I’ve recently started doing product reviews for you guys, and I’m really enjoying it!
I especially love when I have something awesome to share that I think you will just love… like the Abide Bible and journal sets from Thomas Nelson Bibles.
Not only is the Bible STUNNING, but it includes many different prayer and meditation prompts for you to engage with. It even has several meditation prompts that accompany classical art and nature scenes, which is super unique and really exciting to me.
Then there are the deep-dive journals! Instead of having one generic journal to accompany your Bible study time, Thomas Nelson Bibles created guided journals for each individual book of the Bible. So you get prayer prompts, modern application tips, and journaling space to go with that specific book.
TLDR Version: The journals are gorgeous, relevant, and VERY reasonably priced (honestly, they’re a steal). I wish they were a different translation but that’s not a deal breaker for me.
Disclaimer: While this Bible and journal set were complimentary, I do not and will not receive any compensation for this review. So you can be sure it is my honest opinion, and that I am free to both compliment and critique this product at will.
Check out the video below to see the unboxing and my 100% honest review.
If you’re interested in the hardback Bible and book specific journals I reviewed, here are the links:
I’ll circle back once I’ve had a chance to use them and let you know what they’re like in a little more detail. I have the feeling they’re going to be amazing, but I’ll withhold judgment on that until I’ve had a chance to see them in action.
I hope that this review is helpful to you, and inspires you to check the Abide Bible and journals out for yourself!
Hey there friend! I’m Angela J Herrington, MA, LSCC and I’m a Faith Deconstruction coach who provides soul care for people who are untangling from toxic religion.
As a certified life coach and seminary-trained online pastor, I have a lot of experience helping people connect with God. But this is also a very personal journey for me.
For the last decade, I’ve been on my own journey to break free from learned smallness and step into wild sacred holy womanhood. Long story short, after finding faith in my early 30’s I began to realize that what I was hearing from the church about women didn’t always line up with what God was telling me. I loved God but realized the church was teaching some really toxic stuff.
So this Enneagram 8, first born, Gen Xer started deconstructing. I questioned and challenged everything I thought I knew about faith, gender, and myself.
It was messy and took a lot of work to sort it out. Therapy. Coaching. Bodywork. Spiritual healing. Conferences and retreats. And even a couple of college degrees.
You name it…I tried it.
But the thing that made the biggest difference was the presence and support of wise people who helped me up when I didn’t know where else to turn.
That’s why in September 2021, I created and hosted The Deconstructing Faith Summit. I gathered 20 phenomenal deconstruction experts to share their expertise and hosted over 1100 attendees in the week-long virtual event. Those who attended realized they weren’t alone, had a safe space to ask questions, learned dozens of strategies to help them deconstruct, and released tons of pent-up emotions they didn’t even know they were carrying around.
We laughed, we cried, and we danced, but the best part was…We did it together.
It was AMAZING and it was just the beginning.
So now, I’m doubling down on my commitment to create an inclusive support system for people, like you, who are longing to get away from toxic religion and cultivate a nourishing spiritual life.
