This beautiful hardcover NIV edition by Zondervan contains the complete NIV text. What is different about this one, however, is that there are nicely lined margins on each page of Scripture on which girls can journal their thoughts. As they read a passage, those thoughts, and possible sermon notes, get put on the page as they see fit. When they have read and re-read this Bible, hopefully they will notice how their own maturity and wisdom concerning the Scriptures developed over time. I love it.
I gave this Bible to my daughter (15 years old, so not exactly just for tweens) for Christmas. She loves it and I notice that she has begun bringing this edition to church with her. She is a great journal believer so I believe it was the right thing for her.
As for me, I have Bibles in different translations, the NIV being one of them. I am glad that my daughter has a copy that she can understand and that she WANTS to read. As an aside, I love the elastic that keeps this particular edition close and looking cute. (Posted on 1/7/2017)

While strictly superficial, I love that the colors happen to match the ones I just redid Paige's room in. She has a little reading nook so I love that this matches it!
Obviously there's more to a Bible than it's color but the cover definitely helped appeal to Paige! My girly girl was so excited when she saw it! She was even more excited when she opened it to find there were sections for journaling because that's one of her favorite things to do! I wish the lines were a little bit thicker because at seven, she still writes kind of big. I told her to just use two lines if it can't fit. These lines are in line with the print of the Bible.
In addition to being cute, the cover is hard which is great for wear and tear. The pages themselves are thicker than normal but I think could still stand to be a bit thicker if they want to write with pen. I told Paige just to use her colored pencils so the pen doesn't bleed through but she thinks pens are funner! There is a cute little pink strap to go over and hold the Bible closed that can also double as a page marker.
The NIV is one of my favorite versions and I think it's great for young ones to understand. There are a few other features like a presentation page to give as a gift and the "How to use this Bible" page helps explain everything inside.
The Journal Edition of the NIV Holy Bible for Girls would make a wonderful gift this holiday season! (Posted on 12/15/2016)

Zondervan has come out with several new journaling Bibles especially designed with girls (of all ages) in mind. The covers are just stunning. One is in turquoise and the others are in pink, mint, and purple. We have the turquoise edition and I love the whimsical designs mixed with just the right amount of bling!
The inside design is single-column Scripture with wide lightly-lined margins. It is perfect for the writer and artist alike. I find that we do a mixture of both. Sometimes a quote strikes me and so I copy it. Other times a picture comes to mind and I place that in the margins. There is a lot of white space to accommodate whatever your preference may be.
Can I just say that while this particular Bible is being marketed towards girls it is also appropriate for full-grown women. The cardboard wrapping does say for girls but it doesn't say that anywhere on or in the Bible itself. If you love the cover like I do and want to give it to an adult just remove the wrapping!
With the holidays just around the corner this would be a wonderful gift. Why not pair it with a set of colored pencils or watercolors? The girl (or woman) on your list will be thrilled to get it.
I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review. (Posted on 11/29/2016)

Whether its journaling some thoughts about something they just read in their Bible or its something they have been praying through this Bible is sure to be a hit. It is perfect for ages 8 and above. It is hardcover and has an elastic enclosure. Awesome gift for the young girl that enjoys to write.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 11/14/2016)

The only real difference I see between this and any other NIV Bible is the large margins provided. I like that there’s plenty of room for notes, or doodles, or whatever is needed for her worship time. I like that there’s a band to hold the Bible closed…and a ribbon to hold your place.
I would recommend the “NIV Holy Bible for Girls” to any girl of any age.

What I Like:
1. Hard cover with uplifting design that any girl/woman would love.
2. Presentation page so you can easily give it as a gift.
3. Easy to understand how use this Bible page.
4. Crisp clear font.
5. Thicker pages so you can craft your journaling or note taking, and lots of space to do so.
6. Easy to handle size
7. Sub titles in the chapters to show what the verses are about.
8. Clarification helps at the bottom of the page.
Things I Didn’t Like
Just one—although the font is crisp and clear, it could have been a little larger.
If you are a note-taker or journaling fanatic, or want to encourage someone to start doing so, I would highly recommend this Bible. Also I was recently at a craft show and someone had a Bible very similar to this one in which they had stamped and colored to enhance their devotions. I was so impressed with it; I thought this might be the perfect Bible to give that a try.
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zondervan, Z Blog Squad, blogger review program, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
