Book Review: Bible Verses for Today by Valeria Wolfl

About the Book:

How can this prayer journal help me read my bible every day?
  • 37 Questions to help you discover the meaning of the scripture even if you feel that you may not have enough knowledge to understand bible verses. The questions are categorized in 3 groups:
    1. Scripture Questions: to help you understand doctrines and meanings of Scripture better.

    2. Life Application Questions: to help you apply what you learned from the scripture in your everyday life to improve your daily walk with God.

    3. Prayer Questions: to help you set good motivates to pray for and keep you going in the walk with God.
  • About 10-15 minutes reading time a day: The verses are picked to be short that can be read while you are drinking your morning coffee or evening tea.

  • 365 topics: The hardest part is to decide what to read every day. The daily bible reading plan gives you 1-9 short verses put together by topics. Every day you can learn something different. Using the question sheet (take it out and laminate it) write down quick notes for each bible verse. Then move on to the prayer questions and take notes on what God revealed for you to pray about.

  • Decorative elements on each page to color: Beautiful flowers and leaves to color to make your prayer journal look good and turning it to a memorable piece of art you can keep for the years to come. Also while coloring you can meditate on the Word of God you just have read.

  • Large space to add planner style stickers and writing notes: Have your creative veins ready! You can prepare (print and cut) your stickers over the weekend to decorate your journal every day. This also helps you to commit for reading Bible verses daily since you already put work into preparation to make the stickers for the week.

  • Three full pages with Bible verses to color.

  • Large font size. Bible verses are 12 point.

  • Topic index that can be used to trace your progress: You can mark the day what you've already read. Visualizing your progress may help you keep going.

  • Works with your favorite Bible translation.

My Thoughts:

I recommend the Bible Verses for Today: Daily Scripture Reading Plan, Bible Study, and Creative Journal for 365 Days for Women by Valeria Wolfl to any Christian woman who enjoys mixing creativity and Bible study. This beautiful resource supplements daily Bible reading by presenting a topic and coordinating Scriptures for personal reflection. There are 365 topics, one for each day of the year, but the journal can be started at any time. Bible Verses for Today also includes a study helps page with questions for textual consideration and life application, plus prayer prompts.

One characteristic I love about Bible Verses for Today is its flexibility. The provided topics guide, but how to glean from the given Scriptures and what to write about them is completely open to individual preference. Personally, I like to read the Scriptures for the daily topic and write out those Scriptures in the journal. Next, I note any thoughts that come to mind and color the accents on the page. Often, I finish my time with this journal feeling uplifted and peaceful.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using Bible Verses for Today: Daily Scripture Reading Plan, Bible Study, and Creative Journal for 365 Days for Women by Valeria Wolfl. Five stars!
