The Beginner's Bible App... REALLY!!

I have had an opportunity to preview an app for my iPad, based on the children's version of the Beginner's Bible. WOW! It's really great!

The initial pack is free, and you can purchase other sections of the Beginner's Bible app in 6 story increments for $1.99. Each section includes the Bible, broken down into popular stories, an audio version that will read it to your child, and games, coloring pages, and puzzles for them to play with on the application, based on the stories.

It is so easy to navigate, and the audio version is really appealing - not a computer sounding voice, but actual male/female voices reading slowly. It highlights each word as it is spoken/read, which will help early readers in their vocabulary. Animal sounds in the background, and movement on the picture pages adds to the fun for the little ones.

This is not deep theological Bible study, but a GREAT first story Bible for your kids and grandkids (or even for the kids you babysit!). I'd much rather see them using this app than playing silly, nonsense games.

I'm thankful that Handlebar Publishing gave me the opportunity to try out the new application, and will be receiving a copy of the Beginner's Bible for publishing my review, but really, I'm grateful to know that this is out there! Our kids enjoyed their first Beginner's Bible when they were young, and we used it in Children's Ministry for years. To see the app on iPad, I think that generations of youngsters will be engaged in meaningful and relevant ways with this great edition.

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
