Beautiful ESV Journaling Bible Review & Giveaway

I was given product in exchange for this review, but, as always, all opinions are 100% mine.
Hey, y'all!  I have been soooo excited about today's post for a couple of weeks now!  Y'all know how I adore Bible journaling, right?  Well, today I'm telling you all about the brand new ESV Crossway Journaling Bible I received to review, and I'm giving you a chance to win one.  That's right: one lucky reader is going to win a beautiful journaling Bible!  (Eek!!!)
ESV Journaling Bible Review & Giveaway from PitterandGlink.com
Before we get to the super-awesome giveaway, let me tell you about my new Crossway ESV Journaling Bible.

ESV Journaling Bible Review & Giveaway from PitterandGlink.com
When my Bible came in the mail, I think I squealed a little.  The Bible was in a pretty box that matches the cover of the beautiful Bible on the inside.

The Journaling Bible measures 6.5 inches x 7.5 inches.  It's lightweight and a nice compact size for those of us who like to carry our Bibles around with us to church or Bible journaling nights.  The cover is described as "cloth over board," and it features a pattern called "Blue Flora."  The cover almost has a velvety feel, so I just love rubbing my hands over it.

The inside of the Journaling Bible features black letter text on cream-colored paper.  The scriptures are in a double-column, paragraph format, and there are 2" ruled margins on the pages that are perfect for journaling notes, reflections, prayers, praise, etc.  It should be noted that, like many journaling Bibles, the type size is 7, which may be too small for those with aging eyes.  Also, there's a One-Year Bible Reading Plan at the back of the Bible, and each Bible book has an introduction and section heading.

  19. This is a beautiful journaling bible. If I win I want to bless my friend who is using her deceased husband's bible to journal in. She has been looking at other bibles but didn't have the money to get one. I offered to get one for her but she said she would just use her husbands until she had the time to search for one that she could afford. So if I won this and told her I already had one and that it was a gift, I know she would not refuse such a beautiful bible

  20. I want to win! Oh please, Jesus! lol My favorite verse is Philippians 4:6-7, especially on NKJV. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    I cling to these verses when I have anxiety. They get me through a lot!
