I grew up with The Children's Bible "in Colour." There's nothing wrong with it. It was awesome. In fact, around 15 years ago, when my daughter was my son's age she read it from cover to cover by herself. We were very proud. I think we can all agree, though, that for this next generation of kids... some (not all) of our books are a little like watching a black & white television for them. THIS is our children's Bible update.
“I am overwhelmed with the repeating words, resounding in my mind like a trumpeting horn, ‘not my will, but Yours be done.’ I’m increasingly concerned with the people of God, their leaders (not just pastors, but leaders, teachers, praise team members, etc.) especially, not being led by God in the NOW....”
The way I see it, there are two inextricable ingredients involved with a couple in which one of the two is cheating: 1. Spiritual Death; and 2. lack of or decreased self-value....
What’s weighing on you? Maybe you’ve lost someone or you’re struggling to hold onto your health. Maybe it’s a fragmented relationship or one you never even got to have. Maybe you’ve experienced something unspeakable or did something that feels unforgivable. Something or someone has left you feeling rejected, guilty, and broken.
“Can you imagine what would happen in this world we live in if every woman.... let's say 12 and older.... was given this Bible as a gift? Women are world-changers. Look at Ruth: because she was selfless she gave birth to the lineage of King David. Look at Esther: she saved God's people by being courageous. When King Josiah had questions, who did he go to? Huldah, that's who! I could go on and on. With a Bible in the hands of every woman on this planet, lives would be saved and nations would turn their eyes toward God. How do I know this?”

“There’s just so much darkness going on in the world,” says Loche. “Every day you read the worst, most horrific news you can imagine. We want to just be a blip of good, a blip of light in a dark world, to atheists and to Christians.”
Understanding the Bible can be challenging at best and discouraging at the worst. It's frustrating when you want to know more about God, be a better person, have a better life, and yet you can't understand the manual. If you feel that way - or know someone that may feel that way - this post is for you!
My husband and I know several people going through marriage wars, right now. It may sound like a new reality show. It's not. Don't worry, though, I'm sure they'll get around to it. 🙄 In the meantime, let's focus on not giving the world what it wants, but giving God what He wants and saving our families while we're at it!
