First Wild Card Tour: NIV Real Life Devotional Bible for Women, Insights for Everyday Life Notes

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!




You never know when I might play a wild card on you!


My thoughts:  This is a beautiful Bible as well as a devotional and one that I would consider for gift giving for just about any woman I know - young or old.  The devotions are spread throughout the Bible and are not labeled with a date - but just Day 1, Day 2, etc.  So you don't have the guilt (or at least I don't) when I miss a day!   The devotional is placed  near a verse that is appropriate and it gives more readings at the bottom that also apply.  It also tells you what page the next devotional can be found on.  

I found the actual devotionals to be very warm and insightful into things that a woman would be dealing with, and they transcend ages.  Where they spoke to me as a mom and woman in my 40's, I could easily see how my daughters, 18 and 20 would also be able to glean meaning from them.  

If you are in the market for a new devotional, or a new Bible, check this one out.

I love that this is labeled by days and not by dates. I have a few devotionals, and I'd rather them not start on Jan. 1st, or be titled with a specific year.
