The Bible art journaling community has been growing by leaps and bounds and Bible Buying Guide and Bible publishers have noticed. This is the first of a new series of articles about art journaling, and the Bible publishers have made it easier on me by publishing a wide variety of journaling Bibles including the recent ones specifically for art journalers. Two of the most notable are My Creative Bible and the Inspire Bible. I have the pink hardcover edition of the My Creative and the vintage floral Leatherlike edition of the Inspire. Both bibles are single column with a 2...Read More
Art journaling is a popular way to use journaling Bibles. Tyndale’s NLT Inspire was created specifically for art journaling. They even call it The Bible for Creative Journaling. With the Inspire Tyndale didn’t want to just make a journaling Bible like everybody else, but at the same time they wanted to create something familiar. How can that even be accomplished? In this review I take a look at Tyndale’s NLT Inspire and see what it has to offer to the world of art journaling. Binding The cover is called leather-like silky vintage blue/cream. It feels like vinyl over board...Read More

Tyndale has entered the premium and ultra-premium Bible market with their Tyndale Select NLT: Select Reference Edition – a hand-crafted edition printed by Jongbloed.

If you want to learn about nutrition The Busy Mom’s Guide to Family Nutrition is a great place to start. While there is a lot of information on the web and in various magazines about nutrition this book brings together the basics in one easy to understand book. It is written in a question and answer format and covers topics like: defining nutritional terms, understanding nutritional labels, purposes and sources of vitamins and minerals, and common sense approaches to losing weight. The weight loss sections of the book include figuring out what a proper weight should be, contributing factors (both controllable and non-controllable) to obesity, and practical solutions for all ages from toddlers to adults. I particularly liked the advice for evaluating diet claims and the explanations of the different types of fats, carbohydrates, and sugars. I have read quite a lot about nutrition and found this book to be mostly accurate, practical, and in keeping with a Christian viewpoint. It is not so “Christian” as to be offensive to those of a different worldview. Those who have studied nutrition quite a bit won’t learn new anything except possibly an easy way to explain things but this book should be useful for everyone else. Especially since it is marketed as “quick answers for moms on the go” it needs a better index to make answers to specific questions easier...Read More
