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!

*I received a complimentary copy of The Woman's Study Bible, NKJV. Any opinion shared here are my own.
The bible I received is the imitation leather cover pictured to the left. The cover is very sturdy and the binding is strong. The dual tone cover is attractive.
The floral design is found throughout this Bible as indicated here as a border around the character profile as found in 1 Samuel. I appreciate that the profiles are not just simple profiles with basic information, but are concise snapshots with word meanings such as here in Hannah's profile. Her son Samuel's name means "heard by God" and the original Hebrew word is given as well, "shemu'el".
Also included in The Woman's Study Bible are charts like the one from 1 Samuel pictured here. These charts are very helpful in breaking down important information in a colorful and easy to follow format.
Peppered throughout this Bible are quotes from women, past and present. They are strategically placed near the biblical text to which they pertain.
Last, but certainly not least are the study notes at the bottom of each page. These notes are by no means an exhaustive study, but they do provide cultural background, some context and word meanings. The font to the notes are a bit small, but are still readable.
The Woman's Study Bible also includes a helpful full concordance and the words of Christ are in red. I found this Bible to be aesthetically appealing, but also a deeply helpful resource for any woman looking to dig deeper into a study of the Scriptures.
