Book Review: Shiny Sequin Bible

Holy Bible: Shiny Sequin Bible, International Children’s Bible translation
I am excited to present to you my review of this adorable, “girly girl” Bible! Tommy Nelson Publishers have released a copy of God’s Holy Word wrapped in sparkles and sequins that will make any girl proud to carry and read her Bible! The colors of the Bible are pink, green, purple, fuschia, and blue.

This Bible is easy to use and easy to read. The translation is meant for younger readers, but still keeps to the truth of the inerrant Word of God. The cover has a nice fabric-like layer on top of the paperback covering that makes it more durable than most paperbacks. There is a small Bible Dictionary towards the back that is perfect for the young ladies that are learning new concepts in God’s Word. The dictionary will aid in correcting any confusion and misunderstanding related to some biblical terms. Also, I find that the font size is perfect in this Bible - neither too large nor too small. Also, four color maps are in the back of the Bible. I particularly like the Memory Verse section towards the back that has listed many life application verses. I perceive the selected verses to be presented on a middle school level.

One issue I do not like about this Bible is that there are not individual chapter headings, but instead there are headings at the top of each page. I particularly noticed this on pages that have multiple chapters, such as the Psalms. Other standard versions usually give chapter headings, which highlights that chapter’s particular subject or theme. This can be quite helpful for the serious student of the Word. Other than that one issue, this is a really great Bible!

I highly recommend this Bible for any middle school age young lady. She will learn to treasure God’s Word in her heart while carrying possibly the most fashionable Bible in the whole church!

I noticed that has this Bible on sale!

Sawyer Sayings

Bubble Wrap Boy!

Here's his quotes:

"Look, I have some money (showing me a few fake coins from his pocket). We can go to a restaurant now."

"It will be Polar Express Day in my house when Grams comes to visit!"

"Come again another day!"

“My dog and cat will like my Polar Express movie”. (He doesn't have a dog or a cat but he does want both.)

me: “There are three parts in God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”.
Sawyer: “No, there are five: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the mommy, and the baby.”

Randomly at the end of January, Sawyer said, “Merry Christmas, Mommy!”.

Sawyer’s favorite quote from Home Alone: “This is it! Don’t get scared now!”

When Sawyer poured water out of his pool onto the deck, he said, “we’ll clean this up later.”

“Daddy snores like a truck. Daddy snores like a train.”

“I need to check my e-mail”.

“This is my favorite waffle.” (at the Waffle House)

“I Pwomise”

Sawyer: “I’m so happy.”
Grams: “Why are you so happy?”
Sawyer: “because I did so good for the farmer.”

“Mommy, you are a exercise lady.”

Sawyer: “Do you know why I put my covers over my head?”
Me: “No, why do you?”
Sawyer: “to keep the monsters (in my room) from putting eye drops in my eyes.”

Sawyer: “The school bus is shining a light in my room”.
Me: “Yes, the school bus is here picking up the boys from across the street.”
Sawyer: “Oh, does the school bus have arms?”

“Olivia wants a blue Dinoco helicopter for her birthday.” (YEAH RIGHT!)

Trying to get to wear another pair of pants, instead of the ones I had told him to wear, Sawyer said, “These don’t fit. I’m too chubby.”

I was playing with Olivia by spinning her around. Sawyer said, “Please don’t spin in our new house. It’s NOT NICE and it’s DANGEROUS!”


Sawyer: “Grams, I like your hair. It’s white.”
Grams: “No Sawyer, it’s blonde like yours.”

“Maybe later”
