I'm a Max Lucado fan, I admit it. Reading his work has always inspired me. This book is no exception! I found it to be insightful, comforting, informative, and hopeful. He has covered a lot of tough questions with a GOD- focused answer to each! I readily recommend this book to my firends and family!!

Book Review - Girl's Pink Sequin Holy Bible

Book Description
A fun sparkly and shiny Bible for little girls embellished with sequins…Cute to carry and easy to read!
A full sized Bible in the International Children’s Bible® translation, the Bible kids can read and understand! This adorable Bible is bound in floral fabric and embellished with shiny sparkly sequins! The cover will invite other little girls to ask "what kind of Bible is that?" and the owner can show her sparkly shiny Bible, thus sharing the "light" of Jesus. Inside, the Bible will have four sweet full color presentation pages in the front, a dictionary/concordance in the back, and the full texts of the Old and New Testaments.
Now your little girl can enjoy having a fun sparkly Bible to take to church and Sunday School.
 I was recently given this adorable, very sweet girly, pink sequin, Holy Bible to review by Thomas Nelson Publishing ( I was so excited to review this Bible, I thought it would be perfect to share God's wonderful Word with my small Granddaughter! She is like me and Loves all things sparkly and shiny. This is not a surprise, when her mother, my youngest daughter was small she had sequin headbands that she referred to as her "Pretty Girl" so, it is only right and true that at such a young age my granddaughter is in love the "Pretty Girl" things!
My daughter and her family always come over on Saturday's, so I had hopped that the bible would come either Friday or Saturday. I was thrilled when I went to the mailbox Friday and there it was.
Saturday morning when my granddaughter arrived I couldn't wait to share it with her. She was so excited when she saw all the sparkles! She sat on my lap and we read a little in Esther. She was very excited to take it with her as well, so was her mom, who told me "Gosh Mom, I wish that was my Bible"
My Sweet little Granddaughter now has a beautiful Bible to read God's word, and grow closer to Jesus, this couldn't make a Grandma Happier!
I would highly recommend this book to parents or grandparents who have a little princess they want to make feel specular! The Bible would make a wonderful, Christmas, Easter, or baptism gift!
