Today I just wanted to share a few creative things I’ve been doing for my faith journey. I haven’t been into planning as much, but I have picked up my spiritual creativeness a bit more, so I’m ok with that!
First, I went to my local Altar’d State shop recently, and on the sale rack was a gorgeous Hosana Revival Bible. I love the look and style of these Bibles, but I didn’t really want to invest in the high cost of them. I found this one, the Rosie edition, for half off. I took it as a sign and brought it home. It’s a great compact size and has the column for journaling on each page.Next, I have been wanting (and needing) to start another journal or planner or something to record daily scriptures again. I did this for three years, but I fell off this year and haven’t done it. I couldn’t decide on a format of how I wanted to do it.
So, I finally just brought out a Webster’s Pages notebook I’ve had for a long time and just got to work. It’s great for it to look nice, but the journaling and work I’m putting into it is the important part.I decorated the cover with a sticker, and I also decorated the inside front page with Mambi stickers. Easy!I literally just record the scripture each day, along with a few words about what the scripture means. I love this simple, but meaningful, structure.I like to redecorate a few pages at a time, so when I’m ready to turn the page, there’s something pretty to look at while I’m journaling. 🙂Finally, I also took another small notebook from my stash to use as a place to print & put my Illustrated Faith devotionals in.I did print the devotionals out as a traveler’s notebook insert too, but I also liked the thought of them on a larger page, with a space for notes next to each page.
