You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts. A typical day has come and gone. Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands—someone to help us find perspective. When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be. You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women. Filled with insightful daily devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, the devotions in this Bible will meet you right where you are, in the good days and in the hard days, in the car pool line or the doctor’s office. With God’s truth as the foundation, this Bible will help you maintain a peace-filled place of balance in spite of your life’s hectic pace. Features: The beauty and clarity of the New International Version (NIV) Bible, 366 daily devotions from the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God, Author biographies, and a helpful subject Index. Lysa TerKeurst is a New York Times bestselling author and national speaker who helps everyday women live an adventure of faith. She is the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, author of 15 books, and encourages over half a million women worldwide through the ministry’s daily online devotional. Her remarkable life story has captured audiences across America, including appearances on Oprah and Good Morning America. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and five children.

There is a new and wonderful bible from the Proverbs 31 Ministries team called Real Life Devotional Bible for Women. Edited by Lysa Terkeurst and filled with 366 devotions from Lysa Terkeurst, Renee Swope, Wendy Pope and others from the Proverbs 31 Ministries team, this NIV translation of the bible will offer you hope and inspiration in your everyday life.

As you can see from the instagram photo above, this is a gorgeous bible. It is two tone teal color in an Italian Duo-Tone cover. I love the damask detail on the lower half of the bible. It gives it a little more class and girlyness (well, if that wasn’t a word it is now) than a plain simple bottom half would have. The size, itself, is perfect. It’s not a full size so it’s easy to take with you. I actually took mine on a three day trip via bus and had no issues with it. It’s a perfect bible for travel.

The devotions are the best part though. They are daily and are situated next to the verse that accompanies them. They meet your everyday imperfections with a dose of grace and hope. We all need that on a daily basis don’t we???

This would make a great gift for Christmas for any woman in your life that you can think of that might need a little mercy and a grace. This bible has become my shoulder to lean on. Having words from the women of the Proverbs 31 Ministries right there to read, in my hands, has become a great blessing and a time that I look forward to.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Bible cover itself is an absolutely beautiful faux leather. It's a duo tone of sea glass and an embossed teal. The pages are etched in silver and it has a matching sea glass colored book mark ribbon to hold your reading place. The daily devotion pages have an edge toward the center of the page that matches the darker teal embossed pattern on the cover.

When I opened it, I was slightly disappointed. The type is so tiny, even for me. On one hand, it breaks the daily readings down into only 1-2 pages, on the other hand, it's impossible for me to read it without the Bible being 6 inches from my nose.
When I requested this Bible, I did it specifically because of the devotions written by Proverbs 31 Ministries. I admit, I have been avoiding them. Proverbs 31 initially gets under my skin and as with most things that get under my skin, I either avoid them (the coward's way), or I hit them hard head first like a bull, and force my way through understanding them so they don't get under my skin any more.

I found the devotions were not as bad as I expected it to be in my head. They're actually pretty good. Although, will I be bringing this one to church with me? I don't know....its just so pretty! I'm afraid to get it dirty. (Posted on 10/10/14)

I have this same Bible in a hard cover format but it is bulky and not really one that fits in my night stand drawer for easy reading in bed, so when I had the chance to review the compact version is beautiful blue duo-tone genuine leather I jumped on it. My favorite color is blue and most Bibles for women usually are pink or the majority of pink – so finding a women’s devotional Bible in blue was awesome! Each daily devotion is alongside the Scripture that it is derived from, so reading both the devotional and the Scripture reference will aid in both an understanding of the devotion as well as a way to look at God’s Word and how it still relates to us. Each devotional also gives other verses to explore that relate to it as well as what page the next devotion will appear on, so no flipping around to find the next one.

There is also a topical index so if you want to work on anger, or if you need to figure a way out of your busyness, depression, going through trials, even quilting are just a few of the many topics you’ll encounter. The author index is great if you have a favorite female speaker or leader and you want to read what her specific devotionals say it’s easy to find what she’s written. The Bible is the easy to read NIV version and I use this Bible when I just need a good way to get into what the Lord is saying, I think my only complaint is that in the Psalms, Selah is only noted in the foot notes instead of within the text, this is supposed to aid in readability but as one who is used to reading Selah it’s sort of hard to get used to. That said, there is not an exact interpretation of Selah but from what I’ve read on the use of the word, as my children have asked in the past, it’s meant to be a pause or reflection – so as we read the Psalms and come upon Selah the Psalmist is telling us to pause, to reflect on those words.



As in most compact versions, the print is quite tiny – so if you’re like me and have a hard time with small print get out your eyeglasses or a magnifying glass. Okay, it’s not that tiny – but it is tiny enough that my glasses do improve my reading experience, but that goes for just about any book I read these days. The beautiful blue silk ribbon will help you in keeping your place and definitely adds even more the the feminine feel of the Bible – that goes along with the light floral design in the corner of the devotional pages. This is a beautiful Bible, and would make a great gift for a lady in your life, especially if she likes blue. The top part of the cover is a smooth light blue while the bottom part is an embossed darker blue (I’m sorry, I can’t remember the exact colors as they were listed on the package). The beauty of the outside of this Bible adds to the beauty of what is between the covers, God’s Holy Word that He gave to us and it’s one I’m happy to be able to put in my nightstand or in my purse.

**I was given a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given. (Posted on 10/2/14)
