The Take Action Bible

The Take Action Bible

 I really like the idea of the Take Action Bible, a Bible that gives ideas on how to make your faith active.  There are many stories in the midst of the text of people taking action and some questions on personal take action pages, asking how you could take action in a certain way.  There is a nice concordance in the back and it is a very useable and portable Bible to take with you.  I also like that is NKJV, since that is what our family uses to memorize (our AWANA clubs use it, so we keep consistent).

I also like that Thomas Nelson has partnered with World Vision for a project.  God's Word in Action is a very neat site, one that I hope catches the attention of Christians.  There are three main areas of the site to Take Action, Get Inspired, and Share a Story.  You can sign up to get weekly Bible verses and a Challenge email.

 Bible Features include:
  • 48 full-color pages
  • 15 real-life stories show how to take action with God's Word
  • 52 Take Action ideas
  • Personal Take Action note pages
  • New King James Version® (NKJV) UltraSlim Bible text
  • Translation and text notes
  • Words of Jesus in red
  • Concordance
  • Bible reading plan

I was provided a free copy of this book for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own. 

    Heading for the Holidays: Thanksgiving With Facebook Friends

    I think this might be a really fun way to prepare for Thanksgiving, learning with the children about it.  Heading for the Holidays: Thanksgiving With Facebook Friends.

    Here is more info from the facebook event page:
    ~Gather together the month before Thanksgiving, as we enjoy the fellowship of using the Thanksgiving Unit Study together with our closest 3.300+ friends! :)
    ~Get ready to join in the camaraderie of this first-ever FB holiday unit study cooperative, where we will all share our discoveries and experiences as our individual families enjoy the month of November and prepare for Thanksgiving.

    ~Plan now to join us on the launch date of this new adventure: 10/31/11! Go ahead and purchase the Thanksgiving Unit Study if you don't have it yet, and check and see which of the books on the book list you might want to get from the library or order for your own library.

    ~This is going to be a fun experience, and we look forward to sharing this season of thanksgiving with you, our friends!

    So get your Thanksgiving Unit Study and join the fun :)
