Seriously friends could this line be any cuter? I love the colors, the adorable birds but most of all I love the message behind it. As we were developing this line I just kept thinking about bible journaling the seeds planted in our life and how we find freedom through Christ as those bloom. I am so thankful for each one of you that have shared your stories of bible journaling and documenting those seeds in your life which is why this line made perfect sense, plus that owl? Are you kidding me? ADORABLE!

As I was listening to people talk about it during our show at creativation (a show where retailers come and buy product for their store) I heard so many of them say “this is perfect for spring” or “this is perfect for Easter” which just makes my heart sing. Honestly YES IT WOULD – it is so nice when you dream up, pray over and work on a line that in the end they “get it” without us even having to say a word. The team over at Bella Blvd has done it again they have just been amazing to work with and I am so thankful for this team!!!!!

I just can’t wait to see how you guys use seeds of faith in not only your bible journaling but in those beautiful scrapbook pages as well! Check out this wonderful video from the Bella Team to check out some of our favorite bits!

    I am new to bible journaling. I am intrigued by the idea of using it as a way to praise God. Also, what a beautiful way to record and remember all of the things the Spirit teaches me.

    I have been bible journaling for a little over a year. I saw a flyer in my local Christian bookstore about a bible journaling workshop. I attended, began searching Pinterest and the internet for anything I could on bible journaling and found Illustrated Faith. I am so excited to daily be in the word, and see what God is leading me learn each day.

    I have been doing bible journaling for about a year after a difficult situation. Since I love scrapbooking, this is a great way for me to reconnect to God. Love all the colors, the designs and the little messages in each piece. This new collection is awesome; the little birds are super cute and would look great on my bible!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Thank you for this beautiful collection Shanna! I started Bible Journaling last summer while in a very dry season of my faith. I wasn’t spending time in the word as much as I once had. When I did attempt to study the Word I never seemed to get anything out of it. It was during the Summer Arts Festival in my community that I stumbled across a tent selling Journaling Bibles and learned about the world of illustrating your faith. I just loved the creativeness of it all so I started doing some research when I came across Illustrated Faith. I have been hooked ever since and my walk with the Lord has thrived! I have not been in that dry season since and it’s so refreshing. Your new collection, Seeds of Faith is absolutely beautiful and reminds me of one of my favorite books, The Secret Garden every time I look at it. Those birds and butterflies are so lovely. The Secret Garden actually represents where I was spiritually before I discovered Illustrated Faith and Bible Journaling and where I am now. When Mary first discovered the garden it was dry and withered and through her care she made it bloom and created in it a refreshing haven of flowers, animals and life. I feel like I was like that garden, all dried out and withered and along came God and a new way to dig into his Word and now I am no longer that dried and withered garden but a vibrant, blooming garden. When I look at your collection I am reminded of that :) I would love to use this collection to document my journey in my Bible and Praise Book.
    Okay, so I totally just wrote a book pouring my heard out! Haha. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I’ve technically been Bible journaling for over a year, but making it a regular thing is something new for me.

  6. I first started bible journaling back in June after attending a bible journaling workshop at my local christian bookstore. I had before that always had a prayer journal but after the workshop I loved the whole idea of being able to document what I was learning in the word. Thank you illustrated faith for all that you do!! Love this line, its so adorable!!!

  7. Jennifer Preston 3 years ago

    I’ve been a note taker in my bible for years – I love doing the symbols inductive method as popularized by Kay Arthur, plus adding my own thoughts in the margins. I found Illustrated Faith this past year and am *loving* combining the two styles. I love connecting my creativity and my analytical side together to more fully grasp God’s word. I feel like I’m remembering more than ever!

  8. Steph Phillips 3 years ago

    Well that’s just brightened up my day ! Can’t wait until the collection arrives across the pond ??

  9. Jen Steed 3 years ago

    i have been buying the kits since the first came out, but i didn’t really start using them until April of last year and i’m loving it!!

  10. Ms.JoGrant 3 years ago

    I am VERY new to bible journaling. I live in Bermuda so shipping stuff is a huge issue for me, so I have not purchased any of the kits. But my goal this year is to start simply reading my bible daily and then from there, journaling about what inspires me in the word or what messages stand out.

  11. Kate Stormes 3 years ago

    I am new to Bible journaliing and trying to get a plan

  12. Adriene Saisslin 3 years ago

    Shanna, Love, love, love this new line! I’ve been Bible journaling for a few years now. Thank you for sharing your gifts, talents and time with all of us in the Bible journaling community!

  13. Lauren M 3 years ago

    I’ve been off and on journaling this past year. I would like to be more consistent with it though! I love the Seeds of Faith collection. Perfect for Spring!

  14. kristin meyer 3 years ago

    I first stumbled across Bible journaling on Pinterest, and it came at a time when I was trying to dig deeper into my faith and study the Bible more. I had purchased a few Bible study books thinking that would get me started in studying the Bible, but honestly when I opened them up I was just overwhelmed. While it was a pretty visual that caught my eye on Pinterest, once I learned more about what Bible journaling was and why people were doing it I thought it sounded like something that would be perfect for me! I started following the Illustrated Faith community on Facebook, Instagram and reading the blog for a good 3 or 4 months before I finally jumped in and started it myself about 8 or 9 months ago. I love to be creative and do crafts and projects so this was a perfect way to connect those two things and help me dig deeper. I’m so grateful for this community and have learned so much from all of the wonderful people who share their message, stories and creativity!

  15. Maria Muresan 3 years ago

    This collection is so beautiful!!! I discovered Bible Journaling Winter 2015, and stalked the Bible Journaling (Illustrated Faith) Community’s page until I got my own Journaling Bible for Christmas! I was so intrigued about this new way to get into the bible and connect with His word! And of course how pretty it was doing it!! I was finally brave enough to make my first entry right after New Years… So I just celebrated my bibleversary this month! Along this past year’s journey, it’s amazing the things I can see God moving, and how I’ve been growing… He’s given me a tribe to call my own, and friends, my sisters in Christ ♥ All because of bible journaling!

