Why Bible journal? What benefits does it have? Is it disrespectful to God’s word? Is it just coloring or just a trend? What if I don’t want to draw in my Bible? If you’ve ever asked any of these questions I’m trying to help you find the answers. I’ve pulled together some of the best posts I’ve found on the subject so far (and thrown in my opinion as well). Why Bible Journal? I love Bible journaling. Bible journaling can be just words, just pictures, or any combination of the two. It can be done in your Bible or...Read More
I just finished reading Jann Gray’s newest book Stones of Remembrance. This book is all about Legacy Journaling. What is legacy journaling? It’s creating a new type of family Bible. One that helps communicate what is more significant (instead of more immediate like on social media) to those we love in pictures and words in the margins of a Bible.

I am a Dayspring affiliate. I was sent the Created to Create 2 devotional kit free in exchange for posts about it and many of the links in this post are affiliate links.

Getting new journaling supplies or devotionals is always exciting. Some weeks I’m really good at letting that excitement carry over into action, and some...Read More
My main focus when we attend a Bible trade show like Christian Product Expo is Bible journaling. I’m not just interested in art journaling. I like the more traditional writing form of journaling as well, and everything that goes along with both types. Wide Margin Bibles Wide Margin Bibles are great whether you journal with words, artwork, or some combination of the two. Tyndale had their Scribe Bible on display. While I think paraphrases like “The Message” are better as commentary than for serious Bible study this is a nice journaling edition. One more translation finally has a wide-margin...Read More
