My Thoughts:

First thing when we opened the package we noticed that the Bible was a beautiful color and looked like something that would appeal to a wide range of styles.  It's not too girly but has some pops of orange and pink to brighten it up.  Makenzie was excited because this shade of aqua is one of her favorite colors right now.  I was excited because she opened it up and started reading it and looking up her favorite verses and then she realized there were daily readings by popular Christian female authors.  One of her all time favorite movies is Soul Surfers that tells about Bethany Hamilton's teen years and struggels after her arm was bitten off by a great white shark.  We saw the movie on a mommy-daughter date and it really touched her. From that point we've followed Bethany on Instagram, Facebook and cheered for and her husband on the Amazing Race.  So that was a HUGE bonus for Kenzie!

As I was looking through the thing that I liked a lot was the Book Introductions for each book of the Bible.  Look at my pic below and you can see the intro for Exodus.  It gives you a brief introduction to the book and tells when it happened, who is in the book, verses you might recognize and what's it about.  I really liked that idea and might borrow it for some of my own quiet time.  Another neat feature is the Character profiles of women in the Bible, I think this makes it easier for our teen girls to relate to the Biblical woman.  My favorite women in the Bible when I was a teen were Sarah and Esther and I read their stories over and over.  I'm still fascinated by Esther to this day and love movies and books about her. You know that question about if you could meet anyone from the past and have lunch with them?  Yep, you guessed it I'd always pick Esther!
