Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!
Being single in America no longer is atypical. The latest U.S. census reveals more single/divorced/widowed women than married ones. Fulfilled provides what no other devotional Bible product can deliver:
1) The full text of the 2011 NIV Bible
2) Over 100 devotions written by single women specifically for single
3) Profiles of 19 single women in the Bible
4) A topical index of subjects important to single women
5) 200 highlighted scriptures that have special meaning to single women
6) Poignant quotations applicable to single women
Especially in Christian circles, singleness often seems an anomaly. Myths, misunderstandings and faulty theology can contribute to making the single woman feel like a misfit. This Bible will speak to the heart of single women and help them see their singleness from God's perspective.
The extras (devotionals, profiles and quotes) in Fulfilled are easy to locate. The Bible is attractive and utilizes a calming blue-green color scheme. Especially helpful are the highlighted passages within the text of the Bible; this highlighting makes certain applicable portions of God's word easy to locate. The indexes in the back are especially great resources as well. You will find a topical index as well as one for the devotionals utilized throughout the devotional Bible. These make it easy for the user to find a particular subject matter addressed with little effort.
I particularly appreciated how the devotionals were not strictly constructed to make the reader feel better about themselves, but that they were gospel-centered in that they help the reader to focus on who they are in Christ and how that is what makes all the difference in how they can see and deal with their particular situations.
Each devotional also provides a prayer prompt directing the reader's heart to the source of all true comfort.
Thank you B&B Media for sending the complimentary copy of this Bible for the purpose of this review.
