I just finished reading Shana Noel’s new book 10 Ways to Fall in Love With Your Bible and Stay in Love. Dayspring provided this book free for review. I was not required to give a positive review – only an honest one. All opinions are my own. Many of you may already know that Shanna is the fonder and owner of Illustrated Faith, one of the largest online Bible journaling communities. Her enthusiasm for God’s Word and journaling is easy to see now but this book explains it wasn’t always that way for her. This book won’t tell you...Read More
I recently finished reading Illuminated Journaling by Jann Gray. I found this book inspirational and wish I had read it much earlier in my Bible art journaling journey. One of Jann’s favorite phrases is “It’s more about your heart then the art” and that philosophy is very evident in this book. She starts Illuminated Journaling with “the elephant in the room.” Is it okay to draw in your Bible? While her answer (and mine) is yes, not everyone’s will be. Bible art journaling is a very personal undertaking and no two people will approach it exactly the same way. Where...Read More
Today I’m showing various art mediums in the large print Inspire Bible. This is the larger version of the Inspire Bible with all the same drawings (just larger versions) and a larger font.

PENCIL, GEL PEN, (and a tip in) This was done with gel pens for the words “LORD” and “GOD” and the gold ring and the rest of it is...Read More
I use ribbons to mark my place, but when I open to the ribbon and find four chapters on the two pages it marks I often don’t remember which chapter to read next. I sometimes end up reading the same chapter multiple times. An alternate of course is to mark the chapter or write it down, but that’s too cumbersome and I almost never have a pencil handy. If I have to go through extra steps I will eventually stop. Fortunately there’s an easy way around this without having to write anything down and it’s fast and easy. Before...Read More
One of the greatest advantages of the Clarion’s design is the verse numbers blend in more than most Bibles. This makes them easy to ignore and keeps the focus on the text. This is great for reading but it can be difficult for personal study or following along in Church or a group study. It can sometimes take several seconds to find a verse which can be frustrating and even awkward if you’re the preacher or leader. Some editions fix this by making the verse numbers slightly bolder so they stand out more. This works but it can also...Read More
