NIV, Lifehacks Bible, Hardcover Practical Tools for Successful Spiritual Habits

Disclaimer:  I was given a copy of this Bible for review and to give my feedback.

Never judge a book by its cover or in this case a Bible.  When it arrived I just kind of gave it a HUH? look.  The cover is so not what you would expect from a Bible.
Upon opening it though the old saying don't judge a book by its cover was drove home.  The tools that accompany this Bible are amazing!  And things I can use in my everyday life, for example on page 41 we were asked 3 question.
The first one was;
Understand your desire --- What motivates you to become more like Christ?  What does a truly honest answer look like?  What are the desires of your heart that you want the Lord to give you (see PS 37:4)?

For me this was a thinker!  I know that I want to walk the walk that will make me Christ like, but why?  What are my motivates?  Are they pure or do I want something in return?
For me the answer turned out to be my boys.  I kept thinking about them as I pondered this question and how I want them to have that relationship with God.  How I was to be close to God so I can help them also be close with him.  I kept thinking of all the beautiful blessing God has given me and how I want me boys to also feel that joy.

I like that these tool pages are very to the point and let you walk away with a new interpretation of what you read.  Sometimes I read the Bible and don't really connect it to my everyday life.  It is almost like I am just going through the motions.  With this Bible the tools help me to walk away with so much more, it is like reading the Bible for the first time!
