It was a gift she gave to 18-year-old Garrett Chisum, her boyfriend of 11 months, according to KING-TV.
The thoughtful gesture was reportedly rooted in the fact that Chisum had previously given Lee his own personal Bible early on in their relationship when Lee was experiencing some “tough times,” according to BuzzFeed.
Inspired by Chisum’s decision to highlight one of the couple’s favorite verses in that Bible, Lee decided to then personalize an entire Bible for her boyfriend, embarking on the three-month quest to complete the kind act. The final result included quotes, comments and illustrations aimed at emphasizing important points of scripture.
“I figured a Bible would be a cute, really pure gift,” she told BuzzFeed. “And knowing my boyfriend, I knew he would love it even more if I customized it.”
Lee has received mostly positive comments, though she said some have threatened her on social media over her decision to highlight her favorite Bible passages and decorate the pages. It is unclear what those negative messages have said.
