Bible Journaling [Christian Trend]

2017-07-16 13.57.43


If you haven’t heard about Bible journaling, don’t feel left out- it’s a new trend that’s circulating through the Christian community among women and girls.

Bible Journaling Basics: 


Bible journaling is an artistic expression in your Bible, such as using paints, stickers, washi tape, glitter, pens, markers and more. It’s kind of like scrapbooking in your Bible, or creating images and word art with verses. Many women do this as a form of worship.

Bible journaling

The idea was “founded” by a woman named Shanna Noel, and she has partnered with DaySpring to bring about her company, Illustrated Faith, which offers tools and techniques for Bible Journaling. 

From her website, Shanna address why she uses a journaling Bible: “I am able to understand and relate to the word in a way that I have never been able to before. Allowing myself to take what God is teaching me and relate it directly to a verse that is speaking to me is making me fall in love with my bible all over again… Bringing the words to life through color and illustration is such a gift to my personal walk with God.” Some people may find this problematic or even sinful, and she addresses that too: “Honestly, we know this isn’t for everyone. We GET that this is for visual learners or those that experience worship through living color!… Remember this is about the process of documenting the whispers of God in your heart.”

Personally, I have loved Bible journaling. I just came across it a few weeks ago, and have already read quite a bit more of my Bible than I would have otherwise. It’s an intentional way to spend some time in God’s Word and really meditate on what it is saying.

Have you ever heard of or tried Bible journalling? If so, what’s been your experience with it?

We’d love to hear what you think!

  • I love how it looks! I got a journaling Bible before I even knew what the trend was. Of course, I have yet to journal in it. I think you have motivated me.

    • Thank you! Definitely give it a shot- I love how therapeutic it is and how much I am reading the Bible now. When you do end up Bible journaling, take some pics and share with us! Dani

  • I’ve never heard of Bible journaling, but am inspired to try this! I have alternated between journaling notes on the side to not journaling at all. But lately, I’ve not been reading as much as I’d like (code for not reading at all!!). I’ve just recently started getting creative with my daily calendar and would love to do the same with my Bible. I think this will definitely kick start my devotional time again – thanks so much for sharing!

    • You’re welcome! I hope this can be an inspiration to really kick off an inspiring creative outlet. I love doing my Bible journaling. I always find the time goes by so quickly! Dani