  16. Jessilyn Holp 3 years ago

    I just came across bible journaling online through pinterest and then joined an online facebook group. I haven’t done much yet, but looking forward to doing it more to help me be more focused on the Word and live it out. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  17. Wendy Carpenter 3 years ago

    I am brand new to Bible journaling! I just started this month. After a couple of rough years, I knew I needed something “fresh” in my Bible reading. So I searched Bible journaling and found Illustrated Faith videos on YouTube. I ordered a journaling bible and some sticker collections to get started. I am journaling through the Psalms this year and this collection is just too cute!!

  18. Lydia Cost 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for over 2 years now. I’m pretty sure I did it long before I knew it was a thing. I have always been a hands on learner and had a creative soul. I felt God’s call to share my creativity with the ladies at my church by starting a Bible Journaling group. We haven’t met for a few weeks, but I’m certain this beautiful collection will keep us coming back for more really soon. Thank you so much, Shanna, for making Faith mainstream, and for sharing your journey with us. I can’t wait to get my hands on this kit!

  19. Judy Covington 3 years ago

    I learned of bible art journaling watching YouTube videos. I was so inspire by this expressive way of getting ito the word. I have spent the past few months watch videos and collecting supplies. I recently purchased the Beautiful Word Bible and a few of the monthly devotionals. I feel so connected with this form of growing closer to God and meditating on his word. I am so blessed that I have this discovered this form of worship and that there is resources out there to help me walk this path.

  20. Diana 3 years ago

    Wow! This collection is so beautiful!! ?? I am new to bible journaling I believe I started two months ago I was having such a hard time spending time in the Word. With bible journaling not only do I spend more time in the Word but I get to meditate on it and I feel myself growing in Him in my faith. You all are such and inspiration to me I had no idea that such a thing as bible journaling existed. I love to get crafty and what a wonderful way to combine my love for the Lord and crafting. You guys do amazing things can’t wait to use these goodies! God bless y’all! ?

  21. Amanda Huizenga 3 years ago

    This kit is just GORGEOUS!!!

    I have been Bible Journaling now for about 7 months, and am HOOKED! I have bought almost all of the IF devo kits and they have really helped me in feeling excited about reading my Bible and worshipping God in this new way! I heard of it thru Heather Greenwood, and knew Shanna a bit from my digital scrapbooking community at The-Lilypad. Thanks for all of these great opportunities to win goodies!

  22. Melissa Ward 3 years ago

  25. Regina Layton 3 years ago

    I started about six months ago but it’s nothing that I have been doing steady. I have been taking any classes I am able to find as I am not the most creative person, I need guidance and HELP!

  26. Amanda L 3 years ago

    This is beautiful! I’m fairly new to Bible journaling. I wanted a way to integrate my creativity with my Bible study, and this has been a fun way to re-enforce what God is showing me!

  27. Ashley Bennett Porter 3 years ago

    Adorable! I love everything about this sweet kit.

    • Ashley Bennett Porter 3 years ago

      I am new to bible journaling. Only about 3 months, but I feel like I’ve gained so much more in those short months than I have over all the years I have tried to make scripture study a part of my daily life.

  28. Rachel Brolsma 3 years ago

    I am brand new to Bible journaling. Needed a creative outlet that also allowed me to spend time with the Lord. Super excited to learn more and more!!

  29. Tara Morgan 3 years ago

    Thank you for this opportunity. I have been Bible journaling for about 10 years. I have used a kit, I have just written in notebooks and in the margin of my Bible. Again thank you.

  30. Amor Love 3 years ago

    What a beautiful collection! I am new to this bible journaling journey! I started a week ago, that’s how new! I’ve had one bible my entire life that’s almost falling apart, and notes are fading, but I searched for a new bible and thought about investing in a large one so that I can create imagery & then came across this beautiful community of Believers, & praising & worshiping through art! Brilliant! I was immediately drawn to this site and the products, that I didn’t know where to start! I tweeted y’all and asked, & im so grateful that you guys at illustrated faith tweeted me back with great insight & information! I wish I can buy everything, lol little by little as I start my journey with bible journaling! Thank you for this opportunity! Blessings!

    Gorgeous products and
    I love the banner! I haven’t
    gotten into Bible journaling
    yet, I do scrapbook, make
    cards and use a planner
    though. These would
    work great in each of
    these categories.

    I’ve been bible journaling for about a year now and it just fills me with joy every time I finish a page in my bible.

  33. Theresa Elliott 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling since the very beginning of the very first post. I was a subscriber to studio calico for several years and used to follow Shanna when she was on the design team there. So the very first time she talked about her blog post on the studio calico boards is when I started journaling!

  34. Kendra Wenzel 3 years ago

    I am brand new to Bible journaling and have been a bit aprehensive to dive in and actually put paint to paper! I have purchased almost all of the kits but have yet to use one. Going to do one this weekend no matter how scared I am! Lol! Thanks so much for all of the beautiful work you do!

  35. Gayle Bond 3 years ago

  36. Abigail Clone 3 years ago

    I have been Bible Journaling for about a year and a half now! I absolutely LOVE it and I’m so glad I discovered it from my dear friend Elaine!

  37. Victoria Amber Sims 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for a few months so I guess you could say that I am a beginner! And I absolutely love it! I find myself actually wanting to dive into God’s word and it is amazing how much time you can spend just on one portion of scripture.

  38. Anne DeHart 3 years ago

    I’ve been Bible journaling almost since the beginning of the Facebook group, I think there were 300 members when I joined! It’s been a huge blessing in my life! I love birds so much, so this new collection looks amazing!

  39. Nancy Johnston 3 years ago

    I’m very new to Bible journaling, but the Bella team and Shannon have been my mentors and inspiration for many, many months prior as well. I’m having such fun in the Word, and it makes me so happy to really “get” some of the scriptures and imbed their truths better by lingering a bit on them.

    Thanks so much.

  40. Wendy Carpenter 3 years ago

    I am brand new to Bible Journaling! I just started this month. I was looking for a fresh way to read God’s word and looked into journaling. I am journaling through the Psalms this year and this collection looks so cute!

  41. Stefany Brizuela 3 years ago

    I’ve just started this week to Bible journaling. I’ve seen it before in different social media streams but this time I thought it would inspire me to really reflect on what the Bible says and not just read it. Being creative and journaling opens up a whole new perspective on scripture and that’s what inspired me to begin this journey. I want to apply this to my daily life not just toss it away.

