I was on the launch team for the Filament Bible when it first came out. It was only offered in 3 colored bindings, one version (NLT) and one font size. They have come a long way!

First of all, I love the concept of this Bible. Being able to have a smaller Bible to carry and having an app that can scan the top of each page to get study material, devotionals, maps, and so much more is a great idea! I found the app to be very user friendly. It is something anyone can use considering we all carry phones or something technology-related with us at all times.

Second, are the versions. I received the NLT, but they also carry the KJV. This will definitely appeal to some people who only read that version.

Third, there are two resources included in the back of this Bible. There is a verse finder section, which includes numerous verses for specific topics. The feature that I love is the Virtual Overview of the Bible. People who are visual learners, like myself, will love the 14 different events in this section. It is beautifully done and it helps to put things in perspective.

The font size for the Bible is 8.75, which still makes it still very easy to read.

There are only 2 cons to this Bible. One thing is that the pages are super thin. It can make it difficult to highlight or underline. The other con is that there is next to no space to write notes. There are translation notes and cross references at the bottom of the 2nd column, so if you like writing in your Bible, you may not like the lack of space.

Overall, I love this Bible. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to dive deep into Scripture. Especially people who are visual learners and love the technology side. It makes having all of this extra material easier to handle without having to carry a 5 pound Study Bible everywhere. I received a copy of the new Large print Bible from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.

The font size for the large print is 10.25, which is a great size for large print.

6 months! How is it that this ministry has been around for 6 months already?! I am so grateful for every door that has been opened and for every person who has been touched by this ministry. Anchored by the Sword was not even a thought in my mind at the beginning of this year. Who would have thought one decision to finally get free would have come to this...God did. He knows how I feel unsure and unsteady about what is next, but He reminds me daily that my feelings do not dictate my responses or what He is going to do.


Only He would have planned for us to become 6 months old on the biggest day of the year, election day! The day in which the US is divided between candidates is the day for Christians to rise up and stick together. To become more anchored to God and to His Word. To know no matter what happens in the election, Jesus is still on the throne!


God, I thank you for this journey. I pray I will have the opportunity to serve You with each and every breath, thought and deed until the day You call me home. I thank You for guiding each step and grace for when I don't fall into step with You. I pray this for everyone who reads these words as well. In Jesus's name, Amen!
