I feel so Blessed and just have to Praise the Lord for His Blessings.
A few minutes ago I was on my FB page and I saw my 13 y/o granddaughter who lives in MN on so I opened the chat window. I was also reading the posts and saw where she had posted that she went to church this morning with her friend she is staying over with last night and today.
I asked her what was the name of the church and she said Berean Baptist and that she goes all the time with her friend Heidi when she stays over which is quite often.
I then asked her if Heidi believes in Jesus and she said yes and I asked her if she believes in Jesus and she answered yes. I told her that was good to hear because the only way for us to get to Heaven when we die is to believe in Jesus. I asked her if she has a Bible and she said no. So I asked her if she would like me to buy her one and send it to her and she said yes.
I asked her what kind of Bible did Heidi have and could she read it and understand it. She said it is pink and brown (girls LOL) and easy to read and for teenage girls.
This is where I need help and advice. At 70 I have not had experience with teens in many, many years. I know there are Moms and Dads out there with teens....could someone tell me if they know...what Bible is this, what translation, publisher? I do tend to go with Thomas Nelson publishers over Zondervan, but if I were to know the name of the Bible and who the publisher is and go to the bookstore close by and peruse it I could then know for certain if I would buy it for her. I read the KJV so you can see my dilemma.
Just knowing that my granddaughter is having seeds planted and hearing the Word of God preached has my heart bursting with joy.
Her mom, my daughter (who does know about Jesus and is rebelling) told me years ago that she and her husband would not tell the children about Jesus or God until they were adults......well I see that God has other ideas........Praise His Holy Name. Prayer does work
Thank you and God Bless.
