Starting off Small
Since this is something new for our family, I didn’t want to dive in with anything that might cause the kids to become bored too quickly. I’ll be starting off with a quick 10-15 minute morning bible study that we can do together.
Each of my boys got a faux leather covered bible. I chose the NIV Teen Study Bible for my 13 year old — it has slightly thicker pages than a standard adult bible and fun colorful page edges. I liked that this version includes a “Panorama” box to show the big picture of each book in a short synopsis. It highlights bible verses to help with memorizing and has Q&As in each book to help you retain what you just read.
My 5th grader received an Adventure Bible with a cool wave printed on the faux leather cover and my 3rd grader also got an Adventure Bible but for young readers. Both of these have slightly thicker pages and colorful pictures to help tell the stories in each book. I liked how these versions have a little dictionary section to look up words they may not be familiar with and like the teen book, they also have highlights on verses worth memorizing. Another great thing in the Adventure Bibles is the activities they describe to apply what you’ve read to your everyday life.
Next up is this gorgeous floral hardcover bible that I purchased for our 14 year old daughter. The NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Teen Girls includes thicker than average pages and wide margins for notes as well as beautiful drawings to color in which highlight verses for each book.
Just as with the boy’s bibles, I purchased a set of chapter tabs that are just as colorful to go along with this teen girl’s version. The pages are so pretty and my hope is that coloring in some of the designs during her morning devotions will help calm and prepare her for the day ahead.
