I signed up for this Bible tour because I have a teen daughter and I wanted her to do this one with me. We had so much fun - she went and explored the Bible on her own and then came back and showed me all the things she loved. So I will pass these fun tidbits on to you!
*"Mom, these highlighted verses are really GREAT ones!" Yep, they have taken the time to highlight verses that really show the gist of some passages. Great idea!
*"Look at these intros to each book....it's like all there in one spot...and gives you all you need to know." She is right - the intros are super. They are filled with info that our teens want to know - all at a quick glance.
*"The cover is just SO pretty. I love it!" Again, Zondervan has captured teen girls and their interests with a fun cover that is beautiful yet subdued. SUPER design!
"These pink pages are like they are written JUST to me!" There are blurbs throughout the Bible called "Growing in Faith, Hope and Love" where contributors have shared their thoughts and lessons learned that are so specifically geared to things our teens are feeling that they seem to hit home every time. They are timely and hit our girls right where they are.
So we loved this and would highly recommend it! We could both go on and on about this one but we will let you discover more on your own with your teen!
