*************************************************

 Over the past few years, I have shared many posts on the topic of Bible journaling. I have shared some of my favorite supplies, I have shared my personal page creations, I have even shared some how tos on favorite techniques...

But WHY do I love journaling? Why am I so passionate about sharing it with others?

Recently I received a card from Dayspring that truly summed it up for me:


A post shared by Randi (@randikaye) on

If you teach a woman how to journal in her Bible...
She will linger longer in the Word!
And when she lingers longer...
She will listen and learn.
And when she learns...
She will live her faith.
And when she lives her faith...
Great things happen.

How beautiful is that sentiment?

But it's not just pretty words, it really is true. You see, it's not JUST about creating artwork or splattering some paint around, it truly is about that time spent in the Word.

Now personally, I'd already read my Bible before I started Bible journaling, but still I found myself spending more time in specific verses, really reflecting on what those meant and how they applied to my own life. I have heard from many others who have said that before journaling they had NEVER read their Bible and now? They're in love! Sometimes we need that little something that helps to draw us in, and for so many Bible journaling has become just that.

I have grown in my faith, I have grown in my understanding of the Bible (though I still have a lot to learn!) and I have made some wonderful Christian women whom I now call friend... all because of Bible journaling! Is it any wonder I want to share it with the world?

Today as part of the Inspirational Giveaway Hop, I am giving one very lucky reader the chance to win a Bible journaling surprise--- this could include stickers, die cuts, washi tape, scripture cards... you name it!