  42. Susan Ramirez 3 years ago

    I started almost five years ago. It was helping me get through the stress of my father and my husband having the same cancer at the same time. When I lost them I wasn’t able to touch my journaling bible again. It’s been a year and I am just now trying to begin again. Thank you for this opportunity to win your beautiful gifts. God bless you all.

  43. Melissa Burud 3 years ago

    While I have followed bible journaling for a year or so, I’ve just recently gotten myself started. The beauty that was being created in God’s word is how I became interested.

  44. Jennifer 3 years ago

    Hiii! I am new to bible journaling. What got me interested is that I get to be creative with God’s word. I feel that being creative helps me learn and better understand the word. I love arts and craft so for me this is amazing! I never thought about coloring my bible. But now I love it!

  45. Te Lee 3 years ago

    I just started bible journaling a couple months ago. I started doing it after i saw some videos from illustrated faith on youtube. I love arts and crafts so i thought it would inspire me to think deeper, and it really has.

  46. Jewel 3 years ago

    Oh what a BEAUTIFUL collection! ??

  47. Christa Adair 3 years ago

    I’ve been Bible Journaling since 2015, playing around a little. Then I met Shanna in Italy and now I’m on fire!! I’m so grateful for that girl! xo

  48. Julie Garcia-Matus 3 years ago

    My youngest (12) and I are pretty new to this! I’ve been a fan of IL and was afraid to dive in. Not sure why, maybe bc of all the beautiful pages that are posted on social media? Want to continue on this journey with my daughter and show her this is an awesome community to be a part of! Also, to include the Bible in our everyday. =)

  49. Lori Maag 3 years ago

    What a beautiful & simple kit!! I have been officially Bible journaling since Christmas 2016, so I am a complete newbie!!! My Christmas gift for myself was some of the devotional kits when they were on sale, as this was my first devotional experience as well. I was so excited about the products that I bought my Mom some of the kits & tools as well to share these with her!! I’m a scrapbooker, so when I was introduced to your website & products everything spoke to my heart & I’ve found a whole new meaning to illustrating My faith. Thank you for this blessing & opportunity!!

  50. Amber Reeves 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for almost a yr. Not as much asI’d like, but when I feel the Lord leading me in a page.

  51. Jenny Markgraf 3 years ago

    Love this collection, its Adorable! I have been “collecting” bible journaling supplies for several months but haven’t taken the plunge to do my first full page yet. Nervous! I have the inspire bible that I am currently coloring in though. I think I first seen it on Facebook or on a Youtube video and fell in love!

  52. I started Bible Journaling about a year and a half ago. I had attended a few classes and always left feeling like the classes lacked “substance.” They were fun classes and the demonstrations were neat. But I left each class always feeling there seemed to be something missing.

    I found IF on iG and began praying about my own personal process of Bible Journaling. The more I prayed, the stronger feeling I had to SHARE. So I prayed about sharing.

    One year later, I’ve written (well, the Lord has written through me) “Bible Journaling 101,” an intro class to the HEart of creative Bible Journaling. Along with this intro class to Bible Journaling, the Lord has delivered and allowed me to lead 2 six week and 1 four week Bible Journaling Studies. Over the course of the past year, one of the six week studies was offered twice. This past fall I served in leading a Prayer Planner Class that introduces a Daily Bible Doodling (DBD) process which introduces journaling on a daily basis through the fun art of doodling on planner pages.

    Each study and class I’ve offered has amazed me because of how the Lord touches, leads, and encourages the participants! It’s as though the studies were written specifically for each person present. I’m still so humbled that the Lord would choose me to write and lead these studies and classes.

    What I discovered missing from those early classes I first attended was JESUS… God’s Word. In each of the classes I attended, the focus was more on the ART. So I wrote the studies and classes I’ve offered with a focus on the HEart (emphasis on the HE- Jesus.)

    It has been an amazing ride! I say that as I tighten my grip and begin to write the third six week Bible Journaling Bible study. Whoa! Prayers are appreciated :)

  53. I am so grateful for this new form of worship. It has opened my eyes and formed a deeper love for bible study, and a firmer relationship with Jesus Christ.

  54. Jill Drangsholt 3 years ago

    I love this new collection and can’t wait to see what everyone does with it! I’ve been bible journaling for about 4 months now. :-)

  55. Angie Boob 3 years ago

    I’ve been Bible journaling for nearly 6 months now, and it’s been such a game-changer for me. I was never a “quiet time” person, and always felt SO guilty about that as I have amazing faithful women in my family & my life who are great examples for me! But this — this really got me EXCITED about opening the pages. Not just in desperation for answers, not just for filling in the Bible study blanks, but for connection. I broke open the plastic and did my first page at a workshop with Shanna and now I can’t stop! Thank you, Shanna, for this gift you’ve shared with us! It’s personal, but you stepped out in obedience and shared. I love hearing through the podcasts how it’s changing not only lives & habits of others but really a whole industry, too! Yay!

  56. Cindy Young 3 years ago

    Love the new collection! The colors are so bright and spring-like …the perfect medicine for our dreary Michigan winters! I am brand new at bible journaling as of the first of this year!

  57. Sheila Smith 3 years ago

    Thank you so much for offering this beautiful Seeds of Faith set to one of your loving followers! It is such a sweet set! I first started Art Bible Journaling about 1 1/2 years ago. I am amazed at how much more I can remember about what the Lord has shown me when I put it in art! Thank you so much for inspiring us all to use the creativity that the Lord gave us to honor and glorify Him!

  58. Miranda 3 years ago

    I discovered Bible journaling about a year ago but have yet to find my rhythm with it.

  59. Vicky 3 years ago

    I am just starting. Hope this re-energizes my desire to be in God’s Word.

  60. Christy Peeler Banton 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for a little over a year. I’ve always used art as an outlet, bible journaling really intrigued me. I feel like I am completely immersed in the word and that I have a better understanding of it all. I love the Illustrated Faith products❤️

  61. Danielle VanErem 3 years ago

    I have been journaling for about a year and a half now! I love it! I have always been a painter/creative person and my bible time was getting a little dull. It was hard to motivate myself to get in the word, but combining two passions in one has been amazing! I learned about bible journaling from a friend and pinterest and the rest is history :)

  62. Michelle Steverson 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for almost two years now. I had been struggling with my faith for quite some time. I was browsing Pinterest and came across a pin. Since that time I have repaired my relationship with Christ so much. I know I have a long way to go still, but this journey has been amazing. I am journaling in two bibles now, one will be for my daughter on her graduation day next year.
    I can’t thank this community enough for pulling me closer to my faith. Thank you.

