Raise your hand if you have more than 10 Bibles in your house? We do…and we’ve even purged so many! What do you do with Bibles you don’t need/want anymore?

Well, I have a new Bible to give to yall today. Its called The Prayer Bible and Tommy Nelson put it out this Spring. I think it is a good one for you to share with your school age son or daughter. The cover is neutral so it can be for either a boy or a girl. I know that is a secondary topic, but Bible covers are important! 🙂
It is a thicker Bible, but its hardback, so it would be durable. I think it would be more for one your child could use as they learn to do their quiet time. Maybe you could teach your child to have their quiet time in their room, and then discuss their thoughts and readings with them. This Bible offers many devotionals and Q/A about prayer. I’ve not read every single article, but they ones I read were really good and great for a school-age mind. Especially as they are starting out in their faith (hopefully) and learning how to pray.
A good tool in this Bible is the Prayer Article Index in the front. If your child is struggling with something in particular, they can read one of these articles. I wish the articles were listed by topic and not by title, but they would always be good to read. There is a verse topic index in the back. That’d be great if you are trying to teach your child what the Bible says about a variety of topics: like happiness, wisdom, and obedience. You really want to get to a point with teaching your child to understand the Scriptures that you aren’t just pulling out a verse, but i know you don’t always have time for an expositional sermon when talking with your kids.
Come along side your kids when they are learning to read the Bible and to pray. Its going to be a great adventure for your faith, their faith, and y’all’s relationship.
