These little notebooks are some of my very favorite things. I’m usually terrible about “completing” notebooks and journals– I’ll get about halfway in and abandon them for a new, shiny notebook.  Not true with these cute notebooks– they are small enough that I can fill them easily and quickly– and then move on to a new, cute notebook!

One of the things that I’m learning about filling these notebooks– the Illustrated Faith notebooks in particular– is that the more notebooks I fill with prompts about my journey with God– and creating art about that journey– the closer I feel to God.  Shocking, right? The more time I spend talking to God, the closer I feel to Him!

What I love doing is “pre-decorating” my notebooks.  That way, it’s easier to “grab and go” with a cute little notebook so I can journal when I have a quick moment alone. I can be creative when I have the time, and I can be thoughtful and reflective (and still have cute pages!) when I have the thoughts.

“Pre-decorating” is exactly what I did with the new Adventure notebook that’s in the Print and Pray shop. I used the matching God’s Directions kit from last week to decorate some of the pages before I journaled my thoughts on them.

I used this particular notebook to journal my next “adventure” of maternity leave and full-time artist and mamahood. It’s a journey that I know I’m going to need to lean on God for a lot, since it’s a LOT of changes coming at once. Great changes, scary changes, overwhelming changes. But it’s going to be and adventure, so I thought I would use an adventure kit!

    I’m getting this to use with my son and my daughters in the mornings as we have been doing Bible journaling together! So glad I found this. This is good for boys as well! :D Thank you!
