THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women – Review

Do you know how much God loves you? I mean, do you really have a heartfelt understanding of just how much He cares for you? Is your relationship with Him real, personal, and sustainable through good seasons and bad? With each passing day, are you deepening your relationship with Christ?

No matter how close or how far away we are from God at any moment in our lives, God wants us to draw nearer to Him. He wants us to understand that He is on our side.

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these?
If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
– Romans 8:31, NLT

He wants us to understand that He sent His Son Jesus so that we could have life and have it abundantly.

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.
My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

– John 10:10, NLT

He wants us to understand that nothing – absolutely nothing – can separate us from His all-encompassing love!

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us
From God’s love.
Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,
Neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow —
Not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
No power in the sky above or in the earth below —
Indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us
From the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

– Romans 8:38-39, NLT

Imagine that you received a personal invitation from Your Heavenly Father – the Creator of the Universe – the One Who Made You – to spend more time each day conversing with Him, reading and reflecting on His Word, and worshiping Him through Bible journaling and prayer. How would you respond?

Well, the good news is you have! Revelation 3:20 contains your invitation and THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women provides you with the place and space to do just that!

Look! I stand at the door and knock.
If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in,
And we will share a meal together as friends.

THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women offers you a daily place to retreat from the world and spend time deepening your relationship with your Heavenly Father. What I like most about this Bible – what makes it so special – are the 365 daily devotionals (written by Sheri Rose Shepherd) in the form of a personal love letter from God. Each letter illuminates a precious gem of Scripture and speaks God’s love and truth into your heart in an incredibly personal way.

Reading these love letters feels like God is infusing life into your soul!

Thrive Interior 7 - 80L

But these love letters from God are just one of many features that make THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women an essential Bible for every woman of God:

  • Visually, the Thrive Bible is lovely both inside and out! The creamy cover features a natural, shabby chic fabric with decorative blue stitching and a Thrive tag attached to the front and rounded covers. The interior features cream pages with black and blue font and decorative blue elements, a pretty blue ribbon marker, and extra-wide, lightly lined margins for Bible Journaling!
  • The Bible text is written in the New Living Translation in presented in a two-column format in 8.5 font.
  • In-text features include Chapter Summaries, In-Text Prayers, Daily Devotionals, Treasures Of Truth and Character Profiles.
  • Additional features include a Presentation Page, a God Is Your Faithful Father chart, a Topical Index to the Devotionals, and an Index to the Profiles.

THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women has quickly become one of my favorite places to spend time with my Lord and Savior. It’s the perfect place to record prayers, promises, and personal insights into God’s Word!

I encourage you to treat yourself, your mom, your daughter, your best friend, and anyone else who God may be placing on your heart to the gift of THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women and/or to enter our Giveaway for a chance to win a copy of this wonderful Bible.

Once you know just how much God loves you and you see yourself through God’s eyes, you will truly thrive in life – and THRIVE: A Journaling Devotional Bible For Women is designed to help you do just that!

I rate this Bible 5 out of 5 stars.

  3. GGMandy says:

    I’ve been curious about th is Bible for some time. And thrilled that it is the NLT.

      I’ve been eager to share THRIVE with you! The color scheme on this Bible is SO calm and peaceful – and it is by far the roomiest Journaling Bible I have seen to date for writing in!

  4. Robin in NC says:

    I am definitely ready to THRIVE! I really like that it has daily devotionals for those mornings you’re rushed but need to have some time with the Lord to start your day off right. Also, I love the journaling space! Beautiful Bible!

    • Create With Joy
      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      The nice thing about the devotionals, Robin, is that you can either go through them sequentially if you’re a day by day kind of gal or topically, in random order, as you desire if that’s your style (there is a topical index at the beginning of the Bible so you can check them off as you read them if you like!) As you read each love letter/devotional, there is also a “guide” at the end of each one to the next devotional which is nice so you never get “lost” in your Bible!

  5. Jeanette says:
