Books and Journals – Bible Art Journaling

Because Bible Art Journaling has grown in popularity, book publishers have taken note.  If you go to amazon.com, christianbook, Lifeway and other stores – you will probably find at least one style of Bible designed for Art Journaling.  And if you can’t find a Bible, you will most certainly find a journal! This is – in part – due to the division over whether or not the art should travel over the margin onto the

Bible Art Journaling – Creativity and Worship

Bible Art Journaling takes mom’s new hobby – coloring – and takes it up to a higher level.  While coloring is relaxing and stress-relieving, Bible Art Journaling uses coloring – along with sketching, tracing, designing, and lettering – and allows you to embrace your creativity and worship the Lord at the same time. Bible Art Journaling I have always been one to highlight, underscore, and make notes in the pages of Scripture. (In fact, I

Coloring Pens, Pencils and Markers

Yesterday I posted about coloring books.  My new hobby! So today, I thought I would share the coloring pens, pencils and markers that I have used and what I think about them.  Awesome coloring pages need awesome coloring tools, right? The first pack of colored pencils I began using are Crayola pencils.  The kind that I buy for my kids for school.  Nothing wrong with them.  They are affordable and you can buy them almost

In the Word: Psalm 84 and Psalm 91

So I have had 2 really awesome Psalms to read this week in the final week of my Run to Him Bible study.  I have really enjoyed the Psalms readings and was reminded of so many of God’s amazing works. One thing I have to say about the book of Psalms is that David (and the other authors who penned these song-prayers to Yahweh) really knew how to capture the character of God in picture-words.

In the Word: Psalm 1

I have been continuing in my “Run to Him” Bible study – and it’s really been awesome.  I have enjoyed the variety of Psalms that this study walks through and the questions to answer and consider even familiar passages in a whole new way. Can I just say again – that I am constantly moved by the Word on these pages of Scripture – that continue to speak the message of Redemption – over the

In The Word: Psalm 34

Last week was one of those busy-every-day, can’t-catch-your-breath kind of weeks.  For the second week in a row.   It was exhausting on many levels and when Friday rolled around – my off-work day – I still had a lot on my plate with errands to run, laundry to do, and preparation for a big PTO fundraiser at school.  Needless to say, at one point in the day I was tearful with all of the