  63. Sheryl Moore 3 years ago

    I’m a newbie to Bible journaling. Been scrapping since the 90’s so this really intrigued me! Plus needing to get back into the word and in connection with God is what’s most important in this new venture!

  64. Tifany J 3 years ago

    This collection is amazing! So cute!

  65. Kayla Hemmerle 3 years ago

    I’m new-ish to Bible journaling. I tried in the past but got hung up on wanting things to look perfect and I can’t draw for anything. So I stepped away from it. Then I came back and I’ve really been just allowing myself to relax in the Word. Ironically, relaxing has helped me be more creative and connect in deeper ways. This new collection looks so cute!

  66. Cheryl Parker 3 years ago

    I’m relatively new to Bible journaling. I love how it encourages me to connect with the Word in a whole new way.

  72. Emily Lay 3 years ago

    I’ve been hearing about Illustated Faith for a while and I was finally able to get my first Journaling Bible and the starter kit this past Christmas! I have loved it and even got the Goals with Grace kit. I told a friend and now I will be hosting a women’s group where I will show them all about Bible Journaling. Getting a kit like this would really help me out a lot.

  73. Angela Meloserdoff 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for about a year, maybe a year and a half. I don’t get to do it as much as I’d like, but I love to do it when I have the time! I love to bible journal with my best friend, and I think it would be so fun to win this and share it with her! We have lived next door to each other for almost 4 years and we are moving…not too far, but farther than next door so now the times we are together we will cherish so much more! Thanks for the opportunity, and I can wait to see this new collection!

  74. Amy 3 years ago

    So, with the last month or so is when I found out about bible journaling and that they have ones you can color. For me coloring is a very relaxing, minimal stressful activity that is fun. I noticed I haven’t been spending as much time in my original bible, so it hopes to dive deeper into the word daily, I decided to venture off the beaten path and bought one. I have to say it has changed my life. Not only is it great to color and have the space to be creative, but it’s nice to share it with others! I will always love this bible!!

  75. Christel Boyd 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for about a year and a half. I loved it form the first time I saw a post on Pinterest. So much so that with in 4 months of starting I was leading a group of ladies weekly at my church. I just started my 3rd semester!

  78. Tracy Dove 3 years ago

    I am new to bible journaling. I am going through some tough times and finding it difficult to get started and stay in the word. I know I need to stay grounded in faith to guide me through. Maybe this kit will help me to jumpstart it. Thanks for all you do.

  79. Crissy Ladd 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for about a year. I am a busy mom of 4, aged 10-1, and when they are down for the night I get out my Bible and all my stickers & washi & paints & pens and I have my “me” time!

  80. I am pretty new into bible journaling, formally started just this January, but I found myself constantly searching for it since last year. I love how it becomes a way for me to creatively express my happiness, prayers, hopes, worries, etc. thru God’s words.

  81. Laura Shapiro 3 years ago

    I feel new to this.. I’m still learning and working on some design ideas plus a new journaling Bible is awaiting me.

  83. Nataliya 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling for a year and a half. Love using my talents from God to grow deeper in His word! I have met so many wonderful women because of the Bible journaling community.

  84. Heidi Petterson 3 years ago

    I’ve been Bible journaling for approximately 20 months but I didn’t discover Illustrated Faith until the spring of 2016, I think it was. Lists of Faith was the first kit I was able to buy so whenever that was available, I guess.
    I first learned about journaling “by accident” (when God is involved, I don’t believe in accidents). I joined a ladies Bible study through my church that was “Bible journaling”. I showed up with a Bible, a note journal, a pencil & pen thinking that we just took notes on specific passages/books we read. Boy was I surprised to find out it was so much more!
    I have always enjoyed art. It was my “major” in high school and I pursued some in college. However, as a homeschool mom of two boys, a lot of my art had been pushed aside for a long time. I still did some sewing & quilting a bit and learned to crochet but my drawing, painting, etc had been replaced. Or I thought it had. Once I learned that first night at my study what Bible journaling was I couldn’t believe it. Like I said, God doesn’t work in coincidences, He had this in His plan for me. He knew how much I needed to use these gifts He had given me in my life again.
    2015 was, by far, the hardest year I can remember having. Literally in the first three months of that year I lost 4 family members. Two were naturally due to old age and God took them home, but two were a terrible tragedy that’s still difficult to wrap my head around, almost two years later.
    But God!! In His infinite grace He allowed me the gift of discovering Him in my art again. And it has helped me to heal and be restored and grow more in the grace and knowledge of the glorious love of my Heavenly Father.

    I just started bible journaling a few months ago, after a big move that brought my family to NY from MD; leaving my parents, friends, job, and church. I felt the need to connect and had seen bible journaling on Pinterest. I finally took the plunge and ordered the Blessings or Lessons kit when it was on sale, and it truly sparked a desire to continue.

  86. Nicole Culver 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for almost 2 years but really didn’t discover IF until a year ago. Once I discovered IF it was petal to the floor in creative worship and I haven’t looked back. Not everyone gets it, not everyone agrees with it but I have learned SO much in the past year and God keeps meeting me to show me amazing and hard things. The journey He has taken me on has been one of strengthening and as hard as it may be at times its been beautiful!!!

  87. Heather Reddick 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for about a year now. I was so eager to dig into the Bible but I was intimidated be new to my walk with Christ. But seeing others connect to Christ through their creativity made it fun and exciting rather than intimidating and helped me so much.

  88. Tara Nixon Cox 3 years ago

    I love this collection! I’m fairly new to Bible journaling, still discovering my style and experimenting with different supplies and embellishments. This looks like it would be fun & easy to work with ❤️

  89. Rebecca 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for about two years I think. It’s amazing to look back and see things like my word of the year for each year and see what I have been taking note of.

