It is with great pleasure that I announce my best giveaway yet! From now until Thursday morning, you will have the opportunity to register to win a Bible your early reader shouldn't be without, plus a faith-building resource that will enable you to expertly teach your child!
The Bible is the Gift and Award Bible. It's in a new version that will particularly appeal to early readers. The version is called the New International Reader's Version. It's short sentences and simple words, adapted from the New International Version (NIV), are easy for kids to read and comprehend. It also has a dedication page that's perfect for a "graduation" gift as your child moves up a grade this year!
Here's a favorite verse in the NIrV so that you can get the feel of it:
"'I know the plans I have for you,' announces the Lord. 'I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come'" (Jeremiah 29:11).
The second book is the Believe Storybook: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus. A senior pastor, Randy Frazee, who ministers in partnership with Max Lucado is the author. This thick, hardcover book is a unique and impressive teaching resource. Rather than being arranged chronologically, the book is topical. It covers core beliefs, practices, and virtues of the Christian faith. For each topic, there is an Old Testament, New Testament, and "Jump to Jesus" lesson, which serves as a bridge between the two.
I particularly love the "Jesus Answer" page at the end of each topic, which basically enables us to be good Sunday school teachers to our children! A key idea and corresponding scripture verse is identified as a takeaway. Parents will love how accessible this resource is, and children will love the beautiful illustrations!
