men and women can use, gain understanding and learn about a whole different side of their faith walk. She said at the beginning of the book, “When you get to know God’s voice, everything changes.” If you are ready for this journey, grab this book and get ready! I recommend this to every man and woman who is ready to dig deep, grow more and be stretched further than you have been before.

Standing Strong by Alli Worthington


This is the book that God’s daughters truly need! Alli is so encouraging, yet straightforward about where our strength, value and wholeness comes from. She starts out the book with a powerhouse statement, “For Christians, however, a woman belongs in only one place: squarely in the center of wherever God has sent her” (pg.4). At the end of each chapter, she gives the readers something to remember, discussion questions and action steps. I believe this book is for every woman. They will find the definition of their true selves and where their strength truly comes from!

Focus-Cleere Cherry Reaves

Such a blessing in a small book! Cleere gives the readers weekly devotionals based on one word. She includes multiple verses and a focus tip for the week. I recommend this book to women who feel like they don’t have time to deep dive into a four hour long devotional time everyday because life is crazy. This book is one that can be reused over and over again and shared amongst friends and other women.