  90. Missy L Brown 3 years ago

    I have been Bible Journaling for about a year. There is really nothing like it…

  91. Jennifer Casey 3 years ago

    I’m coming up on my first full year of Bible Journaling and I am so excited to see what this next year brings!

  92. Cindy Pool 3 years ago

    I saw Shanna Noel’s bible online back when she was first bible journaling. I got excited, contacted her asking all kinds of questions. I went out and bought a bible like hers and got started. Bible Journaling does help to bring the Word alive and real.

  93. Rebecca Ray 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling a little over a year now :-)

  94. Jan Kardell 3 years ago

    I’m started Bible journaling about six months ago. I love how it gets me really meditating on God’s word by spending more time in it!

  95. Kim Lawson 3 years ago

    To be quite honest, I haven’t spent much time in my bible at all for a while now. And I’ve been feeling disconnected from God, even though I know that isn’t really possible. I was on Instagram looking at creative planning posts and there was a photo that caught my eye. It turned out to be a bible journal and I saw the #biblejournaling and clicked it. It’s a “whole new world”! ? I’ve recently been feeling the pull to do more journaling and traditional scrap booking (where I’ve so far only done planners) and I feel like this morning I figured out why I’ve felt that pull and it’s all come together for me RIGHT HERE. So my bible journaling with God begins now.

  96. Teri Piver 3 years ago

    I have been wanting to Bible journal for a year, but ha won’t broken through yet. So I would say I am ew to it.

  97. Elizabeth Young 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journal-ing since this past summer, though I had known about it for much longer than that. I really started when one of my friends started and encouraged me.

  98. Jewel 3 years ago

    I Praise God for this wonderful community of Faith Illustrators that has seemed to blossom over the past couple of years! I am a crafter and lover of Jesus and enjoy sooooo much following all of the Pins, Blogs and Instagram posts! My girlfriend and I taught a little mini Bible Study two summers ago where we illustrated our lessons each week with a different type of technique – it was soooo much FUN (but a lot of work ?). Since then I have simply enjoyed watching how the IF community has grown. My husband and I are older parents with 3 very active teenagers and between my regular Bible studies and supporting my children in all of their sporting events – I have not given much time to my creative interests. I hope to change that in this coming year – I hope to find a balance that will allow time with Jesus, family AND art!

  99. Christie Selken 3 years ago

    I just started Bible journaling around Christmas last year, so I’m a newbie. I wanted to spice up my time with the word, and it has!

  100. Maggie Hamlin 3 years ago

    I’m only a few months into Bible Journaling. When I discovered you could learn the word and be creative at the same time, I was hooked! I’ve been a Christian most of my life, but wasn’t very familiar with the Bible and knew this would be a good way to learn. Creating is a passion of mine, so it was the perfect combination:)

  101. Tammy Wolters 3 years ago

    I have only been Bible journaling since April 2016. I received my first journaling Bible for my birthday. Even though I am 48, I consider myself a toddler when it comes to understanding the Bible. I thought I had a relationship with God but I was wrong! I am now reading my Bible every night, I write a verse every day and I am attending a Bible Study with my daughter on the book of Revelation….what an eye opener! Thank you!

  102. Donna Berry 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling for years even before it had a name. I did it with my mom where we would draw, color and put stickers in her Bible, but we eventually stop doing it. After my mom died i decided i wanted to get back to Bible journaling and found out about Shanna Noel and thus began my journaling again. I have been journaling for a few years now and so much growth has happened. At first in my journaling i was doing it just for the pretty pages, but now I journal as part of my worship and studies.

  103. Cheryl Hutcherson 3 years ago

    I’m fairly new to Bible Journaling. My friend, Tina, first introduced me to it and I’m so glad she did. Once I found IF, it was a done deal!

  104. Tiffany Bliss 3 years ago

    I started Bible journaling in Sept 2015 (the only way I know this is I wrote the date in the front of my Bible- thanks past me!!!). I am enjoying it so much. I was inspired to try Bible journaling after watching some YouTube videos & Instagram pics.
    My Bible is very full and I considered starting a new one for 2017, but part of me didn’t want to move out of it yet. I am excited to see how much I can pack into it this year!
    I love this community and am so thankful for the supplies & printables you have created. Thank you!!!!!

  105. Nicole Freeman 3 years ago

    I learned about bible journaling in 2015 I believe. I saw a post from Shanna Noel when it was just her blog and there was no webiste or Illustrated Faith community on facebook – well at least I was not aware of it at the time. I’ve been in love with it ever since! I must admit that I don’t jump in as much as I would like to because I let other things get in my way but I am very happy to have stumbled across Shanna!

  106. Tammy Schlinker Lever 3 years ago

    I haven’t started yet! I have been seeing a lot of it everywhere in the blogverse and I am slowly thinking that this is something that I would like to try! A bible journal would make an amazing heirloom to pass along in my family!

  107. Dawn Finley 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for about a year with the “pretty stuff” but have always written thoughts, prayers etc in my bible for the past 30 years. Thanks for the chance.

  108. Megan Gillman 3 years ago

    Its official… This is my #2 year. I have displayed my retired Bible in my living room on a book stand and its great to look back at the journey i have been on. The dates from last year and look at His word EVERYDAY. Its a piece of art? No… its a piece of me and my family growing in His word. Thank you Illustrated Faith for this…. onto my next journey with Christ for this year 2017 in my new Bible!!!

  109. Cynthia Arwood 3 years ago

    I am not new to art, but I AM new to Bible Journalling. I really want to get a journalling Bible. I wish they made one in the MSG version, but since I can’t find one, I hope to get an NLT one for my birthday in February.

  110. Nickie Hurdle 3 years ago

    I’m fairly new to Bible journaling…I stumbled across it one day by accident while searching for a particular pen to write with in my Bible that wouldn’t bleed through the pages. I used to scrapbook alot and I love to craft/make/create things ALMOST as much as I love to dig in for Bible study. Bible journaling seemed like the best of both worlds! I don’t think I’ve been this excited about something in years!!?

  111. Michelle Salazar 3 years ago

    Not new been taking notes in my bible for ever but so thankful that I now feel free to do take notes and color in my bible without feeling guilty about marking my bible up. It is freeing and fun now and I love the colors on this line of paper so pretty!

