Bible Journaling

Who has ever thought of writing in their Bibles? Who has been scolded for it? Well, these days new Bibles are coming out encouraging, calling our creative side out. And no punishment given 😉

This morning, I stopped at Family Christian Store for Bible Journaling. They placed on the table a book with different ways to journal. Some had pictures you could color and others had lines for either drawing or writing on.

This specific store I visited, gave a variety of stickers, no-tear tapes, paint, markers, crayola pencils, etc. After explaining Bible Journaling, they let us roam our creative side. We colored. We talked. Some painted. Some stickered hearts and taped musical notes.

This event was only one hour. But it didn’t feel like one hour passed. After the event, we all sat for a little longer talking. Then, went on our ways.

I liked this event so much and hope Family Christian Store does this frequently. It gave me a chance to meet new people. The manager and one of her employees who led today’s Bible Study were so nice. The manager mentioned a little bit about Family Christian that most people don’t know. She also mentioned her mission trip to Haiti and meeting the children there.

There were only five in our group- a rather small group. But that gave us a chance to talk and express ourselves. A lady that sat beside me, I talked to her before we sat down at the table, she helped me find an Inspired Bible Journaling book. We thought they ran out of those, but she found a few in another area. This same lady also gave me a name to locate online that does Bible Study because I struggle with reading the Bible at times, she thought it would be helpful. I have thought of doing Bible Study. So, that is something I will look into!

So for all those hiding their creative side in their Bibles. Forget all the rules and express yourself! It’s a fun way to relax, meditate, and focus. While doing all three you are also praying, too. It’s like singing, twice you pray! Right? And… you don’t get punished for it 😛

Hello everyone. My name is Lisa. Like many, I have been through a lot. Writing has been a passion of mine. As a child, I dreamed of being a writer, publishing my own book. I created this website in order to share my writings, thoughts, and get to know others who share the same interest as me. Thank you for your time spent on my website. I hope you stop by again! *peace&God Bless* Lisa

  1. I have been writing in my Bible for a very long time! But my daughter is an artist and she recently bought one of those journaling Bibles! I love it. But I also carry around a notebook with my Bible because the margins wouldn’t hold all of my scribbles.

    1. I did the same. I bought another journal. I sat down thinking I’m just gonna color these pages. But I actually found myself interested in the first chapter of Genesis. Even though there were drawings on the first page, I still drew a little of my own. I read, drew, colored, and took notes of Genesis chapter one. Usually when I read, I have trouble remembering what I read. This time I feel like I remembered and can list the 7 things God did before he rested!
