(in)courage Bible

Hello! I haven’t shared my new Bible that I added to my collection yet! I purchased the (in)courage Bible from my local Books A Million recently. I love and adore how this Bible is set up. I decided on this one because I love the simple gray cover and flowers (I added the pretty ribbon to the edge).

This Bible is more than just the books we are used to. It includes devotionals and stories throughout. I appreciate the extra storytelling and details the makers of this Bible added.

The tabs I used are from The Planner Society, and the stickers are by Illustrated Faith.

I love how there is lined journaling space is at the end of each page. I think that makes this Bible unique, versus other Journaling Bibles.IMG_1297I am still enjoying just reading the word. I haven’t begun Bible Journaling in this Bible just yet…IMG_1298I love the book of Ruth, because, well, it’s my middle name, and belonged to my grandmothers before me too.

Gathering Materials for Bible Journaling

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. Bible Journaling Journey | Created by Jen BlogI 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.Bible Journaling Journey | Created by Jen BlogI 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. IMG_0058In 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.Bible Journaling Journey | Created by Jen BlogI 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 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!Bible Journaling Journey | Created by Jen BlogThanks for stopping by!heart_jen

New Adventure into Bible Journaling!

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!Bible Journaling | Created by Jen Blog

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!

Bible Journaling | Created by Jen BlogThis 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!