  112. Allison 3 years ago

    I received my journaling bible last year on Mothers Day. I heard abut Illustrated Faith bible journaling on a blog that I follow. I fell in love with it and told my husband about it so he got me the bible as a gift. I have just started journaling this month. I am so new and I have been scouring the internet for inspiration and am in awe of what I have seen. I am using my journaling as a way to better remember scripture and mark areas that will help me and my family in our lives. Thank you for all the inspiration!

  113. Clare Long 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for nearly two years, and love the birds in this set as a family of bird lovers!

  114. Melissa Bell 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for a little over a year now. I followed Shanna when she was a scrapbooker and kept following her as she shifted to bible journaling and illustrated faith.

  115. Susan Fichter 3 years ago

    I’ve journaling in my bible for a little pver a year now and got inspired by watching videos and seeing all the beautiful examples on Pinterest.

  116. Charity Hall 3 years ago

    I found Illustrated Faith through Dayspring online while I was looking for cards. It peaked my interest as I love to do all sorts of Arts and crafts. I watched a few YouTube videos of Shanna and others and also started seeing pics of Bible art journaling on Pinterest. The very first devotional set I bought was Blessing or Lessons and I’m actually still finishing it. I’m a mom of 3 little ones and it can be challenging to find the time to ‘color’ in my Bible. I’ve started letting my oldest do it with me and that has been fun! This set made me think of working with my girls and would love to use it with them!

  117. Jackie 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for just over a year now, and on to my second journaling bible! For some time before I started it, I kept seeing a couple friends who would post their illustrated faith expressions and a bit about what they were learning through that passage or message. It looked like such an innovative concept to be able to freely and creatively express your time in the word, and o course I was awed by so many of the things they did. After some time of observation and a period of dryness in my own reading times, I felt the Lord pulling me in the same direction and I knew this was the next step He had for me. It came as such a refreshment, and once again I became excited to spend that time in His word with Him. It’s still a great joy as I learn more artistically as well as get more personal in the bible. So thankful for how it’s changed my walk with Him!

  118. Tess Crawford 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling for almost two years. I just counted my pages and looked at my first page yesterday! It’s so fun to look back through my Bible to see all that God has been saying to me over these last two years. It’s almost like my Bible sings!

  119. Debbie Minter 3 years ago

    I am new to bible journaling. I love the new ideas.

  120. Schanna Bodkin 3 years ago

    I have journaled about six months now. This a way I can leave a legacy to my daughter. I have battling pancreatic cancer and God has sustained me for a divine purpose. Each day, hour and second is a gift and by highlighting those special scriptures my daughter and husband will have a piece of my soul that I hold the dearest, knowing, serving and worshipping out Savior. So this is not for me, but a journal she can always know how much Jesus and the Bible have meant to me.

  121. Marijo Napier 3 years ago

    Oh.my.goodness! So adorable! Can’t wait for these to hit the store!

  122. Laura Millhouse 3 years ago

    Still new/interested. It’s probably a year since I started. I move slowly and am enjoying my own pace. This line is too adorable!

  123. Abby Burr 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling since January of 2016!

  124. Leigh Kelley 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling since August 2015. When I discovered this I started doing it with the hopes that it would help me read my Bible more. And so far it has worked. I really enjoy this process and the way it has helped me connect with God more.

  125. Angel 3 years ago

    I have been Bible journaling for about a year. It took me a little while to take the plunge but I’m glad I did! I just adore this line – the colours are so pretty and the birdies are too cute! Thank you for the chance, God bless!

  126. Dale Wine 3 years ago

    Elaine! I love this kit!
    One of my favorite childhood memories is tickling my Uncle Clay. He was onl 18 years older than me and was more like a big brother. He was so ticklish! He would try to tickle me buti was hard to hold on to and could get free and tickle him. Thank you for helping me remember that and for the smiles

  127. Kelly Czapski 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for almost a year. I came across it on Instagram and knew I needed to try this form for worship. This community is amazing and I even got my mom to join in!

  128. Karen Tegeler 3 years ago

    I have been wanting to try this form of worshipping for at least a year but am scared spit-less. I’m not an artist at all. But I enjoy other’s art work and have even purchased some of IF’s great help. Now I just need to make it happen.

  129. Elizabeth Law 3 years ago

    I’m new to Bible Journaling. I moved to the States in August to teach here and discovered it at free workshop at a local Christian store. It’s been a blessing in helping me feel less homesick and closer to God during a stressful time :)

  130. Devon Williams 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for about 2 months now. I always tried to do a devotional or journal here and there during the week but never felt truly connected. I saw an Instagram post from an author I like who bible journals. That’s where the spark ignited. Her journaling made the message of the words jump out at me. When I started journaling myself, I felt a greater connection to the words I was reading. Bible journaling allowed me to have a greater connection AND be creative. It’s a win win!

  131. Samantha Gilstrap 3 years ago

    I started dabbling in Bible journaling last year.
    I came across your devotion kits back in November. I ordered a few and dove in. I LOVE Bible journaling. Your products make it so easy and I love my time spent in the Word. It’s my favorite time of the day!!

  132. Carrie Kelley 3 years ago

    I started bible journaling about a year ago. It was something I just stumbled upon when I discovered a journal bible at lifeway. I started just taking notes in my journal bible but then couldn’t help but get creative with it. One day I just decided to search Pinterest on bible journaling and I found illustrated faith! The rest is history. My relationship with Jesus comes alive when illustrating my faith in Him. My love for him has grown tremendously and His love for me is now known that it is ever present!

  133. krystal 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for almost two years now and it has changed my walk with God and and my life forever. I crave time in the word like never before. I seek time daily to open up my bible and study the word and I just love creating in my faith.

  134. Debbie Davis 3 years ago

    My daughter got me my first journaling Bible for Christmas 2015. I had been seeing some Facebook friends post their Bible art, and it intrigued me, so I had been talking to my daughter about it. When I opened the Bible Christmas morning, I was very excited to get started. It’s definitely therapy for the weary soul!

  135. Sheena Pritchard 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for a few years now. I’ve always written in my bible, but my bible art journaling came out of my love for mixed media and art journaling in general. I love the way it has both brought me closer to the Lord and personalised the bible for me. In a way nothing else ever has :) This release is amazing, an de I think has got to be my favourite to date. I can’t wait for it to hit the shops.

