Creating a Loved Bible for a Shower or Wedding

A Loved Bible is full of notes, prayers, highlights, and more! It is meant to be a great tool to help make disciples. Getting married is a giant life change. Creating a Loved Bible to give to the new bride, groom, or couple is an incredibly thoughtful gift as they start their marriage.

Creating a Loved Bible

How to Get Started:

The first thing you will want to do is read our Getting Started Guide.

What Type of Bible?

Since this is a Bible for an important life event, you may want to purchase a non-compact Bible. There are a variety of options, features, and price points. Here are a few:

Ideas for Creating a Loved Bible

  • At the shower, have a Bible that each guest can highlight their favorite Bible verse and write her/his name.
  • Contact a number of the bride/groom’s friends and family members. Ask them to send you a Scripture reference and a personal note to include in the Loved Bible. This is a great option to include for those who do not live close to you.
  • If someone is getting married in your small group, meet together and work on loving a Bible to give as a wedding gift.

What TLBP Resources Should I Use in my Loved Bible?

  • The Foundations Workbook: We recommend you start all Loved Bibles using the Foundations Workbook. This gives an overview of the gospel and how the gospel is for all of life. The gospel saves us, sanctifies (grows) us, and sustains us (we never grow out of our need). Include a few (or many!) of the recommended Scriptures for each question. There are usually about 50 entries in total. As you repeatedly go through this process, you begin to rehearse and memorize the Scriptures and their meanings, helping you to grow as a disciple-maker.
  • The Attributes of God Worksheet: Attributes are words that tell us what someone or something is like. When we read the Bible, we learn the attributes of God. God tells us who He is and what He is like. Every story, person, place, and event in the Bible is true and helps us learn who God is.  
  • Our New Marriage Worksheet is filled with quotes related to marriage!
