Book Review - NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women


You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts. A typical day has come and gone. Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands—someone to help us find perspective. When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be. You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women. Filled with insightful daily devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, the devotions in this Bible will meet you right where you are, in the good days and in the hard days, in the car pool line or the doctor’s office. With God’s truth as the foundation, this Bible will help you maintain a peace-filled place of balance in spite of your life’s hectic pace. Features: The beauty and clarity of the New International Version (NIV) Bible, 366 daily devotions from the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God, Author biographies, and a helpful subject Index.


 Lysa TerKeurst is a New York Times bestselling author and national speaker who helps everyday women live an adventure of faith. She is the author of 15 books and the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, where she and her team encourage over 500,000 women worldwide through their daily online devotional. Her remarkable life story has captured audiences across America, including appearances on Oprah and Good Morning America. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and five children.


First of all, this is one of the most beautiful Bibles I've ever seen! The gorgeous, soft feeling cover will have you feeling so good! I felt like they really thought about what a woman would like when they did the cover. I just love it!

Inside is even better! The beautifully written devotions will have you turning your heart toward Jesus as these women share their hearts. I could relate to so much of what they shared as there were issues that a lot of us women share. It was so comforting to know that others share the same problems and how they turned to the Lord with these problems. I loved how they shared Scriptures that really spoke to them in the situation, too.

The NIV version is so easy to read and understand and is the perfect Bible for your set time with God. I also love the size of this Bible. It's not so big that it's hard to handle, yet not so small that you can't read the writing. I love the soft blue color they used on the devotions pages (making it easy to find them!), too. It's just a wonderful, beautiful Bible all the way around! It's definitely become my new favorite Bible. I highly recommend this Bible for it's wonderful devotions (366 in all) and it's beauty!
