NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women


NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible (Compact)


Lysa TerKeurst/Proverbs 31 Ministries


About this Bible:


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.


About the Writers:


Lysa TerKeurst is the New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave and Unglued. She isn’t shy about admitting what a mess she can be. But she’s been learning God’s lessons and sharing them on her blog ( and in her books. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and writes from her sticky farm table in North Carolina where she lives with her husband, Art, five kids, three dogs, and mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen.


My Review:


I absolutely love Lysa TerKeurst and Proverbs 31 Ministries and when I seen they have teamed up with NIV Bible to come out with the Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women with devotions written by the writers from Proverbs 31, I couldn’t wait to get it. I purchased the regular size Bible shortly after it was released and it is my favorite NIV!! I take it everywhere!! When I received the compact version to review, I was happy and I could carry this one in my pocket book because its smaller.

This Bible has some wonderful features such as: The beauty and clarity of the New International Version (NIV) Bible, 366 daily devotions from the women of Proverbs 31 Ministries inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God, Author Biographies, and A helpful subject index. One thing that I love is that even though the devotions are numbered, you don’t have to read them in order. You could start with devotion number 226 and then go to devotion 1.


This Bible is Italian Duo-Tone in Sea Glass/Caribbean Blue, its dimensions are 7.9 x 5.5 x 1.6 inches. The only flaw I had with this Bible is how small the text is, perfect for someone who has great eyesight. This Bible is perfect for the young lady going to college, entering high school, getting married or any lady!! You definitely will not be disappointed with this purchase.

NIV Once-a-Day Bible For Women


NIV Once-a-Day Bible for Women



The NIV Once-a-Day Bible for Women is not your ordinary Bible that you take to church on Sunday. This bible is designed for daily bible reading, broken down to 365 days, with books from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, Proverbs and a daily devotion that is written specifically for women. This is a great Bible for those women who don’t know where to begin but don’t want to begin from the Old Testament or start from the New Testament. This is gives you a little from the whole bible that way you feel like you have received a well-rounded dose of the bible.


This is a great bible for newly saved Christian women and they aren’t used to the Bible or feel intimidated by the Bible. It would also be great for a women’s bible study group that way each person has the same bible and knows exactly what page to be on. This is a great tool to help you grow in Christ and I highly recommend it to all ladies.