  136. Izzy M 3 years ago

    I just started Bible Journaling today. My mother showed me this website and I fell in love. I got some supplies and a new Bible (the perfect excuse ;) ) and here I am! I love the way I can use my talents while praising God and studying scripture. Thank you!

  137. Amy Keller-Bilotta 3 years ago

    Almost two years now, and it has changed my life!

  138. Kristy 3 years ago

    I have been journaling for about 2yrs on & off. I was inspired by one of my church sisters. We started off journaling together. I enjoy how it helps me bring scripture to life & a deeper understanding of Gods word.

  139. Andrea Acosta 3 years ago

    I’ve been at it for about a year! I had been using crayola twistables to color code my study through Proverbs, and then aw some IF stuff, and expanded from there!

  140. Kelly Thompson 3 years ago

    I’m still pretty new at Bible Journaling. I seem to be more of a spectator but I have great hopes to become a more avid participant. I became involved by happening upon Illustrated Faith one day!

  141. Heather Hefner 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for around a year (a little less) but it’s just recently become something I do everyday. It’s really become one of my absolute favorite ways to worship. I love the creativity it sparks in me. I love the way it facilitates “meditating” on His word all day. I love that my children and husband see my submersion into the word. I love being able to look back and see my heart illustrated in the pages of my Bible for different seasons.

  142. Heather OBarr 3 years ago

    I am fairly new to bible journaling and am loving all the bright, pretty colors I get to add to my bible!

  143. Kristen Harvey 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for more than a year as a way to grow in my walk with Christ. After experiencing a dry season this has really helped my hunger for the word. Illustrated Faith has the most fun and beautiful goodies!

  144. Jacqueline Giesbrecht 3 years ago

    I’m fairly new to Bible Journaling. Got my journalling Bible December 2016 for my birthday from my sister and a bunch of wonderful supplies from my Mom and Dad. I’ve been doing some mixed media faith journalling for about a year and have been inspired by doing art right in my Bible from magazines, blogs, pinterest, and friends.

  145. Mariana Paris 3 years ago

    I’m in high school right now, and i’ve only been Bible Journaling for a little bit, I’m pretty new lol. I’d wanted to do it for a long time, i loved the idea of using art to get into the Word, but i was kinda intimidated and wasn’t sure where to start. My mom got me a journaling Bible and took me to an intro class, and after that I’ve been learning more and more along the journey. Your products have been very helpful, and i love all of them!!

  146. Julie Daniell 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling close to a year now. After a difficult episode in my life, God showed and blessed me with this gift.

  147. Laura Jones 3 years ago

    I am new to it…haven’t really started yet, but I ‘m getting ready to start. What got me interested is the beautiful posting I have seen on Instagram.

  148. Heather Lee 3 years ago

    This collection is ADORBS! I have been bible journaling for maybe a year now. I was searching lettering techniques on Instagram and came across Amber Bolton – she had me hook, line and sinker! She was so inspiring that we had her out to our church this past Friday and all the gals fell in love with her technique! I love adding art and color to my daily reading!

  149. Teresa 3 years ago

    Love, love, love Bible journaling. Been doing it about 9 months.

  151. Gail Maynard 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for almost a year. I fell in love with it when I saw the supplies at the local Christian bookstore! It’s my main obsession. ?

  152. I’m new in bible journaling. I started to illustrate my Bible in January 2, 2017. My desire of to write, create, read and understand the Word is the reason for my bible journaling. It was heavenly experience. I can’t stop to illustrate my Bible.

  153. Sara V Monge 3 years ago

    I can’t have enough of those little birdies! Love the colors and the little messages that can be found in these pieces. Thanks for bringing all these cute collections for us. Bible journaling is my new thing thanks to Illustrated Faith.

  154. Sarah 3 years ago

    I have been journaling since August 2016, newbie!! I found you on maybe Instagram? I don’t know, but it was like I was being lead to join in on this prasie because everytime I would go online I would stumble across something and finally I dove in! I can’t look back and now my family knows what to get me for any occassion! Thank you for all that you do to inspire us to get more in the word.

  155. Carley Hanlon 3 years ago

    Almost a year and a half <3

  156. Sandy MacDonald 3 years ago

    I started by using my superseded Salvation Army song book in April last year as an entry to get creative in my faith while recycling/repurposing something that was no longer useful. In around September I cracked open a bible to illustrate too.
    I switch between the two and use this time to soak in God’s word in a way that complements the depth of studying it.

  157. Alison 3 years ago

    I have been journaling in my Bible for about a year. I actually began writing key words in various colors to draw attention to certain passages before I knew about illustrated Faith. I found IF on Instagram and began looking at things also on the website and Pinterest. I am hooked and so love this process as a way to worship and connect with my Savior!! Thank you for the opportunity to use new products!

  158. Barbara 3 years ago

    I’ve been journaling for about 14 months. I came across posts on Instagram and started following several individuals and then found IF. I love the devotional kits and my own daily devotionals to illustrate and journal. It’s my favorite time of the day when I am able to spend this quiet time of worship with our Lord. I am so grateful to all of the ladies of IF.

  159. Sherri 3 years ago

    So excited for new materials to come out!! There’ll be no end to what we can create!!

  160. Jessal Strecker 3 years ago

    I just started journaling in my Bible this month. I had art in my studies and separate papers but finally made my first art in my journaling Bible. I decided I wanted to leave something for my kids and grandkids to see that reflected my relationship with Jesus.

  161. Jodi Faust 3 years ago

    I consider myself a newbie to Bible journaling. I bought my first journaling Bible in March, 2016…and the 2nd in September, 2016…and the 3rd for Christmas, 2016. I’m still trying to figure out my “style”, but I have plenty of room to grow.

  162. Andrea Bjork 3 years ago

    I started in October of 2015 and found a picture online of a journaling bible and fell in love!!

  163. Alma Blinn 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for a couple of years. My oldest daughter Alora found out about bible art journaling on Pinterest. We have been doing it together ever since. We have even taught a class at a church and we are going to be doing a workshop at our women’s church retreat next month.

  164. Adel Otto 3 years ago

    I started bible journaling in January 2015, not long after Shanna Noel started posting her work. Her ideas instantly inspired me to create in my bible.

