Hello! Today I’m sharing the continuation of my Bible Journaling journey. I took a class last fall and practiced this beautiful art form. Lately I’ve been gathering inspiration because I’m ready to really dive into Bible Journaling.
Here are materials I’ve gathered so far…
First of all, you need a Bible. I have the Hope for Today Bible from Joel Osteen. I love all the stories and details it offers throughout the entire Bible. I also would like to purchase a hand-painted Bible, but the right one hasn’t found me yet. I have decorated my Bible because it inspires me to open it up. On the cover are sitckers from The Planner Society. On the inside front cover, I have a piece of artwork from Hosana Revival with a quote that I find so inspiring. Then I have a piece of acetate, also from The Planner Society. You may notice all the sticky notes hanging off the side of my Bible. I have been putting Planner Society tabs together with the names of the books of the Bible. Those will replace the sticky notes once I commit to how I’m going to place the tabs.I have also added a few of these Crossway books to my Bible Journaling collection. With the exception of the Psalms book, these books of the Bible come with the right hand pages blank, perfect for journaling and artwork. Since I don’t own a proper Journaling Bible yet, I think these smaller books are going to be great for beginning my journey. In my Psalms book, I have begun decorating. I added a Planner Society vellum paper at the beginning, and also tabbed the five books of Psalms.I just received this workbook over the weekend. It’s a great new resource for this journey. There are tons of different ideas about how to Bible Journal. I also have a small Illustrated Faith embellishment collection, which will be great for my new Bible Journaling journey. I feel this is a new direction for my crafting/scrapbooking/planning life. I am so excited to get started! It’s been weighing deeply on me to get my nose into God’s Word more. I hope to share more soon!Thanks for stopping by!
Hello! Today I have something different to share with you. I’ve started my Bible journaling adventure! I’ve kept a faith planner/journal for the past 3 years now, and I’ve always been intrigued by Bible art. So, when there was a Intro to Bible Journaling class offered at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo I attended last week, I signed up. They set us up with some Bible journaling basics, and I even made a page!
I don’t have a specific Bible for journaling yet- I want one of these– but they gave us a couple smaller books with just one book of the Bible each. I love that idea too- you can focus on one book at a time, and don’t have to lug around the whole book. It’s less intimidating this way too to get down and just start creating. When it’s the actual Bible you’re looking at, I think it’s a little scary to think about drawing/painting in it! what if I screw it up, right?! The smaller book allows you to not worry about that!
This is my first attempt at Bible Journaling!
This is my faith planner for this year. I do daily scriptures here, and keep a bunch of inspirational pieces in here. If it’s inspiring for me to look at, I’ll use it!

It’s starting to get kind of chunky, and I love it!
