Hi there sweet friends!!! If I can just be honest and straight forward with you for a moment – this post was due a while ago but I kept putting it off. Goodbyes are always hard – but I am having a change of heart and instead of saying goodbye we are just going to say THANK YOU!!! Let’s face it these ladies aren’t leaving our community, we still get to be inspired and love on them as always!

Our creative team consists of influencers in the Illustrated Faith community and as a part of the team we ask for a 6 month commitment. That 6 months is up for some of our friends, some have exciting things going on in their own businesses, some have decided to take more time for family and others are just excited about what God has for them next!!! I am so thankful for each one of them and saying YES to this crazy, wonderful, fun-loving team!!

I have been on many design/creative teams in my time in the creative industry but I have never seen a team like the Illustrated Faith team. They lean on each other, they pray for each other and they cheer each other on – they amaze me daily!

Please join me in saying THANK you to these sweet friends for their commitment to the community!

As part of this thank you I wanted to share some of my favorite articles from these amazing ladies!!



Dear Younger Me

Amanda was one of the first to join our team and I am just so honored to call her my friend! I loved this song that Amanda shared on the blog, something about it still stirs my heart so I know there is more work to be done there but I am so thankful for her sharing her heart with us during this time!



Setting Up Your Faith Planner

It’s funny that Florence used the She Blooms collection for this post because that is exactly what I think of when I look at the work Florence has done while on the team! I have really seen her bloom in her faith and I just can’t wait to see what God has in store for her next!


Creative Notetaking

Gina oh Gina!!! We have gotten to know each other very well over the past couple of months, so when I saw this post from her my heart swelled! The inspiration she shares with our community won’t soon be forgotten! Mamacakes has some exciting things happening so if you want to keep up with Gina make sure to head over there!


Teach My Heart To Love

Janel has a way with color and pattern that just draws you in so when I see posts like this from here I just get excited to open them up and dig a bit deeper! I love this article from Janel because she talks with us about attributes of a Christian – which is always a good reminder!


God Is Light

Leah has been a HUGE asset to the team and took a BIG leap of faith by saying YES to this commitment because she was BRAND NEW to bible journaling when she joined us!!! I thought it was important to share this journey from the prospective of someone just starting out and Leah did just that! I loved this article from Leah, as it talks about God’s light which she shares SO WELL!!


Love On The Line 

When I look at this article I first think of God and then I think of Stephanie. Stephanie always makes sure to point the attention to God while still using her personal style and that is one of the things I love most about her! This article not only is powerful but shows how to illustrate your faith outside of the bible, which I adore!

Thank you sweet ladies!!!! If you would like to say thank you below I am sure each one of the girls would love that to a million pieces!!! xo – Shanna

P.S. A HUGE WONDERFUL LOVE and THANK you to the rest of the team as well since they will be staying on and continue to bring you daily inspiration & education in bible journaling ~!
