Do you like to doodle and draw? Do you love to take notes in your Bible? Maybe you should consider Bible Journaling!
Have you heard of Bible Journaling? I just started to notice it pop up in my newsfeed on Pinterest and even on Facebook. I was pretty intrigued by it, and I am thinking about purchasing my own Journaling Bible so that I can start doing it myself.
If you love to doodle in the margins of your sermon notes, love eclectic messy art, and keeping track of your favorite scriptures and the things that God shows you, then you will love Bible Art Journaling! When I was reading up on this new “trend”, I was inspired by the fact that my Bible could be an expression of who I am. My handwriting, doodles and notes would show how God is molding me and changing me. It would be a testimony of how I have been encouraged by the Word and show the verses that stood out to me and encouraged me in my life and walk. A journaling Bible can be a great legacy to leave for your children!
Here is an amazing post from The Time Warp Wife that talks about this very thing, and look at her gorgeous pages:
