I am so excited to be a part of the “I Read with Audra” blog tour.
I was given a copy of the brand new NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible for Girls to look through, read and review for all of you wonderful blog friends. I found the Bible to be a really cool and fun Bible with lots of fun coloring sheets for kids to color as they engage with the Word of God.
The Bible contains coloring sheets or lines for journaling and notes in the margins of almost every page of the Bible. Some young children used to textbooks might at first be “afraid” to mark in their Bibles, but this engaging text invites them to get out their colored pencils, markers, colorful pens and start personalizing the Bible, making it their very own, right away.
I have two young daughters who love to color and we have begun reading the Bible from the NIV at bedtime and along with this text, I can read the Word to them, and my oldest can read it to me, and at the same time be creating artful masterpieces connecting times that they read passages with other experiences that they can journal about or draw a picture to represent parts of the text they are drawn to.
I loved to see them leaf through the pages over and over to see the new coloring sheets and flourishes contained in the Bible. It was so wonderful!
If you enter the giveaway below, you too can get a chance to win a copy of the Bible and an 8-pencil gift set for yourself or a special young one in your life.

Using the accurate, readable, and clear New International Version (NIV) text makes the Bible accessible and easy-to-read for kids. The NIV is the result of over 50 years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, who oversee the efforts of many contributing scholars. Representing the spectrum of evangelicalism, the translators come from a wide range of denominations and various countries and continually review new research to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance, and authority. Every NIV Bible that is purchased helps Biblica translate and give Bibles to people in need around the world.
