Bible Belles are still one of my favorite scripture based story book series.
Through the past few years I have been reading Bible Belle stories to my daughter and son alike. They both love so much about these books. I love how they incorporate real life situations a child will face with a biblical truth and story from the bible. They love the images and excitement of the story itself.
The newest book in the series is now released and available for purchase! Deborah: The Belle of Leadership
Deborah was a women that was faced with a very sticky situation, and had to overcome her place in society and be braver than she ever imagined – to become a leader.
I love how this story gives young girls the concept that they too can step up and be brave by being the one in charge. It encourages them that when taking charge is the thing you need to do, that God will equip you to be the girl He desires you to be.
We need to teach our children that we are living to please God, not the people around us. It is Him that holds our lives eternally.
Deborah is the 5th, and final book, in the Bible Belles Series!
The adventure continues in Book Five of the Bible Belles series. With the angel Mari by her side, Rooney has learned that God has given her four real superpowers: Prayer, Patience, Bravery, and Loyalty. Her transformation into a superhero is almost complete. What’s missing? The Bell of Leadership.
As she watches Deborah rise up and lead an entire nation to victory, Rooney realizes that true leadership means inspiring others and working together. Through the story of Deborah, Rooney learns that God is calling her to lead. Is she ready to answer the call?
Come along with Rooney as she becomes the greatest superhero of all: a Bible Belle!
Bible Belles is one of my households favorite series to read together. With biblical values at the base of each story they are packed with entertainment, Truth and beautiful images. In each book the reader follows Rooney, the protagonist, who finds herself in a pickle and needs some advise. It is then that a fairy like angel comes to Rooney’s rescue with a story from the bible that helps guide her decisions and actions. Each book pulls from a princess like biblical women and how she handles what God as put in front of her. The book of Ruth shows us to remain loyal, no matter what turmoil we may face. In Ruth, The Belle of Loyalty, Rooney wants to give up and all she wants to do is leave…but can she choose to love instead? As Rooney watches Ruth face the choice to stay or walk away, she learns what it means to be loyal and put another person’s needs before her own.
My children love to read books, it is part of our daily life. Finding Christian books is not a problem. There are tons out there, but I have never come across books that show the readers the women heroes of the bible, and then shows them how to apply the truth in their own lives. No matter our ages, we have room for growth. Establishing the Truth and a solid foundation at a young age can help the young girl in your life set herself up for a successful walk with Christ.
Wouldn’t it be great if girls today were just as excited about biblical women as they are about princesses? Wonderful, real life examples of true beauty, women who can be real heroes for girls today. That would be something. That would be everything. – Bible Belle’s Website
What we love about Bible Belles: Ruth, the Belle of Loyalty
It focuses on Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times.”
Rooney learns things don’t always end how you want them too, life is not a fairy tale
Putting others above yourself is what God calls us to do
Trusting in prayer, patience, bravery and now loyalty
Instilling Christian values in my children is one of the top focuses in my life. Striving to give them the tools they need for a future in our crazy world is something every parent wants to give their children. With the help of apps like Playlister, Sunday churches have become easier, and more effective. However, the effect of a book remains immortal.
Having found Bible Belles book series, I am excited to tell you that this is a great way to really help solidify the basic concepts from some amazing bible heroes.
Little girls are often times very attracted to princesses and the excitement that goes with being a princess. Bible Belles took this concept and ran with it. By taking women from the bible who are awesome heroes, than featuring them as the main biblical person to teach the reader about a biblical characteristic. Giving the reader a fun yet true story and, most importantly, how to apply this truth to a small child’s everyday life.
Every book has been illustrated by a former Disney cartoonist, giving the books images the stunning and exciting quality that draws in a child’s attention. In each book the main character, Rooney, finds herself dealing with a common issue which a child may face. In the story of Abigail, Rooney see’s her brother being mean and unloving towards a neighbor. The situation which Rooney faces is written to parallel that of Abigail’s. A reoccurring character, Mari the angel, helps take Rooney into the bible story and shows her a real story and truth from Gods Word. At the end, Rooney is able to make the connection and use her knowledge to make the right, and sometimes hard choices, as a child of Christ in her life’s experiences.
My daughter is 4 and loves to read. Seeing it “click” on how she can be like Abigail by being brave gives her the confidence in Gods Words we are seeking. Teaching a young girl or boy the importance of applying learned truths from the bible to their everyday life is a key trait for any growing Christian. Being able to figure out on their own how to make life applications will help them grown not only in their faith, but as a person dependent on Christ.
In this crazy world it is easy to get swooped up into media, fades and earthly desires. I fall short daily and actively try to turn from my sinful ways and look to Christ as my example. If I fall so easily into earthly ideas and temptations I can only imagine how hard that is on my small, sponge-like little children. I try to instill strong Christian values into our everyday life, but even mom needs helps sometimes.
When I saw Bible Belle’s when searching online for wholesome biblical based books for my kids I was instantly interested. “Wouldn’t it be great if girls today were just as excited about biblical women as they are about princesses? Wonderful, real life examples of true beauty, women who can be real heroes for girls today. That would be something. That would be everything.” – Bible Belle’s Website
Bible Belles’ The Adventures of Rooney Cruz is an original children’s series that highlights five superhero women of the Bible: Hannah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth, and Deborah.
My children love to read books, it is part of our daily life. Finding Christian books is not a problem. There are tons out there, but I have never come across a book that shows little girls the women heroes in the bible, and shows them the applications in their life. No matter our ages, we have room for growth. Establishing the Truth and a solid foundation at a young age can help the young girl in your life set herself up for a successful walk with Christ.
The Adventures of Rooney Cruz has had 2 books released so far: Hannah The Belle of Prayer and now, the newest book, Esther The Belle of Patience. In each book the main character, Rooney, is met with daily issues that you would find similarly in your own life. A fairy-like angle comes to Rooney and helps guide her through a biblical based story straight out of the gospel that is relative to the daily issue the character Rooney is struggling with. Putting the story in words that a child can understand, but while sticking with the truth of the gospel, you are given the “Bible Belle’s” story. Highlighting that girls play an important role in the bible and have the ability to do great things for God.
The graphics in the books are amazing! This is because a former Disney artist is the illustrator, which makes the book stand out from any other books. The colors, animation and design pull your child into the story, just like a Disney princess would.
