My Review: I was so excited to get this bible! I love the idea of an updated study bible specifically for women, designed by women. I also love that it happens to be in my favorite translation, the NKJV.

When I received this bible, my first thought was “This far exceeds my expectations!” and “It’s beautiful!!” It truly is a gorgeous bible. It is very aesthetically pleasing with it’s beautiful, large font, pretty cover, pink-edged pages and colorful notes. I obviously have just begun to enjoy and study this bible, but so far, I am very impressed. I love the articles in the beginning and all of the notes and insights throughout and I love that all of these insights and articles were written by women.

This is definitely going to be one of my most-treasured bibles for years to come. Highly recommended.

*I received a copy of this bible free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
