Looking for Joy? Find it in Bible Journaling!

    We’re all looking for joy as we go through our day….and through our life. When we discover things that elicit joy in our lives, it can be a transformative and empowering experience.  You may, along with myself and many others, find yourself searching in all the wrong places to find the joy that so easily eludes us when we don’t know where to look. I’ve discovered that when I look for joy on the shelves of my pantry, (chocolate anyone?) the joy doesn’t last long.

    God’s Word is a source of true joy, and Bible journaling is not only fun, but on a deeper level, it offers a unique avenue for discovering His lasting joy as we engage with scripture. It’s rewarding to be able to express yourself artistically while spending time with the Creator of the Universe.  Then you have the privilege of experiencing that joy over and over again when you go back to review what you’ve written down.

Have you ever looked at the beautiful pieces of fancy artwork pictured in other women’s Bible pages on Pinterest boards and concluded that Bible journaling isn’t for you because you don’t have a journaling Bible and can’t even draw a stick figure?  I’ve got good news! You don’t have to. Long before I co-authored “The Complete Guide to Bible Journaling”, I started out micro-journaling in my regular Bible without wide margins.  

 What is micro-journaling anyway?

Micro journaling is simply taking short notes and/or making small doodles in the available space in your Bible so that you can keep...

Do you desperately want to have an intimate relationship with Jesus but you don’t know how to get there? Have you ever wondered why you are overwhelmed with the circumstances in your life while other people seem to authentically trust God?  Do you wish you could live like that? If you’re like me, you’re constantly bombarded with distractions and demands that can keep you from taking the time to read His Word and talk to Him in prayer.

Good news.  

It IS possible to live with purpose and confidence knowing that you are implementing a plan that leaves you feeling invigorated instead of overwhelmed.

In this post I’ve narrowed down a few steps that will help you find the time with God your heart is craving, but keep in mind that no formula will work for every person.  You have to find the plan that works for you personally. This one will get you started. You have to be...

Whether you’ve already decided you want a journaling Bible or you're just wondering what a journaling Bible is, you've come to the right place.   

Before we jump into all the details, let me just point out that a journaling Bible is just like a regular Bible in the text, but it also has wide margins on the sides so that you have place for note taking and artwork.  It’s a great place to write down what you’re learning and keep a record of the time you spend with Jesus. It has been life-changing for me and I hope it is for you too.

Let me preface this article by saying a journaling Bible with wide margins is nice, but...

Make your own Bible Journaling Tip-in

bible journaling Mar 28, 2019

Have you been toying with the idea of journaling about your journey with Jesus but don’t know where to start?  Todays tutorial is just one way to add artwork to your Bible, especially if you don’t have one with wide margins.

If you have a journaling Bible with wide margins, you could do your artwork there, or even in a separate art journal.  There isn’t a right or wrong way to do it, you can simply get started with what you already have on hand. 

 If you don’t have a journaling Bible with margins, you can jump right in with any Bible you already have by doing your art on a piece of paper or vellum, tracing paper or even deli paper that is later inserted into your Bible.  The advantage to trying new techniques on a separate piece of paper is that you can feel free to try new things without worrying that it might not turn out how you like it.  If you like how it turns out, you can add it as a “tip-in” (taped to the...
