Hey there, my beautiful creative! 

Build Your Faith Walk with Bible Journaling + My Guide to Grow Your Faith Walk. 

Let's jump headfirst into something that's not just about journaling but about deepening our connection with our faith. That's right, we're talking about Bible journaling – a game-changer for our spiritual walk! Get ready to put pen to paper in a way that stirs our souls and brings us closer to God. Once you begin it will nourish your soul and connect you to your faith like never before.

So, picture this: You've got your favorite Bible in one hand, maybe its worn from years of love or maybe you are just learning, and in the other, a set of colorful pens ready to bring those sacred words to life. But wait, there's more! Before you start, let's talk essentials: Exactly what you need to get started.

  • The Right Journal: When it comes to Bible journaling, you'll want a journal specifically designed for the task – one with thick, sturdy pages that can handle your creative outpouring. Look for something that speaks to your style, whether it's minimalist chic or bursting with vibrant colors. You have options, too: you can use a standalone journal with pages for notes, coloring, and reflecting, or you can opt for a journal that's integrated into your Bible itself.
  • Quality Pens: Ah, pens – the unsung heroes of the journaling world! And one of my obsessions. You don’t really want to know how many pens I have. With that said you will want to Invest in a set of archival-quality pens that won't bleed through the pages of your Bible. Think fine-tipped markers, gel pens, or even colored pencils for that extra pop of flair.
  • Tabs and Stickers: Make navigating your Bible a breeze with tabs for different books and sections. This was key for me, even though I was raised in the church I have a hard time remembering where in the Bible certain books are. Plus, who doesn't love a good sticker? Sprinkle some inspirational decals throughout your journal for that added dose of motivation.
  • Creative Fabrica: This website offers a treasure trove of resources to add to your arsenal of supplies, from beautiful fonts to intricate illustrations that will take your journaling to the next level.

Now that we've got our supplies in order, let's talk about the different ways you can dive into Bible journaling:

  • Verse Mapping: Ever read a verse and thought, "Wow, there's so much more here"? That's where verse mapping comes in. Break down a passage word by word, exploring its meaning and how it applies to your life.

  • Bullet Journaling: For all my fellow organization junkies out there, bullet journaling is a game-changer. Use symbols, lists, and trackers to document your spiritual journey and set goals for growth.

But wait, why bother with Bible journaling in the first place? Well, let me break it down for you:

  • Deeper Connection: When you take the time to engage with scripture in a hands-on way, something magical happens – you forge a deeper connection with the Word and with God himself.
  • Personal Reflection: Bible journaling isn't just about decorating pages; it's about reflecting on what those words mean to you personally. It's a chance to wrestle with questions, celebrate victories, and find solace in times of struggle.
  • Spiritual Growth: As you dive into scripture and pour your heart onto the page, you'll find yourself growing in ways you never thought possible. Bible journaling isn't just a hobby – it's a catalyst for spiritual transformation.

So, you've got your Bible journaling supplies ready to go, but you might be wondering, "Where do I start?" Don't worry, I've got you covered with my guide to expanding your faith walk. First things first, carve out intentional time each day to spend with God. Whether it's in the quiet of the morning or the stillness of the evening, make space for prayer, reflection, and scripture reading. Next, dive into the Word with an open heart and a curious mind. Don't be afraid to ask questions, wrestle with doubts, and seek out answers. And remember, faith is a journey, not a destination. Embrace the twists and turns, the highs and lows, knowing that God is walking alongside you every step of the way. So go ahead, take that leap of faith, and watch as your spiritual walk unfolds in beautiful, unexpected ways.

Together, let's dive deeper, seek truth, and watch as our faith walks are forever changed. And remember if you need me you can reach me at I would love to hear all about your bible journaling and how I can pray for you.
