Lifehacks Bible Giveaway

Today’s the day! I’m uber excited about giving away The Lifehacks Bible. At first, I had no clue what a Lifehacks Bible might contain. But from the very first pages of the introduction, I was intrigued:

“This is a guide for every Christian interested in asking themselves, ‘What would I do to become more like Jesus?’ This Bible is designed for anyone who would answer, ‘I’ll do whatever is required to become more like Jesus. . . but I’m not sure what that process entails.’”

lifehacks2The Lifehacks Bible provides 365 articles that attempt to explain the becoming-like-Jesus process, peppered into the NIV (New International Version) of the living word of God.

To explain this Bible’s goals, let me breakdown two terms. First: spiritual formation:

According to author Joe Carter, spiritual formation is “the process by which Christians, in union with Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit, become conformed to the character of Christ for the purpose of communion with God.”

Ok. So, what’s a lifehack?

Any advice, shortcut, tip or skill that helps you get things done more efficiently and effectively.

lifehacks3These lifehack articles (one for every day of the year) give very practical, doable exercises and disciplines to become more like Jesus. Still not sure you get it? Here are some of the lifehack topics:

  • scripture memorization
  • journaling
  • gratitude
  • rest
  • prayer
  • seeing Jesus in Scripture
  • obedience
  • fasting
  • evangelism
  • solitude and silence
  • and more!

One of my favorite aspects of this Bible is how it motivates and guides me in asking the Holy Spirit to illuminate the words of scripture—whether Old Testament or New—and show me how to apply them to my life.

I did struggle just a bit with focus and staying on the text. With a plethora of fascinating articles like “How to handle hard-to-understand-texts in the Bible,” “The Benefit of Reading the Scriptures Aloud,” “What to Do When You Don’t Feel Like Worshiping,” and “Sleep as a Spiritual Activity” flipping around to read only the articles and skipping over the actual Bible was tempting.

Still, I highly recommend adding this Bible to your spiritual toolbox as you seek to work out your salvation with fear and trembling and take up your cross daily as a disciple of Christ.

So what are you waiting for? Comment below and I’ll enter you in my drawing. If you’re the winner, you’ll be notified on Friday June 24th after 5 p.m. If you don’t win, go here to purchase one for yourself. You’ll be glad you did!

  1. Love this idea, Maresa! And what a fabulous way to learn about new Bibles. This one sounds intriguing so please consider me for the “give a way” today. Have fun! And thanks!

  2. Those articles sound interesting especially the one sleep as a spiritual activity. I have been reading a continuing education book on the importance of sleep physically, mentally, emotionally and maybe according to the article in that Bible, spiritually. Interesting!

  3. The true Life Hack is God’s word! We’re the ones who make it so difficult! I love the idea of this Bible. Thank you for offering as a give-away.

  4. The lifehacks sounds exactly like what I’ve been looking for. I’ve never really dove into the word before, only occasional bible verses looked up based on life experiences and devotions with my husband, my children and daily devotions for myself. Loved reading through your blog just now and saved it to my favorites pages. Thank you for all that you!

    • Hi Jennifer! I’m so glad you joined me here. I do think you’d love this Bible! It’s challenging me in a very good way to expand my Bible horizons in reading, meditating on and applying God’s Word. I’m entering you in the giveaway.

  5. What a great idea Maresa! This looks like a wonderful way to draw closer to the Lord and learn more of who He is! Please enter me in the contest!