  165. Shelby Koelz 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling for about 5 months now and it has connected me to God and brout a peac into my life i can’t fully understand. After a long time of seeing pics on Pinterest and think “wow how pretty ” or “I could never do that” I Finaly stared to research bible journaling and get a perspective on what it would mean to me. I Finaly decided to take the plunge when I saw a few people I looked up to had also started on this new adventure. I’m so glad that I did because I feel like it has opens and exspanded my creativity. I feel closer to God in a time in high school when it’s hard to be different and not follow the crowed. I go to a very diverse school and with that comes many difrences that create conflict. I used to think why don’t I have a lot of friend at school and it would bother me. But through bible journaling and being closer to God I have connected spiritually with more people and deeply value their friendships.

  166. Shannon Godfrey 3 years ago

    I would say I’m fairly new and actually happened upon it by accident…although I’m positive God worked it all out. I showed up at church on a Wednesday night last August to begin a Bible Study I had signed up for only to realize the class I intended to take didn’t begin until September. In looking for a place to go I ended up interrupting a Bible Journaling class that had begun that night and they invited me to stay. I’ve been going ever since and Bible Journaling has become an integral part of my study of the Word.

  167. I am actually new to bible journaling. I have always studied my Bible, wrote in the margins notes that pertained to what I was studying. I also have many notebooks full of studies and thoughts. I saw bible journaling on the Internet and immediately it changed how I studied and took notes. I absolutely love making it personal yet beautiful at the same time.

  168. Danielle 3 years ago

    I have been bible journaling for almost a year now.

    I am new to Bible Journaling. I have wanted to Bible Journal for a while now. I think my friend first introduced it to me but then I found Illustrated Faith and it inspired me to start Bible Journaling. :)

  171. Faye Warriner 3 years ago

    I am really new to Bible Journaling but am excited to explore and create.

  172. Steph Phillips 3 years ago

    I have been journaling since the beginning of 2016 …now have a new Bible for 2017. It has had such an impact on my faith as I have seen God’s narrative for me develop in my Bible. It has given me courage to step into new things with my faith and awaken those areas that were hibernating. Thank You !

  173. Amy White 3 years ago

    Wow, I’m trying to remember when I started bible journaling – it must be getting on for three years now! Time flies when you’re having fun, learning lots and growing closer to Jesus in His Word!

  174. I’ve been journaling since May 2016, it has been an amazing journey! Got interested through you guys! :D

  175. Kristyn Miller 3 years ago

    I’ve been bible journaling since August of 2015. It’s crazy to see all the pages and how much I’ve changed over the years! But the best part is how much closer to God I am – and that relationship is only getting bigger and better!

  176. Marj 3 years ago

    Hello ? I have never tried Bible journalling but I would love to. But currently I am doing this prayer binding thing where I write all my thoughts, well most, my prayers and wishes and my apologies and the things I am thankful for to the Lord. It somehow helps me connect to God more. ?

  177. Julia A Peroutka 3 years ago

    I’m new to bible journaling. I walked in to a Christian store in Seattle, Wa. They were selling the Illustrated Faith products.

  178. Savannah O'Gwynn 3 years ago

    As for my journey with bible journaling- I started a year ago. I was inspired after seeing Shanna’s designs on Pinterest. I never knew I could use my art and designs in my bible! I LOVE it! <3

  179. Hannah Conradson 3 years ago

    I’m sorta new but not too new if that makes sense. I started bible journaling about 5 months ago, but don’t have many supplies. I saw a friend bible journaling at my weekly bible study on Wednesdays and ever since then I was hooked. I love it!

  180. Linda K Wilson 3 years ago

    I have the Praise Book sense last summer and thats all the journaling. I do have a Journal Bible now and just have not started journaling in it yet…

    I got my first journaling bible for my birthday last spring. It took me a while to feel comfortable drawing in my bible. It’s still not an everyday occurrence, but it is a sweet several times a week practice that I look forward to.

    I have been journaling in my bible for about a year and a half using bits and bobs from my scrapbooking and craft supplies, along with the bible studies I have done. I purchased the Goals with Grace kit to try out a monthly devotional kit for the first time and have found myself carving out more and more time in the Word. It is so inspiring to be able to combine my faith and creativity in such a moving way!

    In November of 2015 I started journaling in a bible that a friend gave me that was hers.That same month I entered a bible giveaway contest and won my very first journaling bible and it was the beginning of a creative side I knew I had but never explored. Now I am so comfortable I do multimedia in most pages and love to share with the bible journaling community. I have a sisterhood that Is like a second family. Such a blessing.

    I’ve been journaling 2 years, not always consistent but always connected to my Savior when I do. My relationship with Him has deepened as I’ve spent time journaling what He has put in my heart.

    I started Bible Journaling about 3 years ago but I get to do more in the last 2 years. Actually, Shanna got me interested it when I joined the group on FB and met some friends who never stop encouraging each other.

    I’m brand new here! I can’t remember how I came across bible journaling but as soon as I googled it I was routed to IF and ultimately dayspring. I have everything I need to begin. I’m just trying to figure out the best book to start in! I love illustrated faith and am excited about this journey!

    I have been Bible Journaling since the beginning in 2014. I remember when Shanna first started posting about it on her blog. I fell in love and it has made me so much stronger in my Faith and I feel God in my life so much more since I started. A big hug to Shanna.

    I started journaling a little over a year ago… i’d always used art/crafting as way to engage and express my faith, but had never thought about doing those things in my bible… I think I first saw bible journaling on instagram!

    I’ve been Bible Journaling since Dec 2015. I’ve always loved taking notes in my bible and was mindlessly going through the tags on insta when I found Illustrated Faith! Since then I’ve not looked back. I enjoy spending time in the Word and make sure to carve out time to illustrate my faith as often as I can!

    Thanks for hosting such a beautiful giveaway. You can just see Shanna’s heart behind each detail!

    I’ve been bible journaling for about 2 years, but this year I want to focus on making it apart of my everyday routine!

    I’ve been Bible Journaling for over 20 years. I just didn’t call it “Bible Journaling.” I’ve used multicolored highlighters, pens, pencils… but I never thought to paint, attach notes etc…. I guess because I always had a notebook/journal to do all of that in. I still have multiple journals that I put my notes in.
