Monday Monday! How are you today?! :) I have several people inquire about my journaling bible, the process behind it and the products I use so I thought it would be fun to make it a weekly post. I recently taught a small class to some kids at our church, and they loved it… actually a LOT more than I thought they would! I couldn’t believe how into it they got, and it was so much fun to see how each one was so unique when they were done. I had some people ask me to do a class, but I think this is something that is better explained as I go. I thought I would update you weekly as I journal in my bible.
First I wanted to say that this isn’t for every one and I totally respect that. Some people may think that doodling in your bible is not respectful. I wanted to point out that this is specifically a journaling bible, and for ME it helps ME connect to the word, and the sermons I am hearing. So let’s talk about this journaling bible! I got this a couple years ago but only recently got back into it. In the interm I was using Paper 53 on my ipad to take my sermon notes, and though I really like process, for now this is inspring me more.
The bible I use is the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible. Of course that black cover was never going to do so I covered mine with some sticky fabric, paper and washi tape as any scrapbooker would!
Here is a view from the top. I love documenting what I am learning, hearing, thinking about in this way. I love that Jaden looks through my bible all the time to see the latest notes, I love that Addison says “Mommy your bible isn’t boring THAT’S FOR SURE!”. I love that I am able to take what happens on Sunday morning and reflect on it throughout the week in a way that is meaningful to me.
Do you have a journaling bible? I would love to see yours! Thinking of getting one? Share! I can’t wait to hear all about it! If you have an questions, please ask away!
