Dear intentional gifter,
This Christmas, we invite you to share beauty with those around you through gifting intentionally. Whether it’s through choosing each tool with the recipient in mind or wrapping the gift in a beautiful new way, each gift you give is an opportunity to deeply encourage your friend or family member. Welcome to our best tips to gift intentionally...
How to Gift a Loaded Bible
a gifted Bible given with thought, prayer, and a few tips taped within
Opening the Bible can be overwhelming. If you are gifting a Bible to a friend or family member who isn’t familiar with its stories or how to read it, a loaded Bible can be the perfect way to bridge that gap and equip them to feel more comfortable and encouraged to read their new Bible—God’s Word will accomplish the rest!
Mark the Table of Contents
Mark the table of contents with washi tape or a bookmark. It will be helpful for a new reader to quickly be able to find that important page.
Add reference verses
Take note of reference verses for specific topics—like stress, anxiety, praise, etc.—and mark them in the back of the Bible.
Mark your favorite passages
Mark a few verses—on separate paper—in the Bible margins. The key tip is to do it on sticky notes or a different piece of paper and tape it in so that you can leave all of the actual journaling to the future owner. This gives them the freedom to underline and discover Scripture for themselves!
Write a sweet note
Write a thoughtful note on the inside cover! Encouragement in the faith from a friend goes such a long way.
Pray over the Bible
Pray that God’s Word would accomplish its purpose in their heart. Truly God delights to answer this prayer!
Gift the Loaded Bible
Last of all, gift the finished loaded Bible! We hope this encourages you to set aside some extra time to intentionally equip the people in your life to draw near to Scripture. We’re cheering you on as you gift!
