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.
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.
