Cute cover. My daughter loves it. At eight, she's a little young for the "Oh I get it" sidebars and "Dream Girl" devotionals, but she likes the "Is There a Little Wise Kid in You" ones and the sporadic quizzes. I like that there's a brief intro page at the beginning of each book that explains in kid terms what the book is about and gives some highlights. I love that she has the same NIV version of the Word that I have, so we can each read from our own bibles and have the same text.
This is a bible she can grow up with and love until the cover wears off. And I think that someday she will read those longer sidebars and devotional passages and really enjoy them because they are deep and thoughtful.
The deep pink with contrasting flowers gives this Bible a feminine look, and is eye-catching and frillyâ€”just the Bible a young girl would love to have! The contrasting light pink, purple, white, and black emboldens the title.
The red violet and purple writing inside are colors most girls would love. It's attractive and attention-getting, especially when contrasted with the different features interspersed throughout. All these designs help to catch the eyes and minds of young girls, with the goal to challenge them to read and apply the Word of God to their lives.
I especially love all the different features listed below, as they prompt a more active role on the part of the girls to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!
Here are the features included:
Book Introductions-Girls will read the who, when, where, and what of each book of the Bible.
Dream Girl-Girls will use their imaginations to put themselves in the story.
Bring it on!-Quizzes to really get to know yourself.
Is There a Little (Eve, Ruth, Isaiah) in You?-Girls will see for themselves what they have in common with people of the Bible.
What Happens Next?-Creating a list of events to tell the story in your own words.
Words to Live By-Girls will discover great Bible verses for memorizing.
Oh, I Get It!-Girls will find answers to Bible questions they've wondered about.
At the end of the Bible is a list of the following:
How to Begin a Relationship with Jesus
A Yearly reading guide (I'd use a pencil so you can use it every year.)
A List of Promises From the Bible
Perspectives From the Bible-"What the Bible says about"
Several pages for personal notes
The Faithgirlz! Bible has been written for tweens between the ages of 9-12. As a parent, I would love a Bible like this to challenge my daughter(s) to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!
A great gift just in time for Easter!

Girls will love the NIV faithGirLz Bible from the pink floral cover to the purple print. What better way to present God's Word than a presentation girls ages 9-12 will love and adore. Girls will enjoy the "bring it on" questions and the "in your own words" sections as well as the "oh, i get it!" informational tidbits to help learn more about what they are reading ,
The dream girl sections will fascinate and help young girls imagine Bible stories and passages from a new perspective. This Bible has the ability to allow each girl to make it their own and will become a treasure to hold onto forever.
Contributor Nancy Rue says, "I hope the Faithgirlz! Bible will help girls grow a friendship with the Bible." It's focus is on sharing faith with friends and offers girls ways to witness.
Faithgirlz is also supported with a website, Facebook page and mother and daughter live events across the country.
If you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece or other special young lady age 9-12 in your life, the Faithgirlz Bible will make the perfect gift and will help them grow into beautiful godly women.
