Bible Journaling: Spring & Easter Edition

Spring is in the air and Easter is just around the corner. New life is all around us, reminding us of the new life that we were given when Jesus hung on the cross. Needless to say, there is a lot of inspiration all around for Bible journaling!

Not sure where to begin? Today I'm sharing some ideas:

Journaling Ideas

  • Let It Bloom. Nothing says spring quite like floral, so bringing them into your journaling can be a great way to celebrate spring. Use watercolors for soft pastels or go bright and vibrant. Stickers are a great way to bring in  flowers as well.
  • Religious Easter Symbols. There are so many great Easter symbols straight from the Bible that we can incorporate into our journaling. From the three crosses on a hill to the crown of thorns, these are all perfect additions to our Easter journaling.
  • Mainstream Easter Symbols. In addition to the traditional religious symbols, I love bringing in more mainstream symbols too. Add some eggs or a bunny for some fun. 
  • Butterflies. Butterflies shout spring to me, a reminder of the change of seasons and brand new life.
